Really interest read between the lines quote from Rod on Petr that may suggest Petr is more injured than though or something else. If we or the predators win the blackhawks are out of the playoffs so be prepared for them to come out desperate tonight.

The exact quote is “At some point we got to get Petr going here, at some point, to see if he’s even in the mix. You know like we gotta gotta get him some games. And so.”

Meanwhile, the Canes are 3-2 against a team that has taken a couple of huge hits this season with Jonathon Toews being out the entire season, Brent Seabrook retiring and the recent surprise retirement announcement from Andrew Shaw after one too many concussions at the age of 29. Add to the fact this team let go of some serious talent following their Stanley Cup run from the 2009/2010 season thru 2014/2015 (3 cups in 5 seasons) opting to keep some guys beyond their years.

I'll admit I was a long-time Hawks fan before I was a Canes fan and I still get a twinge when the 2 teams play. But, c'mon, another one of those teams the Canes should be dominating, but who have proven to create matchup issues. But hey, not may teams can keep track of Patrick Kane every shift.

Ned could get his 4th shutout tonite. Chicago looks terrible. 4 or 5 shots on goal?

Canes could easily put a 5-spot on the scoreboard.
