Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! If you know anything about me from reading Blackhawk Up the past four years it’s that I like history and milestones and before I write about what happened yesterday afternoon in the Blackhawks 6-4 victory, I’m actually hitting a milestone myself with this post being my 3,000 post since starting with Blackhawk Up in January 2012.  It’s been a real fun ride with the Chicago Blackhawks winning two Stanley Cups on my watch.

First off we got to witness the first 100 point season in Blackhawks history since 1994 when Jeremy Roenick scored 107 points.  Of course, Patrick Kane scored his 100th point in style by picking up his 2nd career regular season hat trick with both coming this season.   After going through a 10 game dry spell, one started to wonder if Kane could get to 100 points this season, but he finished strong on National TV which probably closed out his first Hart trophy season as well.

The one milestone that didn’t happen was Marian Hossa picking up his 5ooth goal even though he had his chances with the team force feeding him.  The other big milestone was Coach Joel Quenneville becoming the 2nd coach ever to hit the 800 career win mark.  Coach Q loves to win so you know this has to make him yell peanut butter or something like that.  A great day in Chicago yesterday, and now it’s time for some morning links to kick off your morning links
