The Blackhawks return home on Sunday evening to face the Toronto Maple Leafs for the first time this season at 6 p.m. (TICKETS).
Chicago will wear special camoflauge jerseys during pregame warmups as part of the a full night of events in honor of Veterans Day, including approximately 20 Purple Heart recipients being recognized on-ice during the national anthem.

Chicago dropped a 3-2 shootout loss on Saturday night in Pittsburgh with Dominik Kubalik and Patrick Kane scoring within a 98-second span in the second period. Kane (6G, 11A) leads the team in scoring and is now riding a five-game point streak.
Toronto also dropped a 3-2 shootout game to a Pennsylvania team on Saturday night, falling at home to the Flyers. William Nylander, brother of Blackhawks forward Alex Nylander, had a goal and an assist in the win.
In two meetings last season, Chicago took three of a possible four points against the Maple Leafs. In the season opener on Oct. 7, it was a wild, back-and-forth affair as Toronto took a 7-6 overtime win with Kane and Auston Matthews trading goals - and celebrations. The Blackhawks picked up a 5-4 win in Toronto on March 13. Matthews led both teams with three goals and three assists in the two-game series.
Sunday will be the third of Chicago's 16 back-to-back games this season, and so far the second half of the double has gone the Blackhawks way. On Oct. 27, Chicago took a 5-1 win over the LA Kings following a 4-0 loss to Carolina the previous night and last Sunday, the team took a overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks less than 24 hours after falling to the same Kings in the extra frame.
