Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks vs Stars (7:30 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread
Lukas Reichel is back with the NHL club for the final game before the trade deadline. The Blackhawks will start him on the wing with Max Domi (happy 28th birthday BTW) and Philipp Kurashev tonight. Head coach Luke Richardson said this isn’t likely going to be a long stay in the NHL for Reichel; the plan is still for him to get AHL playoff experience this spring. But the line of Reichel-Domi-Kurashev was pretty good the last time he was up.

What to Watch For
- Will Domi give us a special performance on his birthday?
- Who’s playing where? How does the chemistry work? Can the Blackhawks skate with the Stars?
- Dallas comes in clinging to first place in the Central but they’re only 4-3-3 in their last ten and, thus far, have only made one trade in the past couple weeks. They might be active today.
