It remains the Blackhawks' finest goaltending performance of 2013 and was arguably the turning point of the season that helped lead their charge to the top of the NHL standings.

Badly outplayed in the game, the Hawks rode the hot goaltending of Ray Emery to capture a 3-2 victory over the Flames in a shootout Feb. 2 in Calgary. The veteran turned aside 22 of 24 Flames shots in the third period alone and the Hawks later won it on Patrick Kane's shootout goal.

"It was probably the first game where we got dominated the way we did, but the response we got in the net was a special performance and one we'll always remember," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said before the Hawks faced the Kings on Monday night at the United Center. "That performance he had in the third period was all-world."

Emery is scheduled to start when the Flames make their first visit to the UC on Tuesday night and the veteran hopes to replicate the result of the 45-save performance he delivered during the Hawks' six-game road trip.

"We won that one in dramatic fashion at the end, but it's a new game (Tuesday)," Emery said. "You just have to prepare for team that's coming in playing pretty well. It was a tough schedule at the time, (but) I don't really look back too much."

No Hoss: Marian Hossa missed his second consecutive game when the Hawks faced the Kings and Quenneville said the veteran is "probably doubtful" against the Flames. Hossa is not skating as he recovers from an upper-body injury that a source said is to his shoulder. The winger was injured March 18 against the Avalanche.

"Hopefully by the weekend (Hossa) will be playing," Quenneville said. "(He) hasn't been on the ice the last couple of days, but he's progressing."

He said it: The Kings' Colin Fraser, who won the Stanley Cup with the Hawks in 2010 and then with the Kings in '12, on which city had the better celebration: "Oh, Chicago. I don't think any team anywhere would beat that."
