Blackhawks game day
Blackhawks vs. Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena, 6 p.m.
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Radio: WGN-AM 720
The skinny: The Hurricanes are 2-2-2 and coming off a sloppy 5-3 loss to Phoenix on Sunday. The power play was 1-for-9 in the defeat. Former Hawks No. 1 draft pick Tuomo Ruutu played his first game of the season after missing the first five with a leg injury. Cam Ward starts in goal.
Next: St. Louis Blues at the United Center, 7 p.m. Thursday.
