Hawks Sending A Message : Bickell Benched Tonight
The Blackhawks are sending a message to Bryan Bickell. He's going to watch the game in street clothes as "defenseman" Michael Kostka replaces Bickell as a forward on the 3rd line. The Blackhawks are playing the Winnipeg Jets in Chicago tonight. The Hawks are doing something that appears out of the ordinary of late….they scored first. They also had the first 8 shots on net. The Blackhawks are taking care of a tired jet-lagged Jets team who didn't arrive in Chicago until after 2 am. We shall keep an eye on how long Q wishes to bench Bickell. Too bad "The Bickell of old" has returned. What a shame.
