After falling to the Wild on Thursday night, the Blackhawks have returned to Chicago to host the Ducks tonight. Catch all the action beginning at 6:30 on Comcast SportsNet with Blackhawks Pregame Live.

After recording six straight wins on their annual Circus Trip, the Blackhawks have dropped their last two in 4-3 losses to the Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild.
