The Chicago Blackhawks are in Nashville tonight and the team has announced some gameday roster decsisions for tonight’s fight for first place in against the Predators tonight.  Scott Darling will be in net tonight after Antti Raanta has made two good starts and picked up 2 wins for the Blackhawks in net for the injured Corey Crawford.

Darling’s totals for the season are in Chicago, 2-1 with a 1.98 Goals Against Average and a .933 Save Percentage. In Rockford Darling has been 8-2 with a 2.09 Goals Against Average and a .929 Save Percentage.

The other big news is that Klas Dahlbeck is making his NHL debut for the Blackhawks.  Dahlbeck is a stay at home big defenseman who many think can be the final piece of the puzzle for the Blackhawks third pairing and settle down that spot for the Blackhawks.

Dahlbeck in Rockford had played in 22 games with 2 goals 4 assists and a +7 rating.

Dahlbeck is the second Rockford Ice Hog to make his debut on the third pairing with Adam Clendening getting a quick shot. Clendening is an offensive minded defenseman with Dahlbeck the total opposite.  It will be interesting to see which direction in the end the Blackhawks go in.

Should be a very interesting night in Nashville, What are you excited to see the most tonight?
