Chicago - The Anaheim Ducks are looking to rebound from a 4-0 loss the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday. The loss spurred Bruce Boudreau to hold an extra practice yesterday. To say that this game is huge is, well, an understatement.

The Blackhawks are coming off of a 2-0 win over the Calgary Flames. Joel Quenneville has decided to stay with the hot glove in Ray Emery tonight.
