Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Blackhawks will be looking to bounce back after their opening night loss to the St. Louis Blues tonight when they travel to Nashville.
Well, after one game at home the Chicago Blackhawks travel south to the heart of dixie or the heart of Tennessee when they head to Nashville to face the Predators.
The Predators have a new star in P.K. Subban, and the team from Nashville has been the trendy pick to make it to the Stanley Cup Final with their new star on the blue line.
The Chicago Blackhawks will be looking to bounce back after a tough end of the 2nd period/start of the third period when they face the Preds. They will get Niklas Hjalmarsson back in the lineup after he served his one game suspension so there shouldn’t be anymore Trevor van Riemsdyk who really struggled in the home opener.
Coach Q didn’t just change one player, but he shook up the lines with Artemi Panarin joining Jonathan Toews on the top line, while Tyler Motte jumps up to the 2nd line with Artem Anisimov and Patrick Kane.
Let’s be honest, this probably won’t be where the lines end up by even the end of this week, but you had to know Coach Q will be tinkering his lines every game until the Chicago Blackhawks prospects find their groove.
The Hawks hit the road for the first time this season, and they will be looking not to start the season 0-2-0!
