Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- County Work

DETROIT, MI - JANUARY 25: Anthony Duclair /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks are now on another break, and it appears they get more breaks than a county worker! 

Yes I will happily admit that all these breaks are driving me nuts! This season has been so choppy that’s I can see how teams can struggle to find a groove especially a team with a bunch of new, young and inexperienced kids on it like the Chicago Blackhawks.

At least this time the Hawks won heading into a break, they are now 3-8-1 heading into a break in the last three seasons.  It was nice to get 2 points and it was nice to have a stress free game that’s for sure.

The problem is the Hawks won’t be able to ride that momentum into their next game since they have almost an entire week off until Tuesday’s game the Predators in Nashville.

Of course everyone has the same disadvantage since this is the All-Star break and every team is on a break right now, but I sure would have liked to see what the Hawks could have done tonight instead of Tuesday night in Nashville.

I was tempted to go to this game, but since I’m 0-3 in Nashville I decided against it and will just watch from home.  The Hawks certainly need to put together some wins without any bad stretches if they realistically want to make the playoffs this year.  They also have to start playing better against the Central Division.

We still have a bunch of days to wait until that meeting, enjoy the All-Star weekend festivities!
