  • Chicago's Marian Hossa is a question mark as to whether or not he'll be in the lineup tonight.  Hossa had left the team prior to Chicago's game in Vancouver to attend to a family matter.  The Hawks also activated Michal Handzus prior to Saturday's game, but he did not play.
  • The Blackhawks have the second-worst power play in the league.  Fortunately for the Oilers, they've been having some success recently on the power play.  Let's hook these two things together and see what happens.
  • The Oilers will ice the same lineup that's brought them great fortune over the past three games.  This is mostly good, save for the fact that Mark Arcobello will be forced to play Clue in the press box by himself for a fourth straight game.
  • Devan Dubnyk is playing very well.  Over his last five starts (3-2), Dubnyk has recorded a SV% of .948.  Unsustainable?  Sure.  Fun to watch?  Yes.
  • These lines are subject to change.  Should they change, they will be updated accordingly.  There's no need for you to carry a chisel-point marker, we will make the changes for you.
