That almost felt unfair going three days with the Chicago Blackhawks after just a pair of games to open the season, but the team is back in action Wednesday night as the Calgary Flames come to town. It's a matchup that pretty clearly favors the home team, as the Blackhawks are also more rested -- Calgary played Nashville on Tuesday night. We'll have more on the game later, but for now, onto the news!
