Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- It’s Go Time

CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 23: Marian Hossa /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Normally the Chicago Blackhawks hit their stride with the circus trip, but without one this year the time for the Hawks to hit the accelerator is right now! 

Every season, the Chicago Blackhawks hit the Go button and they seemingly run off 9 out of 10 games and 12 out 14.  Normally it’s during the circus trip, but let’s hope that time is now.

The Chicago Blackhawks play three straight Central Divisional foes, and now is the time to get in the thick of things instead of looking at from the outside.

The thing I like about the Hawks current three game winning streak is that they had to fight tooth and nail for all 6 points.  If they had won all three games in a cakewalk I would have been pretty concerned moving forward.

The fact that the Hawks struggled means they know that every time they lace up the skates they are in a dogfight could help them in the long run.

If you remember when the Chicago Blackhawks were doing their exit interviews after the Predator debacle in the first round, Patrick Kane said he just expected to win every game because that’s what happened during the regular season.  Well, I would like them to go to the playoffs this season knowing they have to work their butts off to win each and every game they play in.

The Hawks travel to Winnipeg tonight, and they will need their A game with them if they are going to pick up 2 more points and extend their winning streak to 4 games,.

Here are some morning links to start your Thursday!
