Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Week #2

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are now on Week #2 of their much talked about circus trip, and well they are not off to the start they had hoped for after three games.  After going 6-1 and 5-1 in their previous two circus trips, the 1-1-1 start to this years trip feels like almost a defeat at this point.

The worst part of the circus trip is having to stay up late especially when the Hawks serve up a stinker of a third period like they did in Vancouver late Saturday night.  It’s after midnight and sitting up watching a bad period is a lose lose situation.  The worst part of the whole thing is this week is the harder of the two weeks of the circus trip in my opinion.  They travel to Los Angeles to face the Kings and Anaheim Ducks with a Thanksgiving day feast in between.

The Chicago Blackhawks must find some scoring outside of the second line which is the only line left in tact by Joel Quenneville, and they need Corey Crawford to start playing at a higher level.  When the team fights all night to tie it up in the third, you can’t let two more in to lose it late.  Here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
