(670 The Score) The Blackhawks activated center Artem Anisimov from injured reserve Monday ahead of an evening game against the Lightning.

Anisimov hasn’t played since Dec. 28 because of an upper-body injury. He has 13 goals and five assists in 36 games.

The Blackhawks could use his presence, as they’ve lost three of their past four games and sit five points behind the final wild-card spot that’s currently occupied by the Avalanche.
