Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans, The Chicago Blackhawks traveled to Florida during Spring Break, and like most people visiting Florida right now are leaving with a bit of a hangover after picking up only 1 point in 2 games. 

The Chicago Blackhawks have given up 12 goals in two game in the state of Florida. Let that sink in for a second.

Last night it looked like the Chicago Blackhawks were going to win in a cakewalk, but then the 2nd period happened, and the next thing you know the Hawks are skating away with a 5-4 loss  in overtime in Tampa.

There were some good things come out of last nights game, like Tomas Jurco picking up his first goal in a Chicago Blackhawks uniform, but the Hawks couldn’t hold on so we could talk about that instead everyone is talking about the Hawks collapse.

The good thing is that the Hawks still have an 8 point lead in the Central Division with 6 games left in the season.  The Hawks will have a hand in the standings in the Eastern Conference with their next three games against the Penguins, Blue Jackets, and Bruins.   The Hawks last 3 games are against teams in the west with one easy game against the Avalanche.

The Chicago Blackhawks are balancing coasting into the postseason while picking up enough points to win the Central, so games last night will happen, but the scary part is hopefully it won’t carry over into the playoffs.
