Game 4 Preview: Stranglehold or Deadlock

After Game 3, the Ducks will either be one win away from a Cup Final berth or they will be tied 2-2. What We Learned From Game 3 Bruce Boudreau might be out-coaching Joel Quenneville. The Anaheim bench boss saw his team lose a marathon game by the thinnest of margins and then trusted the same lineup of players to get the job done two nights later. His Chicago counterpart elected to bench both Antoine Vermette and Teuvo Teravainen in favor of Kris Versteeg and Joakim Nordstrom, not because he thought the latter were better players, but because he though fatigue was going to be enough of a...

Kris Versteeg a necessary scratch for Blackhawks

If he truly is scratched for Game 1 against the Minnesota Wild, it's about time that Kris Versteeg found his way to the press box. At any point throughout the season, there may not have been a larger supporter of Kris Versteeg than yours truly. Throughout last summer and the cries for trading the veteran forward, I was among the few who believed that he could bring some good things to the Hawks as a versatile winger capable of contributing on special teams. And for a while, he was just that. Playing on a line with Patrick Kane and Brad Richards, Versteeg began to rediscover some of his old...
