The Chicago Blackhawks are in the playoffs and it's going to be absolutely exciting. 

Chicago has missed the playoffs the last two seasons and haven't gotten past the first round since their Stanley Cup in 2015. 

The group has changed quite a bit but the team should still be able to put together an interesting first round fight. 

The good news is that they'll get some reinforcements. 

According to Scott Powers of The Athletic, the Blackhawks should get three key players back from injury. 

Powers reports that according to his sources, Adam Boqvist, Drake Caggiula and Calvin de Haan should all be cleared to play.

Powers also confirmed that it's highly unlikely Andrew Shaw, Brent Seabrook and Zack Smith return.
