Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! After Tuesday night’s dismal effort against the Dallas Stars there is one thing that is for certain, the end of the season can’t get here soon enough. In what one would think is the perfect time for the Hawks to be thriving, they are doing the opposite and that is playing some of the worst hockey we have seen in these parts in a long time.
It’s one thing to have a stinker every once in a while especially in an 82 game season, but the Hawks have really been feast or famine with way too many famines this season. They can just as easily get blown out as they are to run off 12 straight wins. It’s been a very strange season with the team finally acquiring a player to play along side Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa and things just haven’t clicked so far.
The thing is with 8 games left there is nowhere left to hide with the Nashville Predators closing in on the 3rd spot in the Central Division while the Hawks strive to find their game before the playoffs begin. I’m not ready to throw in the towel on the offseason because the Hawks have been left for dead before and survived, but this group has a lot of areas to get squared away before we are getting ready for another parade in Chicago. Here are some morning links to kick off your Thursday morning.
