- The Chicago Blackhawks take on the San Jose Sharks tonight at 7:30pm at the United Center. The game will air on Comcast Sportsnet in Chicago.
- Previews: NHL, Chicago Tribune, The Committed Indian, Second City Hockey
- Ray Emery will be in net for the Blackhawks. (@TimSassone) Antti Niemi will, of course, backstop the Sharks. That Finnish bastard. (Left Wing Lock)
- Injury Report: Corey Crawford is day-to-day with an upper body injury. (Chicago Tribune) Speculation is that he sustained the injury when Brent Seabrook shoved the Anaheim Ducks’ Bobby Ryan into him late in the third period on Tuesday night. Daniel Carcillo is still out with a knee injury until later on this month. For the Sharks, Andrew Desjardins is on IR with flu-like symptoms. (NHL)
- Because Crawford will be out of the lineup tonight, the Blackhawks recalled Henrik Karlsson from the Rockford IceHogs to back up Emery. (Chicago Blackhawks)
