After extending their win streak to seven games on Sunday, the Blackhawks look to make it eight in a row tonight when they visit the Bruins. The last time the two teams played, the Bruins edged the Hawks 4-2 in the Winter Classic. Puck drop is scheduled for 6 PM central time.

Three Things

  • The Blackhawks signed goaltender Collin Delia to a three-year extension ($1M/AAV) through the 2021-22 season yesterday. He will start in net tonight.
  • With David Kampf out three to four weeks with a foot injury, the Blackhawks have recalled forward Dylan Sikura from the Rockford IceHogs. Sikura will be in the lineup tonight for Chris Kunitz, who will play in his 1,000th NHL game on Thursday night when the Blackhawks host the Devils.
  • The Bruins are 4-0-1 over their last five games, with their most recent contest resulting in an overtime victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday afternoon. Boston’s leading scorer, David Pastrnak (31 goals, 35 assists – 66 points) is out two weeks with a thumb injury so the Hawks will have to key in on Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

If you’ve ever listened to a Bruins broadcast, you know the Boston accents come out in full force. Gotta poke a little fun at that.
