Jim Nill’s Liberator: Defending Big D
While tonight would be a premiere matchup between the conference’s top two teams jostling for inside position for the division, and both playing a high-octane brand of hockey, none of that is receiving top billing. Even Johnny Oduya’s return to the building after being a key role player on two Stanley Cup teams is a footnote.
Because tonight is Patrick Sharp’s first regular season game in the United Center as a visitor in over ten years.
