Discussion Questions

  1. Blackhawks rookie defenseman Adam Boqvist is making his NHL debut tonight. Chances he gets his first goal?
  2. Both the Kings and Blackhawks allowed an absurd number of shots in their last game — the Kings allowed 49 shots from the Canucks while the Blackhawks allowed 51 from the Predators. Are we in for a wild game tonight?
  3. Is tonight the night that Blake Lizotte finally gets his first NHL goal?
