Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Back Home

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! After a very rough road trip where the Blackhawks scored all of 3 goals on their way to 2 points, the good guys are back at the United Center and they need to take advantage of the home cooking and pick up 2 points tonight.

The Western Conference keeps getting tighter and tighter with everyone above and below the Chicago Blackhawks in the standings keep winning games no matter who the opponent is, just look at the Winnipeg Jets beating the Montreal Canadiens last night.

The Chicago Blackhawks had their shot to catch the Nashville Predators while they were struggling, but they just couldn’t beat the teams that they should have beaten, see Philadelphia Flyers for one, and now they are in a dog fight just to stay out of the Wild Card spots.  A few goals tonight wouldn’t hurt either and an offense that is struggling needs to finds it’s way starting tonight. Here are some morning links to kick off your Friday.
