Chicago (29-14-5) returns home after winning both of their last two games while on the road with their fathers. Vancouver (22-19-6) currently sits outside of the playoff picture and could use two points tonight to keep up with the respective clubs ahead of them in the standings. The Blackhawks are set to start struggling goaltender Corey Crawford despite him sitting during their last contest in Boston, in which backup Scott Darling posted an exceptional 30-save shutout. These two hockey clubs are known not to be fond of one another, so tonight should be a good one. Here are your expected lines:

Chicago

Hartman-Toews-Panik

Panarin-Anisimov-Kane

Hinostroza-Kero-Hossa

Rasmussen-Schmaltz-Tootoo

Keith-Hjalmarsson

Kempny-Seabrook

van Riemsdyk-Rozsival

Corey Crawford (17-10-3, .919 SV%, 2.54 GAA)

Vancouver

D. Sedin-H. Sedin-Eriksson

Baertschi-Horvat-Burrows

Granlund-Sutter-Megna

Gaunce-Chaput-Skille

Edler-Stecher

Sbisa-Tanev

Tryamkin-Biega

Ryan Miller (14-10-3, .919 SV%, 2.48 GAA)

Have a solid rest of your weekend. Post-game later tonight.
