Anaheim Ducks (34-22-10) at Chicago Blackhawks (42-18-5)
7:30PM Central/5:30 Pacific
Anaheim: Jonathan Bernier
Chicago: Corey Crawford
GOALS PER GAME:
The Hawks haven't faced the Ducks since November, a game Chicago won, and they are 7-2-1 versus Anaheim in the last 10 meetings. All that said, this is still a strong Ducks team.
The big news tonight is the return of Johnny Oduya alongside Niklas Hjalmarsson. One of the last memories Hawk fans have of Oduya was anchoring essentially a four-man defense rotation that beat the Ducks in the 2015 Western Conference finals—even after a physical barrage that Duck center Ryan Kesler predicted "no human could handle."
Those were the days.
I'll have a recap tomorrow.
