Posted by Fox Sports on Tuesday, February 16, 2020 00:00:10The NHL 12 season is officially underway and the games are in full swing.
The games will begin on Saturday night in Chicago, and we’ll have a full recap here as we get closer to the NHL playoffs.
But what are some of the key storylines for tonight’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets?
Let’s start with the Blackhawks’ goal scorers, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.
Both scored a goal tonight in Chicago and will be looking to bounce back from last night’s embarrassing loss.
Kane will look to take a step forward in the playoffs after going through a tough first round series.
He and Toews both got the start tonight and finished the game with three goals each.
This could be a good opportunity for Kane to make some big plays.
Toews is the face of the Blackhawks and is expected to be the starter this time.
He’s playing well after missing the first two games due to a knee injury and is averaging 24 minutes of ice time per game this season.
It will be interesting to see how the team responds to Toews going through this.
The Blackhawks have been an absolute nightmare for teams with goal scoring this season, and they should be able to bounce right back this time around.
The Blue Jackets should be much better, however, and the Blackhawks should be on their heels.
