Sweet Home Chicago: The Blackhawks edge the Red Wings in Game 1.

Sweet Home Chicago: The Blackhawks edge the Red Wings in Game 1.
I worked myself up into a tizzy before this game even started. Certain aspects about the Blackhawks game plan had me worried, and I even made some predictions in the pre-game post. Some ended up being scary right, but I was glad to see the most important one wrong. After watching this really close match... Read more »

Chicago Blackhawks v Detroit Red Wings.

Chicago Blackhawks v Detroit Red Wings.
It took a surprisingly long time to get to this game, and the time apart has only made us anticipate it more. Our resident Wings fan commented on our last post here at PowWow, and I responded. Here is my response which says a little about my perspective on coming into tonight’s big game: “Equally... Read more »

A little confidence goes a long way: Chicago Blackhawks blanked against LA.

A little confidence goes a long way: Chicago Blackhawks blanked against LA.
The Hawks strolled on into the United Center on something of a winning streak. The Kings were riding high off their past few games at the changing of their coach. I guess it takes a Hawk to beat a Hawk, and Darryl Sutter has the Kings playing with some new found confidence. Their were plenty... Read more »

It's a 3-2 world. Blackhawks V Kings pregame

So said Darryl Sutter in an interview where he looked as emotionally excited as Henry Kissinger reading a horoscope out loud. The team is 2-0-1 since he took over, but remains in 11th place and at least one game out of a playoff spot. I dunno, if you read some LA articles, there seems to... Read more »

Stats Improving, Hawks 4 Jackets 1.

Sorry for the late wrap everyone and for what will probably be a bit of a jumbled review. For anyone who didn’t watch the game, Stalberg again had a huge game as the Hawks beat up on the Jackets. The win is not quite as dominant as the score suggests, but the things to be... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks at 35.

The Chicago Blackhawks at 35.
35 games into the 2011-12 season, the Blackhawks hold out on top of the standings looking down. They currently hold more points than any other team in the league, and have scored more goals than any other team as well. Sure, they have a few games in hand on a some other teams, but these...

Mehh: Chicago Blackhawks lay a beat-down on the Habs.

Mehh: Chicago Blackhawks lay a beat-down on the Habs.
As I mentioned in my little ditty last night before crashing into a bed only to awake unable to use a single muscle, the Hawks and Habs were making for a very boring lack-luster performance through the first half of play. You could count the amount of shots on your fingers and that was combined.... Read more »

Hawks Win 5-1.

Hawks Win 5-1.
What started out looking like a pretty boring game ended with the Hawks way on top of the pile. Neither teams seemed really interested in playing this game, most likely looking towards break, but you have to like the end result. I am really tired right now, so I will make you wait till tomorrow... Read more »

Pens 3 Hawks 2, win streak ends.

As I said on the pregame, I did not have a good feeling about this game. In that same pregame, FF made a spot on comment that the Hawks have trouble with a disciplined defensive strategy, and so it was. For two periods, the Pens had the Hawks pretty completely contained. If the three goals... Read more »

Power Up: Chicago Blackhawks rise in rankings and into Pittsburgh.

Power Up: Chicago Blackhawks rise in rankings and into Pittsburgh.
As it stands right now, the Hawks are the best team in the league. Their league leading points indicate it, no longer just at top because of games in hand, and now the Power Rankings say so too. The Chicago Blackhawks have taken over the top spot in ESPN’s weekly Power RankingsĀ . Honestly, it shocks... Read more »
