The Blackhawks will again turn to Ray Emery when the team faces the Minnesota Wild on national television Wednesday night.

The 29-year-old netminder has gone 6-1-2 in 10 appearances with the Blackhawks this season, while giving up 2.69 goals-against per game. Emery was most recently in net during Sunday's overtime win against San Jose, when he made a season-high 35 saves.

Wednesday's game will pit the top two teams in the Western Conference against one another for the first time all season, as Minnesota leads the Blackhawks by just three points for the top spot in the standings. The game will be can seen on Versus in Chicago, with radio coverage on WGN Radio, starting at 6:30 p.m. CT.
