Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- So It Begins

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Every year this happens like clockwork, and every year we talk about how this comes at the right time of the season when Coach Joel Quenneville has figured things out, and it’s a great time to build team chemistry.

Every year the Chicago Blackhawks go on their annual circus trip, and every year under Coach Q they have had successful trips.  This year would also be a great time for a successful trip by the Chicago Blackhawks. When you look in the standings of the Central Division, the Blackhawks can’t be leaving points on the table game in and game out if they hope to have a decent seed when April rolls around.

Of course it’s incredibly early into the season, but teams like the Dallas Stars are playing lights out hockey and are picking up 2 points nightly which is easily separating them from the rest of the pack in the Division. So no matter how well the circus trip goes the Chicago Blackhawks will be looking up as usual in the standings which is fine because they have always thrived during the playoffs not the regular season.

Here are some morning links on the morning of the first game of the circus trip.
