The Chicago Blackhawks will be playing Game 7 against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

On Sunday, the Chicago Blackhawks came back from a three-game deficit to push the Vancouver Canucks to a seventh game in the playoff series. The cross-continent battle concludes on Tuesday in Vancouver.

Someone watching every move on the ice is Steve Konroyd. He spent 15 years as a defenseman in the NHL, four of them with the Blackhawks. Nowadays, he can be seen before and after games as an analyst on Comcast SportsNet and WGN. Comcast SportsNet set new all-time Blackhawks rating records for its coverage of Game 6 Sunday night and Steve’s analysis helped bookend the winning effort.

He joined Eight Forty-Eight by phone to provide some pre-game coverage.
