Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks vs Coyotes (7:30 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

The Arizona Coyotes are 6-20-4 on the road this season and have lost their last 16 road games. Their last road win? Nov. 23 in Carolina, of course. So if there’s a team that loves losing away from home, it’s the Coyotes. But Arizona is just five points back of the Blackhawks in the Battle for Bedard so, like Tuesday, we’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out.

What to Watch For

  • Jason Dickinson has scored a goal in three straight games and has been playing well since he jumped up to the top line with Patrick Kane.
  • Jaxson Stauber gets another game in net; Petr Mrazek will get the start in Winnipeg on Saturday night.
  • Will this be a Nick Schmaltz revenge game? Or will Connor Murphy haunt his former employer?
