Blackhawks clinch Playoffs berth, will Patrick Sharp be back in time?
The Chicago Blackhawks became the first team in the West to clinch playoff berth, which is just a not that fancy way of saying that they’re in the playoffs, regardless of their performance from this point on.

Spring has sprung (sort of) in the great city of Chicago and now is as good time as ever to come out of hibernation… After a six game absence, Marian Hossa will return to the ice tonight vs. the St. Louis Blues.  “I felt good today so there’s no reason to wait longer,” said Hossa.... Read more »

End of Season Wrap: Takeaways from the Blackhawks Season 2011/12.

End of Season Wrap: Takeaways from the Blackhawks Season 2011/12.
I believe Jim Morrison penned a song once for times like these – this is the end. 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? In one word:  Goaltending.  ... Read more »

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. In typical... Read more »

Chicago Caps the Night Off with a Big Win at the Madhouse.
Another game, another 2 points.  At least that seems to be the new motto of the Blackhawks. The Washington Capitals made it extremely easy for the Hawks to dominate them and take a 3 point lead to ultimately win the game, 5-2.

The Madhouse was host to a game of back-and-forth last night as the Chicago Blackhawks were unable to top the Los Angeles Kings, scooping up a single point and losing in a shoot-out.

The highly speculated about Adam Burish and the boys from Dallas came to Chicago last night and gave the Blackhawks a nice helping of humble pie.

Unfortunately for them, the Dallas Stars were,... Read more »
