After being a healthy scratch the first few games of the season, Dylan Strome got back into the Chicago Blackhawks lineup last night. Head coach Jeremy Colliton said after the game that Strome worked hard, but the young forward still found himself skating lower and lower in the lineup throughout the game. He ended up playing 13:12, ninth among Chicago forwards in another loss. The Blackhawks have not held a lead through any of their first five games and have been outscored 21-9 so far.

The Jays haven’t made much news of late. This is always the worst time for news after the season ends and before the playoffs end. I did have my favourite phone call of the year just the other day. Every year for the past several, I talk to someone from Strat-O-Matic baseball, giving opinions on the Jays’ players’ defense and arms and all. Since I spent many many hours playing Strat-O-Matic (sitting cross-legged on the floor, if I tried sitting like that now, I’d never get up), I always think how thrilled 13-year-old me would be if he knew I helped rate the players. I still play the game every now and then. But not for hours on end like I used to and at a table, not on the floor.

The night started on a high for the Ottawa Senators. Brady Tkachuk took the ice for the first time since signing a seven-year, $57.5 million contract and Matt Murray was making his season debut. Murray looked great and it didn’t take long for Tkachuk to get on the scoresheet, too. He and Artem Zub assisted on Drake Batherson’s first goal of the season that came just 10 minutes into the game.
