Emery in net as Blackhawks look to end skid

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Ray Emery will get the start in goal and Sami Lepisto and Dylan Olsen will be among the defensive pairs when the Chicago Blackhawks face the Phoenix Coyotes later tonight at Jobing.com Arena.

It's been a nightmarish road trip for the Blackhawks, who are trying to erase an 0-6-1 skid. They'll be facing a Coyotes team that has won four in a row.

Coach Joel Quenneville said there are no updates on defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson and Steve Montador, who both have upper-body injuries. The two are back in Chicago.
