The Chicago Blackhawks host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday Night Hockey on NBC Sports Network, a clash of the two dynasties of the past decade.
Unfortunately for the Blackhawks, they're struggling this season and don't appear to be contenders.
But two streaks also collide tonight, the Blackhawks' eight-game losing streak and the Blackhawks' eight-game win streak against the Penguins. One of those streaks will fall.
Chicago does hold an all-time win record against the Penguins, with a record of 74-42-17-2 in 135 games as well. Goalie Corey Crawford, who did not play against Winnipeg last night, has a career .952 save percentage against the Penguins, his best against any opponent. Both are statistics that bode well for the Blackhawks tonight.
The Blackhawks have also recalled forward Dylan Sikura and defenseman Carl Dahlstrom from the Rockford IceHogs in the AHL. Artem Anisimov is on injured reserve as part of the concussion protocol and forward Alexandre Fortin was assigned to Rockford.
Here is everything you need to know to watch all the Blackhawks coverage on NBC Sports.
