Chicago Blackhawks Morning LInks- Commanding Lead

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks! Well that was one exciting 1-0 contest with an outstanding effort by Corey Crawford.  It seems like yesterday or a long time ago that Lemont Native Scott Darling was starting games against the Nashville Predators, but after the last two games Corey Crawford is beginning to regain his form that he showed before the tragic misstep at the concert.

The Chicago Blackhawks defense is also back after a couple suspect games against the Nashville Predators and a rough second period in Game #1 against the Minnesota Wild.  The Chicago Blackhawks shut down the Wild’s offense and then held on to the very end to secure the win and a commanding 3-0 lead.   Now will the Chicago Blackhawks be able to finish the Wild or will the series go back to Chicago on Saturday night?

Here are some morning links to kick off what has to be a very happy Victory Wednesday!
