The Chicago Blackhawks need a win tonight, to get that win though, they'll need to score some goals. 

The team is having a hard time putting the puck in the net, with a long list of struggling players:

Sharp: 0G in 15 games.

Panik: 0G in 12 games.

Keith: 0G in 21 games.

Schmaltz: 1G in 17 games.

Saad: 1G in 15 games.

Hartman: 1G in 13 games.

Toews: 2G in 16 games.

The struggles have put the Hawks in a bad spot, with the Thanksgiving holiday considered an important milestone of who will make the playoffs, the team is currently on the outside looking in. 

The team has stepped it up a bit lately, able to earn points in four of their last five games and need a good streak going. 

Corey Crawford gets the start for the Hawks, while veteran Roberto Luongo gets the start for the Panthers. 

The Hawks will have to shut down Panthers center Vincent Trocheck who sits fifth in the NHL with 22 points.
