What to watch: The Hawks hope to ride the momentum of their stirring come-from-behind win over the Blues Tuesday. Corey Crawford will start in goal for the Hawks, who still are battling an assortment of injuries and ailments. The Stars are coming off a 5-2 loss Wednesday at Winnipeg, where things got a little nasty near the end. Former Hawk Adam Burish picked up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and a game misconduct for his part in the melee. Richard Bachman started in goal for the Stars against the Jets, so look for Kari Lehtonen against the Hawks. Lehtonen is 29-15-4 with a 2.21 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. He had back-to-back shutouts recently over Anaheim and Minnesota so goals could be tough to come by for the Hawks. The Stars lead the Pacific Division and rank third in the Western Conference. If the season ended now, the Hawks and Stars would meet in the first round of the playoffs.

Season series: Stars lead 2-1.

Next: Washington Capitals at the United Center, 6 p.m. Sunday
