WHO TO WATCH

ANDREW COGLIANO, EDM

It's sure to be a skating game against the Blackhawks and he has Edmonton's best wheels. They'll need his jump.

PATRICK KANE, CHI

Notched three points in Chicago's last visit here and could easily bag three more if Edmonton doesn't do a better job on defence.

COMING IN

EDMONTON (25-21-3) is coming off a 2-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

CHICAGO (27-13-8) is coming off a 4-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks.

GAME NOTES

After beating the San Jose Sharks 4-2 on Saturday, the Blackhawks were rewarded with a day off in Las Vagas ... It seems like concussions can trigger the points gene. Robert Nilsson has four points in three games since returning from his concussion. Ales Hemsky has eight points in five games since returning from his ...Craig MacTavish didn't skate any lines in practice yesterday - it was all power play - so there's no telling how he'll juggle his lines in the wake of Penner's play and Sam Gagner's possible return.

HURT PARADE

EDMONTON: RW Fernando Pisani (broken ankle); C Sam Gagner (ankle)

CHICAGO: D Brent Sopel (undisclosed).
