Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are back in action tonight as they take on only the best team in the NHL right now the Tampa Bay Lightning. Hopefully they will bring their skates and not the clown shoes they brought to the United Center Saturday night. 

The Chicago Blackhawks are going to have to find something if they are going to make the playoffs this year. Sometimes all it takes is a big win that you weren’t expecting or a line to click that was just thrown together at a practice.

All I know is that something will have to change or this will go down as one of the more disappointing seasons I’ve ever witnessed with the Chicago Blackhawks.  It’s more disappointing because the core that used to be so young is now getting around 30 which means decline is already setting in for some and about to for others.

It used to be that the team could dig a hole very deep and somehow find a way to get out of it, but if you watched the game Saturday night it was almost embarrassing watching Anton Forsberg fumble a puck that led to a goal which ended any chance for a comeback.

All those years questioning how good Corey Crawford was is now starting to rear it’s ugly head. Sure every goalie gives up heartbreaking goals, but you knew Corey was a fighter and the next night he would comeback with a vengeance.  This year there is not fight, there are no comebacks. the only thing we can lean on is that we are only 46 games into the season so there is still time for a turnaround!

Will tonight be that night? I sure hope so!
