After a wildly successful Circus Trip, the Blackhawks return home to the United Center to take on Central Division rival St. Louis. The 'Hawks come in off wins against two of the Western Conference's top teams in Anaheim and Los Angeles, so a matchup with the Central-leading Blues provides an opportunity to keep their momentum going and get themselves closer to the top spot in the division.
Goaltender Corey Crawford is out for the 'Hawks, so Antti Raanta will be in net. It'll be a good test for Raanta, as he hasn't seen game action since being sent down to Rockford before the Circus Trip.
Here's the first period game thread. Go 'Hawks!
