Blackhawks Go After Sole NHL Lead 12/10/13
December 10, 2013
The race for the top point total in the NHL goes on tonight when Chicago visits Dallas on one of twelve games on the schedule.
The Blackhawks and Anaheim each have 47 points to top the league, but Chicago has a game in hand. Rookie Antti Raanta is expected in the nets for the Blackhawks while regular goalies Corey Crawford and Nikolai Khabibulin (hah-bee-BOO'-lihn) deal with lower body injuries. Raanta is 3-0-1 this season.
St. Louis is six points back of the NHL lead, but heads into tonight's road game at Winnipeg with the fewest total losses in the league. The Blues are 19-6-3.
