What could possibly be better than finally having regular season hockey back? How about Chicago Blackhawks games on consecutive nights? The Hawks head to Boston tonight to take on the Bruins in their home opener which also happens to be nationally televised starting with puck drop at 6:30pm.
Previously on Blackhawks Hockey:
The Connor Bedard era started with a 4-2 come-from-behind victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins that earned the rookie his first NHL point. Petr Mrazek dazzled with 38 saves and a sparkling .950 save percentage. Secondary scoring came up big with Cole Guttman, and Jason Dickinson getting the tying and winning goals respectively. Chicago is 1-0 on the season.
“It was awesome for myself and Kev to have that experience.”
Connor Bedard on his and fellow rookie Kevin Korchinski getting a victory, especially in a comeback fashion, on Tuesday.
Blackhawks – Bruins Look Back
Both teams split last season in what was a historic season for the Bruins, that ended in a bitter seven-game quarterfinal loss to the Florida Panthers. They lost mainstays David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron to retirement so it’s a semi-new look Bruins team that should still be competing in a very tough Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. Arvid Soderblom will be between the pipes tonight and it will be a good test for both teams as the rested and fresh Bruins host the victorious Blackhawks.
