The fans at BB&T Center will be treated to a game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Florida Panthers when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS (10-8-3): Chicago has embraced a rather simplistic solution to a complicated season-long dilemma that was its ailing power play, and it seems to be working. “Shoot the puck, retrieve the puck, shoot again,” forward Artem Anisimov told the Chicago Sun-Times of the team’s units with the man advantage, who have converted 6-of-17 opportunities in their last four games after a dreadful 2-for-33 stint in the previous eight. The Blackhawks will aim to improve upon their 25th-ranked power play (16.5 percent) against the Panthers’ 30th-ranked penalty kill (73.2 percent).

ABOUT THE PANTHERS (8-11-2): Captain Derek MacKenzie returned to practice on Friday and could be in line to end a five-game absence due to a lower-body injury versus the Blackhawks. “Once he gets off the ice, we’re going to talk to him, see how he feels, how he dealt with the practice and then make a decision whether (Saturday’s) the day or it’s going to be on the road trip,” coach Bob Boughner told the Sun-Sentinel. Defenseman Mark Pysyk’s availability is also in question as he sustained a lower-body injury versus the Maple Leafs despite logging a season-high 22:41 of ice time and unleashing five shots on goal.

Oddsmakers opened the Panthers as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Blackhawks, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

Although Patrick Kane scored twice in his last contest, several other high-profile members of the Chicago Blackhawks are mired in significant goal-scoring slumps. Captain Jonathan Toews, Brandon Saad and Patrick Sharp look to put an end to those difficulties as the Blackhawks complete a three-game road trip against the Florida Panthers on Saturday at the BB&T Center.

“It never gets easy. You think about it all the time. You feel that pressure in tight games, and in losses, definitely,” said Sharp, who has failed to score in 15 consecutive games. Toews has just two goals – including one into an empty net – in his last 16 contests while Saad has one tally in his last 15 games for Chicago, which has overcome a lack of offense to record at least a point in four of its last five outings (3-1-1). The Blackhawks will look to solve Roberto Luongo, who upped his save percentage to .955 in his last six starts after turning away 43 shots in Wednesday’s 2-1 shootout win over Toronto. The 38-year-old hasn’t yielded more than one even-strength goal in his last three games overall and sports a .931 save percentage with five shutouts in his career versus Chicago.

Last time out for Florida, they were a 2-1 winner as they battled the Maple Leafs at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Panthers at +103 were rewarded, while the 3 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Blackhawks were a 3-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Lightning. That made winners of bettors who got Tampa Bay at -157 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.
