Notes For Tomorrow's Game

They come from the same article, here.

-Sharks leading scorer and certainly MVP, and a contender for Hart Trophy -- or he should be -- Patrick Marleau will not play tomorrow to be at home for the birth of his second child.  Mrs. Marleau, take your time, no rush.

-JR will make what has to be his final regular appearance at the UC tomorrow.  I couldn't be happier.  There will be a big piece on JR in tomorrow's Indian.  Simply, he's my favorite Chicago athlete of all time, and one of the main reasons I'm a Hawks fan, and live the way I do.  Which is probably sad, but fuck it.

And from the Hawks official "Twitter":

-Q says Barker "could play" while Walker is definitely out.

When the Hawks faced the Sharks last time they were without Dan Boyle and now they're without another of their key pieces.  I wouldn't put the Hawks totally over their slump just yet so any edge they can get for tomorrow is much appreciated.

The Power Play really looked off without Barker on Sunday so here's hoping he's back and can add some organization to that.  We also couldn't be happier to see Walker watch another game from the press box.  We have no more use for that mole.
