Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks laid a giant goose egg last night against the Minnesota Wild, and yes I know that Marian Hossa scored his 499th career goal and the Hawks weren’t shut out last night on the road.
The giant zero I’m talking about is that the Hawks weren’t able to defeat the Wild once this season which means for the first time since the late 1930’s a team playing the Hawks 4 plus times in a season was able to pick up the win each time they played the Hawks.
I guess it’s a big deal for the Wild to do this to the Blackhawks. They needed the 2 points to separate themselves from the Colorado Avalanche in the race for the final Wild Card spot, and I suppose after getting beat by the Hawks for the past 3 years in the playoffs it’s a matter of revenge. But in the great scheme of things, it really doesn’t matter what happens in January, February or March, because it only really matters what happens when things get real in April and May.
The Hawks have a pretty easy schedule to finish the season, and it would have been nice to beat the Wild once, but after the first period the Hawks were missing Corey Crawford, Brent Seabrook, Duncan Keith, and Artem Anisimov from the lineup so it’s not like they were 100% last night. One thing you can count on be at full strength are this mornings links to kick off your Wednesday.
