    1. Chicago Blackhawks

    Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss two weeks with an upper-body injury, the team announced on Wednesday.

    He suffered the injury in a 3-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.

    Toews left the game after taking a hit from Matt D'Agostini along the boards in the first period. Toews left the ice favoring his right shoulder.

    "The tests that were done, I think we got a pretty good read on him," coach Joel Quenneville said on Wednesday. "I think [Tuesday] night we had a pretty good idea, and he's feeling OK [Wednesday]. That's kind of where we are at."

    Toews has 15 goals and 18 assists and is second on the team with 33 points.

    "Frustrating replaced embarrassing. Missed opportunities were substituted for poor effort. A tough start to the third period was the talk rather than a brutal start to the game.

    The words to describe the Blue Jackets' performance last night in the United Center were kinder and gentler from their troubled coach and players. But they still represent the language of losing.

    And the Jackets are becoming quite fluent in that tongue.

    The Chicago Blackhawks scored three times in the third period, including two power-play goals, on the way to a 4-1 win. The Jackets played two solid periods, but it wasn't nearly enough to prevent their sixth loss in the past seven games.

    The Jackets' score came from a Derick Brassard power-play goal after the Blackhawks had taken a 4-0 lead.

    "You can't be close in this league," Jackets coach Scott Arniel said. "When it's a 1-0 game, we had to find a way to get that evened up when they gave us opportunities.

    "We're obviously fragile again. We will have to work our way out of it."

    Can this club, as currently constructed, dig out from the 3-9-3 slump it's been in since Thanksgiving?

    The NHL holiday roster freeze ended at midnight last night and there are more than a few fans imploring general manager Scott Howson to upgrade the roster before it's too late. Faced with a similar situation a season ago, Howson added Chris Clark and Milan Jurcina from the Washington Capitals for Jason Chimera."

    "Patrick Kane is likely to return to the lineup while goalie Marty Turco will get his second straight start when the Blackhawks visit St. Louis on Tuesday.

    "He skated pretty well today and felt good," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after Monday's practice at the United Center. "He looked good today."

    Kane participated in full drills during Monday's hour-long workout and confirmed he would travel to St. Louis.

    "I'm going to skate in the morning (on Tuesday) and then we'll make a decision after that," said Kane, who has been out since Dec. 5. "I would say it's pretty probable."

    Kane said his left ankle injury and subsequent recovery process came an an opportune time.

    "I'm pretty happy with where I'm at," he said. "It's a long season and if there's any time ... to be injured it's right now because down the stretch you want to be healthy and ready to go and make sure you're playing your best hockey.""

    Blackhawks Circus Road Trip

    With a record of 9-10-1 the Blackhawks start their Circus Road Trip in Canada. The first matchup is against a team that can only beat the Blackhawks, the Edmonton Oilers(4-9-3). The game starts at 8:30. Friday night the Hawks are in Calgary to take on the Flames(7-9-0), again with a start at 8:30. Then straight to a conference rival the next day, the Vancouver Canucks(7-4-2) at 9:00. These games are all on CSN Chicago for the homes, check your local listing to see the Hawks in action.

    The next leg of the trip starts on the 24th against another conference rival, the San Jose Sharks(8-5-2) at 9:30 pm CST. Friday the Hawks travel to Anaheim Ducks(10-7-2) at a rare 3 pm start. Saturday the Hawks take on the Los Angeles Kings(12-3-0) at 9:30.

    There are three things the Hawks fix during this roadtrip. The first is letting the opponent skate past the defense and get in a one on one with Marty Turco or Corey Crawford. This hurt the Blackhawks a few time, once against the Oilers. If you recall that bad loss. The next is getting scored on more than once in a quick period of time, simply don't get scored on right away after they were just scored on. Finally the stars of the team need to score and get assists. This is slowly starting to come true, lets hope the Hawks go above 500 in this roadtrip!

    2. New York Rangers

    Playing the defending Stanley Cup champions to end a stretch of four games in six nights is hardly the blueprint for success.

    Don't tell that to the New York Rangers, who stood up to the Chicago Blackhawks and skated off with a tense 3-2 victory on Monday night.

    Henrik Lundqvist, fresh off his 25th NHL shutout two nights earlier, had enough of a challenge in turning aside 33 shots, but his teammates blocked 33 other drives that never got through to him.

    2. Minnesota Wild

    Though Chicago has started slowly after several changes to last season's championship roster, the Blackhawks still know how to find that winning edge.

    Marty Turco bounced back from a benching with 25 saves, Troy Brouwer moved up to the top line and got a goal and an assist, and the Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Saturday.

    "It wasn't so much a little monkey. It was a big gorilla on my back," said Brouwer of his first score, following a 22-goal season.

    The Blackhawks (7-5-1) have a big target on their backs this season, too, and particularly while Marian Hossa sits out with an upper body injury they're missing some of that Stanley Cup swagger. They've still got a lot of young talent, though, starting with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane.

    2. Edmonton Oilers

    The Edmonton Oilers ended a six-game losing streak and gained some respect.

    Sam Gagner, Ales Hemsky and Jordan Eberle scored in a 1:09 span late in the first period, Gagner added an empty-netter in the third and the Oilers beat the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks 7-4 on Friday night.

    Rookie Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist, and Andrew Cogliano and Ryan Jones also scored for Edmonton, which was 0-4-2 after winning its first two games of the season.

    Edmonton had the NHL's worst record last season.

    "We knew it was a big test, obviously them being Stanley Cup champions and for a young team like us," Hall said. "Through two periods we played very well. Maybe we got a little nervous there in the third period, but we hung together and that's all that matters."

    Oilers coach Tom Renney was encouraged.
