Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

It's the first night of a back-to-back Tuesday for the Blackhawks against the Coyotes, which means we're getting Antti Raanta in net for the first time since Jan. 9. The team then heads on the road to face Pittsburgh on the first game of a seven-game road trip, so getting a win against Arizona is rather important. Here's the latest news:
