Follow @MarkLazerus and join the discussion as the Blackhawks begin their 10-day circus trip vs. the Calgary Flames.
A roster spot in Chicago is something to covet, but it’s also awfully hard to come by.
The Blackhawks will be short another key player as they open the circus trip tonight in Calgary, as Andrew Shaw is out with an upper-body injury.
The IceHogs’ winning streak ended over the weekend with losses to the Milwaukee Admirals. They’ll try to rebound with help from Stephen Johns.
“This is hopefully going to make our season if we come off this road trip [well] and carry that momentum,” Bryan Bickell said of the circus trip.
“These are kind of make-or-break trips,” Patrick Kane said of Blackhawks’ upcoming road trip.” Plus, Clendening steps in for injured van Riemsdyk.
