Take Your Prize: Blackhawks 2 Time Stanley Cup Winners in 4 Years.
We have seen parts of this script before, but not with this twist. We have seen storybook moments revealed before our eyes throughout this season and playoffs, with amazing endings to the couple of series prior to this, but not like this one. We have been on the receiving end of a truly remarkable season... Read more »

One More Win! Blackhawks take the Series Lead over Bruins 3-2.

One More Win! Blackhawks take the Series Lead over Bruins 3-2.
The Blackhawks did exactly what they needed to do tonight to grab the series lead and take the driver seat in this series. They face a daunting task in Boston on Monday night, but they do it with control over the ice between these 2 mammoths. This game, although something of what I would call... Read more »

Reaching their Potential: The 2013 Chicago Blackhawks

Reaching their Potential: The 2013 Chicago Blackhawks
I have to admit, the Blackhawks not winning the Cup at this point would be okay with me. This season has been more about the Hawks living up to their abilities, meeting my and their own expectations of what this team can do, than it has winning. I wanted to watch my favorite team, the...

Blackhawks v Bruins: You Can't Handle the Truth!

Blackhawks v Bruins: You Can't Handle the Truth!
Holy Hockey Batman! What a ride that game was. I feel like that game was about 3 weeks long. A battle royale in which neither team would go quietly into the night, a dire game for the Hawks, a shooting gallery that helped to solidify this series as an epic that will be remembered forever....

I've been reading around the internet about the Blackhawks, and.......

So, it turns out that Q knew Hossa was supper questionable for the game, and he didn’t even get Ben Smith ready. Q knew that this was a likely scenario and he still made it look like he didn’t have any idea of how to work with it. There was a remark from him that... Read more »

Boston Bruins take the series lead 2-1: Warning, Rants to follow here.
The news coming into the game was that Stalberg was going to be added back to the lineup for the Blackhawks. After an interview with Stalberg, who held back his frustration and opinions of Q’s coaching style by showing no emotion at all, mentioning that Q doesn’t talk to the players very much, his teammates...

Blackhawks Fall in OT to Bruins: Even the Series.

Blackhawks Fall in OT to Bruins: Even the Series.
The Blackhawks began Saturday night with a furry of chances. Coming out of the gate as the far better team, following Wednesday night’s triple OT, it was looking like Boston had never recovered, and that the Hawks were on their way to a 2-0 lead in the series. Tuukka Rask, and a little bit of... Read more »

Hawks win fifth longest overtime game in cup history 4-3.

I can say without a doubt, that was just about the most incredible/nerve wracking game I have ever watched. Though I thought the Hawks were able to do exactly what they wanted to, I sort of felt the same way for the Bruins and felt that the Hawks kinda stole one. This is not to... Read more »

Stalberg most likely a scratch, is a bad start to this series.

Stalberg most likely a scratch, is a bad start to this series.
The decision makers of the Chicago Blackhawks seem uninterested in using the game plan that got them to the Finals. Most likely fueled by the mind of coach Q that is always looking to unnecessarily shake things up, Viktor Stalberg has been taken out of the lineup again. ”There’s a likelihood or probability it could happen,”...
