The Chicago Blackhawks are in Edmonton tonight as they'll play what should be a very interesting game against the Edmonton Oilers. 

Oilers general manager Ken Holland announced earlier today that superstar Connor McDavid is out for the next 2-3 weeks. 

While the Oilers will be trying to figure things out without McDavid, Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton announced a couple of lineup changes. 

Dylan Strome will be a healthy scratch tonight.

Colliton explained that it's not injury related and he needs more from Strome going forward so he'll give a chance to Alex Nylander to get things going. 

They'll be a change on the blueline as well because Adam Boqvist will jump back into the lineup while Nick Seeler will watch from the press box. 

Robin Lehner will get the start for the Hawks against Mike Smith who will be between the pipes for the Oilers.
