T.J. Oshie Returns for St. Louis Blues vs Chicago Blackhawks

T.J. Oshie missed Monday’s contest between the St. Louis Blues and Winnipeg Jets after his fiancee gave birth to a little girl. He’ll be back in the lineup tonight when the league-leading Blues take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks though, and he’ll certainly be a welcome addition to the top-six.

With Vladimir Tarasenko on the shelf for around six weeks following successful surgery on his right hand, the Blues were a bit depleted against Winnipeg. They still came up with the victory though, and now have points in nine straight. They have a chance to lock up a playoff spot this evening by taking down a Central Division rival, and Oshie will be looking to have an energized game following the birth of his first child.

The game will be on national television, and should feature a playoff atmosphere in Chicago.
