What To Watch For

•   Seth Jones scored his first goal since December 2 on Saturday, snapping a 35-game goal drought. Can the defenseman build off yesterday’s goal and get back on track over the final 21 games of the 2021-22 season?

•   Marc-André Fleury will start for the Blackhawks tonight against the Jets despite rumors of trade discussions with Minnesota swirling last night. Derek King said that no one would be held out of the lineup tonight for asset protection. Fleury was phenomenal in a losing effort against the Boston Bruins at the United Center earlier this week and has a 2.90 GAA this season despite going through a rough patch leading up to his performance against Boston.

•   Patrick Kane has 11 points in his last five games (one goal, ten assists).
