What To Watch For

•   Patrick Kane has 10 points in his last three contests (1G, 9A), and his linemates Dylan Strome (6) and Alex DeBrincat (6) have a combined 12 points over their last three games. Strome has four goals and two assists, and DeBrincat has two goals and four assists.

•   Patrick Kane’s recent scoring wave has him at 68 points on the season. Kane needs just two points to record his 10th season with 70-plus points. Kane has logged 70-plus points in five of the last six seasons, missing that threshold by just four points last year in the shortened (56 games) season

•   Brandon Hagel scored two goals against the Boston Bruins in a losing effort last Thursday night in Boston. Hagel has logged six points (three goals, three assists) in his last four games for the Blackhawks.
