Chicago travels to Anaheim having lost 15 of 18 games, for the first of a back-to-back on the road, against the Ducks. The Blackhawks look to bounce back after a 3–2 loss on Sunday to the Flames.
Anaheim relies heavily on their top-notch goaltender John Gibson. The 25-year old bails out the Ducks on a nightly basis with his .926 save percentage, as the Ducks give up the most shots per game (35.7) in the league.
Corey Crawford, riding a personal five-game losing streak, will be in net tonight. The Montreal, QC native stopped 38 of 41 shots in his last start against Calgary.
As fans continue to struggle with hope for this team, Chicago finds itself -27 in goal differential, last in the NHL, and nine points out of the last wild-card spot. With that being said, enjoy the game.
