The Stars struggled to get anything going when they hosted the Blackhawks last week, but they jumped out to an early lead Tuesday thanks to a brilliant goal from Patrick Eaves.

Eaves took a pass from Jamie Benn and somehow managed to roof it past Corey Crawford from a sharp angle.

The game also serves as somewhat of a homecoming for former Blackhawks Patrick Sharp and Johnny Oduya, who each received a nice ovation from the Chicago faithful prior to the opening faceoff.

Sharp is playing in the 800th game of his career tonight.
