After another impressive performance Tuesday night against the Blues, the Blackhawks will push to continue their success tonight against the Stars in Dallas tonight. Coverage begins at 7:00 with Blackhawks Pregame Live only on Comcast SportsNet.

Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa continue to lead the undefeated Blackhawks' roster with 5 points each as the team heads to Dallas for their fourth game of the season.

After ending the Kings' Stanley Cup celebration with a 5-2 victory and defeating the Coyotes -- who ended Chicago's postseason run in 2012 -- in Glendale, the Blackhawks went into Tuesday's matchup against another 2-0 team in their home opener. As big as the BlackhawksBlues rivalry has become, St. Louis has struggled in the past in Chicago, winning only one of their last 10 regular season matchups at the United Center. Tuesday was no different.

"The Blackhawks came real hard in the first and got on top of our defensemen early," Blues forward Andy McDonald told CSNChicago.com after the game. "Even on our wingers coming out of the zone, they were right on top of us."

The Blackhawks have created momentum early in their first three games, and the strong balance between their four lines has already caused the team to see a close resemblance to the 2010 championship squad.

Now the Hawks begin a two-game road trip in Dallas, facing a team that's won two of its first three games this season. In his first season with the Stars, NHL veteran Jaromir Jagr leads his team in points with two goals and two assists while Ray Whitney -- who was acquired during the offseason from the Coyotes -- is close behind with one goal and two assists.

Tonight marks the first of three matchups between the Blackhawks and Stars during the course of the shortened 2013 campaign. Make sure to catch all the action tonight on Comcast SportsNet and join the Blackhawks conversation on Twitter by using HawksTalk.
