Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Pretty Sweep Weekend

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well, St. Louis tries to keep the red out, but in the end a large group of fans got to witness a Chicago Blackhawks victory in St. Louis followed up the next day by a blowout compliments of the Chicago Bears against the St. Louis Rams.  To finish off the weekend, the Chicago Blackhawks blitzed the Calgary Flames in the second period for a 4-1 victory and put the bow on a pretty sweet weekend.

It is amazing how much better the Chicago Blackhawks looked this weekend with old reliable #2 Duncan Keith back in the lineup.  Keith who missed 10 games looked back to normal this weekend doing Keith like things while jump starting the offense from the backend.  You truly don’t know how good you have until nice things are taken away.

The return of Michal Rozsival wasn’t as big of a deal, but you know what you are getting from him, and if he’s not hindered in the skating department then he will be just fine on the backend for the Chicago Blackhawks.

The main thing was the Hawks swept the weekend and picked up 4 important points in the standings before they head out west for their annual circus trip.  Here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
