Andrew Shaw returns to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup tonight against the Florida Panthers after missing two straight games. Shaw was checked hard late Tuesday night in the Dallas Stars 4-3 defeat. The lineup has been all messed up without Shaw in the lineup including the Hawks calling up Joakim Nordstrom for two games before sending Nordstrom back to Rockford with tonight’s expected return tonight.

Shaw for the season has 8 goals and 9 assists with a +10 rating and for his size surprisingly leads the Hawks in hits this year.  The Blackhawks haven’t won a game in regulation since Shaw was hurt with the Hawks going 0-1-1 in the two games he missed.

The Blackhawks look to get back on track in the win column with the Florida Panthers in town tonight.

Will Shaw be the missing piece to get the Hawks back on track tonight?
