NBCSN’s coverage of the 2019-20 NHL season continues with Tuesday’s matchup between the Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
These teams faced off on Saturday in Dallas, with the Stars winning 2-1 after a shootout. Roope Hintz (10th of season) and Olli Maatta (first of season) scored in the first period, before Joe Pavelski and Tyler Seguin each scored in the shootout for Dallas.
After beating Vegas 4-2 last night, Dallas has now won seven in a row, tying the longest winning streak in franchise history (done 4 times previously). They can set the record tonight. Since starting 1-7-1, Dallas is 14-1-1 in its last 16 games.
The Blackhawks enter this game on a three-game losing streak (0-2-1), which comes on the heels of a four-game winning streak. Chicago has been up and down all season, and if they are to snap out of this rut, they will have to do so against top competition.
Jonathan Toews has bounced back after a slow start. In October, he had one goal and one assist in 11 games. So far in November, he has three goals and seven assists in 12 games. Patrick Kane enters this game on a 12-game point streak (8G-13A in span).
