Discussion Questions

  1. If you listen to certain corners of Blackhawks fandom, fans are getting dangerously close to we-want-the-coach-fired territory. Can the Kings help nudge that along?
  2. Back to backs haven’t been good for the Kings so far this year. Do they turn the tide tonight?
  3. Is tonight the night that Blake Lizotte finally scores?
