Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks didn’t play their best game of the year last night, but it was still good enough for a win and 2 points against the St. Louis Blues.  The Chicago Blackhawks are now 5 points clear of 2nd place in the Central Division and have one game left before their All-Star Break which if you have watched the last three games is highly needed.

The best part of last night is that even when they aren’t playing their best, the Chicago Blackhawks still shut out the St. Louis Blues which never gets old. You can do most of the credit  for the win and shut out to Corey Crawford who now leads the NHL with 7 shut outs. Crawford has been great for most of the season and he’s been extremely steady most nights with him setting his career high with those 7 shut outs.  He’s stopping the pucks he has too, and he’s making the incredible saves to preserve shut outs and victories.

It’s another victory Monday and it’s a win against the Blues which makes it feel even a little bit better this morning, and here’s some morning links to kick off your work week.
