Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks host the Edmonton Oilers in an early afternoon matinee from the United Center.
Growing up I didn’t get to go to many Chicago Blackhawks games, but if I did go to one it was always a Sunday afternoon matinee game. These games bring back a lot of memories for me at the old Stadium.
The Hawks always seemed to be playing the Boston Bruins when we went, but there always was that special something that the Stadium always had when you arrived, and you couldn’t wait for the game to begin.
Well, today’s game isn’t much for nostalgia, but the Chicago Blackhawks must leave the United Center with 2 points when the game is over. The Hawks let 2 points slip through their fingers on Friday night when they gave up 2 third period goals to the Vegas Golden Knights and let the expansion teams escape with a 5-4 win over the good guys.

The Hawks defeated the Edmonton Oilers on their home ice on the Hawks long road trip, and they have got some life from their core players which is a good sign. They need a big effort today to stay within striking distance of a playoff spot.
