Blackhawks Look for Success at Home
By Todd McClamroch in News on Dec 7, 2007 4:37PM
The Chicago Blackhawks suffered only their second back-to back loss of the season on Wednesday and the first one in over a month. Something Blackhawks fans are not used to.
The Blackhawks' 3-2 loss to the Canucks came in the first of a four-game home stand that continues tonight versus the Anaheim Ducks. Eight of the next ten Blackhawks games are at home, which is good news. They could use some home-ice advantage to help them in the standings; they currently sit in fourth place in the Central.
The combination of home ice and some weaker opponents should help the Blackhawks earn some points over the next week. The Ducks, with a 13-12-4 record, are the best of the three upcoming opponents, while the L.A. Kings and Calgary Flames both sit at the bottom of their divisions and are below .500.
