Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! After waiting for the Chicago Blackhawks season to begin, and watching them go 2-1 in their first week of action, we have hit a lull with the Chicago Blackhawks now having a couple days off.
The Chicago Blackhawks don’t play again until rivalry night Wednesday Night on NBCSN when they faceoff against the Philadelphia Flyers in the city of Brotherly Love.
With the extra practice time, maybe the coaching staff can run some auditions for the top line so they can stop running the auditions during the games. In three games so far this season, Teuvo Teravainen, Andrew Shaw, and Ryan Garbutt have all tried their craft playing along side Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa. Teuvo looked good with the future Hall of Famers, but the problem is no matter who plays their it’s killing the third line.
We already wrote about the third line this morning because they are the only consistency the Hawks have in the Artemi Panarin–Artem Anisimov–Patrick Kane line. Good thing there is a lot of off days early in the season, so the Hawks can practice on cohesiveness within the other three lines.
The Hawks may have a couple days off, but we don’t so here are some morning links to kick off your morning.
