Scouting the Opponent & Miscellaneous Musings

The injury bug tried bite at morning skate with an errant puck getting Seth Jones up high–but he was cleared per head coach Luke Richardson. Arvid Soderblom gets the nod tonight. The Blackhawks try to get another home win as they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to the United Center.

The Flyers still sit third in the division, holding onto a playoff spot in the ultra competitive Eastern Conference and Metropolitan Division. So there’s something for them to play for as well, trying to decide as the trade deadline nears if they are going to be buyers or sellers.

The Blackhawks meanwhile have scored a combined seven goals in their last three games after struggling to find the back of the net in 14 games. They’d tally 20, but saw eight games where they scored one or fewer goals. Soderblom hasn’t been in net for a win since November 24.

It’s been an expected boost having Bedard back–and he’s been even better than initially thought. So does it continue tonight? Can the Hawks notch their second win in their last three, after having an eight-game slide before they knocked off Ottawa on Saturday night?
