Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Sunday Matinee

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s Sunday in December which means a few things.  Kids are starting to countdown the days until Christmas, It’s a Chicago Bears Gameday and oh by the way it’s a matinee day for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Yes, a rare Sunday matinee for the Chicago Blackhawks which is awesome if you enjoy your sleep.  After playing on the West coast for the 2nd half of November it will be nice to have a game wrapped up before Sunday night primetime begins.

It reminds me of my youth back in the 80’s when my parents were very devout about church attending which also meant Wednesday night, so a few times during the season the Blackhawks would have a Sunday matinee game and this was the games that my parents liked getting tickets to.  I know we went a few times to watch the Hawks play the Boston Bruins so of course I couldn’t wait to hear the horn sound after every Denis Savard, Steve Larmer or Al Secord goal.

Back to the present, the Hawks are hosting the Winnipeg Jets who are right on their heels for the last wild card spot (yes, I check daily). The Jets were struggling until they won their last two including last nights win versus the Washington Capitals.  So a big game in the Central Division on this Sunday afternoon. Here are some morning links to kick off your morning.
