Notes:

- The Blackhawks announced that Antti Niemi will get the start in goal.

- Patrick Kane Sign Contest: If you are going to the game, don't be afraid to make a sign poking fun at Patrick Kane. If anyone takes pics of these signs, I'll post them on the site.

- Former Bruins skating guru Paul Vincent is in his 2nd season as the Blackhawks skating coach.

- The Bruins will be without defenseman Andrew Ference for the next 6 weeks due to a groin injury.

- I would guess Tim Thomas would get the start for the B's...but who knows...

- Puck drops at 7:00 and can be seen on NESN. Public Skate open thread starts right here at 6:30.
