Blackhawks vs. Avalanche: Live Score, Updates and Analysis

Brad Kurtzberg@@sealshockeyContributor IMarch 9, 2013

Avalanche 6, Blackhawks 2; FINAL SCORE


The Chicago Blackhawks are halfway through this abbreviated 48-game NHL season and they have yet to lose in regulation (21-0-3).

Chicago is not without issues, however.

In their 3-2 win on Thursday over Colorado, the club lost Patrick Sharp to an injury midway through the game and they now have to carry on without the talented Sharp for the next few weeks.

Still, the Blackhawks have been getting contributions from all of the players on their roster.

There are 13 different players who have scored at least one game-winning-goal for the Blackhawks this season. The latest was tough guy Dan Carcillo who netted the game-winner in the final minute against Colorado.

Both Corey Crawford and backup Ray Emery have played exceptionally well this year for Chicago.

The Avalanche played a smart and efficient road game Thursday in Chicago and had an excellent chance to end the Blackhawks' streak.

They will need continued strong goaltending from Semyon Varlamov and the ability to finish the quality chances they get against the Blackhawks.

The Avs were not intimidated by the Hawks Thursday and they should be a confident group heading into tonight.
