Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s game day and the Chicago Blackhawks are back home  at the United Center to face-0ff against their hated Central Divisional rivals the St. Louis Blues.

The good news for the Hawks after their two game retreat to Florida is that they are back on home ice.  This isn’t a normal season for the Chicago Blackhawks with them winning way more than normal on home ice and losing more than normal on the road.  They also have rolled off 12 straight wins this month and lost two straight so it’s been all or nothing.

So when looking at the stats this would be a great season for the Hawks to wrap up home ice advantage unlike previous seasons when they could pick up wins as easily on the road as they do on home ice.  The Hawks are an ok 12-10-3 on the road, but at home in front of their fans they are a very impressive 20-5-1, and they look like a totally different team on home ice.

The Hawks will be again working on fitting in news pieces with the newly acquired Jiri Sekac in the lineup again tonight on a line with Richard Panik and Dennis Rasmussen. It always seems like the Hawks are working in someone new, something else that is new is the morning links and here they are to kick off your Sunday Morning.
