This Week's Schedule
Game of the Week
Chicago isn't exactly happy with the outcome of its last encounter with Minnesota. Don't expect similar results to last month's Stadium Series thrashing of the defending Cup champs. This time Chicago has Minnesota right where they want them - on United Center ice. The Blackhawks are loaded for bear and are heavy favorites for their fourth championship in seven seasons. Throw in the fact they have the league's leading scorer, and that the game is being aired on national television, and you have your GOTW.
