Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks picked up a point last night when they blew a 2-0 lead last night in Tampa Bay and ended up losing 3-2 in overtime. 

First off, I want to say I hope you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving! I hope you get plenty of Turkey, Stuffing, and Pumpkin Pie today, and of course I hope the football games are good this afternoon.

Now back to the Chicago Blackhawks who of course played last night while I was working, so imagine my surprise when the updates on my phone kept coming up with Patrick Kane goals while facing the hottest team in the NHL right now.  So when the score said 2-0 after 1 period I was pretty excited while helping customers with their Thanksgiving dinners.

Then the dreadful goal early into the second period by the Lightning showed up on my alert, and then I knew it was going to be very difficult for the Chicago Blackhawks to get 2 points.  Sure, I’m a Chicago pessimist for every sports team, but this version of the Blackhawks hasn’t found the ability to hold down leads yet this season.

When the Lightning scored on their first shift in the third period, I really doubted the Hawks would even pick up a point honestly.  They did get the game to overtime which made feel like the night would end with a Kane hat trick, but it wasn’t meant to be and the Lightning scored in overtime to pick up the extra point.

I guess it’s a good thing that the Hawks were able to pick up a road point against the top team in the NHL, but it’s discouraging to not get a win when you’re up 2-0.
