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

Chicago Blackhawks

I’m not going to sugarcoat this one, folks. There’s a good chance tonight is the last time we see Patrick Kane on the United Center ice in a home sweater. With the NHL’s trade deadline on Friday, March 3, there’s a strong likelihood that he doesn’t play against Dallas the night before — if he’s still here by then — if he decides to waive his no-move clause. His performance on Sunday night against Toronto was worth the price of admission. What will 88 have in store for us — and Vegas — tonight?

What to Watch For

  • Patrick Kane.
  • Cole Guttman jumping onto the second line has been solid so far. He has quickly developed good chemistry with Tyler Johnson and they’ve been better every game, with Sunday night being their best thus far.
  • Will Luke Richardson saddle the Lafferty line with Jack Eichel tonight? They were really good against Auston Matthews’ line on Sunday night, so it would make sense.
