Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Double Down
By Keith Schultz
Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! If you stayed up for the Chicago Blackhawks loss to the Vegas Golden Knights last night, Hope you’re coffee is very strong this morning!
It’s been a long time since the Chicago Blackhawks have been on this bad of a run, It was actually in the first year I started with Blackhawk Up, and I wrote a post about their losing streak then it was called Eight is Enough
Well seven is enough right now if you ask me, and even then it probably doesn’t matter since there really isn’t enough games left on the schedule for the Hawks to get back into the playoff race. The biggest reason why the Blackhawks continue to lose games is pretty evident last night, and that is they are playing minor league goalies this year while waiting for Corey Crawford to return from injury.
With the playoffs basically out of reach, the Chicago Blackhawks should just give Crawford a pass on the rest of the season and return healthy for the 2018-2019 season since this season is apparently a bust.

When the Chicago Blackhawks won opening night 10-1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins I would have never in a million years imagined a scenario where the Hawks weren’t in the playoffs this year, but that’s where we are at with 57 games played in the season. Seven straight losses and no hope in sight except trying to see what the Blackhawks lottery chances are this year.
