PNC Arena – Raleigh, NC

The Chicago Blackhawks head into Carolina hoping to get a win on the board as they take on the Hurricanes Saturday night.

With the team still struggling to find some offense, head coach Joel Quenneville has once again juggled the lineup.

The Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane reunion was a short one, as Toews will find himself back with Brandon Saad and Richard Panik tonight. Kane will find himself re-united with Artem Anisimov while Nick Schmaltz will move from center and play left wing on the line.

Patrick Sharp moves back down to the bottom six and will play with Tommy Wingels and Ryan Hartman.

Those hoping to see a Scott Darling/Corey Crawford battle between the pipes will have to wait as Darling will start for Carolina, however Crawford will get some rest and Anton Forsberg will get the start.

Hawks fans will see some familiar faces on the other side of the ice as Trevor van Riemsdyk, Marcus Kruger, Tuevo Teravainen and Joakim Nordstrom are all expected to play.

Here's a look at tonight's probable lineups:
