During the Blackhawks’ morning skate broadcast on Friday, coach Joel Quenneville indicated the team would be without a number of key players for tonight’s game against Carolina.
Patrick Kane’s regular season is done, which we already knew. Quenneville also indicated that defenseman Michal Rozsival will miss a few more games. Brandon Saad won’t play against the Canes as he continues to recover from an upper-body injury, and Bryan Bickell is also out of the lineup with an injury.
Jeremy Morin will play tonight, but Teuvo Teräväinen will not. The Hawks expect newly-signed forward Matt Carey to join the team later on Friday.
