Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Blues Monday

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s a very Blue Monday after the Chicago Blackhawks couldn’t beat St. Louis last night at the United Center.

The Chicago Blackhawks scored first, but the offense was pretty dormant for most of the game and when they did get shots off, most of the shots were blocked. The Blackhawks real problem was too many stupid penalties in the 2nd period and it came back to bite them.

The Western Conference playoff race is pretty crazy and the Blackhawk could almost face anyone in the first round with three games left which is quite amazing.  Here are some morning links to kick off your work week, hopefully it goes better than the game last night.
