Minnesota Wild @ Chicago Blackhawks: Game preview

Jonathan Daniel

A short and sweet look at tonight's game

Who's ready for a Saturday evening game Wilderness? Let's buckle up and get ready for what should be a very good game tonight.

The Wild play the defending Stanley Cup Champions Chicago Blackhawks tonight at the United Center in Chicago. This will be a very big test for the team, especially with Jonas Brodin, Charlie Coyle, Keith Ballard and Josh Harding all out.

The Blackhawks certainly aren't off to the same start they had last season, but they are still looking to be a very strong team. Look for Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews to lead the Hawks in this game, along with the rest of their star-studded roster.

This is a home and home series, meaning that that tonight the two teams play in Chicago and Monday night they play in St. Paul. The cool thing about Monday's game is that the team has decided to show off their new road jerseys to the home crowd team, and will be wearing them that night instead of the red or green jerseys.

Tonight is Jason Pominville's 600th game, so look for him to makes some noise. It will be interesting to see if the Wild can continue to dominate puck possession against a team that has been one of the best, if not the best, puck possession teams in the last few years.

Pay close attention to the third period tonight. The Hawks have struggled tremendously in the 3rd this season, and this could be one of the areas that they Wild could exploit tonight to get a win out.

See you at 7 Wilderness!
