The streaking Chicago Blackhawks (10-3-1) could be minus a key player against the Washington Capitals (8-3-1) tomorrow at United Center.
Anisimov is the co-leader on the ‘Hawks with 17 points (8G, 9A), tied with Patrick Kane (5G, 12A).
“Obviously, [if he’s out], you’re missing a guy that has had a tremendous start for us in all areas of our team game,” said head coach Joel Quenneville. “So, we’re still hopeful that he could play.”
The Blackhawks have won seven straight, in large part because their goalie, Corey Crawford, has been excellent, and their veteran core has stepped up with big goal after big goal.
The Caps, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing 3-0 home loss to San Jose on Tuesday. Prior to that, they’d won five straight.
