Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Missed Opportunites

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks had plenty of opportunities in Game #3 to take a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, but they couldn’t capitalize on anything given or earned and now they find themselves in a 2-1 hole in the Stanley Cup Final.

Granted, it’s not the end of the world, the Chicago Blackhawks were down 2-1 to the Boston Bruins and won three straight to win the series, but this one sure does sting.  The Chicago Blackhawks had the game in their grasps after Brandon Saad scored in the third period to give the Hawks a 2-1 lead, but they gave up the tying goal 13 seconds later.  The Chicago Blackhawks have been plagued by quick strike goal and multiple goals and it looks to be finally catching up to them.

The Tampa Lightning look to be the faster team as the game went along after the Chicago Blackhawks blitzed them in the first period but only left the period tied 1-1.

The Chicago Blackhawk now face their 2nd straight must win Game #4 in a series, and now here is some morning links to kick off your Tuesday morning.
