Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Optimistic Again

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Blackhawks who have played to the level of their competition most of the season raised their level last night and they throttled the LA Kings putting them one point out of 2nd place in the Central Division.

So, it’s back to feeling cautiously optimistic about the Chicago Blackhawks after feeling blue about the good guys for the past week while the Blackhawks struggled both offensively and surprisingly defensively.  Now after back to back emotional wins it feels good to talk about the Blackhawks again, the question is will they make the push for 2nd place or will they settle for just being in the big dance?  One thing is for sure, it’s a whole lot more fun to watch the Hawks when pucks are finding the back of the net at the U.C. and Chelsea Dagger is blaring! Here are some morning links to kick off your Toewsday!
