Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links-On The Road Again

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are now off to the Land of 10,000 lakes and a place the Hawks struggled a bit last year in the playoffs dropping Games #3 and #4 in Minnesota before Patrick Kane’s heroics to win Game #6.  Will the Chicago Blackhawks be able to win a game in Minnesota is the question this week and can the Hawks make this a short series or will the Wild hold home ice and make it a long series.

The Chicago Blackhawks were great on the road during the regular season and are 1-2 in the playoffs having won Game #1 or stole Game #1 thanks to Lemont Native Scott Darling’s relief role in Smashville.  The Blackhawks now can use their great road record to their benefit now.   Here is some morning links to kick off your work week.
