After falling to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night, the Blackhawks have returned home and will host the Winnipeg Jets tonight. Catch all the action on Comcast SportsNet beginning at 5:30 with Blackhawks Pregame Live.

The Blackhawks were only 32 seconds away from their first shutout of the season before Patrick Kane fired a slap shot past Minnesota goaltender Darcy Kuemper, but it wasn't enough to send the game into overtime.

Jason Pominville and Matt Cooke each found the back of the net to give the Wild a 2-1 victory in regulation over the defending champions, and tonight the Blackhawks will look to bounce back as they host the Winnipeg Jets.
