Last year, the Blackhawks were kind of so-so...but they owned the Avs. This year, the Blackhawks are better than so-so. And yep, they still have our number. We've beaten the Hawks just once in the last two seasons (1-4-1) and have been outscored 22-16. Uh-oh.
Ian Laperriere is still out. I haven't read anything about Ben Guite's status. Isn't it odd that we almost never hear about the status of injured 4th liners? Willsie...McCormick...Guite...is there a reason these guys don't get any media love?
For Chicago, Nickolai Khabibulin is the projected starter. For the Avs, Andrew Raycroft will get his 2nd straight start after beating Nashville on Tuesday. Normally, I'd be a bit down about that, but I found out today that I'll be attending the Super Bowl. And, I saved a bundle on my car insurance.
