Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks at Stars (7:30 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Odds, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

This should have been game number 1,001 for Patrick Kane in his NHL career, but due to scheduling conflicts earlier in the season, tonight is game No. 1,000.

Unfortunately, it cannot be at the United Center, but rather in Dallas, as the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Dallas Stars. It’s been a month since the Stars and Blackhawks met, and both teams have been heading in opposite directions since.

Chicago has gone 9-4-1 since February 7th and Dallas has a 2-6-4 record in that same stretch. The Blackhawks enter tonight sitting in fourth-place in the Central Division based on points (31) and points percentage (.596), while the Stars are in seventh on points (19) and sixth based on points percentage (.475).
