Chicago Blackhawks v Phoenix Coyotes

Please remember to keep refreshing this page or follow me on Twitter for the fastest updates. Here are your expected starting goalies for tonight:

  • Cristobal Huet starting for the Blackhawks, via Twitter.  This game is the first of back-to-back games as the Hawks play the Red Wings tomorrow. This game is also the second of back-to-back games for the Sharks so we should get the starter closer to game time.
  • Similarly, the Avalanche played last night so there is no morning skate. Should have an update on them soon SEE BELOW.  As usual, the starter for Anaheim played close to the belt.  They, however did practice so we should see the back-t0-back schedule come to light soon enough.
  • The starters for Nashville and Vancouver will be announced following their morning skates, respectively. Pencil in Roberto Luongo, Pekka Rinne may still be recovering from the flu, will have an update on that later.

Hungry Preds Avoid Injury Bug

12/18/2009
Nashville Predators v Colorado Avalanche

So far in this season of the National Hockey League, injuries have been a plenty. Across the board every NHL team featured a substantial injury or two.

However, there has been one team able to avoid the issue of a long term injury to a key player or players.  That team is the Nashville Predators.

Aside from the team being one of the hottest teams in hockey as of late, they have been gifted by the hockey gods. Up to today, the Predators lost a total of 60 man-games due to injury or illness, one of the lowest number of man-games lost in the entire league.

The list:

Jason Arnott – Missed from October 21st to October 31st

Wade Belak – Missed from November 14th to November 19th

J.P. Dumont – Missed from October 8th to October 14th and then missed November 5th to November 10th.
