Dustin Byfuglien, Evander Kane and the Winnipeg Jets are in town Sunday night for a matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks. It's a favorable matchup for the 'Hawks against a below-average opponent, although the Jets have posed strong possession numbers early this season while running into the same ugly shooting percentages that have plagued Joel Quenneville's team. One hopes that facing Jets backup Michael Hutchinson, who has allowed three goals on 22 shots already this season, should make this an especially good opportunity. Ondrej Pavelec, the usual starter, gets the night off, and has actually been pretty solid this season.

So here's your first game thread for this absurdly late Sunday game, let's hope we at least get a win for being sleepy on Monday morning.

Go 'Hawks!
