FACING THE BLACKHAWKS

Tonight's game is the second of three meetings between the two clubs this season. The Flames took the first game 3-2 in a shootout, with Sam Bennett and Sean Monahan scoring in regulation and Kris Versteeg scoring the lone goal in a seven-round shootout. The Flames and Blackhawks will close out their season series on Nov. 18 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Flames are 6-3-1 in their last 10 road games vs. Chicago and have won three of their last five games at the United Center.

The Flames' last five victories against the Blackhawks have all come after regulation time - four wins in overtime, one win in a shootout. This marks the only time in franchise history that where the Flames have had four or more victories against an opponent come in extra time.
