NASHVILLE — Well, it’s come down to this: Game 82, the regular-season finale for the Chicago Blackhawks, who will be heading to the postseason next week.
Duncan Keith has logged the most minutes out of any Blackhawks player this season, and took advantage of a much-needed day off against the Washington Capitals on Friday night.
A few minutes had barely passed since Patrick Sharp potted the game-winning goal in overtime, his 34th of this season.
The Blackhawks are hosting the Montreal Canadiens tonight in their regular-season home finale.
Jeremy Morin and Joakim Nordstrom were called up to Chicago to fill voids.
