Well, if you like morning hockey you came to the right weekend as the Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins play a home and home matinee double header this weekend starting today in Boston!
If you want to stay positive that the Chicago Blackhawks can still win one more Stanley Cup Championship during the Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane era, look no further than this years Boston Bruins team that has rebuilt on the fly and are truly contenders this season.
The Boston Bruins had a couple of down years while still having Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, but they have reloaded and now are looking like a real threat to unseed the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference.
The Chicago Blackhawks on the other hand have a 0.03 chance to make the playoffs which means there still is a chance to the eternal optimist. Most of us have known for sometime now that this team didn’t have a chance especially when Corey Crawford mysteriously left us for the rest of the season.

Losing Crawford exposed all of the holes that were there, and when your stars don’t play like 10.5 million dollar stars the team just can’t be successful.
Today could be one of those games that you just shake your head and move on with your weekend plans, so it may be good that puck drop is at noon. You never know the Hawks kids could come to play and drag the veterans along with them!

My predictions were only right that the Chicago Blackhawks would score first and then trail in the third period, so I’m not proud about that one but it was correct!
Final Score Predictions
The Chicago Blackhawks don’t usually fair well in these early morning games on the weekend, so I’m really not expecting much. I will give them the first goal of the game once again, but they will give up 5 unanswered before they score one late for the 5-2 final.
Three Stars Predictions
#3 Star- Riley Nash 2 Assists
#2 Star- Patrick Kane- 2 Goals
#1 Star- Torey Krug– 1 goal 3 assists
