Chicago Blackhawks (36-19-9) vs Carolina (36-27-5)
8:30 PM EST FSC



Carolina coming off their 5th win in a row, and a shutout none the less, against the Rangers are facing off against a western conference playoff team while the Canes sit at 8th in the east. Ward and the Staal line have been great as of late.

Get ready to see Patrick Kane and Toews along with an old friend Ladd as Ruutu faces off against his old team.

Ward will be in net for Canes

Prediction:
4-2 Canes win

That was a good game. Shame we lost it, but we still got a point. Just gotta handle Dallas tomorrow night.

really good game. Ward just didn't have it in the shootout after having a stellar game. We still get a point though and need to take care of Dallas. Stall looks to be back to missing those shots he was making a few games ago.

he was starting to do better, he shut out all three players in the last one and was pretty decent in the one before. But yea generally speaking he hasn't been too good at it. That being said, he was the reason we even got to that shootout. He made some freaking amazing saves down the stretch to keep it close.

If you noticed in the shootout, minus the first shot that went five-hole, Cam knew where each shot was going and he played them all great he just missed the puck. The fact that we came out of this game with one point is a big step forward for this team. 6 weeks ago this was a game that the canes stood no chance to be in. They are playing much different hockey this time of the year and its going to make the difference come playoff time. Great game tonight guys. Just make sure you punish Dallas tomorrow night.

I completely agree with you, I was just noticing, besides the 2 shootouts before this, he seems to have trouble. I'm not arguing that he isn't a great game goalie, I just noticed he seems to struggle in shootouts.
