The Chicago Blackhawks head to the Big Apple tonight, but the exciting part of the game tonight is the fact that Jonathan Toews and Brent Seabrook returns tonight to the ice.

The Chicago Blackhawks will be looking for a bit of revenge tonight as they travel to New York for their 2nd game in 5 days with the Rangers.

The good news we learned today was the fact that the Captain Jonathan Toews will be on the ice for the first time since the middle of the November when the Hawks were on the circus trip.

The Blackhawks also get Brent Seabrook back tonight which makes Michal Kempny the odd man out for tonight’s game while Trevor van Riemsdyk will be on the ice once again.

The one thing that hopefully doesn’t happen with the return of Toews to the lineup is that Marian Hossa becomes a checking forward like he was last season.  With Toews on the mend, Hossa has looked like a young man leading the Chicago Blackhawks in goals score with 15, but let’s hope he doesn’t take the foot off the gas with Jonathan Toews back in the lineup.

The Chicago Blackhawks are still sitting on top the Central Division even with all of the injuries.  This season has me really shaking my head.  Are the Hawks really this good? Is the NHL this watered down? Will the Hawks stroke of luck start to wind down? I don’t know but this season is heading into it’s 30th game, and I still don’t know what to make of any of it, but I’m enjoying all the Hawks victories with the kids on the roster.
