Ray Emery Will Start In Net For The Chicago Blackhawks On Friday Vs. Ottawa

The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 last night, but a win didn't always look so sure. Starting goaltender Corey Crawford allowed three goals in the first period before being pulling for Ray Emery. Emery was fantastic in his stead, allowing only one with four seconds remaining in the game when the win was already secure.

Today, the Chicago Tribune's Brian Hamilton is reporting that Emery will start in net on Friday against the Ottawa Senators, his former team.

In other Blackhawks news, defenseman Nikolas Hjalmarsson and star center Jonathan Toews will be out against the Senators.
