Cisco NHL Live sets up Blackhawks-Avs battle

by Matt Sitkoff

The Blackhawks' historic run to start the season survived yet another day after beating the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. Less than 24 hours later, Chicago welcomes the only team they have yet to face in the Western Conference, the Colorado Avalanche. Steve Mears and EJ Hradek will get you set for that matchup on Wednesday's edition of Cisco NHL Live at 5 p.m. ET on the NHL Network.

NBC Sports Insider Pierre McGuire will be standing by via our Cisco NHL Arena Cam as he prepares for the game.

We'll fill you in on the latest status of Rangers defenseman Marc Staal and we'll weigh in on the visor debate. Find out how the League and players feel in light of the latest injury.

Plus, the trade deadline is less than a month away and it's never too early to talk rumors. NHL Network Insider Darren Dreger will give us the scoop on who might be sporting a different uniform by end of the March.

As always, send us your #AskEJ questions through Twitter and they might be answered on air! And remember, EJ will also pick the winner's for all of tonight's games.
