Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks host the Arizona Coyotes tonight as they jockey for a playoff spot and the Coyotes play out the string once again as they are hoping to win the NHL draft lottery.

The Chicago Blackhawks are locked into the third spot in the Central Division, but they can move up to second if the St. Louis Blues lose out and the Hawks win so the Blackhawks have no reason to be in auto-pilot mode against an opponent that’s already looking forward to the golf course.

The news is a mix match from Coach Joel Quenneville about the health of his injured Chicago Blackhawks players.  Andrew Shaw maybe back by the time the playoffs begin, and Marian Hossa is questionable for the St. Louis Blues game.  The best news is that the Hawks are shooting for Saturday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets as the return date for Corey Crawford.
