Our beloved Chicago Blackhawks are just little more than a month out from the playoffs and are, knock on wood, cruising.
However, while the ‘Hawks have been humming as of late, you’re only as strong as the weakest links in the chain. Thus, it’s critical that the entire Blackhawks roster start playing their best hockey to ramp up their confidence and ride the highest possible momentum heading into the post season.
True, it’s great to have some many Blackhawks players hitting their stride, but for me, if the following three ‘Hawks hit a hot streak before mid-April, I’d feel a lot better about their chances at once again raising Lord Stanley’s Cup.
#3 – Brent Seabrook
While there have been high points here and there over the past two years, by and large Brent Seabrook’s play as of late hasn’t been terrible, but certainly not at the level we know he’s capable of playing. There has been hope that for Seabs, after finally being reunited with Duncan Keith, but it still looks like he’s still trying to find his groove of a few years past. A strong blue-line special, pipe-ringing goal from Seabrook, preferably a game winner in sudden death, would likely go miles in helping Mr. Overtime get his mojo back.
