Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- LimboLand

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Another 24 hours and still no schedule for the 2nd round matchup between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild. There are a lot of factors in play, including the Chicago Bulls who couldn’t finish off the Milwaukee Buck last night. The NHL didn’t announce the times after the Tampa Lightning forced a Game #7 by winning on the road at Joe Louis Arena. Who knows when the schedule is announced, but we know the team so the intrigue isn’t too large so look for a Thursday or Friday night Game #1.

The Chicago Blackhawks did make some changes in their lineups yesterday even though according to reports Joel Quenneville was crusty telling the differences.  Corey Crawford as expected will start Game #1, while Kris Versteeg shockingly was on the outside of the first four lines while Teuvo Teravainen was skating on the third line with Antoine Vermette and Patrick Sharp.  Here is some morning links to kick off your Tuesday morning.
