A Look into the Future: Toews and Kane

BREAKING: Patrick Kane is Acting his Age.
During the post-season as the news starts tapering off, it seems the most irrelevant non-stories become newsworthy.

The Phoenix Coyotes advanced to the second round for the first time in history which means no more scheduling our social lives around Blackhawks games.  At least until October. So what went wrong?

Snoozefest in Jersey: Devils Are the Most Boring Robbers...
Horns, Italian flags on the Jumbotron, and a score that remained locked at 1-1 til the end of regulation – no, not a soccer game – this was the scene last night in Jersey as the Devils hosted the Blackhawks for a game that got semi-interesting only in the last 10 minutes or so.

It's all the same, only the names will change.
It’s probably fair to say that last night’s Sam Gagner Show had all of our jaws on the floor. Ironic that the name “Gagner” is French for “Win” because Edmonton’s Sam Gagner was the big winner last night – making history for 8 points in a game, all at Chicago’s expense.  The Blackhawks looked almost as...
