Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! This morning is a fun Sunday brunch date between the two best teams in the Western Conference. 

The Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild get the National TV spotlight this morning, and while some will be upset that the game is so early I say who cares it’s National TV.

For starters, I hope both teams put on a show for the NBC audience because so far this season all of their games have been up and own the ice affairs that have been a pleasure to watch.

Secondly, the Hawks need to find their offense that they have seemed to have lost since their 2nd bye week.  The Hawks have scored all of 2 goals in 2 games which is pretty strange since they were scoring 4 or more goals a game for 14 out of 15 games since the beginning of February.

Lastly, the Hawks will have their best defenders on the ice with Johnny Oduya and Niklas Hjalmarsson back in the lineup after sitting out the Hawks 4-2 defeat to Detroit on Friday. So if the Hawks are going to take over first place in the Central by the end of the season, they need to start with a victory today, and they will have their best lineup on the ice today as well.
