Good morning to spring ahead Sunday, so what is a great way to start the morning but to have an 11:30am game against the team that beat you 7-4 the day before.
Hope you had your morning coffee as you get ready for this morning’s game. One thing to know for sure is that Anthony Duclair will be out for a couple of weeks after the knee injury he sustained when he was hit by Brad Marchand.
With John Hayden back in the lineup, one would hope he tries to drop the gloves or at least looks to put a big hit on the Bruins instigator.
If you look at yesterday’s game it did have some positives with the Chicago Blackhawks youth showing a lot of promise in a season everyone wants to forget. Hayden scored a goal, and Matthew Highmore picked up his first NHL goal in the loss.
Of course, the special teams were a mess giving up 5 of the 7 goals which is very disappointing. The Chicago Blackhawks powerplay hasn’t been good for sometime, but when the penalty kill is struggling it really points to what a rough year it has been for the Blackhawks.

The Sunday morning games have been a real struggle for the Blackhawks recently with them never seeming to get the wake up call. A couple years ago the Bruins blew them out at the United Center on a Sunday morning game so let’s hope that kind of history doesn’t repeat itself.
It will say a lot of what’s in this team today on how they respond to the loss on the scoreboard and the loss of Anthony Duclair today.
