One of the Eastern Conference’s top teams makes its way to the United Center on Sunday night. The Chicago Blackhawks are in the middle of one of their busiest stretches of the season, playing their third game in four nights as part of an 11-day, 7-game stretch. On Sunday night, it’s the Tampa Bay Lightning skating into the United Center. Tampa is in the early stages of a five-game road trip and is coming off a 5-4 loss in overtime to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

What are the Blackhawks doing with Anton Forsberg?

Chicago hasn’t used its other goalie once this season. As of Monday morning, there are six teams in the NHL that have used just one goalie this season. The Tampa Bay Lightning have only played three games and used 2018 Vezina Trophy finalist Andrei Vasilevskiy each time.
