Daniel Carcillo will be back in the lineup and Corey Crawford will get his fourth consecutive start when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Detroit Red Wings Friday night at the United Center.
Rookie forward Jimmy Hayes, who was called up from the Rockford IceHogs Thursday morning, will make his NHL debut.
Despite the fact that the Blackhawks and Wings have their long-standing rivalry, this will be their first meeting of the regular season. Nevertheless, it promises to be a good one between the top two Central Division foes.
Marcus Kruger will miss his second consecutive game. Kruger, who was re-injured against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, has not skated since then.
