Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks played a very exciting, if you can call a scoreless game through regulation exciting, last week against the New York Rangers, and tonight they return to New York City to enact some revenge for their overtime loss last week. 

The Chicago Blackhawks are looking for revenge tonight in the Big Apple, but to me this was the most important thing I read yesterday on Twitter.

That’s right, two thirds of our core may be back for tonight’s game, and even if they aren’t suiting up for the contest, the fact that they are traveling means that their return should be sooner than later to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup.

The Chicago Blackhawks have struggled mightily at the face off dot without the Captain Jonathan Toews in the lineup, so the fact that he may return is huge for the Chicago Blackhawks sagging offense.

The one player that has surprisingly rose to the occasion without Jonathan Toews around has been Marian Hossa.  If you want to know the difference between this year and last year, and why he’s scored so many more goals than comparing the seasons, all you have to do is look at his goal from Sunday night.

Hossa took a shot from distance that found a way to go through Kari Lehtonen, and let’s be honest nothing like that was going in for Hossa last year.  In fact, Hossa had some incredible chances last year where he just got totally robbed. That’s why you continue to put shots on net, sometimes the shooting percentage turns around.

It’s on to New York for the Hawks, and hopefully they can leave Madison Square Garden with 2 points, so here are some morning links to start your morning.
