The Chicago Blackhawks: Losing more than just a game in Anaheim.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Losing more than just a game in Anaheim.
This game started in the Hawks favor, even with the new line-combos in effect (because changing the lines has proven to be effective). Most notable of the first period for the Hawks, was the power-play goal scored by Kane. This goal seemed to ignite the Hawks a tad, and the excitement was obvious in Kane... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: Shutout in L.A.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Shutout in L.A.
There is little use to get into the specific minutes of this game. If you missed it, you were the lucky one. This was a pretty bad performance on many levels. 0-6 on the power-play, one a 5-on-3, out-shot pretty badly, defense lacking and running round, this Hawks game showed little focus, no inspiration, turnovers...

45 minutes of strong hockey not enough, Hawks lose to Stars 3-1

Well, that sucked. The story line that will lead in most places will include cliches about needing to play for sixty minutes, and not taking things for granted, etc, etc. In the simplest of terms, that is exactly what happened. The Hawks controlled a large chunk of this game, were extremely effective at backcheckig and... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: We will prevail. Hawks 2, Wings 1.

The Chicago Blackhawks: We will prevail. Hawks 2, Wings 1.
I have a bad case of dejavu. Is it just me, or did the Hawks win very similar games back-to-back in almost the exact same manner and in a way I have not seen them do very much throughout the year? Seriously, this is not the Blackhawks that I am familiar with this year, and... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: Don't stop believing.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Don't stop believing.
First of all, sorry about the late post. This is the first chance that I have had to sit down in front of a computer since watching the game. Let us start this one off with some congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks. They are officially out of their terrible slide, and they impressed me while making... Read more »

Trend officially started, Hawks win when Lepisto scores.

Trend officially started, Hawks win when Lepisto scores.
Lepisto scores along with five other supporting players to lead the Hawks to a pretty solid 6-1 victory, further proof Q needs to be fired for mismanaging Lepisto’s ice time. Course, since I recap less then Lepisto plays, maybe I shouldn’t crack wise. Anyway, since I already write way too much when I post, I’m... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: First road win in 2 months.

The Chicago Blackhawks: First road win in 2 months.
It only took 4 minutes to get a 3 goal lead, and only another 5 to make it 4. Essentially, 5 minutes of explosive hockey broke the Chicago Blackhawks 9 game winless streak. Not a perfect win, but a big win nonetheless and it came against the best team in the NHL in a building... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: From the Predators to the Rangers.

The Chicago Blackhawks: From the Predators to the Rangers.
Getting back to the Nashville game for a moment: It is highly doubtful that a team will beat the Predators when allowing 3 goals against in the game, and the Chicago Blackhawks did just that. But, the loss was not the most noticeable element to the game. Even though they failed again, for the 9th... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: A rant by a not so happy fan.

I have a rant to get out of me before I can settle down and actually give a valid recap to tonight’s game. The Hawks played good hockey which was nice to see, but I digress. I simply cannot take the unwillingness of announcers, and the administration to take ownership over this debacle in the... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks in trouble: The Sun-Times blame Stan Bowman (click here).

As most of my disgust and finger pointing has been at Q for almost 2 years now, some or even many out there would rather turn that finger towards the GM. It brings to light another element discussed only recently on this blog. I am talking about marketing. It might help to read the article... Read more »
