The Chicago Blackhawks host the Vancouver Canucks tonight at the United Center and we'll see some changes in the lineup.
To start, head coach Jeremy Colliton has decided to give Robin Lehner a break and Corey Crawford will get the start for the Hawks.
Lehner has by far been the better goalie so far this year with a 2.33 goals against average and .935 save percentage while Crawford has registered a 3.74 goals against average and .892 save percentage.
The other change happens up front as Colliton has made Dominik Kubalik a healthy scratch.
Zack Smith will take his place in the lineup on the team's third line.
Colliton believes Kubalik just needs a bit of a break.
“Young player and it's a long season, a lot of games, I think his play's dropped off a little bit. We want to get him back to where he was playing earlier in the year. Sometimes rest and some feedback can do that because we think he can really help us."
Here's tonight's full projected lineup:
Nylander - Toews - Saad
DeBrincat - Strome - Kane
Kubalik - Kampf - Dach
Caggiula - Carpenter - Shaw
Boqvist - Keith
de Haan - Seabrook
Maatta - Gustafsson
