Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links: Final Test

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans! It’s arrived quicker than the Western Conference Finals did, It’s Stanley Cup Final Time!! Game #1 for the first time in the Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane era will not be played at the United Center, but with this unit that’s A Ok!

The Chicago Blackhawks like their previous road series (Nashville, Anaheim) will be looking to split the opening two games before heading back to Chicago for Games #3 & #4.  The Chicago Blackhawks have been successful in splitting the opening games so far and sweeping Minnesota and have a 5-3 record on the road this Stanley Cup run so it doesn’t matter the Arena the Blackhawks will be ready to silence the crowd.

One thing that is highly annoying this playoff season has been the Keep out the Red Campaigns by both the Predators and now Lightning.  It’s annoying that it’s even a story and we have to constantly listen to every side of the story, and secondly it’s annoying because the NHL hasn’t stepped in and stopped it.  Let’s grow the game not try to squash it with pettiness.

Anyways it’s GAMEDAY!! Here are some morning links to kick off your Stanley Cup Final Game #1 Gameday!
