Keeping this one quick.

The Blackhawks lead the Predators in the Central Division by 2 points heading into tonight’s matchup. Nashville is damn good this season and they won’t be giving the Hawks anything easy.

Via the Blackhawks official Twitter account, Michal Rozsival will not return to the lineup tonight because of a lower-body injury. He missed Saturday night’s contest at Colorado, leaving Runblad and Erixon to man the third defensive pairing. Their minutes were limited against weaker competition, so expect those two to play under 10 minutes each tonight. Yes, you read that correctly – Coach Q hates his third pair.

Brad Richards should be good to go, and Corey Crawford will start in net. Puck drops at 7:30 for what should be a highly-skilled, competitive game. LET’S GO HAWKS!
