TCB, Hawks 4, Jets 1.

Well, that was a pretty dominant game and I never really felt that the Jets were in this one. Between take aways and outright puck possession, I think the Hawks had this one pretty well under control early on and basically never let up as the game wore on. No disrespect intended to the Jets,... 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 »

Hawks don't storm the keep, Kings win 3-1

Well, I think we finally saw the Kings team that a few of us here feared going into the playoffs. While I wouldn’t call it a dominant game by LA, they nonetheless played the exact game they wanted to and were able to execute their game plan. They got to the Hawks D quicker and... Read more »

Don't bring a knife to a gunfight, Wings 4 - Hawks 1

This write up is pretty simple, the Hawks got outplayed in just about every stat and got out coached. Undoubtedly, the two days off did the Wings a world of good and they were ready for this game. I thought the Hawks started off decent and they got the first goal. But in the second,... Read more »

Frolik and Sharp have a big night, Hawks win 5-2, lead series 2-0

Well, this looked like the game a lot of people probably expect for the series opener. Though there were periods of sloppy play by the Hawks, I don’t think the game was ever really much in question. From the start the forecheck was strong, the Hawks were finishing their hits and they were controlling the... Read more »

Hawks 4, Oilers 1. Moving on.

My biggest thought about this game tonight is that the Hawks took care of business and played like a team that looks ready for the playoffs. Every game has its moments of slop and bad turnovers, but by and large, I thought the Hawks played a perfect road game. Nothing fancy, though some goals were... Read more »

Misc.

Well, it’s about that time to throw stuff against the wall and see what sticks. For awhile now, I have been wanting to write something about Hossa. I don’t want to completely rip off today’s post at Hockey Buzz by John Jaeckal, but he hit on something that I have been feeling for awhile watching... Read more »

The Special Teams Help the Blackhawks in a Special Start to the Season.

The Special Teams Help the Blackhawks in a Special Start to the Season.
The Blackhawks now have 6 power-play goals on the season, after scoring 3 of them in last night’s odd contest with the Dallas Stars. These 3 goals have allowed the Hawks to progress to a 4-0 winning streak, which suggests some very positive things, given that the last time they started a season so well,... Read more »

Unconventional Hockey Serves the Blackhawks Well in Win against the Coyotes.

Unconventional Hockey Serves the Blackhawks Well in Win against the Coyotes.
In 2 days the Chicago Blackhawks have posted 11 goals against 2 elite goaltenders in the NHL. As was the case with the win in LA, the 6-4 win against the Phoenix Coyotes is exciting, starts to get our hopes up, shows a lot of promise for this current roster, and it is still too... Read more »

A Good Start to the Season, Blackhawks 5 - 2 over the Kings.

A Good Start to the Season, Blackhawks 5 - 2 over the Kings.
That was pretty much the best start you could have hoped for from the Hawks, and against the defending champions no less. Let’s try to not be overly analytical about this one, since  it was obvious true NHL hockey will take a little longer to get back to true form. Still, the Hawks won in... Read more »
