Blackhawks game day
Blackhawks vs. Edmonton Oilers at the United Center, 6:30 p.m.
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Radio: WGN-AM 720
The skinny: The Oilers (4-12-2) are last in the Western Conference and coming off a 4-2 loss at Philadelphia on Saturday. The Oilers traded defenseman Ladislav Smid to Calgary on Friday for two draft picks and signed free agent goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, who was assigned to Oklahoma City of the AHL. Goaltending has been a sore spot for Edmonton. The Hawks are still without center Michal Handzus (lower body) and forward Brad Mills (lower body).
Next: Phoenix Coyotes at the United Center, 7 p.m. Thursday.
