Johnny Oduya's two-game point streak ended on Monday, but he played a strong game against Los Angeles.

Duncan Keith tallied a power play goal in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Kings.

Keith scored when he one-timed a feed from Marian Hossa, past a screened Jonathan Quick. It proved to be the eventual game-winner as well. Keith now has nine goals and 44 points this season, leading all defenders on the team.

Marian Hossa helped lead the charge past the Kings Monday night with two points in the 4-1 win.

Hossa who now has points in consecutive games, was responsible for the game's final tally. He sent a sweet wrister past Quick, and also received the primary assist in what proved to be the game's winning goal in Duncan Keith's power play marker. Hossa now has 22 goals and 57 points this season.
Mar 31 - 1:34 AM

Scott Darling was in excellent form, making 31 saves in Monday's big 4-1 win over the Kings.

Darling was only beaten on a fluky floater through traffic by Jake Muzzin. One Darling certainly wants back, but also one of the forgivable variety. Remarkably, Darling is now 8-3-0 in 12 games with just 21 goals against for the Blackhawks this season.
Mar 31 - 1:20 AM

David Rundblad will be listed as a healthy scratch Monday versus the Los Angeles Kings.

Rundblad will be held out of the lineup for a second straight game and will be scratched for the fifth time in the team's past six games. He has three goals and 13 points with a plus 14 rating in 45 games this year. He has no fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 7:05 PM

Michal Rozsival will remain in the Blackhawks lineup Monday night against the Kings.

Rozsival has dressed in 59 games this season but has recently found himself in and out of the lineup. He'll get to dress Monday night versus the Kings while David Rundblad will watch from the press box. Rozsival has a goal and 10 assists with 97 hits and 79 blocked shots this year.

It sounds like Patrick Kane (clavicle) is ahead of schedule and coach Joel Quenneville teased that there could be a very good update on the talented winger's status soon.

"There's been some excellent progress," Quenneville said Monday. "It could be good news. We'll see." Kane has been skating regularly for nearly two weeks and he was on the ice again on Monday in full gear. He suffered a broken clavicle on Feb. 24, which required surgery to repair, and his initial return wasn't expected to be until mid-May. Stay tuned to see if that has changed.
Mar 30 - 6:57 PM

Rookies Kyle Baun and Michael Paliotta will both be healthy scratches in Monday's contest with the Kings.

The pair of rookies will have to wait to make their NHL debuts as the Blackhawks will roll with the same lineup from Sunday's win over the Jets. With Patrick Kane and Dan Carcillo sidelined due to injuries, look for the two youngsters to make their debuts in the near future.
Mar 30 - 6:54 PM

Teuvo Teravainen will be in the lineup Monday night versus the Los Angeles Kings.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville confirmed there will be no lineup changes from Sunday's game against the Jets. That means newly signed rookies, Kyle Baun and Michael Paliotta, will be healthy scratches Monday. Teravainen has just seven points in 23 games this season but his future in the NHL remains bright.
Mar 30 - 6:50 PM

Scott Darling will be in the crease for the Blackhawks Monday night against the Kings.

Corey Crawford just started for the Hawks Sunday night in Winnipeg so Darling will get the call Monday night. The 26-year-old rookie has appeared in 11 games this season and has a 7-3-0 record with a 1.84 goals-against-average and .938 save percentage. It's been a nice start to his NHL career and he'll look to continue the hot streak against a tough Winnipeg team.
Mar 30 - 6:39 PM

Brad Richards recorded his 12th goal of 2014-15 in Sunday's 4-3 win against Winnipeg.

He didn't have a point in his previous four games and he's produced a meager total of 36 in 72 games this season. Richards can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer and it's hard to see Chicago bringing him back.
Mar 30 - 12:49 PM

Patrick Sharp netted his 14th goal of the year in Sunday's 4-3 win over Winnipeg.

He had the game-tying goal at the 6:27 mark of the third period. Sharp has four goals and four assists in his past eight contests. He has 40 points in 61 games this season
Mar 30 - 12:42 PM

Kyle Baun was listed as a scratch Sunday, but he didn't even travel with the team to Winnipeg due to visa issues.

His NHL debut could come against the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. "He is an option to play," coach Joel Quenneville said. "Initially, you just get him out there and see what his strengths are and you want him to play to his ability and what makes him a hockey player."
Mar 30 - 12:39 PM

Niklas Hjalmarsson (hand/wrist) was able to play on Sunday.

Hjalmarsson left Friday's contest due to the injury, but he didn't end up missing a full game. He had an assist and was on the ice for 22:33 minutes in Chicago's 4-3 win over Winnipeg.
Mar 30 - 1:35 AM

Corey Crawford stopped 31 of 34 shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over Winnipeg.

Winnipeg held 2-1 and 3-2 leads in the game but the Hawks scored two third period goals to come up with the win. Crawford has struggled of late, going 2-3-0 in his last five games and he has allowed three goals or more in four of those five games. With Patrick Kane sidelined for a while, the Hawks will need Crawford to step up his game if they want to make a run in the playoffs. The 30-year-old has a 31-17-5 record in 53 games this season.
