The Chicago Blackhawks really need to make some ground in their playoff race and tonight presents a great opportunity. 

With Chicago sitting 4 points behind the 4th place Nashville Predators, the Blackhawks take on the Detroit Red Wings for the next two games. 

Detroit currently sits in the bottom of the Discover Central division and are one of the worst teams in the league. However the Blackhawks will have to be careful as the Wings are 5-3-2 in their 10 so it might be a bit of a trap game. 

Head coach Jeremy Colliton told reporters that both Calvin de Haan and Adam Boqvist remain out with injuries so Nikita Zadorov and Ian Mitchell are in. 

Colliton also confirmed that Kevin Lankinen gets the start between the pipes. 

What do you think of Colliton's lineup for tonight?

Brandon Hagel -- Pius Suter -- Patrick Kane
Alex DeBrincat -- Kirby Dach -- Dylan Strome
Dominik Kubalik -- Philipp Kurashev -- Vinnie Hinostroza
Brett Connolly -- David Kampf -- Ryan Carpenter

Riley Stillman -- Connor Murphy
Duncan Keith -- Ian Mitchell
Nikita Zadorov -- Wyatt Kalynuk
