Brandon Saad will draw back into the Blackhawks' lineup on Wednesday.
Saad spent Sunday's game in the press box, but Chicago still has high hopes for him. "He's a big part of our team; I liked how he practiced today," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said on Tuesday. "He gives us a lot of intangibles. He brings skill to our lineup, has speed, he's dangerous off the rush, and heavy in the puck area. We can use him on both sides of the ice. He'll be useful as we go along here and it's one game, so let's move on and be excited about tomorrow's game." Saad has 45 points and 20 penalty minutes in 75 games in 2013-14. Apr 8 - 3:21 PM
