Adam Burish Back In Action Tonight?

For those poor unfortunate souls who find themselves cheering for the Blackhawks, you'll be happy to know that Adam "Yes, I Have Some Captain In Me" Burish may be making his return from a tough knee injury tonight. He would be suiting up against fellow UW Alumni and former captain Davis Drewiske and the Los Angeles Kings. Coach Joel Quenneville has been quoted to say that "[Burish has] put himself ... in game shape and we're targeting Wednesday" (source). ESPN.com's player profile for Burish quotes Quenneville as saying he could play tonight, citing the official Blackhawks website, but I can't find the link and I've got to get to work.

As you may recall, he suffered a serious knee injury (torn ACL- ouch) back in September. Congratulations to Adam for coming such a relatively quick comeback.

EDIT: He's in the lineup tonight. I hope he gets a nice ovation from the United Center crowd.
