Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks at Red Wings (6:30 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks head to Detroit for what should be a heated rivalry game. But with so many new faces in the lineup for Chicago, how will this game feel? Detroit, meanwhile, chose to sell at the deadline and have been struggling since. In fact, Blackhawks fans might recognize as many names in the Red Wings’ lineup as they do in the Blackhawks’ tonight.

What to Watch For

  • Will the Blackhawks offense stay hot after putting five goals on Ottawa? Will Seth Jones continue his scoring streak (four goals in his last three games)?
  • Ian Mitchell will draw back into the lineup tonight after watching a series of games. Will he get back on the second power play unit?
  • The Red Wings have lost six straight. Will they end that streak on home ice tonight?
