CHICAGO, IL - DECEMBER 17: Brent Seabrook /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks won their 5th straight game on Sunday night which ended a pretty good sports Sunday! 

Yes, I know this is a hockey blog, but used to write for the Chicago Bears FanSided site and I’m a fan of all Chicago sports team minus the White Sox (Sorry Dad).

Well after the Bears bad showing on Saturday, nothing could make Sunday better than watching Aaron Rodgers comeback all short with him throwing 3 picks and the Green Bay Packers losing!

When you follow the Packers loss with a very solid Chicago Blackhawks victory, it made for a pretty good Sunday.

The thing you have to like about the Chicago Blackhawks winning streak is that it’s not just smoke and mirrors.  The Blackhawks have been routinely outshooting their opponents, it’s just lately they have been getting some breaks and some timely goals.

Oh Patrick Kane is back doing his thing. It’s always fun watching him breakout of a dry spell.  He does go into some slumps each year, and then all of a sudden there is jump in his skates and he’s scoring goals and setting up highlight reel goals.

I wasn’t always the biggest Corey Crawford fan at the beginning, but after watching him win over and over again, he really is underappreciated.  Hopefully this is the season that the writers finally start giving him the recognition he deserves.

5 game winning streak puts the Hawks 2 points out of 3rd place in the Central Division.  It really is a weird season already!
