Hossa Returns For Blackhawks

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks will have a full lineup Friday night when they host the San Jose Sharks and try to set an NHL record for the longest point streak from the start of a season.

The Blackhawks (13-0-3) have tied the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks’ mark of points in 16 straight games.

Coach Joel Quenneville says defenseman Brent Seabrook and forward Daniel Carcillo also are expected to play. Goalie Corey Crawford, who has sat out three games with an undisclosed upper-body injury, is available to back up Ray Emery.

Marian Hossa will be back after being hit in the back of the head by Vancouver forward Jannik Hansen on Tuesday. Hansen was suspended for a game by the NHL. Seabrook missed Tuesday’s game with a lower-body injury and Carcillo has sat out 15 games since suffering a knee injury in the season opener.
