This is a game that used to mean more than a badly needed two points for the Blackhawks. But with the Wings now a bottom-deeding team in the Eastern Conference, not quite s much. Still, with the likes of Justin Abdelkader and Niklas Kronwall on the ice, there’s sure to be some lingering bad blood. And, the Wings have enough firepower upfront to present the Hawks with some problems.
