Ferland is dealing with an unspecified issue and it is unclear if he will play against the Oilers on Sunday.
Big shakeup in Chitown with long time Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville getting pink slipped. The new guy is youtful Jeremy Colliton. He's saying all the right things in hopes of making a positive impression while also injecting life into what has been a moribund roster to date. I don't see a major turnaround as the Blackhawks are heading into a rebuild. But don't be surprised if there's a short term surger here that could result in a few wins. Carolina is playimg better hockey than their record indicates but the 'Canes goalie woes continue to be a major issue. I want to back Colliton in his debut as I expect a fired up home team to take the ice tonight. The Blackhawks are my free NHL play!
