Blackhawks vs. Boston Bruins at TD Bank Center, 6 p.m. Thursday
TV: Comcast SportsNet / NHL
Radio: WGN 720-AM
The skinny: The Blackhawks are heading into Boston at a dangerous time because the Bruins are red-hot. Before a 2-1 shootout loss Monday, Boston had won 12 straight. Couple that with the memory of the last time the Blackhawks came to town, they left with the ultimate hardware … and the Hawks figure to have their hands full on the first of back-to-back road games. Coach Joel Quenneville hinted he might split up the goaltending duties between Corey Crawford and Antti Raanta Thursday and Friday.
