Decision Time For Joel Quennevile....Start Antti Niemi

Ten games in 18 days.

Ten games to determine not only seeding in the playoffs for our Chicago Blackhawks, but also ten games to get some sort of momentum headed into the greatest playoffs in sport. Ten games to determine finally who indeed is going to lead this club in net and possibly be the famed "hot goaltender" of the playoffs. You would figure with his recent play that indeed Antti Niemi would be the "guy" moving forward because of his 7-2-2 record over his last 11 starts. You would figure that Antti Niemi would be the guy after getting the famed championship belt after shutting out the red hot Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.

Then why is head coach Joel Quenneville starting Cristobal Huet on Thursday in Columbus?
