-Niemi will start in the net. Burish and Boynton will be out again tonight. Also, Boynton face is pretty bad so he wore a cage at practice today.

Coach Q from Morning Skate:

-Don't forget the Hawks will be fist pumping in New Jersey tonight at 6:00 p.m. on CSN.

-Toews was asked about that god awful mural today:

Toews: "I've heard about it. Everybody seems to be talking about it."

Toews: "Everyone's talking about whether it's a good idea to have the Stanley Cup on there and everything. That's something that's outside of our locker room. We understand there's a lot of pressure in Chicago but we're not going to let a little thing like that bother us."

Toews on the pig nose: "Maybe that's a compliment. I guess it's from a picture and they must have embellished it a little bit. They're not helping me by any means."

Check out the mural for yourself here



  1. What did I miss? Why is Burish out?

    PS-Loving the blog! :)

  2. I think they're just having him sit to give other guys some playing time, like Fraser. He's not hurt or anything.

    And Thanks!!
