Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Guess who’s Back? Yes, #81 is back! After what seemed like years stuck at career goal #491, Marian Hossa not only picked up goal #492, but he also picked up goal #493 just for fun. The Chicago Blackhawks veteran had been getting plenty pucks on net, but until last night none of them were finding the back of the net.
The Hawks offense hasn’t exactly been clicking this season so it’s not really a big shock that on the night that Hossa scores twice and Jonathan Toews scores that the Hawks put up 6 goals on the scoreboard and collect an easy victory over the red hot Colorado Avalanche.
The Hawks didn’t exactly come out of the box swinging, but after the first 5 minutes they dominated most of the contest and easily skated to a big win against a Central Divisional rival.
One unsung player from last night has to be Corey Crawford who withstood the Avalanche shooting gallery early in the first period, and even though he gave up a couple of goals, his strong play was the backbone of the victory. It was great to have Hossa back and here are some morning links to kick off you work week.
