Patrick Kane Ready To Play For Blackhawks Tuesday

Via Chicago Breaking Sports, we learn that Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane took part in practice today, and will be traveling with the team to St. Louis for Tuesday’s game:

“He skated pretty well today and felt good,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after Monday’s practice at the United Center. “He looked good today.”

Kane participated in full drills during Monday’s hour-long workout and confirmed he would travel to St. Louis.

“I’m going to skate in the morning (on Tuesday) and then we’ll make a decision after that,” said Kane, who has been out since Dec. 5. “I would say it’s pretty probable.”

Also, Corey Crawford, who missed last night’s game while ill with the flu, practiced Monday and although he seemed fine, Coach Q said Marty Turco, who made 26 saves Sunday night, will play again on Tuesday. This is a good idea to keep both goaltenders sharp.
