The Chicago Blackhawks face the Toronto Maple Leafs for the first time this season on Saturday night in a marquee Original Six matchup. It's going to be on NHL Network, and will give the team a chance to build momentum on its 5-4 win over Ottawa. Before that game, the team had scored six goals in its previous four contests combined. The game is also notable for the return of Corey Crawford, who is slated to start in goal after missing the past few games due to injury.

So here's your first game thread of the night, let's hope we get another winner.

Go 'Hawks!
