Meanwhile, in Chicago…

Dean Lombardi, Ron Hextall and a large portion of the hockey operations and other front-office staff is here in Toronto today, while the Kings are in Chicago preparing to face the Blackhawks. Based on the morning skate at United Center, the Kings aren’t expected to make any lineup changes, with Jonathan Quick starting in goal and Peter Harrold and Randy Jones sitting out.

Also, even though this is now one of the posted rules, it always comes up, so I’m going to politely ask for no comments regarding the “streaming” websites for games. Obviously I don’t care if you view them, and I certainly understand the frustration of not being able to see the game on TV, but those sites are still illegal and I appreciate folks not using my blog to push traffic to them. Thanks…
