The Chicago Blackhawks, owners of the NHL’s best record, will put their 16-game point streak on the line tonight at home against the San Jose Sharks. The 'Hawks have not lost in regulation this season and look to have dodged a bullet, as RW Marian Hossa may avoid missing any time from the head shot he took on Tuesday night. The Blackhawks will also get defenseman Brent Seabrook and goalie Corey Crawford back from injury tonight, though Crawford will likely back up the undefeated Ray Emery. Chicago is the favorite in this one.

It is a light night in the NHL on Friday with just six teams in action. The other two games will see the Predators hosting the Canucks and the struggling Panthers facing a difficult test on the road against the Penguins.

The lines are from LVH as of about 8:00 a.m. P.T.
