Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Nashville Predators last night to extend their winning streak to 8 games.  One of my earliest posts on Blackhawk Up was when the Hawks were on an 8 game losing streak and the title was Eight Is Enough, but this is a total 180 with the Hawks winning 8 straight games.

The winning streak gave Joel Quenneville career win number 782 which put him in a tie for second all-time in the NHL coaching standings.  He’s now tied with Al Arbour and now only looks up to Scotty Bowman.

The Hawks continue to find secondary scoring which was especially needed last night when Artem Anisimov fell under the weather and couldn’t make it to the ice for the game.  Without the second line at full strength it was Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa taking over the scoring last night, and in the end it was enough for the Hawks to secure a 3-2 victory.

The Hawks are flying up the leaderboard while most of the Central Division is in neutral which made Coach Q say they have adjusted their goals to winning the Central division.  Here are some morning links to kick off your Hump day.
