ST. LOUIS Patrick Kane will be in the lineup but Fernando Pisani will be out when the Chicago Blackhawks play the St. Louis Blues tonight at Scottrade Center.

Kane, who missed eight games with a left ankle injury, said he felt good after skate this morning. He was once again on a line with Troy Brouwer and Jonathan Toews.

Everything feels fine; well see how it is during the game, he said. Right now its as good as its going to get for a while.

Coach Joel Quenneville said theyll gauge Kanes playing time by how he feels.

Hes ready to go. If theres a problem or an issue, well look at it then, he said.

Pisani is out due to illness. Marty Turco will get his second consecutive start. Corey Crawford (illness) did skate with the team this morning and Quenneville said the goaltender is feeling much better.

Ty Conklin, who was in net when the Blackhawks beat the Blues 7-5 on Nov. 30, is St. Louis starting goaltender tonight.
