Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Overtime Once Again

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks went to overtime once again last night, and Marian Hossa put away the game winner for the extra point against the New Jersey Devils. 

The Chicago Blackhawks are a fun team to watch this season, and yet they do a lot of things that are quite frustrating so there never is a dull moment with this team so far this season.

For starters, they seem to be an extremely slow starting team.  They get behind routinely game in and game out.  I know they got a lead against the Florida Panthers, but most nights the Hawks are losing early and always have to dig themselves out from an early hole.

The next thing that happens is the Hawks come back with a vengeance either in the 2nd or 3rd period.  Last night, it was a 2nd period explosion with the Hawks dominating the play and scoring 3 times while taking a lead to the 2nd intermission. This part of the Hawks recipe sure is fun to watch each game.  They look like the Hawks of years past when they dominate the puck and put shot after shot on the opponent’s goal.

The Hawks of course are one of the best overtime teams that I can remember whether it’s regular season or postseason.  The Hawks just seem to find a way to win when it’s in extra time which is what they did  last night when Marian Hossa won it last night.

Next up for the Chicago Blackhawks is trip to Philly on Saturday.  In the meantime, here are some morning links to start your Friday morning.
