The Chicago Blackhawks host the first of two games against the Carolina Hurricanes before they head out on the road. 

It's a tough task for the Blackhawks tonight as they deal with a Hurricanes team that has won four games in a row. 

Alex DeBrincat and Nicolas Beaudin were back on the ice tonight after spending some time on the COVID list. While they were back on the ice for practice, neither of them will jump back in the lineup tonight and instead target Thursday's game against the Hurricanes as a possible return date. 

We'll see Kevin Lankinen between the pipes once again and he'll look to build off his win against the Columbus Blue Jackets and keep is beautiful 1.97 goals against average and .937 save percentage kicking. 

Everything else will likely stay in tact for tonight. 

What do you think of tonight's projected lineup?

Mattias Janmark -- Philipp Kurashev -- Patrick Kane
Dominik Kubalik -- Dylan Strome -- Pius Suter
Matthew Highmore -- Carl Soderberg -- Andrew Shaw
Brandon Hagel -- David Kampf -- Reese Johnson

Duncan Keith -- Ian Mitchell
Calvin de Haan -- Connor Murphy
Nikita Zadorov -- Lucas Carlsson
