Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks after a week off for what seems like the 2nd time in 3 weeks are back on the ice tonight at the United Center!
The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the hottest teams in the NHL, and the scariest part for the rest of the NHL is that the Hawks will be back to full strength tonight with Niklas Hjalmarsson and Johnny Oduya back in the lineup tonight.
Of course, this is pretty exciting to see Oduya back in a Blackhawks jersey after being gone since the 2015 Stanley Cup Final. The Hawks have been missing Oduya since he left, and one has to wonder if Stan couldn’t have done something different in the 2015 summer to keep Oduya with the Hawks.
That being said Oduya will be on the ice with Hjalmarsson who has been out with an injury for a few games now. The best part is that now Brian Campbell will be on the third defensive pairing which really makes the Chicago Blackhawks defense a strong unit.

The Chicago Blackhawks of course have been red hot not because of the defense, but because the offense has been firing on all cylinders. The rest was needed I’m sure during a long 82 game season, but it will be great to see the offense back on the ice tonight!
