Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews have been paired up today in anticipation of tomorrow night's battle versus the New Jersey Devils.

It will be the first time since the start of the 2016-2017 NHL regular season that the pair will hit the ice together on the first line alongside Richard Panik.

This is not a usual lineup for the Chicago Blackhawks but coach Q may be putting them together in order to jump start Toews on the ice and to help work out their issues with the PK.

It will be interesting to see how the offensive power of the Blackhawks will be affected by this change, considering that it breaks up the always dependable second line of Patrick Kane, Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov.

No matter what Patrick Kane supports his team mate and says that "he is the easiest player to play with" when asked about his lineup with Toews during practice.

Let us hope that these changes to the offensive unit pays off and that the Chicago Blackhawks bring home a winner as they face the New Jersey Devils tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. (ET).
