(Sports Network) - The rejuvenated Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third consecutive victory when the Detroit Red Wings invade the United Center tonight for a matchup between Central Division rivals.

Since Denis Savard replaced Trent Yawney as head coach on November 27, the Blackhawks have gone 5-0-3 to pull to .500 for the season.

Chicago maintained its strong recent form on Tuesday, earning a 3-2 victory at St. Louis in Andy Murray's first game as the Blues' head coach.

Radim Vrbata had a goal and an assist while recently-signed Peter Bondra lit the lamp in his Blackhawks' debut. Chicago scored all three of its goals within a span of 2:04 in the third period.

Bondra, who joined the Blackhawks on Sunday, netted the 499th goal of his outstanding career. The 38-year-old can become the 37th player in league history to reach the 500-goal milestone and the first to do it in a Chicago uniform since Michel Goulet.

The Blackhawks, who play four of their next five at home, are 7-5-1 at the United Center for the year.
