ST. LOUIS Patrick Kane will be in the lineup but Fernando Pisani will be out when the Chicago Blackhawks play the St. Louis Blues tonight at Scottrade Center.

Kane, who missed eight games with a left ankle injury, said he felt good after skate this morning. He was once again on a line with Troy Brouwer and Jonathan Toews.

Everything feels fine; well see how it is during the game, he said. Right now its as good as its going to get for a while.

Coach Joel Quenneville said theyll gauge Kanes playing time by how he feels.

Hes ready to go. If theres a problem or an issue, well look at it then, he said.

Pisani is out due to illness. Marty Turco will get his second consecutive start. Corey Crawford (illness) did skate with the team this morning and Quenneville said the goaltender is feeling much better.

Ty Conklin, who was in net when the Blackhawks beat the Blues 7-5 on Nov. 30, is St. Louis starting goaltender tonight.

Northwestern's Scottie Lindsey named Big Ten Player of the Week

Scottie Lindsey's been tearing it up lately, and the Big Ten has taken notice.

The conference named Lindsey its Player of the Week on Monday, the junior guard and Fenwick High School product receiving that honor for the first time in his career.

Lindsey scored 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds in Northwestern's win over Rutgers last Thursday and added 22 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in Sunday's win over Iowa.

Lindsey is the Wildcats' leading scorer this season with 15.8 points per game, good for seventh in the Big Ten. He also ranks fourth in the league with an 88.9-percent shooting clip from the free-throw line.

And how about this fun fact: Lindsey has scored in double figures in all 19 of the team's games this season, the longest streak by a Cat since John Shurna in 2011-12 and the longest streak by a Cat to start a season since Evan Eschmeyer in 1998-99.

Northwestern is 15-4 on the season and 4-2 in conference play after Sunday's 35-point blowout of Iowa.
