Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks easily swept the hated Detroit Red Wings this week with a 5-2 and 4-1 victories and only really lost one period out of the six in the two games.

It sure makes you wish that the Detroit Red Wings could still be in the Central Division for 5 games instead only 2 home and home games when facing the Eastern Conference since it seems so easy to beat the Wings these days.

The player that really should get a lot of attention and usually goes unnoticed is Corey Crawford. Braden Holtby is probably cruising to the Vezina Trophy this year, but Crawford should at least get some votes with his play this season.  Crawford was very good once again on Sunday evening picking up his 35th win of the season, and he has a sensational career record against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Chicago Blackhawks are still in a tie for first place with the Dallas Stars in the Central Division after both teams won on Sunday so the final 15 games should be pretty exciting race to the finish line.  Here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
