The Blackhawks in Reflection.

The Blackhawks in Reflection.
When the Blackhawks look in the mirror, what do they see? Just what is this years Blackhawk’s roster made off? This season has seen more than its fair share of ups and downs, none more turbulent than this past Monday and Tuesday night. Some have praised SB while others sent profanities in his direction. I...

Like a swift punch in the face the Hawks lose in Boston

The Hawks had to give more last night than they should have had to given the way they started the game. Outplaying Detroit, they let the game get into OT. As a result, a tired Hawks team took the ice tonight. Not showing yet in the early minutes, although Boston did have the better of... Read more »

The Blackhawks defeat Detroit in OT and Bertuzzi makes a Chicken Poop play.

Im still recovering from a slight heart-attack, so bear with me here. This was a nail biter from glorious start to brutal 3rd and into the glorious overtime. Incase your still in the dark, the Hawks won 3-2 and leapfrogged the Ducks into 7th place for the time being. As it stands now, the Ducks... Read more »

"The play was great...except for the shooting"

Or so it was rumored Mrs. LIncoln said when things went bad at Ford’s theater. And so it was for this game. There really was’t much I can complain about. I mean, if this game is anywhere in the beginning or middle of the season, everyone is probably disappointed with the outcome but really not... Read more »

Misc.

Well, in spite of the fact we have a new reader seeking serious commentary (big stick tap for your service Ray), HH has said I could have a big keg bash right here on the site. Well, actually he didn’t say that at all, but when he said he was going out of town, it... Read more »

Things ended in the UC exactly like they should have, Hawks 4 - Panthers 0.

This game started and ended in just the way someone might expect from these two teams. Not wanting to repeat their last meeting, the Hawks established a quick tempo and put the pressure on Vokoun early. Though it might have taken half the game to get the first goal, the Hawks soon had 4 by... Read more »

The Blackhawks get the job done in Phoenix and pick up a vital 2 points.

The Blackhawks get the job done in Phoenix and pick up a vital 2 points.
A largely important game. Coming off an embarrassing loss, and given that Nashville won 2 games in a row, the 2 points this game offered were as important as they come. The Hawks showed how they felt about that by playing a great 1st period, and working hard throughout the game. A great shift by... Read more »

View from the Bench. The Blackhawks time off spells the need for a win tomorrow.

I am saving the Cap mumbo jumbo for the last paragraph. Reading about numbers hurts my head, and so I choose to look at other things. Things like the standings situation which is also futile given the ridiculous situation. A situation that allows the Hawks to go on an 8 game winning streak and gain... Read more »

Trouble In Texas. Blackhawks get beat up on by the Stars 5-0.

Trouble In Texas. Blackhawks get beat up on by the Stars 5-0.
It did not matter who was in net tonight for the Hawks, the puck was getting by. Not only the puck, but Dallas skaters had a nack for sneaking past the Hawk’s D-men as well. This was a brutal one to watch, and I tried to watch as little as possible. In the end it... Read more »

Blackhawks Roll Over the Sharks at Home for a 6-3 Win!

Now that was an exciting game. I spent more time on my feet than I have in a while at the United Center. Lots of reasons to celebrate with all the points handed out to Hawk’s players and the always important 2 points that shoved the Hawks into 4th place all alone, and only 2... Read more »
