Sikura was recalled from Rockford (AHL) and will make his season debut on Sunday.

Sikura has been solid in the AHL this season, leading Rockford with 16 points (9G / 7A) in 22 games. Sikura will take Anton Wedin's spot on the roster and in the lineup and needs to make the most of this opportunity. He has struggled in his NHL career to-date, posting just 11 assists and no goals in 38 games.

Crawford will start Friday in New Jersey.

Crawford surrendered four goals on 30 shots in the Blackhawks loss to the Blues on Monday. Robin Lehner started last night, so Crawford will get the Devils in New Jersey on Friday evening. Crawford has struggled recently, going 0-2-0 while giving up 11 goals on 68 shots (.838 SV%) in his last three appearances.

Strome (concussion) skated this morning but will not play vs. the Blues.

Strome is feeling better but will miss his fourth consecutive game with concussion symptoms. With Strome still out, Andrew Shaw now listed on the injury report, and no cap space to call anyone up, Chicago will have to play with just 11 forwards and six defensemen on Monday.

Shaw (undisclosed) will not play on Monday.

The Blackhawks were extremely vague when they released Shaw's update, simply stating that he will not play vs. St. Louis and is undergoing further evaluation. Shaw's injury puts Chicago in a very difficult spot as they will have to play short a forward tonight with Dylan Strome still out and not enough cap-space to call-up a forward from Rockford (AHL).

Lehner will not be available on Monday due to flu-like symptoms.

The Blackhawks have recalled Kevin Lankinen to serve as Corey Crawford's backup on Monday because Lehner is out with flu-like symptoms. After tonight, the Blackhawks are off until Thursday, so look for Lehner to be ready to go in their back-to-back in Boston (THU) and New Jersey (FRI).

Crawford will start Monday vs. the Blues.

Crawford allowed two goals on 15 shots after replacing Robin Lehner in the Blackhawks' blowout loss in Colorado on Saturday. Crawford had an inconsistent month but finished November with a 4-2-2 record, 2.57 GAA, .925 SV% and one shutout in eight starts and one relief appearance. He comes in on Saturday at 4-4-0 with a 2.66 GAA and .917 SV% on home-ice.

Lehner will start Saturday in Colorado.

Lehner allowed one goal on 41 shots in a losing effort in Dallas last Saturday. Corey Crawford started the last two games but Lehner draws a tough assignment in Colorado on Saturday. The Blackhawks had a tough time slowing Nathan MacKinnon down last night and it will be even more difficult with Mikko Rantanen back in the lineup tonight.
