Morning Bag Skate: The end of the preseason is here

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The final day of the Chicago Blackhawks preseason has arrived, putting us just days away from the first real puck drop of the season. Coming off a rather disappointing loss to Montreal on Wednesday, the Hawks look to rebound at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers. We're expecting Teuvo Teravainen to play, and at this point, that's really all I care about before the regular season begins. Here's your news to start off the day.
