The Blackhawks are back on the ice Tuesday night to face the Wild for the first time this season. Duncan Keith won't be playing due to an illness, which means we'll be getting David Rundblad and Tim Erixon in the lineup on separate lines. The first episode of "Road to the Winter Classic" also airs tonight on EPIX, so here's how to watch that if you're interested. Here's your first thread for the game, and we'll probably do something tomorrow for those of you who held off on the reality series.

Go 'Hawks!
