Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links: Zero Offense

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks went to Philly last night and put a giant  zero on the scoreboard last night. The Blackhawks should very little sense of urgency until the third period was almost over, and then the Chicago Blackhawks peppered the Philly goalie with no luck.

The good news in a season with 82 games there’s always a game right around the corner, and that next game is tonight against the Washington Capitals.  Of course playing the Capitals means a game against Barry Trotz which could be another offensively challenged game which is hard to watch on back to back nights.

The Chicago Blackhawks biggest issue is they only have one line producing and on a night when that lines chances get denied, the Blackhawks scoring is non-existent.  It’s hard to believe that a team that used to be so fun and exciting to watch on the offensive end can get shut out in the fourth game into the schedule after three days off.   Here are some morning links to kick off your Thursday morning.
