ST. PAUL, Minn. – Corey Crawford will start and the Blackhawks’ lineup should be the same when they face the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center.


EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – As he was growing up, Corey Crawford had a few goaltending idols. One of them will be officially calling it a career later this week.


The mood was fairly jovial on Wednesday night, a few minutes after the Blackhawks took a 3-2 shootout victory from the Pittsburgh Penguins.


Antti Raanta’s last United Center start was a strong one, a 31-stop shutout against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Dec. 21.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Scott Darling will get the start and Klas Dahlbeck will make his NHL debut when the Blackhawks face the Nashville Predators Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena.
