ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Ray Emery
his starter on Tuesday afternoon. It'll be Emery's fifth straight game and his fourth start in the last five. Emery was the goalie of record in Chicago's 3-2 overtime win Sunday against San Jose, stopping 35 shots and improving his record this season to 6-1-2.
"He's played well all year," said coach Joel Quenneville
. "He's earned the opportunity to keep on going. He's got the confidence, he's been productive and we want to keep it going as long as we can."
He made 42 saves in a 5-3 win against Minnesota as a member of the Ottawa Senators
in November 2006 -- his lone career start against the Wild.
Here's how the rest of the Blackhawks -- and the Wild -- likely will look
when they hit the ice here at the Xcel Energy Center (7:30 p.m. ET, Versus).
