BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Viktor Tikhonov will play in his first NHL game since the 2008-09 season and Corey Crawford gets the start when the Blackhawks face the New York Islanders Friday night.
Viktor Svedberg’s size is the first thing you notice when he’s on the ice. When you’re 6-foot-9, you’re easy to find.
The open place in the rafters, the one that’s sitting there among several Stanley Cup banners, was easy to spot. Blackhawks players saw it, for sure.
Antti Raanta hadn’t even gotten to the visiting locker room at the United Center when Blackhawks vice president Al MacIsaac pulled him aside.
