Blackhawks head to Calgary looking to end 4-game skid.
The best way for a team to get over a brutal loss like the one the Blackhawks had on Thursday in Edmonton is to get right back on the ice. That is exactly what they will be able to do as the Hawks will head to Calgary to face the Flames in their third game of a nine-game trip.
Friday's game will be the fourth of the season between Chicago and Calgary. The Blackhawks have won two of the first three including a 4-2 Hawks win back in December in their last meeting.
The scheduled goaltenders for Friday's Western Conference tilt will be Ray Emery (11-3-2, 2.57) for Chicago and Miikka Kiprusoff (22-17-3, 2.33) for Calgary. Emery gets the start after Corey Crawford was shelled in Edmonton on Thursday.
Puck drop is scheduled for 8:00 PM CST. The game will be televised in Chicago on CSN.
