Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are on another long break from the NHL schedule this weekend, but they will be back on the ice this Wednesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning who have been playing some out of this world hockey. 

The Tampa Bay Lightning are 15-3-2 after 20 games while the Blackhawks are 10-8-2 through their first 20 games. The Lightning have scored 80 goals while the Blackhawks have scored 61 (don’t forget 10 were in Game #1)

The Lightning currently have a +28 Goal Differential while the Blackhawk maintain a +8 Goal Differential.

So the Hawks are in for a severe test when they hit the ice Tampa Bay on Wednesday night, and if they are daydreaming about Thanksgiving dinner they may be the ones with their net stuffed with a bunch of Lightning goals.

The good thing is that the Blackhawks defense looked a little bit tighter than usual the past couple of game which will be needed when they face such a prolific scoring team on Wednesday night.

This will be a Nationally televised game on NBCSN Wednesday night so I hope that the Blackhawks are rested up and ready to make it a 3 game winning streak instead of getting embarrassed the night before Thanksgiving.

The Chicago Blackhawks have their worked cut out for them, the question is will they bring their A Game to Tampa on Wednesday!
