Michael Hutchinson will get the start for the Jets in goal while Corey Crawford has gotten the nod tonight. These two both faced each other last matchup with Hutchinson notching the 33 save shutout while Corey Crawford stopped 27 of 28 shots and recorded the loss. Currently Michael Hutchinson leads all goaltenders with a 1.73 Goals Against Average and .940 Save Percentage having played in 12 games. On the other end of the ice Corey Crawford has numbers that are close with a 1.87 Goals Against Average and a .927 Save Percentage through 19 games. Crawford will make his second start for the Blackhawks since returning from missing action due to an ankle injury.

A player to keep an eye out for tonight is the red hot Patrick Kane who seems to have found a groove. The hot streak began dating back to November 16 and since then he has recorded 11 goals and 14 assists for 25 points total, which currently is the most in the league over that period. Patrick Kane also is currently leading the Chicago Blackhawks in goals and assists with 16 and 20 respectively. He will also be looking to keep his current steak of 6 games with a point alive so tune in for a Showtime PK88.

Catch the game tonight, 8:30 PM ET on CSC+, TSN3!
