TAMPA -- Duncan Keith is out for tonight's game and Ray Emery will start in goal when the Blackhawks play the Tampa Bay Lightning at St. Pete Times Forum.
This is the second game Keith has missed with a left hand injury he sustained against the Nashville Predators on Monday. Coach Joel Quenneville is hopeful the defenseman can return Sunday when the Blackhawks host the Vancouver Canucks.
The Blackhawks are looking for their second victory in as many nights as they wrap up this two-game Florida road trip. The Lightning are 3-1-0 at home this season while the Blackhawks are 3-2-0 on the road.
