Hawks are nearly unbeatable at home this year, despite poor results on the road (seems to be a common trend among elite clubs). I really do hope that Dallas can steal themselves a couple of points, but it's going to be a challange - Toews or no Toews.
The only reasons for Petersen staying in i can think of is that he had a decent game last time out. That whole line was good but with Dowell out it's a good opportunity to try something new but there you go. Also we'l need to be good on D tonight and Fraser hasn't been great at that this season.
