Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Time & A Half

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well, our you awake yet after last night’s triple overtime marathon last night.  Of course when the game starts late, it goes triple OT instead of say Sunday afternoon when the game starts at 2 in the afternoon, but it was fun watching it especially when Brent Seabrook scored the game winner.

Now the Chicago Blackhawks have a strangle hold on the series with a 3-1 series lead and have a chance to close out the series on Thursday night in Nashville which oh by the way I’ll be there.  This wasn’t a dominant effort on Thursday night by the Chicago Blackhawks, but they have the heart of a champion and know how to pull out close games when the stakes are the highest.

The other story has to be Scott Darling who put up another huge effort in net on Sunday through another deep overtime match.  Now it’s time for some morning links, sorry that they are a little later than usual we did need some sleep last night!!
