Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Working Overtime

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans if you are awake yet! Nothing like another triple overtime game to get the middle of the work week to give you a great big yawn all day.  If you stayed up last night you got to witness history as the Chicago Blackhawks played their longest overtime game in franchise history.

The Chicago Blackhawks look dominate, then shaky, then dominate, then shaky, then dominate, then exhausted, then a winner.  The Chicago Blackhawks overtime games are never for a loss of excitement, anxiety, and shear terror, but somehow they seem to get the better end of the outcome more times than not and especially in the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks did what they set out to in getting a split in the opening two games even if it took 50 plus minutes of overtime to achieve their goal. Now it’s time to defend the United Center ice when they arrive home finally at the United Center, a place that it seems the Hawks haven’t played at for weeks now with the long delay between the Wild and Ducks series.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Wednesday Nap Day!
