Well, let’s get to it, eh?
I don’t really have a lot to say about this game. I’m glad that half-and-half circus trip is over with and the Blackhawks are back home and hopefully ready to play hard and bring it against the Coyotes tonight.
Both clubs are coming off wins and neither are looking to lose. I think it’ll be a good game and I’m definitely looking forward to hearing Chelsea Dagger again after the clowns and elephants took over the UC for the past two weeks. I’m hoping this homecoming will be a good one for the Hawks.
Chicago won against Los Angeles 2-1 on Saturday.
Phoenix won against Dallas 3-0 on Saturday.
CHI: Defenseman Brent Seabrook and Forward Dave Bolland took Monday off for maintenance but are expected to play. So, weee!! No injuries!! (nhl.com)
PHX: Defenseman Michal Rozsival (upper body) is still on injured reserve. (nhl.com)
Joel Quenneville, CHI: “It’s a dangerous game. The trend and history is definitely accurate. It’s tough and challenging and we want to make sure that we simplify the approach and make it like a road game.”
Mike Smith, Goalie PHX,: “It just shows what kind of guys we have in this locker room. Nobody likes to lose, but even to lose two in a row…nobody likes to get into those little slides. You need to stop them as quick as you can and we’ve done a good job of it so far.”
