Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- 2 Points Is 2 Points

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks  went on the road last night and picked up the victory and 2 points which was the task at hand.  They came out and played a very solid 2 goal lead in the first period, and then held on for dear life for the next two periods as the Hurricane Watch became a real live Category 2 storm but Corey Crawford would not fall down to the shots being fired at him.

There is always a question mark after a game like that though do you care that the Chicago Blackhawks looked almost lifeless for two periods which is one game removed from three whole periods of looking totally helpless in Dallas? Or do you take the 2 points, move on to Philly and be thankful that the team defense is playing at a Stanley Cup playoff level right now and the offense with all of Joel Quenneville’s shuffling will eventually find it’s way again without Patrick Kane in the lineup?

These questions may be answered on Wednesday night in the City of Brotherly Love or they may just linger all the way through to the end of the season, either way the Hawks need to keep picking up 2 points each night in the crazy tight Central Division race and Western Conference Playoff race.  Here are some morning links to kick off your Victory Tuesday.
