It wasn’t that long ago that a Chicago Blackhawks-Detroit Red Wings had bigger implications than most games.
The Chicago Blackhawks worked on their battle drills through the second part of Saturday afternoon’s practice.
Marian Hossa has missed the game these past two weeks he’s been sidelined with an upper-body injury. The Chicago Blackhawks, in turn, have missed his game and everything he brings with it.
The shots were more plentiful, a last-ditch attempt to make amends for the lack of fire, urgency and goals they needed earlier in the game.
Marian Hossa came into the locker room after a lengthy morning skate on Friday.
