The 8 2014-2015 Blackhawks games you CAN’T miss

Guys… it’s ALMOST August. Which means it’s almost September, which means it’s almost October and time for hockey. Ok, that’s a bit of a stretch, but we’re pretty close to the point where there’s only one more month between us and the season starting. It can’t come soon enough. The World Cup is over, football...

Summer Round-up

Summer is a tough time for a hockey blogger. Sure, there’s the draft and free agency, but it’s nothing like the playoffs or even regular season. I don’t make a bowl of popcorn and sit down in front of the TV to watch it. So this post is going to be my take on what’s... Read more »

With the Hawks gone, who should you cheer for in the Final? Rangers or Kings?

I was hoping I wouldn’t have to write this post, but it’s something we unfortunately have to think about whenever the Blackhawks exit the playoffs. We’ve been pretty lucky that it’s been rare the last few years, but now it’s time once again to watch a Hawks-less final. So here’s your guide to who to... Read more »

Top 10 Best NHL Playoff Match-ups We Can Hope For

Round 1 of the NHL playoffs is always amazing, because there’s so much going on every day, and each game gets more important than the one before it. For the second game, there’s a huge difference between a series tied at 1-1 and one team with a 2-0 lead. Then the next game becomes even... Read more »

Sorting out the last week of the NHL season

Can you believe that this is the last week of the NHL regular season? I can almost taste the playoffs. The excitement of every game being so important. Staying up super late for multiple overtime West Coast games that don’t even start until 10:37pm my time… ah, it’s going to be great. By the way,... Read more »

Hawks lose to Penguins, Milbury still an idiot

I called it, again. A few weeks ago I made a list of games for the Blackhawks to watch out for. One I circled on the calendar was last night’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. I said that the Penguins would be bitter after their embarrassing blowout at soldier field in which they rarely registered... Read more »

Hawks fall in Standings with Loss to Aves

I called it on Monday. I said that this would be a big game. If only the Blackhawks would read my blog and pay attention to it, since I’m the obvious expert here (ha). Ok, maybe not. But sometimes it seems like there are some things that are such obvious answers on how to win... Read more »

The Lonesome Crowded West

It’s a very tense time to be a Hawks fan right now. That seems strange, because they are tied for 3rd in the league in points with 90. They’re 6-3-1 in their last ten games, and lead the league in goals scored. So why does it feel like every game is so important? Because the... Read more »

Trade Deadline Reaction

The trade deadline came and went yesterday afternoon, and the Hawks were very rarely mentioned on any major program. Feel free to say “who?” when I say that the only thing the Hawks did was to move prospect Brandon Pirri to the Flordia Panthers for some draft picks, and send a second-round draft pick to...

No Overhead Camera, more Hawks Stadium Series notes

Call me a traditionalist, but I absolutely can’t stand the overhead camera used in the outdoor games like the Stadium Series game at Soldier Field. I just can’t see! I’ll get to that in a minute, but first, let’s talk about the game. Snow Snow Snow The scene at Soldier Field on Saturday night had... Read more »
