A Hard Team to Play Against.

A Hard Team to Play Against.
This game was over 12 seconds into it. With all of the talk about this most likely being the end of the streak, and how the Blues are going to be the tough competitor to tough for the Blackhawks to hold on for yet another win, you can’t mention this year’s Hawks without talking about...

We can do this all night long.

We can do this all night long.
Here is my best attempt at a short and sweet wrap on last night’s game and the energy currently surrounding the Chicago Blackhawks. I went into this game against the Oilers as a fan ready, and willing to accept a loss. After all, the Oilers are not the Hawks best friend in terms of wins.... Read more »

And now for something completely different.....Hawks win again

Well, I don’t feel like there is a ton to say about this game. It was a tight contest from start to finish and the Jackets made the Hawks work for this one. Both teams had some really good chances, both teams had some bad defensive breakdowns and both teams got saves from their goalies... Read more »

What Does It Mean?

What Does It Mean?
Just 17 games into this shortened season we already have a record setting year. It is last night’s win however, that gives me reason to feel so soft and cuddly about this team. Because, when the going got tough (meaning the Sharks really came out strong), and something bigger than just another win was on... Read more »

One Game for Hansen

One Game for Hansen
I wasn’t going to say anything, but with the reaction from the league, different articles around the net, and my brief conversation with One Team on the last post, I feel a little response is prudent. Please, go and check this article out from the Times. It is what finally energized me to respond. This... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks, Best Start Ever.

The Chicago Blackhawks, Best Start Ever.
Yes, the Blackhawks tied Anaheim for the best start in NHL history last night, and technically the Hawks are better, because they have 1 more point than the Ducks did in 06-07. They accomplished this feat in perfect fashion by overcoming our favorite team to watch lose, and boy was it an exciting match. This... Read more »

Still WINNING! The Blackhawks inch closer to record start.

Still WINNING! The Blackhawks inch closer to record start.
Dominant play out of the gate sent the Blackhawks to a 3-0 lead against the struggling Kings, which was fairly similar to the way things had gone the other night against the Sharks. It was so impressive that our “Hockey in America” announcers and analysts were left with their tongues hanging out of their mouths,... Read more »

Solid Hockey in Chicago

Solid Hockey in Chicago
Solid is the best word to describe the Blackhawks win over a struggling San Jose Sharks last night. Sure, they have some explosive talent on the front end, and they have what I consider to be the best defensive roster in the league, even with Seabrook in lala land. When it comes down to it,...

A Flat Homecoming for the Blackhawks

A Flat Homecoming for the Blackhawks
It is hard to come home after being gone so long and focus on the right things. Distractions are everywhere, especially when one has been gone long enough to let distractions build. Maybe that’s why the homecoming performance last night was so flat. Yes, the Hawks picked up a point against a really tough team... Read more »

It's Not Easy Being Perfect.

It's Not Easy Being Perfect.
Does anyone recall the last time Crawford and the Blackhawks recorded a shutout? Me neither. The Hawks finished their ridiculous road trip in Nashville last night in top form, recording their 10th win, avoiding any losses in their regulation loss column, and they did it with a solid win. The type of win, against the... Read more »
