After suffering a 4-3 loss to the Stars in their return to the United Center two nights ago, the Blackhawks have hit the road once again and will face off against the Wild tonight. Catch all the action beginning at 6:30 on Comcast SportsNet with Blackhawks Pregame Live.

Tuesday's return to the United Center didn't go as well as the Blackhawks had hoped for, but tonight they'll have a chance to record their seventh consecutive road win as they head to Minnesota. 

The Wild (16-8-5) are coming into tonight's matchup after recording a 2-0 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night. 

Minnesota goaltender Josh Harding has been putting on an incredible performance this year, recording a league-low 1.45 goals-against average and not allowing more than three goals in all 22 games he's played since the season began. In fact, he joined Patrick Kane on the list of the league's three stars of the month for November.

Speaking of Kane, the Blackhawks' point leader recorded goals in both games against the Wild in October, as well as 10 of the team's league-high 51 goals outside of Chicago.

The Blackhawks have yet to announce whether Corey Crawford or Antti Raanta will get the start in net. However, the defending champions will be without Andrew Shaw and Michal Handzus on their one-game road trip.
