Corey Crawford will get the start in goal tonight, as the Chicago Blackhawks look to keep their winning streak alive against the Detroit Red Wings at the United Center.
Its the fifth start in six games and the second in as many nights for Crawford, who is 4-0-0 with a 1.99 goals-against average.
Hes played well this week, so were going to keep him going, coach Joel Quenneville said Sunday afternoon. He looks quick, he's got some momentum as well. So we'll go back to him tonight.

The Blackhawks will get a slight reprieve from their hectic schedule the next two days tonight will be their sixth game in eight days. But with a six-game road trip coming up, Quenneville will keep an eye on his goaltending situation, and where backup Ray Emery fits into it.
We go on that next road trip there, and we've got two days off, then we've got three in four nights. I'm sure Ray's going to get a game, at least, Quenneville said. I don't want to look too far ahead, but Corey's deserving to keep it going and see how it goes.
For the Red Wings, center Darren Helm is out tonight.
