Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Chicago Bound

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Our favorite hockey team is finally Chicago bound and will be back on home ice at the United Center on Tuesday night after spending the last two weeks on the road during their annual circus trip.  The Hawks ended the trip with a very respectful 3-1-2 record and they took 8 out of a possible 12 points on their trip.

If you are looking at last season compared to this season the records are pretty close.  The Hawks are now 13-8-3 while last year they were 15-8-1 this time last year.  So now that the Chicago Blackhawks are heading back to the United Center they can take advantage of their home ice advantage that they have really maintained this season.  The Hawks are 8-2-1 this season while playing on home ice so with 7 out their next 9 games on United Center ice so it will be imperative that they continue to build on their good home record.

The festivities at the United Center start tomorrow night when they host the Minnesota Wild.  It’s the first time all year that the Chicago Blackhawks are third in the Central Division standings so I’m sure that they want to keep building on this gradual climb up the standings the Hawks have been on so tomorrow will be a big night on home ice back in Chicago.  Here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
