Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- The Road Ahead

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are about to head out on their annual circus trip and what ends up being the 2nd half of the month of November on the road.  There really is only one problem in the early part of the 2015-2016 season for the Chicago Blackhawks and the long road trip ahead.

The problem is their record on the road isn’t what they are used to in years past.  During previous seasons the Blackhawks were a very strong team on the road, but this season although it’s very early into the season has only brought a 2-5 record.  Of course most of those losses came without Duncan Keith in the lineup.

If your looking for a bright sign, the Chicago Blackhawks dominated the St. Louis Blues on the road Saturday night which was followed up by a road win against the Calgary Flames on Sunday.  The wins gave the Chicago Blackhawks a solid foundation before the 6 game West Coast road trip which in years past has been a springboard for the team to build up wins and move up the standings after slow starts.

The road trip is dead ahead, and so are this mornings links to kick off your Tuesday morning.
