    Wow! He must have one hell of a hangover.

    Seriously, though, this seems really ominous. A young, well-conditioned professional athlete, becoming so “ill” he is placed on IR, can’t be good.

    I wish him the very best and hope he recovers quickly.

    OMG JG! I was just going to say that is one helluva hangover celebrating MAF’s 500th win. Now, that is a good teammate! Just some hot whiskey, and he’ll fine!

    Hope he gets back soon and nothing serious.

    He was just starting to contribute, offensively. I hope it’s nothing serious. Get well soon, HB.
    The submitted lineups for tonight’s game are curious indeed.

    Alex DeBrincat — Dylan Strome — Patrick Kane
    Brandon Hagel — Jonathan Toews — Brett Connolly
    Dominik Kubalik — Kirby Dach — Philipp Kurashev
    MacKenzie Entwistle — Josiah Slavin — Ryan Carpenter

    Calvin de Haan — Seth Jones
    Caleb Jones — Connor Murphy
    Riley Stillman — Jake McCabe
    Marc-Andre Fleury
    Kevin Lankinen

    Scratched: Kurtis Gabriel, Erik Gustafsson

    Strome is centering the 1st line. He has always had chemistry with DeBrincat. He is, in my opinion, a stronger assist guy than a scorer. Toews is with the returned Connolly. Connolly was doing well, in Rockford. Hopefully, he brings some needed scoring punch. The surprise, not really, is Dach on the 3rd line. Is this a Coach King message or is it taking some of the pressure off of Dach and letting his game develop? Kubalik is his LW and a shooter. Kurashev? Not sure if he wants to be a shooter or a finesse guy. On the 3rd line? Shoot the puck, kid. Although, he can also pass. This might light a fire under Dach to also…SHOOT THE PUCK!!!

    Defensive pairings are a bit of a shock. Gustafsson is a healthy scratch. That takes an offensive defenseman out of the line-up, but C. Jones needs some playing time. Your blueline offense is S.Jones, C. Murphy, and then…well…if Stillman and McCabe can shoot the puck…that’s a plus.

    MAF gets the net. He’ll be well rested after his 500th win. Let’s hope he gets 501 tonight.
