On Tuesday night, the 6-10-2 Chicago Blackhawks will face the 11-3-5 Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.
The Blackhawks are looking for a must-needed win. They have a little bit of momentum from their 1-0 road victory over the Vancouver Canucks in their last game. Brandon Hagel scored their only goal with 15:48 left in the third period, but it ended up being all they needed. Even though the Blackhawks won their last game, they have struggled to beat good teams this season.
The Calgary Flames are having an excellent season. They are on a three-game winning streak after shutting out the Boston Bruins 4-0 on the road on Sunday. Four players each scored one goal in that game. The Flames have scored 14 goals in their last three games against the Bruins, Islanders, and Sabres and have only given up two.
The Blackhawks have a chance at winning this game, but it will be quite challenging. They are playing on the road against one of the best teams in the NHL. They have momentum from winning five of their six last games, but the Flames also have momentum from winning their previous three games.
If the Blackhawks can limit the Flames’ scoring opportunities and put a lot of shots on goal against their strong defense, they may be able to outscore them or push the game to overtime and secure one point. If not, the Flames winning streak will be pushed to four.
