Patrick Sharp and Johnny Oduya were back in Chicago Thursday night as the Stars faced the Blackhawks at the United Center.
Both players were pivotal members of multiple Stanley Cup championship teams in Chicago, so to say thanks the Blackhawks recognized each player with a tribute video during the first period.
The two teams are competing for first place in the Central Division, but the Chicago fans had nothing but love for the former Blackhawks.

Along with the game being somewhat of a homecoming for Sharp, it’s also the 800th game of his career.
Dallas led 4-0 after the first period thanks to three goals from Patrick Eaves and cruised to a 4-2 win.
