Are the Blackhawks hitting the panic button?

You've been extra good today, so I've got a second helping of links to get you ready for Game Four down at Bridgestone Arena tonight.

REMINDER: It's a 7:30 p.m. start, and if you're watching on TV in the Nashville area, tune to Fox Sports TN (not Versus!) to catch the game. It should be on Comcast 28/183(HD), DirecTV Channel 644/644-1, and Dish Network 450/9519.

But really, you should get your butt downtown and join the rest of us crazies. Would you rather sit around and watch 300-pound guys in suits walk up to a podium and shake hands, compared to this, from reader NashCub?

Mark is rallying the Predators faithful for a big effort tonight... will you be there, and will you be heard?

I don't know which is more surprising - a David Climer column on the Preds, or that he threw in a reference to the t-shirts I'm pushing!

Looking as if Campbell playing - DailyHerald.com Blogs
Chicago defenseman Brian Campbell has been upgraded to a "game-time decision". He's still about 10 days from original projections for his return from suffering a broken collarbone. To me, the loss of Campbell has meant double-trouble for the Blackhawks - obviously they miss his jump from the back end, but having Dustin Byfuglien take his spot removes the big lug as a crease-crashing presence up front.

Burish, Bickell look to add energy to Hawks - ESPN Chicago
It's one thing for the Hawks to dress Campbell, but plugging a rookie in on the top line with Toews and Hossa? That sure smells like panic to me...

UPDATE: If, indeed, Brian Campbell plays tonight, I would guess that Byfuglien would take that spot on the Toews/Hossa line instead of Bickell.
