Tonight is the final dress rehearsal before it starts for real on Tuesday night. With the rosters trimmed down quite a bit, tonight's game will feature most of the Blackhawks' regulars with a couple of exceptions. Michal Handzus and Marian Hossa will both sit tonight despite both skating with the team this morning. Corey Crawford who was expected to start, will be sidelined with "stiffness in his lower body." <insert boner joke here> Antti Raanta has been recalled from Rockford and will back up Nikolai Khabibulin. You can check out both team's complete rosters from the Blackhawks' official website.
In case you were wondering, here's what the lines might look like tonight.
Lines for tonight (I assume): 29-19-88, 10-16-28, 20-65-22, 52-37-42. #Blackhawks— Tracey Myers (@TramyersCSN) September 28, 2013
