(CBS) Ray Emery is expected to start his third straight game in net Tuesday night when the Blackhawks face the Wild in Minnesota.

Just last week it appeared Corey Crawford would be the No. 1 goaltender in the playoffs, but with just 10 regular season games remaining, Emery remains very much in the mix.

Crawford has not played since a shaky loss against the St. Louis Blues last Thursday. Since then, Emery posted back-to-back wins over the Nashville Predators over the weekend, including a 1-0 shutout Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Blackhawks will also get a big boost with the return of Patrick Sharp. The winger hasn’t played since injuring his shoulder March 6.
