I'd love to sit here and wax poetic about game 81 of the 82-game regular season schedule for the Hawks. But I've got nothing. Anaheim is still fighting with Edmonton for the top spot in the Pacific Division, so I'd expect them to have a little more bounce in their step tonight than the Hawks. But it'd still be hilarious to see the Hawks beat the Ducks in a game the Ducks should win. Again.

LET'S GO HAWKS!!

The difference between a series with Calgary or the Sharks/Anaheim seems large to me. Assuming they don't view their size/brute advantage larger against an Edmonton, coaches and players and management should all be pushing for a win here heading into playoffs.

I wouldn't pick agains the Hawks even in cruise control however. 2 points would pass Pittsburgh (its a damn shame we folded 30 minutes early on the season against the avs)

Lots of young Hawks stating their final case for a playoff look.

I see Q playing 14-15 forwards in these playoffs, and up to 9 defenseman before its over. He has a nice mix he can insert to try different things against different match-ups opponents will try on us.

Desjardins might be the right guy one night, and Hinostroza could have his role to play another. I'm just saying there is a nice flavor available for Q between

Jurco/Hino/Desjardins/Hayden/Hartman

The top 6 is set, and those guys like moving up and down and playing with different looks. But Q can put pressure with about any flavor he wants on those bottom 2 lines, keep them fresh, keep them competing with each other, and I think carry us through.

Nashville is surely the best draw we can get, then Calgary/Edmonton. Blues, Anaheim, Sharks, Wild. In my opinion of potential matchup issues, because the last 2 can score through 4 lines against us. I view everyone else as mince meat this year. Just can't wait to get our skates on their throat and show how good the 2017 version is.

Not expecting much. Hoping for no injuries but with guys like Kessler you never know.

Hoping Campbell and Seabs get a break for the next 2 games, but I'm sure they'll play in at least one of these.

Keith and Seabrook reportedly out as well. Big drama tonight will be who wears the three As.

My guess: Kane, Rozi, Kruger

Are Hammer and Oduya both sitting? I imagine one of them would warrant an A

Oduya-Forsling is set to be a D pair. Two guys who before this morning never probably saw each other on the ice. But they're both Swedish so hey that works.

So you got a swede pair a Czech pair and soup doggy tvr pair.

This is the equivalent of the Spurs resting all their starters isn't it?
