Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Home Sweet Home!

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks return home after what seems like another extended break.  The Chicago Blackhawks did what they were supposed to do and split the first two games in Tampa, yet since the Blackhawks lost the last game the high after the split doesn’t seem to be as high as it was after Game #1.

The media couldn’t let go of the stat from Game #2 that the Tampa Bay Lightning hadn’t lost a Game #2 in the playoff this year, well the Game #3 stat should be that the Chicago Blackhawks are 5-0 following a defeat in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  The one true thing about NHL playoffs is there really is no carry over of momentum from the previous game, so it will be up to the Blackhawks to shake off the defeat like they have all playoffs long and grab a 2-1 series lead tonight.

The United Center has been a very tough place for teams to win in the playoffs during the Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane era and they will be counting on the Madhouse on Madison home crowd to give them the boost tonight.  Here are some morning links to kick off your work week and game day.
