After dropping Friday's game to the Canucks in a shootout, the Blackhawks will host the New Jersey Devils tonight. Catch all the action on Comcast SportsNet beginning at 6:30 with Blackhawks Pregame Live.

Friday night did not go as planned for the Blackhawks, who lost in an eight-round shootout to the Vancouver Canucks despite their early two-goal lead. Tonight they'll look to get back in the win column as they host the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils (15-15-7) are coming into tonight's game after winning three of their last four matchups. Veteran Jaromir Jagr has played a big part in his team's recent success, tallying points in his last seven straight games. He is one goal away from beating Mark Messier for seventh all-time in the NHL. 

Speaking of points streaks, Patrick Kane will be looking to tally at least a point in his 12th straight game, tying his own previous record back from Nov. 3-27.

The last time these two teams met at the United Center was back on Nov. 3, 2010; a 5-3 New Jersey victory. 

Point leaders

Blackhawks: Patrick Kane (21G, 27A), Patrick Sharp (16G, 18A), Jonathan Toews (13G, 20A), Duncan Keith (3G, 29A), Marian Hossa (14G, 16A)
