Thursday night’s game between the Blackhawks and Stars marked the first game back in Chicago for Johnny Oduya and Patrick Sharp.

During the first period, Chicago showed a pair of videos on the scoreboard to pay tribute to the former Blackhawks, who were both pivotal members of multiple Stanley Cup championships.


Both players were given standing ovations by the home crowd as the videos played during timeouts.

Oduya played part of four seasons in Chicago before being allowed to walk in free agency due to cap restrictions.

The night was spoiled for Blackhawks fans by Patrick Eaves’ first-period hat trick, which propelled Dallas to a 4-1 win.
