Toronto Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland makes his first return to Chicago, where he won two Stanley Cups with the Blackhawks. He scored the game-winning goal against the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final to clinch the Cup. Bolland was traded to Toronto about a week later during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft for salary cap purposes.
The last game between the two teams saw the Blackhawks top the Leafs 5-4 on Feb. 29, 2012 at the United Center. This is the first of two meetings between the teams this season; with the second meeting on Dec. 14 at Air Canada Centre.
