Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The season is starting to look like a total bust after another home loss on Tuesday night, but Patrick Kane says all it takes is one win to start building some momentum.
The Chicago Blackhawks streak of 9 straight seasons making the playoffs looks to be in a whole lot of jeopardy after losing back to back games to the Calgary Flames. I’m the first to admit after they beat the Nashville Predators the first game after the All-Star Break I thought it was all systems go for the Chicago Blackhawks, but it’s becoming more and more apparent something big is going to have to change if the Hawks are going to make the playoffs.
The Chicago Blackhawks have to find a sense of urgency or some desperation in their game if they are even going to claw back into having a shot at the playoffs. It’s been so odd seeing them score first game after game and never to be able to hold on to the leads.

They really seem to miss Corey Crawford who could come up with the big save when the Hawks needed it most. I’m not sure what the Hawks and Joel Quenneville are doing with Jeff Glass starting over Anton Forsberg, but it seems like the more talented goalie is spending way too much time on the bench. I mean Jeff Glass is a real nice story, but nice stories don’t win hockey games.
The Blackhawks need to find a way, anyway possible, to get a win tonight, and then maybe just maybe one win can lead to more wins.
