Duncan Keith is back in the lineup but will Bryan Bickell be sitting? It could happen when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Winnipeg Jets tonight at the United Center.
Coach Joel Quenneville said he could be going with seven defensemen tonight, but that no one on the forward side was ailing. When asked if Bickell could be out tonight, Quenneville said, "we'll see." Bickell has struggled through most of the season and especially since coming back from a left-knee injury that kept him out nearly a month. Quenneville said the Blackhawks will decide what to do after warmups.
Corey Crawford will start for the Blackhawks and Al Montoya will start for the Winnipeg Jets, who have won five out of their last six games.
