Game Notes

-Both Chicago and Boston enter the game after adding players to help fuel their run to the playoffs. Chicago brought back Andrew Ladd to add a big body and some firepower alongside Jonathan Toews. Also new to the Hawks are Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann, who have been imported from the Montreal Canadiens. Meanwhile, I'm sure that everyone is familiar with the Bruins' additions. Also, Noel Acciari has been called up from Providence and will suit up in his second career NHL contest.

-Chicago enters the game on the second game of a back to back. They traveled to Detroit on Wednesday night.

-Chicago leads the Central division with 83 points, while the Bruins are third in the Atlantic with 75 points.
