Before the NHL’s trade deadline the Chicago Blackhawks acquired forward Michael Frolik and defenseman Chris Campoli. It didn’t take long to realize both players will have a significant impact on the team’s playoff push.
Former Blackhawks general manager Dale Tallon helped build the team that won the Stanley Cup last season. He had a big hand in drafting or signing the team’s core players that are still around, but that’s where it ends.
Not to long ago the Chicago Blackhawks were on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, but after an eight-game winning streak the defending Stanley Cup champs sit in forth place in the Western Conference.
For the first time since November 2009, the Chicago Blackhawks have won eight games in a row. The Hawks scored three in the first period and another two in the second. Toronto attempted to comeback, but could only close the gap to two goals.
The Chicago Blackhawks’ current six-game win streak was started by a 3-2 shoot out victory over an Eastern Conference team. If they want their streak to reach seven, the Blackhawks will have to be another team from the Eastern Conference.
The Chicago Blackhawks will take on the Dallas Stars on Friday night and not only will it be the first time Marty Turco faces his old team, it’ll be new acquired Michael Frolik’s Blackhawks’ debut.
The Chicago Blackhawks are under pressure to win games and acquire standings points. To try and do that against the third place Dallas Stars, the Blackhawks will turn to their veteran goalie.
The Chicago Blackhawks made their first trade of the season on Wednesday night when they sent Jack Skille and two prospects to the Florida Panthers for Michael Frolik and a goalie prospect.
The Chicago Blackhawks have traded Jack Skille along with two other players to the Florida Panthers.
