The Blackhawks make their first return visit to the arena one of their greatest victories of all-time.  Just saying 17 seconds brings back visions of Michael Frolik and David Bolland and one crazy look from Bryan Bickell.  It’s possible that if Bickell still isn’t ready to play tonight that all three of those heroes will not be in Boston tonight.

If you don’t want to live in the past, the Bruins are playing the best hockey in the NHL right now and you know they will be extremely focused to beat the defending Stanley Cup Champions on their only visit to Boston in the regular season. The Blackhawks though fighting injuries are starting to win more consistently if you throw out the Nashville Predators game and now a real test against a red hot Bruins team tonight.

That being said this is a marquee matchup of two original 6 teams that are currently two of the best teams in the NHL that could possibly collide once again in the Finals.

Last Game’s Prediction– We had three predictions but nobody hit the 4-2 final or the goal scorers.  I also missed the Teuvo prediction with him looking good without finding the scoresheet.

Tonight’s Prediction– I have tonight’s game going to overtime where it will be anyone’s game.  Look for a Patrick Sharp goal in what I see as  a 3-2 Hawks win in OT
