Blackhawks vs. Ducks Gameday Preview

Published November 12, 2022 at 2:01
The Blackhawks are looking to cap off their annual father's trip with a win tonight vs. the Ducks. The Blackhawks are on a bit of a cold stretch and have seemingly come back down to earth after their fast start to the season.

The Blackhawks currently 5-5-3 through their first 13 games to begin the season and are coming off of an overtime loss to the Kings Thursday night in Los Angeles. The Ducks are off to a dreadful 4-9-1 start through their first 14 games to begin their season. The Ducks also have a terrible goal differential of -25.

Some key players to watch in this one for the Hawks are Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. Toews continued his point production with an assist on Taylor Raddysh's first period powerplay goal against the Kings. Patrick Kane has been quiet over the last 3 games in which he has failed to register a point. If the offense wants to get back on track, Kane will need to find the score sheet.

Two key players to watch for on the Ducks are Troy Terry and Ryan Strome. Terry has 6 assists and 7 points in his last 5 games while Ryan Strome has 3 goals in his last 5 games.

The Blackhawks seemingly have an advantage in every key statistic category against the Ducks, who rank last or near last in the league in powerplay percentage, penalty kill percentage, faceoff percentage, and goals for and goals against per game. Hopefully the Hawks can right the ship and get back in the win column tonight.
