Game Day Preview: Everything YOU Need to Know About Tonight's Matchup (See Darryl Sutter pop into Hawks practice for his own preview!)

On paper, Calgary is the better team in, well, every aspect. Of our 3 game series this season, they're leading 2-1, having won in November, 5-2 and in January, 5-1. However, Lankinen wasn't in net for either of those games, and he will be, tonight! Cale Morris has been sent back down to Rockford, as Delia has returned from the death in his family (love and prayers to him and his family) and will be the back-up.
At practice this morning, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of changes - still no Dach, due to his right shoulder sprain - and it looks like they're keeping that Cat-Stromer-Kaner line in tact.


Fun fact, morning skate had a special visitor in the form of a Sutter brother:




The Hawks definitely need to keep a sharp eye on Elias Lindholm, as he's put up 18 points in his 16 career games vs. Chicago. Markstrom is 35-15-8 with a SV% of .923, and his back-up, 24 year old Dan Vladar, has a record of 11-5-1, with a SV% of .905.

They may sound intimidating, but let's all keep in mind that just a few days ago, the Flames were completely doused by Vegas, 6-1. If Vegas can do it, we can do it, too!
