Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks at Senators (6:00 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks head into Ottawa for a Friday night tilt against Alex DeBrincat and the Senators. Will Ryan Reynolds be there? At least we can see how Deadpool feels about the Blackhawks as they face their former leading scorer. Keep in mind: this might be the only time DeBrincat faces Patrick Kane while 88 is with the Blackhawks, so this could be an interesting night of hockey.

What to Watch For

  • What does DeBrincat have in store for the Blackhawks tonight? And what about Blackhawks legend Tyler Motte?
  • Stützle has six points (two goals, four assists) and Tkachuk has five points (two goals, three assists) in three games in February. Their top line is a beast.
  • With so many people talking about Pat Brisson’s other client of note in this game, Giroux, and the similarities between him leaving Philly last year and what might come for Kane, we’ll see if there’s any pregame conversation between the two.
