Blackhawks-Bruins: An Original-Six Showdown in Chicago

Craig NuzzoCorrespondent INovember 11, 2008

The Chicago Blackhawks (8-3-3) will be facing off against the Boston Bruins (7-3-3) at the United Center on Wednesday, November 12 at 7:30 PM.

Both teams are serious contenders for a Stanley Cup this year.

The 'Hawks have proved that by being 6-0-2 at home, and winning their last four games. The 'Hawks will seek out their best winning streak in nearly seven years at the United Center against the Bruins.

Speaking of the United Center, the 'Hawks average the highest attendance at home in the league. That's awesome news!

The Bruins have won six of their last seven. That is self explanatory.

How about the goaltenders for the Chicago Blackhawks?

It doesn't seem to matter who they put in net—they still win games due to the stellar performances by the men on the ice.

Cristobal Huet saved 22 of 23 against the Calgary Flames to earn his second-straight victory. Even so, Huet has not consecutively started for the 'Hawks yet. Statically, he should Wednesday night, he has a 10-3-0 record against the Bruins.

Joel Quenneville really seemed to get the 'Hawks going after a poor start with former coach Denis Savard.

Hopefully he can continue that trend Wednesday night! Go Hawks!

My prediction: 4-2 in favor of the 'Hawks.

Look for Toews to add another goal to his stats.
