ESPN NHL Scores: Chicago Blackhawks  vs. Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings have lost two straight and are starting to look more like the hockey team they were predicted to be. More losses, regardless of the opponent, should be their future.

The Chicago Blackhawks have won 6-straight and the National Media attributes the streak to Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews playing together. Can they make it to seven games?

Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings lost their 3-game winning streak to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night. As an attendee of the game, you could visibly see the lack of speed and pace from the Red Wings as well as the injured state of star player Dylan Larkin.

Even while injured, Dylan Larkin is leading the way for this group. His 52 points in 54 games are a sneeze away from being a point-per-game, but it is even more impressive when you consider his low PDO score of 98.1 and his low oiSH% of 7.8%.

The Red Wings are still in the middle of the league when it comes to shot% (9.5) and save% (90.3), but their devastatingly low CorsiFor% (47.5) will ensure the losses will continue to come.

Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks have won 6-straight and you’d be hard pressed to find a box score that doesn’t include Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. For years the two had been separated to create balance on the roster, but as the team continued to fall in that standings, this felt like a last resort.

Patrick Kane is playing at an MVP caliber pace this season. His 79 points correlate with his 102 PDO score. The score isn’t in that zone of statistically significant (meaning his numbers should come down), but his oiSH% is. At 12.4%, Kane May have seen a dip in his numbers, but putting Jonathan Toews on his line ensures it would have to be a catastrophic meltdown, for major changes to occur.

Toews and Kane being reunited have definitely curbed the chances of the offense losing any momentum.

The Red Wings are trending downward and the Blackhawks are trending up. With the increased scoring and the streaky nature of Patrick Kane and the Blackhawks, this could be a blowout. Don’t forget that Wings just played yesterday.

Pick: Blackhawks -160, Over 6.5

Yzerman stressed patience, said it’s going to take time. #RedWings

Yzerman confirms he will retain Blashill as coach. Praised his role in developing young players. #RedWings

"I have some ideas on what I want to do (in terms of bringing people in from Tampa)" - Yzerman - "There are a lot of good people here." #RedWings

" I didn't feel good about the team struggling," - Yzerman #RedWings

Yzerman: when I left, I felt I'd be 100 when I get a chance to be GM of the Wings. Felt jim Nill would replace Holland, and so on....#RedWings

Very interested to see how Barratt rebounds from his injury. A lot of folks are sold on him being an impact player for the #Blackhawks, but his meteoric rise last season gives me pause on sample size. Another year in college, post-injury, will help solidify his potential.

1982: #Habs, #Oilers & #NorthStars. 1986: #Flyers, #Nordiques & #Blackhawks. After latter, DSF went from best-of-five to best-of-seven.

Great game 6 in Dallas. #Blackhawks have a lot of team sculpting to do to be on that level.
Side note: a plethora of arenas now outperform the United Center in many aspects from overall fan participation to total atmosphere throughout each game. Lots to fix on that front as well.

Congrats and thank you @DallasStars for beating the Preds from #Blackhawks fans
