Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Do or Die

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s gameday and the first do or die game of the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs for the Chicago Blackhawks.  They have been in a hole before and been able to dig their way out of it, so with their collective backs to the wall will they be able to force a Game #7 tonight at the United Center.

This playoff run has been extremely peculiar with all of the three goal periods that the Chicago Blackhawks have allowed, and one would suggest that if they are to win and play in a Game #7 in Anaheim Saturday night that they must avoid a three goal period tonight.  The cause of the defensive lapses can be contributed to a host of reasons from goalies, to poor defensive play, but one thing is for sure it must stop tonight.

The history books are very king to this era’s Chicago Blackhawks team in Game #6’s, and the team talked about how they play their best hockey when there is no room for error, so expect to see the Chicago Blackhawks best effort of the season tonight in Game #6.  Here are some morning links to kick off your Do or Die Game day.
