Marian Hossa and Brad Richards were resting on Monday but both were expected to play on Tuesday night when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Blackhawks didn’t want to repeat the “sins,” so to speak, of Friday night’s game.
The Blackhawks’ once sizeable lead was whittled to one early in the second period, and a bit of apprehensiveness settled into the United Center.
For the first 35 minutes of Friday’s game the Blackhawks were playing exactly how they wanted.
TORONTO — It’s unusual to see the Blackhawks with more losses than victories in a multi-game span. At least it’s unusual the past few seasons.
