According to a report on TSN, the Blackhawks will activate both Adam Burish and Ben Eager for Game Two of their series against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night. Bryan Bickell and Jordan Hendry are reportedly taking a seat.
Which power forward moves up to join Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane is still in question; Troy Brouwer played exceptionally well during the regular season with the two young stars, but hasn’t been effective since returning from a personal leave at the end of the season. With Tomas Kopecky playing well with Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp, it could mean Andrew Ladd sees time with the Hawks top line.
Dustin Byfuglien will move back to the blue line, which is why Hendry is sitting.
