Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are off to Raleigh Carolina tonight to face the Hurricanes on the Eve of the teams well deserved All-Star break. The Chicago Blackhawks finished the month of January without losing at home and tonight will be looking to finish the month with only 2 road losses, either way the Hawks have been looking a little winded and heavy legged so the week off after tonight will be much needed.

The Chicago Blackhawks won a snooze fest on Sunday night against the St. Louis Blues if you throw out the sensational pass from Patrick Kane to Artemi Panarin for one major highlight of the game.  The real star of the game was Corey Crawford who put together his 7th shutout of the season has been on top of his game this season and when you start looking at why the Hawks won 12 straight you can point your answers to #50 for the streak and why the Chicago Blackhawks won Sunday night.

Crawford was an All-Star snub which is fine in my books since now he can have that chip on his shoulder for the rest of the season and carry it right into the playoffs.  So here are some morning links to kick off your gameday.
