The Chicago Blackhawks have confirmed that defenseman Brent Seabrook will be back on the ice with the team when they take on the Phoenix Coyotes Tuesday night at the United Center. Seabrook said Monday that while he may be feeling almost 100% physically, mentally he's not yet ready to forgive former teammate James Wisniewski for the cheap shot that knocked him out of last Wednesday's game against Anaheim.

Seabrook and the Hawks are hoping to get back on track after going 1-2-2 in their last five games. Questions of toughness have plagued the team as of late, particularly after last Saturday's loss to the Coyotes, who came back to win in a shootout after being down 2-0 in the second period and 4-2 in third.

The Hawks have found an unlikely rival in Phoenix this year. The 'Yotes filed for bankruptcy over the summer, then saw Wayne Gretzky step down as coach last September, but despite all the turmoil, they've has proven to be a major contender in the Western conference. In fact, the two teams are currently tied atop the Western Conference standings with 97 points apiece

Tuesday night the Coyotes will shoot for their franchise-best 10th straight win, while the Hawks will look to prove that they have the killer instinct many feel they've been missing. If they want to stop the red hot Coyotes, Chicago will have to play all 60 minutes on defense and capitalize on their power play chances. If not, the team from the desert may be tops in the West when the night is over.
