Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks at Stars (8:30 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

After scoring two goals against Ottawa, a hat trick on Sunday against Toronto and last night’s should-have-been heroics, what the hell does Patrick Kane have in store for us tonight? And, with Dallas being one of the teams that’s reportedly been after him since June, how will he be received by the fans in Big D tonight? This sets up as a fascinating game on so many levels…

Injury Report

Chicago Blackhawks

Jonathan Toews, Jarred Tinordi, Alex Stalock, MacKenzie Entwistle and Jujhar Khaira is on IR. Reese Johnson is in concussion protocol.

Dallas Stars

Luke Glendening, Joel Kiviranta and Scott Wedgewood are hurt (not on IR).

What to Watch For

  • Patrick Kane.
  • The Stars have three injured bodies, so they called up a backup goaltender and depth forward. If Fredrick Olofsson’s name rings a bell, he was drafted by the Blackhawks in the fourth round all the way back in 2014. He has four points in 14 games with the Stars. Dallas is going with seven defensemen and 11 forwards tonight.
  • Can Cole Guttman make it a three-game goal scoring streak?
