It's hard to believe that halfway through the regular season, the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings are just now meeting for the first of six times tonight when the Hawks host the Wings at the United Center.
Over the last ten games, statistically speaking, the Blackhawks and Red Wings share virtually identical stats all around. Both teams have played very well of late. Chicago sports a 7-2-1 record in their last ten, while Detroit shares similar success with a 7-3 record through ten games. Chicago is tied with Vancouver for the NHL lead in the standings with 50 points, while Detroit sits not far behind Chicago with 47.
