Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links-Cinco De Mayo

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Happy May 5th or Cinco De Mayo and oh by the way happy playoff Game day! The Chicago Blackhawks travel to Minnesota tonight to kick off Games 3 and 4 from what should be a very loud and enthusiastic Xcel Energy Place.  The Minnesota Wild tried to play fast in Game #1 and lost, and tried to trap and lull the Chicago Blackhawks in Game #2 and lost, so it will be interesting to see what the Game plan is for Coach Mike Yeo tonight on home ice in front of their own crowd.

One thing that has been a very pleasant sight has been the Chicago Blackhawks offense emerging in the 2nd round.  They have scored first in both games and they have made world beater Devan Dubnyk look pedestrian at times when they have gotten in close beating the stellar Minnesota Defense.  One of the keys tonight has to be score first and get the building out of the game early which won’t be easy, but if the Chicago Blackhawks stars keep playing at such a high clip there’s no reason not to expect more early goals from them in Game #2. Here are some morning links to kick off your Gameday.
