(There’s no real reason for this video – though this could be a good metaphor for the rest of the season for the Blackhawks.)

Dallas was probably the surprise team out of the West this year — quickly moving up to the top of the Pacific Division and the conference. But after the bloodbath that was the game versus the Bruins (four fights in the first minute and a half!), they’ve slid into a three-game funk. Hopefully, the Blackhawks can take advantage of this tonight.

Not only do we get to watch Marty Turco take on his old team in Dallas, we also get to watch the debut of the newest Blackhawk, Michael Frolik. Make us proud, guys.
