Good Morning Blackhawks fans, I hope you survived one of the worst games of the year without three of the biggest stars watching from a far. The Blackhawks have one last outing to attend to tonight in Smashville before the real season starts presumably Thursday night somewhere. Here are some morning links to start your weekend if you are awake yet from the what you witnessed last night in the nation’s Capital.
