Blackhawks at Kraken – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks finish off their last multi-game road trip of the 2022-23 regular season with the always exciting 9 PM CT start on a Saturday night. Because why get a good night’s rest with Easter on Sunday? Chicago will look to continue their losing ways while the Kraken will look to continue strengthening their position in the postseason. Seattle is in the playoffs for the first time, but can they catch the Kings for third in the Pacific?

Injury Report

Chicago Blackhawks

  • The Blackhawks continue to be without Cole Guttman, Colin Blackwell and Philipp Kurashev, whose seasons are over. It now appears Taylor Raddysh‘s season is over as well.

Seattle Kraken

  • Joonas Donskoi and Andre Burakovsky are on IR.

What to Watch For

  • In their second season in the NHL, the Kraken have clinched a playoff berth. Will they take their foot off the gas now that they’re assured of a postseason spot? They’re four points back of the LA Kings with four games remaining (LA has three left).
  • The Kraken have actually been a better team on the road this season (25-10-4) than they have been at home (19-16-4).
  • The Blackhawks are 1-9-0 in their last ten, which is tied with Anaheim for the worst mark over the last 10 games entering Saturday in the NHL.
