What To Watch For

•   Adam Gaudette was one of the most, if not the most, impressive players on the ice in the Blackhawks shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night, tallying two hits and six shots on goal in 15:31 of ice time. Gaudette will be back in the lineup tonight on the second line with Brett Connolly and Dylan Strome after getting the night off last night against the Blues.

•   The top-line of Philipp Kurashev, Kirby Dach, and Dominik Kubalik is one to watch (if we could, sigh) tonight. Kurashev, Dach, and Kubalik each tallied a point on Wednesday night against Detroit, with Kubalik scoring a goal and Dach and Kurashev each logging assists in the shootout loss.

•   Colton Dach, younger brother of Kirby Dach, will make his preseason debut tonight, skating on the third line with Henrik Borgstrom and Mike Hardman.
