As usual, there will be more than a few Chicago Blackhawks jerseys in the crowd as they face the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. There’s extra motivation for Sabres fans to don Patrick Kane sweaters, however, as he plays in his hometown.

The game airs on NBCSN while the live stream link is available below.


Chicago hopes to distance itself from the Colorado Avalanche, as they have one more point with the same 18 games remaining, yet the Avalanche carry the wins tiebreaker (41-37) at the moment. There’s not much at stake for the Sabres aside from pride and some talent evaluation, particularly with a slew of players injured. The Sabres face a team that might lay out something of a rebuilding blueprint for Buffalo as they face the ‘Hawks tonight.

    No one wants to watch Buffalo on National TV. Stop putting them on

    What a garbage call on the disallowed goal.

      Hit a guy in the hands, it’s a slash. The rules are pretty clear on that. It may not have been a powerful chop, but it was forceful. I was annoyed at the commentators comment: “I guess any hit to the hand is going to get called.” Well, yes. Rule 61 is in the book.

    People may not want to see Buffalo, but the “life long” Hawk fans do. Hence why Chicago gets tons of national games. Basically the NHL is riding the success the Hawks have had and they know they are the most “popular” team in the league. They want viewers and they get them, even in games like this.

    I get annoyed by nbc commentators in general. They are absolutely terrible. That was a pretty soft call though. No reason Crawford should be that far out playing the puck in the first place. He got lucky that they called the goal off.
