Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Good Start To Weekend

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks finally picked up a Central Division victory this season, and doing it on the road in St. Louis made it even more special.  The Chicago Blackhawks even after their mediocre start to the season (which is their normal) would be in the playoffs if it started today.

The circus trip is looming in the background for the Chicago Blackhawks so picking up wins on the road will be vital for a successful November and moving up the Central Division standings not that this has ever really mattered to the Blackhawks the past few years.

The Chicago Blackhawks do play their final home game of the month against the Calgary Flames in what really needs to be a must win to give the team a weekend sweep and some momentum as they head out to the West coast for the rest of the month. Last nights win was a big step in the right direction and now it’s time to pick up a home win tonight at the United Center.  Here are some morning links to kick off your victory Sunday.
