Chicago Blackhawks take on the Winnipeg Jets tonight north of the border tonight, and they will be looking for their first win of the season against the Central Divisional rival.
The Chicago Blackhawks travel to Jonathan Toews hometown tonight, and it’s Toews who is starting to play like his old self.
Toews scored the game winning goal on Wednesday night in overtime, and with his linemates Richard Panik and Nick Schmaltz scoring goals also picked up a couple assists. The Hawks are always a better team when Toews is playing at a high level which he seems to be closing in on after an extremely slow start to the season.

The Hawks have won three straight games and are looking to build a nice winning streak in the dog days of winter. The Hawks haven’t held to their normal winning cycles this season so there is no reason for them not to put together a lot of points in February when they normally struggle.
One reason to be excited about the Hawks is that the kids are starting to really hit their stride and find their games instead of just logging minutes. This kind of production will only help them in April and May and open up the ice for Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin.
That being said, the Chicago Blackhawks still need to find a way to pick up a win against the Winnipeg Jets that has had their number all season long. Will tonight be the night they finally break through?
