Pure craziness at the office, so here's the abridged Game Day. Play nicely. We'll attempt a Field Trip with Second City Hockey for tonight's game.

I'm currently getting my ears talked off in a most brutal way. But hey...beats washing cars. For now.

Question: Anyone going to listen to the game via radio this evening? Looking for someone to pass along newly-minted celebrity Randy Moller's goal calls.

A fan-favorite in Washington, Huet will be backed up by Antti Niemi (?) due to Nik Khabibulin hitting the IR.

The Box is guessing Coach Pete sticks with T-Vo (why switch?), but consideration could be given to former Blackhawk Craig Anderson. Ya know, the old "beat up on your previous club" nugget.
