Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Must Win Again

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It seems like we were in this same position about 2 weeks ago. The Chicago Blackhawks had split the first two game in Anaheim and then came home and lost a heart breaker in the third period.  That sure seems very familiar doesn’t it?

Well with the Chicago Blackhawks down 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Final, it sure makes tonight just as close as a must win as possible.  The Hawks still haven’t scored the first goal of the game, and they have had the lead in all three contests at some point, but they have only come away with one win so everything isn’t so bleak.

The Chicago Blackhawks need to jump on the Tampa Bay Lightning from the opening face-off and never let off the gas pedal and show them why they have won 2 Stanley Cups in 5 seasons.  The Chicago Blackhawks core seems to play better with their backs to the wall so I would expect an A plus effort from the boys tonight, and especially from their leaders Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane who have been held in check so far this series.

The Chicago Blackhawks need to tie the series up tonight, and while we are waiting for the puck to drop today, here are some morning links to kick off your Wednesday Gameday!
