The Blackhawks are 5-5-0 in the last 10.

The Blackhawks are 5-5-0 in the last 10.
The Blackhawks suffered their 5th loss last night to the Anaheim Ducks. Coming into the game without the services of Hossa and Sharp again, I didn’t really have too much hope for a win. I mean, from the lips of Q himself, both wingers were ready, the team is just taking it easy. From what... Read more »

Jarome Iginla, talk amongst yourselves.

Jarome Iginla, talk amongst yourselves.
I guess we have to talk about it. With the small but inviting possibility of Iggy playing in a Blackhawks uniform, our eyes were just way to focused on this move not to talk about it. By the end, it seemed like a long shot, with Boston appearing to be the leading offer, but I... Read more »

And the Prize for Best Forecheck Goes to.......
The Chicago Blackhawks suffered in a few areas last night against the LA Kings. In the end, the right team won the game behind a barrage of constant pressure. The Hawks had the lead 3 times, but also gave up 2 late goals to a team who had just gone 150 minutes without a goal,... Read more »

Blackhawk Update.

Blackhawk Update.
Following a hard loss in Anaheim, the Chicago Blackhawks have had some time to rest, practice and look back on the past couple of weeks. Most importantly, to areas which did not work out so great for the #1 team in the league. With updates coming in that Hossa will not skate against the Kings... Read more »

Ha-Ha, Red Wings 5, Ducks 1

Well, since we got a couple of days off, I thought I’d revel in some schadenfreude at the Ducks expense. Just as you’d expect, Selanne scored his usual annoying goal, but from that point on, the Ducks would give up a hattie to known offensive powerhouse Justin Abdelkador, as well as a PP goal to...

The Blackhawks Learn a Lesson in Anaheim.

The Blackhawks Learn a Lesson in Anaheim.
I thought I was going to write a celebration article about how the Blackhawks defeated the Ducks and took their rightful place on top of the NHL. Unfortunately, in de-ja-vu fashion, the Hawks gave this one up with 5 minutes to spare, just as they did the last time these 2 teams met. Hopefully, the... Read more »

"But this one right here, this was my dream, my wish, and it didn't come true. So, I'm taking it back, I'm taking them all back"

"But this one right here, this was my dream, my wish, and it didn't come true. So, I'm taking it back, I'm taking them all back"
Back-to-back convincing wins have placed the Blackhawks back on top of the NHL throne. You might have noticed that the Hawks had fallen to the Ducks in NHL Power Rankings, even though this was IMO, a bit unwarranted. I understand completely what the Ducks are accomplishing here, but the Hawks are currently holding a plus... Read more »

Big Win in a little Big Season.

Big Win in a little Big Season.
The Chicago Blackhawks bounced back with a mighty roar last night in Dallas. Posting 8 goals in 60 minutes with a dominating performance worthy of all the praise it will get. The Hawks said something last night about their very short fall from grace in the past week or so. Among talks about how many... Read more »

Urgency

Well, today’s the day we get to watch the Hawks and start our second half of the season dissection of every game to see whether the Hawks are real contenders or just a decent team that needs to make a big trade to have any hope of winning. For my two cents, unless the team... Read more »

4 periods of Bad Hockey by the Blackhawks

4 periods of Bad Hockey by the Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks are served with their second loss of the year after playing 4 periods of terrible hockey. An offensive surge through 2 periods just wasn’t enough to get the Hawks back on the winning track as both Emery and Crawford allow 3 goals each against Edmonton. The Blackhawks already have their concerns with... Read more »
