Scott Darling got the call for the Chicago Blackhawks as they faced the Edmonton Oilers to wrap up a six-game road trip Saturday night at Rogers Place in Edmonton.

The Hawks were looking for their fifth consecutive victory as they battle the Minnesota Wild for the top spot in the Central Division.

"The boys have come to play and we’ve played well–it’s four in a row now," defenseman Brent Seabrook said before puck drop. "We had a tough stretch there where I think we were leading and had chances to get points or win the game late in the game and we didn’t get it done. I see the guys come and be in tight games the last couple of games and to be able to push it into our favor and come out with two points has been huge."

Darling has not appeared in a game since a Jan. 28 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. No. 1 netminder Corey Crawford got the win during the Hawks’ 5-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night.

Darling was opposed by Cam Talbot for the Oilers.
