TAMPA, Fla. – Bryan Bickell was out and Kris Versteeg was in as the Blackhawks prepared for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.
Jonathan Toews is one of several Blackhawks making his third Stanley Cup Final appearance. He’s played in many postseason games.
It’s the stuff that dreams are made of, at least going into the game itself.
Antoine Vermette and Teuvo Teravainen will be back in the lineup, as expected, when the Blackhawks host the Anaheim Ducks in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals tonight.
