Patrick Kane is back home and it’s a nationally televised game and guess what the only downer of this whole situation is, the competition is the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres made a strange move at the beginning of the season by naming two captains, and low and behold by the trade deadline both of those players are gone and so is All-world Goalie Ryan Miller. The Sabres have the worst record in all of the NHL and now the defending Stanley Cup Champs make a rare visit to Buffalo. This is a game just like Thursday night that the Hawks need to make this game a quick business like trip and get a lead early and suffocate the Sabres. Game time is approaching so here is the viewing details.

Tonight’s Prediction- As much as I want to predict a homecoming hat trick for Patrick Kane on his return to Buffalo, there is something else that happened today that has been a bigger predictor than a homecoming. This season the Blackhawks that have played on their birthday have had great games so since Bryan Bickell’s birthday is today I’m going with Bickell scoring twice and Kaner will get one too in a Hawks 6-2 win.
