Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks never say die, and that’s something you have to really love about being a fan of the Chicago Blackhawks in this era. The Chicago Blackhawks fought back from a 3-1 deficit to force a Game #7 and that’s what you have to love about the team.

Sure, there will be plenty of questions to ask during the offseason especially when you look back at the defense which was a sore spot all season long even though Coach Joel Quenneville continued to believe it was an ok unit.  The loss of Johnny Oduya could possibly be the biggest loss the team had this year or the fact that they couldn’t figure out how to use Trevor Daley before they traded for players they had no use for in Rob Scuderi and Christian Ehrhoff.

Of course the one other player you can look at is Jonathan Toews.  He never did break through and he had a pretty rough regular season on scoresheet in a season that his partner in crime Patrick Kane never stopped hitting the scoresheet.  Don’t get me wrong, I believe that Toews is the best Captain in the NHL, but not getting his offense going at all in the series really hurt the most, even when he was teamed up with Kane.

The season is over so this will be one tough spring to enjoy if you’re a Chicago Blackhawks fan.
