Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins have met twice this year, and the Blackhawks have won both contests by a combined score of 9-2. 

I must say it’s fun watching the Pittsburgh Penguins march to their locker rooms after they have been defeated soundly by the Chicago Blackhawks like they were last night in Pittsburgh.

The Chicago Blackhawks came out with a whole lot of purpose last night, and they easily skated away with a 5-1 victory.

The victory gave the Chicago Blackhawks a 9 point lead in the Central Division with 5 games left in the regular season.  The Minnesota Wild will have to be perfect the rest of the way, and the Blackhawks to lose the rest of the way for them to catch up.

The win gave the Hawks a franchise record amount of road wins in a season. The previous record was set in 2015 which ended pretty good for the Blackhawks when the playoffs ended.

It was good to see Tanner Kero look good on the 2nd line with Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin.  This gives coach Joel Quenneville lots of options which is a good thing when he turns on the blender during the playoffs.
