After putting in a grind-it-out effort against one of the league's top teams to down the New York Rangers 4-3 on Friday night, the Chicago Blackhawks will look to build off said effort when they host the Los Angeles Kings tonight at the United Center.
It's hard to believe that the Blackhawks have only scored two goals in three games against LA this year, and not since late November. In the season series, Chicago took the first game in Los Angeles 2-1 on goals by Jonathan Toews and Andrew Brunette, but in the latter two matches, fell at the hands of Jonathan Quick, 2-0 and 4-0 respectively.
Chicago remains optimistic that franchise player and captain Jonathan Toews will return to the lineup soon from suffering a concussion several weeks ago and could be back as soon as Tuesday, but is still out for tonight's game.
