Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!  There’s two things that seem to happen this time of year for the Chicago Blackhawks, 1. The Chicago Blackhawks go into a funk and struggle to win games even though they have a bunch of games at home, and 2. the Chicago Blackhawks seem to lose one of their better players to injury for an extended period of time.

Marian Hossa was injured in the game against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night, and although Joel Quenneville said that Hossa won’t be out for “weeks” he was still out long enough to be placed on IR.  The Chicago Blackhawks recalled Vincent Hinostroza from Rockford to replace the Chicago Blackhawks star while he’s out with a lower body injury.

One thing about the call up means that Marko Dano is not as close to being ready which is what we all pretty much believed when the Brandon Saad trade happened.  Hinostroza looked pretty good in his brief look in Chicago earlier in the season and he’s done pretty good in Rockford as well.

It will be interesting to see how Quenneville shuffles his lineup come tonight.  In the meantime here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
