Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Berube Berube

CHICAGO, IL - FEBRUARY 23: J.F. Berube /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks won their third game in four chances last night, and they can thank J.F. Berube for the win last night. 

The Chicago Blackhawks season may have been a bit different if J.F. Berube would have been healthy when Corey Crawford went down to injury instead of the Blackhawks having to call up Jeff Glass.

Don’t get me wrong, the Glass story is really great for kids to realize what hard work and perseverance means in one’s life.  That being said, after a few games it was painfully obvious why Glass has spent the majority of his life in the minors.

Berube stopped 42 shots last night in his first career win with the Chicago Blackhawks and he came close to becoming the first Blackhawks goalie to debut with a shutout since Patrick Lalime  did it back in 2007.

The Chicago Blackhawks of course of a glimmer of hope for the Stanley Cup playoffs, but there are sure a lot of rumors out there that the Blackhawks will be sellers at the trade deadline.  The win seems too little too late so you will continue to hear people wanting to tank instead of win.  Winning is still the best thing to me, and thanks to Berube’s effort last night the Hawks are starting to play a bit better.
