Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks won 4-1 last night in South Florida, and now things are starting to look like they are coming together for the team. 

The Chicago Blackhawks are now 4-1-1 in their last 6 games, and they have started to show some real chemistry which shouldn’t be too surprising since Joel Quenneville has kept his lines together during that stretch.  I know some coaches don’t think lines are a big deal, but if you look at the old days or even the Wayne Gretzky era lines stayed together for a long time.

Another nice thing to come out of last night’s game was Jonathan Toews having a 3 point night including a goal.  It was the kind of gritty puck luck goal that could get the Captain going on a hot streak if you ask me.  Goal scorers sometimes just need to see one go in even if it’s from batting it out of mid air.

It also was great to see Brandon Saad get on the scoresheet with his 8th goal of the season.  The top line really gave the Florida Panthers fits last night, and if Richard Panik could get any luck they would really be filling up the stat sheet!

The Chicago Blackhawks offense is averaging 4 goals a game over the past 6 while Corey Crawford continues to play great, so even though the Hawks were in last place coming into Saturday night’s contest, I still feel like everything’s coming together at the right time.
