The Blackhawks will counter with Scott Darling, who continues to draw starters with Corey Crawford on the shelf. After winning back-to-back games last weekend, Darling took a step back on Tuesday when he allowed three goals on just 17 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Wild. He's now 9-8-3 on the year with a  2.51 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage.
