Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Let’s Take 2!

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s Gameday in Tampa Bay! The Chicago Blackhawks take to the ice in the 2nd game of the Stanley Cup Final from Amalie Arena and the main story from yesterday is that the Tampa Lightning are lights out in Game #2 this postseason.

The Chicago Blackhawks have stopped a lot of streaks and trends this season from Fredrick Anderson not losing on home ice (he did twice to Chicago) to beating the Tampa Lightning when they score first.  So, would it be a real shock if the Chicago Blackhawks ended the Lightning 3-0 record in Games #2 of the playoffs.

The Hawks will need a better start (haven’t we heard this before) in Game #2.   The Lightning came out flying in the first period, but they weren’t able to sustain it and after shutting it down, they couldn’t find that gear again.  Either way the Chicago Blackhawks need to hit the ice flying instead of being on their heels.

The Chicago Blackhawks take to the ice in just a few hours and in the meantime here are some morning links to kick off your Gameday!
