Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- It’s December!

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s finally December! A month that most adults that have to shovel sidewalks hate, but the month all kids love to see on the calendar because of somebody’s arrival.

The month of December for the Chicago Blackhawks also has been something to look forward to during the Joel Quenneville/Toews/Kane era with the Blackhawks rolling off a lot of wins with the help of a bunch of home games at the United Center.

As much as the month of November is about the circus trip, the month of December is about home ice after returning from the circus trip, and with the Blackhawks usually having won a bunch of games on the road the momentum usually seeps over into December and a month that the Chicago Blackhawks actually make a move up the standings in the Central Division,

The Chicago Blackhawks play 7 of their next 9 games in front of their home crowd at the United Center, a place where they have won pretty regularly this season going 8-2-1.  It starts tonight with a home tilt against a Central Division rival in the Minnesota Wild so as usual a big 2 points are on the line tonight.  Here are some morning links to kick off your Gameday!
