Projected lineups for Sharks-Blackhawks

Sunday, 01.15.2012 / 1:37 PM

By Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent / At the Rink blog

Joel Quenneville didn't reveal who would start Sunday night's game against the San Jose Sharks at the United Center (7 p.m. ET), but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Corey Crawford in net after Saturday's strong performance.

Chicago did not hold a morning skate on Sunday, but the answer to starting goalie should be relayed by Quenneville on Sunday afternoon when he meets with the media prior to the game.

Here is a look at how the lineups for the Sharks and Blackhawks might look like:

SHARKS
Patrick Marleau - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski
Ryane Clowe - Logan Couture - Benn Ferriero
Jamie McGinn - Michal Handzus - Torrey Mitchell
Brad Winchester - Andrew Desjardins - Andrew Murray

Jason Demers - Brent Burns
Dan Boyle - Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Douglas Murray - Justin Braun

Antti Niemi
Thomas Greiss

Desjardins took a hit to the head in Saturday night's game against Columbus and might be held out depending on how he feels upon another examination Saturday in Chicago. If he cannot play, look for Tommy Wingels or Frazer McLaren to draw into the starting lineup.


BLACKHAWKS
Viktor Stalberg - Jonathan Toews - Patrick Kane
Andrew Shaw - Marcus Kruger - Marian Hossa
Bryan Bickell - Dave Bolland - MichaelFrolik
Jimmy Hayes - Jamal Mayers - Andrew Brunette

Duncan Keith - Brent Seabrook
Nick Leddy - Niklas Hjalmarsson
John Scott - Steve Montador

Corey Crawford
Ray Emery

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
