Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Busted

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well that game last night was a total bust.  The Colorado Avalanche were the faster, better team last night and didn’t look like the Chicago Blackhawks had an answer, and we are talking about the team that sits in the basement of the Central Division.

Of course, the game wasn’t just a bust, but Patrick Kane‘s streak came to an end after 26 games.  It’s only the third time all season that Patrick Kane hadn’t collected a point, and the Chicago Blackhawks are 0-3-0 in those 3 games that Kane hasn’t collected a point including last night’s disaster.

The Chicago Blackhawks are now back to the drawing board even though it could have just been one of those games you throw out a bad loss during an 82 game season.  The problem of course has been the same thing all season which is if the 2nd line isn’t scoring the Hawks are going to struggle to put pucks into the back of the net.

You can get all excited about nights when Brandon Mashinter scores, but the third and fourth lines need to be productive unlike last night when Bryan Bickell had two great chances to score and only could put it in Seymon Varlamov’s gut!

Here are some morning links to kick off your hump day.
