Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks faceoff against the Calgary Flames once again tonight, but there could be better news for the Blackhawks faithful coming soon..
Ok so the good news is the fact that Corey Crawford skated again yesterday which makes it three straight days for the Blackhawks #1 goalie. When asked if he’s going to get back to game action soon the answer was When it happens it happens.
So that’s not the most encouraging words out there, but you have to think that Crawford would be back in the net within the next couple of weeks since he’s already skating now.
The real issue with the Chicago Blackhawks goalie situation right now is the fact that Anton Forsberg has played very well the past couple of weeks, yet Joel Quenneville is starting Jeff Glass for the 2nd straight game. This is the thing that drives you nuts watching Joel Quenneville on the bench. There never is any chemistry built between anyone because the pieces are always moving.

If you want to know what chemistry is on a line look no further than the 2nd line the previous two seasons. It was Artem Anisimov centering Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin. They knew where everyone was supposed to go and they scored a ton of goals, and the biggest thing is Q never broke them up. Stop tinkering and stick with the lines for more than a period or two.
The Hawks need a win tonight, but they need Crawford back even more! Get well soon #50
