Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks at Jets (9:00 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread
After two pretty strong performances to start their post-All-Star “half” of the season, things crank up a little for the Blackhawks. Effectively executing a game plan against Anaheim and Arizona is one thing. The Winnipeg Jets are another proposition (read: they don’t suck). So the test will be a lot tougher on the second night of a back-to-back with travel in the middle and a late start. Of course, when wins aren’t necessarily always the target that’s okay.
