The Chicago Blackhawks are 7-0-2 in the second half of back-to-back sets this season. Extending that success won't be easy.
The Blackhawks breezed past the Colorado Avalanche at home on Friday, winning 7-2. But the second half of the back-to-back involves a trip to St. Louis, the team that's chasing them in the Central Division. The Blues have already beaten the Blackhawks twice this season, including once at Scottrade Center, where St. Louis is 14-3-2.
Here's a look at all of the action scheduled for Saturday:
Boston Bruins at Ottawa Senators -- Don't be surprised if there's some rancor between these teams; they're playing the back end of a home-and-home series that began with a 5-0 victory for the Bruins in Boston on Friday. Reilly Smith had two of Boston's four third-period goals as the Bruins blew the game open in the final 20 minutes. The Senators hope Craig Anderson, who's expected to be back in goal, will be able to build on a 5-0 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night
