The last time the Blackhawks played the Panthers, Florida outscored Chicago 10-5 over a two-game set. A big reason for the lopsided margin: Aleksander Barkov: The Panthers’ center scored three goals and assisted on a trio of others. Troy Murray, the color analyst for Blackhawks games on WGN Radio, joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to talk about the best way to defend Barkov, the Blackhawks’ upcoming schedule, and one of the biggest fights Troy has ever seen — which happened in the stands!
