Inside the matchup: Red Wings vs. Blackhawks

NHL.com @NHL

The Chicago Blackhawks continue their longest homestand of the season when the Detroit Red Wings come to United Center in this week's edition of Wednesday Night Rivalry (7:30 p.n. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Chicago is 2-0-2 at the halfway point of an eight-game homestand, but the Blackhawks are coming off back-to-back victories against the New Jersey Devils (3-1) and Pittsburgh Penguins (2-1 in a shootout). Overall, they are 4-0-2 in their past six games and are trying to make up ground on the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues, the top two teams in the Central Division.

Detroit is 0-2-1 in its past three games and is coming off a 2-0 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. That was one of only two games for the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena this month; the visit to Chicago begins a six-game trip that will include a swing through California.
