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

Chicago Blackhawks

This is one of the tougher stretches on the calendar for the Blackhawks, getting Boston, Pittsburgh and now Dallas in a row. Dallas has been one of the best teams in the entire NHL in November (6-2-2) and are in first place in the Central Division. Their +21 goal differential ranks second in the Western Conference and they’re 5-2-1 at home. The Blackhawks, meanwhile, have lost their last four straight… but get Seth Jones back in the lineup.

Dallas Stars


What to Watch For

  • Jonathan Toews needs one assist to reach 500 in his career.
  • Toews (260) is one even-strength goal from tying Denis Savard for fourth in Blackhawks franchise history.
  • This will mark the second time three games the Blackhawks will face one of the other two teams in the NHL’s top three in faceoff percentage. They faced Boston (second) on Saturday and Dallas comes into tonight’s game ranked third.
  • Six different Dallas Stars have taken at least 121 faceoffs this season and all of them except Roope Hintz (49.6) is better than 52 percent at the dot.
  • As you can see above, Dallas ranks in the top ten in every team statistical category. They’re rolling.
  • Jason Robertson comes into the game riding a 12-game point streak. He has 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) during the streak.
  • In their last game against the Avalanche, Jamie Benn took a tough right hook to the chops from Josh Manson.
