Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks did something they hadn’t done all season long on Saturday night, and that’s win a game after being down by 2 or more goals after the first period.  The comments on our Twitter feed was pretty depressing during the 1st intermission, but they sure did do a complete 180 after the Chicago Blackhawks blasted away for 3 goals in the 2nd period and in the end 5 unanswered goals.

The secret to the Hawks success for years has been their commitment to winning and in the end not being eliminated from the playoffs.  Their resolve they have is incredible and whether it’s from Jonathan Toews their leader and Captain or from the head coach Joel Quenneville doesn’t matter it’s almost legendary now.  The Hawks are 13-4 in elimination games during the Toews/Kane era and it’s something remarkable to behold.

So tonight the Chicago Blackhawks will be on the road again for Game #7 which is the same place they were in last years Western Conference Finals.  Jonathan Toews had a huge game, scoring twice in the first period as the Hawks steamrolled the Anaheim Ducks on their way to the Stanley Cup Final.

Jonathan Toews has four goals in Game #7’s and the Hawks record during the Toews/Kane era is 2-2 in Game #7’s.  The wait will be great all day, but later tonight it will be Game #7 from Scottrade Center.
