Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks played the Boston Bruins twice this weekend, and in the end they both won on their home ice.
The good news was the fact that the Chicago Blackhawks played pretty well against one of the best teams in the NHL for two straight games.
They had third period leads in both games, and gave up those leads in both, but on Sunday they were able to score late in the third to salvage a split with Bruins.
The young kids are starting to really look good which is a really good sign moving forward and into next season. Hopefully they will be able to add Dylan Sikura to the mix of young players for next season.

Artem Anisimov also was able to notch his 20th goal of the season Sunday, making it 3 straight 20 goal seasons for Arty and every season he’s been with the Blackhawks.
The stat of the Hawks only winning 12 of the 35 games they have been without Corey Crawford just shows how valuable the Blackhawks goalie is to the franchise.
I expected the Hawks to get blown out in both games, but they held their own which is great building blocks for the franchise moving forward.
