Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Big Apple Sweep

BY Fansided and Keith Schultz/FanSided via Blackhawk Up • December 16, 2016

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks traveled to the Big Apple this week and they won both games, and now they travel to St. Louis with 4 points in their pocket. 

The Chicago Blackhawks are the kings of the one goal game this season, with them picking up 2 more one goal wins on their New York City road trip.

The Hawks defeated the New York Rangers in a fast paced exciting 2-1 contest on Tuesday night, and they followed it up with a come from behind 5-4 victory against the News York Islanders in Brooklyn.

I’m not sure which win is more important or funner to watch. Being a kid from the 1980’s, I like high scoring hockey games, but I have to be honest the Rangers game felt like a playoff game, and as Jeremy Roenick and the NBCSN crew said after the game that it could be a Stanley Cup Final game.

The Chicago Blackhawks after their win against the Islanders are now the first team from the Western Conference to collect 20 victories on the season.  Joel Quenneville may be doing his best coaching job of his career getting all the young kids and his core playing just good enough on almost every night collecting wins.

The Chicago Blackhawks now travel to St. Louis on Saturday night to help build a bigger buffer between themselves and the 2nd place Blues.
