Lightning, Blackhawks brace for third straight clash

Rubber matches to decide three-game weekend series typically are the stuff of baseball, but with scheduling novelties aplenty during this NHL season influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning find themselves facing such a scenario.

And on a Sunday afternoon, no less.

Host Chicago arguably carries the most momentum into the matinee at United Center. After squandering a two-goal lead in the third period to lose Thursday's series opener in the final second of overtime, the Blackhawks responded Friday to prevail 4-3 in a shootout, with Philipp Kurashev scoring the lone goal of that session.
