Can Texas continue their improbable streak this afternoon in Rockford with their seventh straight win? Jack Campbell will be key to the chances of that as Texas looks for his fifth straight win since returning from the ECHL.

The IceHogs have a different look since the last time these two clubs faced off. Some moves by the Blackhawks moved TJ Brennan and Klas Dahlbeck out of the lineup. That hasn't changed much for their winning ways. Since these two last played, Texas is 6-0-1 and the Hogs are 4-1-1. Depending on how the rest of the season shakes out, it is entirely possible this is a first round playoff matchup in the 4v5 match.
