After one final Stanley Cup celebration at our nation's capital, the Blackhawks returned to Chicago where they'll host the Winnipeg Jets tonight. Catch all the action on Comcast SportsNet Plus, beginning at 6:30 with Blackhawks Pregame Live. 

These two teams faced off just four days ago when the Blackhawks recorded a crushing 5-1 victory in Winnipeg.

The Blackhawks (9-2-4) are coming into tonight's matchup following an overtime loss to the Calgary Flames and a visit to the White House. Now, they'll look to get back in the win column against a number of former teammates.
