Blackhawks at Penguins – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Blackhawks

One more time. One last dance. Will this be the last time we watch two of the most impressive captains of their generation — Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby — do battle? Each has three rings at home from their respective NHL careers. And they’ve won two Olympic gold medals together. They don’t have the same rivalry as Crosby has had with Alexander Ovechkin, but don’t think for a second that these two don’t want to beat the other. And, tonight, Toews and his teammates could make a significant impact on the Penguins’ playoff streak.

Injury Report

Chicago Blackhawks

  • The Blackhawks continue to be without Taylor RaddyshCole Guttman, Colin Blackwell and Philipp Kurashev, whose seasons are over.

Pittsburgh Penguins

  • Nick Bonino and Marcus Pettersson are out.

What to Watch For

  • Jonathan Toews vs Sidney Crosby.
  • The Penguins now control their own destiny. If they can win the rest of their games, they’re in the playoffs. The Blackhawks need some help — ironically, from the Penguins against Columbus — to land the top odds in the draft lottery but come into Tuesday night’s action with the worst point percentage in the league.
