Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Top Line, Final Answer

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Another 40 plus year old record was broken last night when Patrick Kane swatted a pass to Artemi Panarin in the final two minutes to increase his points streak to 22 games.  It was really great to see how excited Panarin was for Kane to get the record in front of the home crowd at the United Center.

The thing I was most excited about last night was the fact that Joel Quenneville put Teuvo Teravainen on  the top line with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa and low and behold having a talented winger on the top line actually worked, and it sounds like Coach Q will stick with it for more than one game if you read through his comments after the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 win.

I still think that Marko Dano would be the perfect compliment to Toews and Hossa, but if Q just won’t pull the trigger on that line combo keeping Teuvo with Hossa and Toews should be the next best thing.  Goals by Hossa and Teuvo should finally prove to Q that Teuvo needs a permanent home and skating next to a couple of future Hall of Famers should be the antidote for whatever Q felt was ailing Teuvo.  In the meantime here are some Victory Monday links to kick off your work week.
