Record: Lightning (5-5-2) Blackhawks (8-2-2)

Previous games: None

Game time: 7:30pm EDT on SUN (HD), NHLN-US

I've been looking forwards to this game all week. All freaking week kids. That Carolina game was like a minor bump in the road to get to here. Last year we won both of the games we played against Chicago, one by a shootout and the other with a shutout. This year we only play the Hawks once this year.

Chicago just played last night against the Panthers and won in a shootout. They are currently 2nd in the West and have played well recently. They are without Duncan Keith due to some hand injury which will be good for the Lightning.

In goal we have Roloson, which may or may not be a good thing depending on which Roloson decides to show up to the game tonight. For the sake of my hockey watching tonight instead of going out, I'm hoping we get the Roloson of last season, but who knows these days.

If you need something to do between here and the game, hop over to Lightning Strikes to find out what Brett Connolly bought with his first paycheck.

Go bolts

Line-up Notes:

  • Roloson will get the start in goal
  • Pyatt and Ritola keep playing musical chairs, Pyatt in and Ritola is out
