NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Blackhawks travel to Edmonton to take on the Oilers in their second game in as many days Friday. The Blackhawks fell 5-2 to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday evening for their third straight loss, and will look to rebound at Rogers Place in Edmonton.

The Hawks and Oilers have met only once this season, which saw Edmonton skate away with a 2-1 overtime victory in Chicago.

Edmonton is coming off a 4-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, and with Vancouver’s win over the Hawks, the Oilers now sit in seventh in the Pacific Division with a 17-18-2 record.

After allowing five goals Thursday, Anton Forsberg now holds a .902 save percentage and 3.33 goals against average. The starting goaltender for Friday night’s game has yet to be announced, but to give Forsberg a rest, Jeff Glass is expected to make his first career NHL start. Glass has a 10-4-1 record with a .917 save percentage and 2.60 goals against average for the AHL Rockford IceHogs this season.

Cam Talbot is likely to get the start for Edmonton. In his 27 appearances this season, Talbot has a 14-11-1 record with a .907 save percentage and 2.89 goals against average.
