Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Mr. 600

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks picked up a big Central Division win last night when they handed the Nashville Predators a 4-1 defeat at the United Center last night.   In a week when they play four straight against the Central Division, the Hawks are off to a good start picking up all 4 possible points in regulation.  They travel to Nashville to face the Predators in a home and home battle Thursday night so gaining more ground on the division will be at stake this week.

The Biggest storyline from the game had to be that Patrick Kane in one empty net goal extended his point streak to 23 games and picked up his 600th career point in the process.  Kane has always been close to a point a game player, but at the rate he’s scoring points this season when the season ends he could be past the point per game statistic.

As of Today here is his stat line for his career

Patrick Kane





Stanley Cups-3

Of course the Stanley Cups are the biggest accomplishment on his resume with the Hawks trying to figure out their lineup this season to possibly make a run at #4 this season.  One good thing is that the Hawks and coach Joel Quenneville may have finally settled on a top line winger in Teuvo Teravainen who’s scored in back to back games on the top line.

Another fun night last night at the United Center and here are some morning links to kick off your morning.
