Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- What Was That?

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well the Chicago Blackhawks little east coast trip didn’t go as planned that’s for sure.

First they get shut out by the Philadelphia Flyers and followed it up the next night with an even poorer showing and saving a third period goal from Viktor Svedberg they could have put up goose eggs two nights in a row.

The Blackhawks now have a day off before they get ot face a team giving up a ton of goals in the Columbus Blue Jackets which hopefully will straighten out their offense after a tough work week.

It’s extremely early into the season, but one thing is for sure and that is none of Joel Quenneville‘s juggling skills on lines are clicking right now. The Blackhawks have one consistent line and a bunch of other lines that are struggling.

The top line had Bryan Bickell with them for a stretch last night with no luck.  The last two nights haven’t been very fun to watch, and now it’s back to the drawing board for Coach Q’s line blender machine.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Friday morning.
