It's just meaningless, preseason hockey. The Blues and Blackhawks are each icing quality players tonight, with the Hawks' top forwards squaring off against Jake Allen and a line-up that has just as much grit as it does skill.
Welcome to the first GDT of the year that you may actually be able to participate in, if you turn your radios to Y98. Heck, maybe you're watching live if you live within WGN's broadcast area.
