Blackhawks Show No Sympathy For The Devils

The Hawks were pleased to meet Keith Kinkaid, making his first NHL start in net for New Jersey. In spite of his fantastic performance over 65 minutes, he didn’t need to guess the names of the two Chicago snipers to beat him in the shootout.

Blackhawks Send Jeremy Morin To Rockford

Patrick Sharp Coming Back

On Monday, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville indicated that forward Patrick Sharp will likely return from injury on Tuesday evening. Also, goaltender Scott Darling will get the call between the pipes against the Devils.

If Sharp returns to the lineup, the Blackhawks will need to make a roster move. The most likely short-term answer is Joakim Nordstrom going back to Rockford, but reports that Jeremy Morin wants ice time or a trade may lead to his departure soon.

At practice on Monday, Morin and Nordstrom were absent from line rushes. The lines were:

Saad-Toews-Hossa
Versteeg-Richards-Kane
Sharp-Shaw-Bickell
Carcillo-Kruger-Smith
