Coming off a dominating road win, the Blackhawks return to the United Center on Friday night to take on the Flames, who will get Mikael Backlund back in the lineup.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Niklas Backstrom stopped 41 shots and the Minnesota Wild beat the Calgary Flames 3-0 on Tuesday night
for their fifth straight victory.
The Flames extended one series winning streak over the weekend to get back to .500. Their recent history versus the Wild seems to hint that getting over the even mark may prove to be more difficult.
