Three new lines for Blackhawks


Three new lines for Blackhawks

The Blackhawks dominated the first 10 minutes, with several prime scoring opportunities but Mike Smith has withstood the barrage of 13 shots (2 for the Coyotes) and a Hawks power play.

Joel Quenneville was rolling four lines with offensive threats on each - and each was a factor: Brendan Morrison-Jonathan Toews-Viktor Stalberg to start, followed by Patrick Sharp-Marcus Kruger-Jimmy Hayes. Then came Bryan Bickell-Dave Bolland-Michael Frolik, and finally Andrew Brunette-Patrick Kane-Andrew Shaw.

We're awaiting word on whether Coyotes defenseman Rostislav Klesla will return after Morrison's skate appeared to inadvertently come in contact with his face. He left the ice under his own power, with a towel to the face.

Blackhawks domination early, but no score.

Road Ahead: White Sox face another struggling offense in the Royals

The White Sox have scored the second fewest runs in the American League while the Royals have scored the fewest.

So fans of offense may not find the three-game series between the White Sox and Royals at Guaranteed Rate Field. The Sox have scored 55 runs in 17 games while the Royals have 46 runs in 18 games.

Dan Hayes and Siera Santos talk about what to expect from that series and give updates on Carlos Rodon's injury and timeline for his return and talk about when Yoan Moncada may get promoted from the minors.

Watch the video above to see those topics in the Honda Road Ahead.

Scouting Report:

"Physical, battering-ram style runner who makes the hitting a two-way affair. Conner's lack of speed and reactive quickness could limit his role as a pro, but his heart, work ethic and ability to keep the chains moving could make him a red-zone specialist with the ability to handle some third down duties as well." — Lance Zierlein,
