Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Time To Start Another One

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks were shut out on Tuesday night, but never fear another streak can get started Friday night in Calgary.

The Chicago Blackhawks apparently didn’t realize that the circus trip started on Tuesday night, because they might have shown up for the game but that wasn’t the team we watched go undefeated for much of last month.

The best part of the regular season in any professional sport is that it’s only one game in a very long season, and now the Hawks are on their longest road trip of the season due to the circus so the trip just keeps on rolling.

The one thing about the Hawks in previous seasons was the Circus trip would be the jump start to the season as they normally flounder around during the first month of the season.

This season, they didn’t struggle but actually are sitting in first place after winning 7 straight games and picking up points in other games.  So heading out on the circus trip one had to wonder what this team would do away from the United Center.

Well game one was an epic fail losing to the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 snapping the Hawks streak of scoring at least 2 goals in every game this season.  That being said, it’s on to Calgary and the next streak can start on Friday night.
