CALGARY, Alberta -- John Scott didn't make it through the Blackhawks' morning skate Monday at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
The giant-sized enforcer sat on the Hawks bench drinking from his own water bottle as others prepared for the Calgary Flames.
The flu had withered his body.
Hawks enforcer John Scott had a feeling that he'd be back in the lineup against the Flyers on Sunday.
"Obviously, Philly is a pretty physical team," Scott said. "I knew I had a good chance of playing because of my physical presence."
The Flyers have a handful of tough players who agitate and fight like Dan Carcillo, who was back in the lineup with James van Riemsdyk out with a suspected groin injury.
The first time was bloody. The second time ... not so much.
The Hawks' John Scott and the Kings' Kevin Westgarth met for the second time this season Sunday. It was a solid fight by both tough guys.
No blood. No stitches. Just a few good punches. Hats off to Westgarth for wanting more after their first scrap left him a bloody mess. He held his own against Scott this time, and, judging by his response after the scrap, he was satisfied with it.
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The blue-line line is back together for the Hawks Saturday against the San Jose Sharks. Defensemen Jordan Hendry and John Scott will play wing on the fourth line with center Jake Dowell.
The Hawks only recalled Jeremy Morin from the Rockford IceHogs. Morin flew in Friday night as the Hawks continue to shuffle him back and forth to limit his cap hit.
