Phoenix Coyotes @ Chicago Blackhawks - Game #74 Preview - TEN! HAHAHA!

Here's the quick and dirty preview since it's my birthday so I get to be a little lazy.

The Coyotes roll into Chicago to try and extend their winning streak to 10 games. There's a lot on the line with the two teams being tied for the conference lead and being just ahead of San Jose for the Pacific. The Coyotes could also clinch a playoff birth with a win and a Calgary loss. 

Chicago hasn't played since Saturday when we beat them here and Jobing.com arena but it looks like Brent Seabrook will be back in the lineup for them. 

They guys had best get me a good birthday present!

STARTING GOALIES


GP MIN W L EGA GA GAA SA SV SV% SO
2009 - Ilya Bryzgalov 62 3652 39 18 139 2.28 1758 1619 .921 8

Bryz was a little shaky last time against the Hawks with a couple bad goals given up late in the game. The team saved his bacon, but they can only fight from behind like that so often. He'll need to step up his game tonight.


GP MIN W L EGA GA GAA SA SV SV% SO
2009 - Antti Niemi 28 1581 19 5 60 2.28 662 602 .909 5

We saw how good Niemi can be last time out as he wasn't letting too many bad rebounds out. The upside is that the few that he did let out we capitalized on.

Hey, it's about time for you to start putting the puck in the back of the net again just in time for the playoffs. Doan needs to get going so why not start now?
