Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Monday Morning Toast

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! In the latest version of what we can call Artemi Panarin, we chose a Monday morning Toast for the Breadman.  Panarin only scored twice and picked up an assist in the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers last night.

There is something special about the Patrick Kane, Artem Anisimov, Artemi Panarin line which has been far and away the best line for the Chicago Blackhawks early in the season.  Panarin got a well deserved promotion to the top line while Marian Hossa was out for a few games, but last night with the Breadman back with Kane and Anisimov they were back scoring goals and winning games.

The Chicago Blackhawks needed the victory last night, but one thing they really need is some production from the other lines before teams start stacking all their checking lines and top defenseman up against Kane and the Breadman.  Jonathan Toews went on a quick run of goals, but they need that top line to become more consistent in the long run which probably will begin when Joel Quenneville gets more consistent with the other wing on that top line.

Here are some morning links to kick off your Victory Monday.
