Five NHL questions: Jarome Iginla returns to Calgary

A daily feature that asks the five biggest questions about today's NHL action. Will they be answered? (That doesn't count as one of the five questions.)

1. Will the Chicago Blackhawks seek retribution on Antoine Roussel?

Roussel had a hell of a game against the Blackhawks last week, which included a heavy scrap with Andrew Shaw and a penalty shot goal that culminated in a taunting celebration of the United Center crowd. According to Brandon Bollig, Roussel will have to answer for those actions:

So, we wanna know what this means.

2. How will Pavel Datsyuk perform in his return?

Datsyuk has missed seven games after taking an elbow to the chin. He returns to the Detroit Red Wings lineup on Tuesday night when they face the Florida Panthers.

3. What will Jarome Iginla's return to Calgary involve?

Iginla returns to Calgary for the first time since being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins at last year's deadline. Iginla is one of the most beloved players in the history of the Flames and is expected to get an amazing reception from the organization and their fans. Beyond that, what will Iginla's return entail? Will he produce any points? Will the Bruins win?

4. Will the Montreal Canadiens extend their 10 game point streak?

The Canadiens are on fire. The club is 9-0-1 in their last 10 and have won five straight. On Tuesday, they will host the Los Angeles Kings who have won three straight games.

5. Will the Islanders winless streak end?

The club has now gone 10 straight games without a win. Will that end against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday? San Jose is considered one of the best teams in the league but has lost three straight and is 2-2-0 against Metropolitan Division opponents this season.
