Forsberg has struggled mightily this season and allowed five goals on 31 shots in his last start. Still, this is an opportunity for him to reassert himself as the team's starter for however long Crawford ends up being sidelined. "He got the chance and he took it," Forsberg said of Glass. "I have to do the same thing."

Anton Forsberg will be tasked with holding the fort while Corey Crawford recovers from an upper-body injury.

Forsberg has only played a little more than two periods of relief in the past three weeks, so he joked that he is well-rested. He had a couple of tough losses earlier this month when he filled in for an injured Crawford, but he has won just one time in 11 appearances, including eight starts, this season. Forsberg will need to be much better this time around.

Anton Forsberg stopped 33 of 35 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Dallas Stars.

With Corey Crawford sidelined at least another two games, the Blackhawks will hope to lean on Forsberg. There will be some pressure on the Swedish netminder considering his early season struggles and the impressive J-F Berube waiting for his turn behind him. For now, Forsberg has a 1-2-3 record with a 3.34 goals against average and .910 save percentage. Considering the Blackhawks play tomorrow night on a back-to-back, we'd expect Forsberg to back up Berube against the Kings.

He has a 1-2-2 record with a 3.67 goals against average and .904 save percentage. If he performs poorly then you shouldn't be surprised if J-F Berube is in goal for the Blackhawks' next game.
