CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Chicago Blackhawks have put

their early-season struggles behind them.

Riding a five-game winning streak, the Blackhawks hope to

continue their success when they visit the Calgary Flames on

Friday.

Chicago is enjoying its longest run since winning six in a row

from December 26, 2001-January 6, 2002. The Blackhawks last

loss in regulation came on November 29, a 5-2 setback to the Los

Angeles Kings.

Chicago is 6-0-1 this month after closing November with a

three-game skid.

The club has also flourished under coach Joel Quenneville, who

took over for the fired Denis Savard after just four games.

Since the 1-2-1 start, Chicago has gone 15-4-6.

Calgary is looking for its third straight win following a

three-game losing streak.

The Flames are coming off a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild

on Wednesday, and defeated the St. Louis Blues, 6-3, one night

earlier.

The Flames are 10-1-0 when captain Jarome Iginla has more than

one point.
