Recent years, improved road schedules favours Chicago Blackhawks in ‘Circus Trip’

Published on November 17, 2011 by   ·   No Comments

The Chicago Blackhawks annual Circus Trip begins tonight with a rematch already this season with the Vancouver Cancuks.

This is the stretch of the season when we get to speculate how badly with the Blackhawks be affected with an average of two weeks on the road. This usually equates to six games played on the far west coast. In the 2008-09 season, however, there was more crossing over to the other conference.

And that’s when the Blackhawks went 3-2-1 with a trip that sent them from Dallas to Toronto and back out west to San Jose in all of six days.

With the more accommodating road schedules to all teams, respectfully, the Blackhawks last year went 4-2 on the Circus Trip. Here’s a look at this year’s Circus Trip schedule, followed by the last previous year’s results and basic statistic breakdown:

2011-12 schedule:

Wed Nov 16, 2011 Blackhawks Canucks 9:00 PM CSN-CH Fly United to Blackhawks road games
Fri Nov 18, 2011 Blackhawks Flames 8:00 PM RIS(HD), CSN-CH Fly United to Blackhawks road games
