A rematch with the Boston Bruins looms this evening with the Blackhawks looking for revenge after dropping a heartbreaker to the Bruins at the TD Garden last week. Boston scored the game-winning goal with just 17 seconds left in the third period in that game. Brandon Hagel had two goals against the Bruins.

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.
Get Caught Up
The Blackhawks have averaged 3.5 even strength goals per game over their last 8 games — double their 1.75 average from their first 52 games.
But with the trade deadline now less than a week away, that really doesn't matter much in contrast.
