Ben Smith will be in the lineup and Corey Crawford gets the start in goal when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Buffalo Sabres tonight at the United Center.

Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith had the morning off, but both will play tonight.

Smith, who was recalled on Tuesday morning, scored a goal against Columbus on Jan. 10. He has two goals in nine games with the Blackhawks this season.

The Blackhawks will face a frustrated bunch in the Sabres, who are 1-4-1 in their last six games. The Sabres haven't won a game on the road since Dec. 3 against Nashville.
