The United Center plays gracious host to the Chicago Blackhawks' home opener against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night. For those of us not able to attend the Madhouse -- and maybe even for some of you there, somehow -- here's the place to discuss the action and hopefully celebrate an easy victory against one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. We already have a game preview and breakdown of key things to watch for, and I'm certainly excited to kick back and enjoy a beer or two with this one.
So let's have a fun night, and we'll have two more of these up -- one before the second period, one before the third. I discovered quickly during the Dallas game that one game thread would not do with you guys.
