Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks take their game to Minnesota in a matchup against the top team in the Central Division. 

The Chicago Blackhawks only look up to one team in the Western Conference, and that is the team they will be facing tonight when they skate onto the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Minnesota tonight.

The Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks look to be the cream of the crop in the Central Division and the Western Conference this season, and the Hawks have won 6 out of 7 games including a couple of impressive 5-1 games sandwiched around their only loss in that timeframe which just happened to be their first game back from the bye week.

The Hawks are starting to get contributions from all 4 lines which makes them a very scary team for the rest of the Western Conference.  When all 12 forward are playing well, teams can’t load up all of their defensive strengths against Patrick Kane, Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov, and that makes the Chicago Blackhawks a very tough team to defeat.

This will not be an easy game for the Hawks to win even playing at a high level with the Wild holding a 18-6-5 record on home ice so don’t expect the Hawks just to skate into Minnesota and win because they are play good hockey.

Should be a fun game tonight, and here are some Chicago Blackhawks morning links to start your gameday.
