Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks travel to the city of Brotherly Love to faceoff against the Philadelphia Flyers for the 2nd time in 8 days.
The Chicago Blackhawks are in need of a couple of breaks, a couple of goals, and a whole lot more Corey Crawford saves tonight when they travel to Philly.
Before we talk any more about the game, let me tell you a story from the first time I visited Philly. There were a few things on my Philly bucket list when I visited my brother who lived there at the time. I wanted to see the Liberty Bell, I wanted to see Constitutional Hall, I wanted to go see the Rocky Steps, I wanted to go by the Franklin Museum where National Treasure was filmed, and most of all I wanted a Philly Cheese Steak.
So in the middle of doing all of these things we go to the real deal Philly Cheese Steak restaurant and I order my Cheese Steak with Cheez Whiz and man was I expecting a life changing experience, but to be honest I’ve never been more disappointed in my life with a cheese steak! I had been waiting for a real Philly and i was so upset. At least the crack in the Liberty bell looked legit!
The Chicago Blackhawks need to find their scoring touch once again, and Joel Quenneville has blended up a dandy with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on the same line. Will it finally be the blend that makes the Hawks score or will it be back to the drawing board for Coach Q after the game?
We will find out soon enough! In the Meantime here are some morning links to start your Thursday Gameday!
