Blackhawks vs Stars – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

Welcome back to Chicago, Max Domi! This game certainly sets up to be a little more “normal” than the last time Dallas was in town, when the rumors started flying and Domi was a late scratch — on his birthday — to be traded to the team that was in town that night. Now, he’s just a Dallas Stars forward trying to win a division crown. We’ll see if the United Center gives him a warm reception, because there are a lot of us that wouldn’t mind him running it back here next year.

Injury Report

Chicago Blackhawks

  • The Blackhawks continue to be without Jonathan Toews, Jarred Tinordi and Austin Wagner. Cole Guttman, Colin Blackwell and Philipp Kurashev‘s seasons are over.

Dallas Stars

  • Nobody on IR.

What to Watch For

  • What does Domi have in store for his former teammates?
  • With the possibility that Jujhar Khaira can’t go tonight because of illness, an even bigger share of faceoffs are going to fall on Jason Dickinson. That’s not an easy test against a heavy Stars lineup.
  • Dallas is playing for a division title. The Blackhawks are… not. Both teams have the same outcome preferred. Will it play out that way?
  • Shoutout to Tom and Maggie, who got married on the ice a couple hours before puck drop!
