Scott Darling will play between the pipes on Friday.

Darling last started in a game on Jan. 6, so he could use the work to stay fresh. He has a 11-4-2 record, 2.34 GAA, and .924 save percentage in 20 contests this season.

Jonathan Toews has scored three goals in the last 25 games.

"You always seem to be really hard on yourself in any aspect of your game if the numbers aren't there," Toews said. "I just have to keep working. I'm trying not to lose faith and confidence. Just find the way when I do play well, to let it carry into the next game. Stop forcing the offense so much." He has collected seven points in the past 10 games, which is encouraging. Toews also rejected the notion that his previously injured back is an issue.

Corey Crawford let four pucks get past him on only 23 shots Tuesday night, but it was enough to give the Blackhawks a 6-4 win over the Avalanche.

Crawford’s save percentage Tuesday night of .826 was not overly impressive, but at least the Blackhawks goalie got the win. On Sunday, he recorded a save percentage of .906 in a loss to the Wild. Crawford has four wins in his last six games with a save percentage well under the .900 mark.

Jan 18 - 12:04 AM

Michal Rozsival will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Wild.

He suited up in Sunday's game against the Wild, but won't get a crack at the Avs tonight. The veteran has one assist in 14 games this season. Jordin Tootoo will also watch the game from the press box tonight.
Jan 17 - 8:57 PM

Corey Crawford will get the nod in Tuesday's game against Colorado.

Crawford dropped each of his last two decisions on Friday and Sunday, but the 'Hawks will come back with him tonight. He has a 16-10-3 record with a 2.49 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage this season.
Jan 17 - 6:31 PM

Marian Hossa will start Tuesday's game alongside Vinnie Hinostroza and Tanner Kero.

Richard Panik will take Hossa's spot with Jonathan Toews and Ryan Hartman. Hossa hasn't scored a goal in the last nine games and he has collected just three assists during that span.

Jordin Tootoo will be scratched against the Wild on Sunday.

Through 34 games so far this season the veteran winger has posted no points with 30 hits thus far. Which unfortunately makes him more suitable for the waiver wire.
