Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Road Trip
By Keith Schultz
Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! After getting shut out for two consecutive games, the Chicago Blackhawks are off to Nashville to see if they can make a comeback in this series.
The Chicago Blackhawks have a do or die game tonight in Nashville, and their season is on the line so let’s hope we see a different effort tonight.
I would say it would be nice if the Chicago Blackhawks score first in a game, but they haven’t been able to score at all yet in the series, so getting one past Pekka Rinne tonight would be a very good start. That would at least open up the ice a little bit, and not let the Preds just line up 4 across the blue line and just play muck up the neutral zone defense.
The Chicago Blackhawks youth do need to step up, because they all have been totally outplayed in the first two games of the series, and Ryan Hartman showed a whole lot of frustration at the end of Game #2.
The other player that really needs to step up is Johnny Oduya who may not be 100% or Father time is just winning the battle with #27. When the Chicago Blackhawks traded to get Oduya everyone expected the Big 4 reunited would mean another Cup, but no matter who Joel Quenneville pairs up with #27, Oduya has struggled.
