Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks will get a huge reality check on how bad they really are this weekend I fear when they faceoff against the Boston Bruins twice in 24 hours! 

It seems like a lifetime ago when the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins for the 2013 Stanley Cup with the greatest 17 seconds any of us will ever witness.

Those were the good old days when Jonathan Toews was the greatest Captain in the NHL, and Patrick Kane was magical anytime he stepped on the ice. AND, it was those teams that Stan Bowman hadn’t ruined quite yet.

Yes, it’s bash on Stan Bowman time and all the trades he made trying to win more Cups while the core was young. Apparently he saw the writing on the wall that the Chicago Blackhawks core would age rapidly when they got around the 30 year old mark!

So the Bruins have already gone through the rebuild with their core and have come back out looking like Stanley Cup Contenders this season which means this home and home series against the Chicago Blackhawks this weekend could get real ugly real fast!

Who knows the way this team has played they will lose in overtime both games, but I expect the Chicago Blackhawks poor goalie play to be exposed this weekend.

I can’t say I’m looking forward to it!
