Anton Khudobin turned aside 37 of 40 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to Carolina. Khudobin bounced back with a strong performance after he surrendered four goals on just 16 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday. However, he came up short in the shootout when he allowed two goals on three attempts by Carolina. Khudobin will enter his next start with a mark of 3-1-1, a 2.17 goals-against average and .922 save percentage.

Elvis Merzlikins misplayed the puck twice and gave the Blackhawks two gift goals in a 3-1 loss. "I messed up big-time," Merzlikins said. "I take all the responsibility on my shoulders. Not going to go into excuses, but the luck wasn't on my side this time. The puck got stuck, stick on the boards, and I shot it on the backhand ... but right now I'm not a good goalie on the backhand as a player. So, I shouldn't shoot it on the backhand. I should shoot, maybe, on the (forehand). I messed up not once (but) twice tonight, so the team doesn't deserve this." Merzlikins is 2-2-1 with a 2.99 GAA and a .908 save percentage. He will likely play only once this week so keep that in mind when filling out your rosters.
