Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans and Happy Easter. I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend, and this evening Blackhawks fans will hopefully be enjoying their Easter Weekend with a win over the St. Louis Blues which will leapfrog them past their rivals in the Central Division standings.
The Chicago Blackhawks regular season has been a roller coaster ride of fun and frustration. They have been really good at times and surprisingly really bad at times (getting shut out 8 times this season). Even with all the ups and downs the Hawks have clinched a playoff spot, another 100 point season, and are now looking for at least 2nd place in the division and home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
It was the best of times it was… come on it’s the best of times being a Chicago Blackhawks fan. You never know what special thing Jonathan Toews is going to do and the Blackhawks are great at exciting finishes, but either way let’s beat the Blues today. Here are some morning links to kick off your Gameday.
