Blackhawks Insider Tracey Myers and CSN's Chris Boden look ahead to the team's upcoming road trip against the Canadiens and Maple Leafs in the latest Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana Honda dealers.
A season-long eight-game winning streak has the Blackhawks surging toward the top of the Central Division standings.
The Blackhawks currently sit just two points behind the Dallas Stars in the Central, and could return to Chicago in sole possession of first place after a brief two-game road trip in Canada.

Not like the Blackhawks are playing like they need it, but they will catch two major breaks in Canada. The Montreal Canadiens will be without star goaltender Carey Price and the Toronto Maple Leafs won't have leading scorer James van Riemsdyk — the older brother of Blackhawks defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk — in their lineup against Chicago.
"You have to take advantage of the situation," CSNChicago.com Blackhawks Insider Tracey Myers said. "The Dallas Stars do not play again until Friday so the Blackhawks will have at least one game more when the Stars are done on Friday night."
