Blackhawks hockey makes its gracious return after two days off as the Canadiens visit the United Center on Wednesday night for a preseason tilt. Montreal is pretty much icing a "B" team besides goaltender Carey Price, but it should still be a fun game to watch. It's also on CSN instead of CSN+, so hopefully they're using the big boy cameras and I can put my TV to good use finally.

There's not going to be any Teuvo Teravainen tonight, unfortunately, but he'll reportedly be back back in a couple days for the preseason finale. Until then, the Hawks have Antti Raanta in goal tonight, and let's hope he can show some form and give us just a little bit more confidence in the situation between the pipes. For more on the game, check out the game preview.

So here's your place to discuss the action, let's crack open a cold one and hope the team can improve its preseason record to 3-2. Go Hawks.
