The Wild are in Chicago tonight to take on the Blackhawks (630/AM 1390 The Fan). The Wild are 3-1 this season against Chicago, including a 5-3 win at United Center on October 26th.

The Blackhawks are suffering from a number of key injuries, including arguably their top two forwards- Patrick Kane and Jonathan Towes.

Minnesota has not avoided the injury bug themselves of late, as goalie Darcy Kuemper along with forwards Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund banged up against the Kings on Monday. Kuemper and Granlund are out Thursday, with Neiderreiter considered a game-time decision.
