When a player or coach doesn’t really show up during a Blackhawks game, they get put on the Milk Carton. As most of you know, people’s pictures used to be put at the back of milk cartons when they went missing. So the Milk Carton for the Blackhawks is more about who went missing or played terribly during the game.

Stat Line



+/- -1

Penalty Minutes-4

Blocked Shots-2


Time On Ice- 13:27

Summary- Before he was scratched for Sheldon Brookbank prior to the Buffalo Sabres game Saturday night, you had to like the fact that Michal Rozsival was upset about not playing in more games.  Rozsival made it known for the fact he chose to stay with the Blackhawks for a chance to win another Stanley Cup.

All of those statements were great and then Tuesday night happened. Rozsival took a penalty in the 2nd period after getting checked hard and he retaliated and put the Hawks down a man. Although the Hawks were able to kill off the man advantage, #32 night would get worse when Ron Hainsey shot from the point went through him and Crawford to tie up the contest.

With the game in doubt late in the third period, Rozsival slashed Jeff Skinner to again put the Hawks down a man when a road point or two were not certain.  Yes the Hawks killed off another Rozsival penalty, and in the end Corey Crawford saved the day in the shootout, but this wasn’t Rozsival’s best effort and probably one of his worst outings since signing with the Blackhawks before the shortened 2013 season.

More than likely with the Hawks carrying 8 defenseman #32 will be one of the 3 scratches when the Hawks get ready to take the ice for the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

What do you think? Who do you think should have been on last nights milk carton?
