Both Mike Babcock and Joel Quenneville saw Brendan Smith’s hit on Ben Smith. It was only one play, yet the two coaches have two different perspectives on what went down at the United Center.

He might not get the fame and recognition of scorers such as Patrick Kane or Jonathan Toews, but Dave Bolland has proven to be a valuable player for the Blackhawks.

With Chicago down 2-0 in the series to Vancouver, they need a bit of a shake up. 6’8″ John Scott attempting to play the role of Dustin Byfuglien is at the least really interesting.

The Penguins and Blackhawks represent the last two Stanley Cup winners, even if they might not look like champions right now. That being said, both squads have plenty to play for in their only meeting of the season.
