Blackhawks vs. Senators: Chicago Looks to Start Road Trip Strong Against Struggling Ottawa Squad


Duclair was allowed to leave the Blackhawks via restricted free agency after the 2017-18 season, but has found his groove in Canada’s capital city, as he is tied for 13 th in the league in goals.


The Blackhawks will also meet up with former center Artem Anisimov, who was traded to Ottawa in an offseason swap that brought Zack Smith to Chicago.


The Blackhawks are meeting the Senators during a downward turn for the club, as Ottawa has lost seven consecutive games, including a 2-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.


He is currently tied for the NHL lead in goal scoring among rookies, and he has found a comfortable home on the top line alongside Jonathan Toews .


He scored a goal and added a helper in Saturday’s win over the Anaheim Ducks, and he’ll look to keep that positive momentum going on the team’s road trip.


Their next two games offer them a great opportunity to gain some ground while playing Eastern Conference opponents, as they’ll face Senators and Canadiens squads that are not currently in the playoff hunt in the East.
