What To Watch For

•   This will be the second appearance for Marc-André Fleury in net for the Blackhawks . In his first action of the preseason, Fleury split time with Collin Delia, giving up two goals on 17 shots faced against the Blues on Friday. Tonight, Fleury will play the entire game behind a nearly “full-NHL” lineup for the Blackhawks.

•   Speaking of which, this is the first time the Blackhawks will ice a lineup that is made of essentially all players who will/could play with the Blackhawks this season, outside of maybe Jakub Galvas and backup goalie Arvid Söderblom.

•   Chicago seems pretty locked-in to start the season with that top line of Alex DeBrincat, Tyler Johnson, and Patrick Kane paired together. That has been the only forward line that has stuck together from day one of training camp. They are also paired together on the Blackhawks’ top powerplay unit so far through the preseason.
