After dropping Games 2 and 3, Joel Quenneville will insert Kimmo Timonen into the lineup for tonight’s matchup against the Lightning (8:00 PM, NBCSN).
Timonen has been a healthy scratch since Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Ducks.
I’m guessing defensive pairings will be: Keith-Hjalmarsson Timonen-Seabrook Oduya-Van Riemsdyk

When Kimmo hits the ice, his name will be eligible to be engraved on the Stanley Cup if the Blackhawks can come back from this 2-1 series deficit.
Kimmo Timonen: “I’m really excited. I’m obviously going to trust my experience and instincts, try to help the team as good as I can. It feels great.”
