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 »

Excellent Smithers, . . . . Excellent. Everything is coming up Milhouse for the Chicago Blackhawks it would seem. With the end of the regular season coming with yesterday’s super early Detroit game, the Hawks now know exactly where they stand and who they will be playing, and I have to say that it just...

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 »

A Telling Story in the Shots: Blackhawks 2, Red Wings 3 in OT.

A Telling Story in the Shots: Blackhawks 2, Red Wings 3 in OT.
Here are the shot totals for this game: In the 1st period Detroit had a whopping 21 shots on net, to the Chicago Blackhawks 4. The 2nd period was boring in comparison to the others, with both teams basically evening out. The 3rd showed the Hawks with 16 to the Wings 5, but the Hawks... Read more »

Bitter-Sweet: The Wings take the Blackhawks in OT.
Entertaining game I suppose. Lots of action and drama to keep the fans engaged. It’s just a shame how everything worked out. This is honestly one of the best all around defensive efforts that I have seen from the Blackhawks this year, but it still was not enough for 2 points. The result is a 3-way... Read more »

Sweet Home Chicago: The Blackhawks edge the Red Wings in Game 1.
I worked myself up into a tizzy before this game even started. Certain aspects about the Blackhawks game plan had me worried, and I even made some predictions in the pre-game post. Some ended up being scary right, but I was glad to see the most important one wrong. After watching this really close match... Read more »

Chicago Blackhawks v Detroit Red Wings.
It took a surprisingly long time to get to this game, and the time apart has only made us anticipate it more. Our resident Wings fan commented on our last post here at PowWow, and I responded. Here is my response which says a little about my perspective on coming into tonight’s big game: “Equally... Read more »

Centering an Injury Storm. Blackhawks leave the UC banged and bruised.

Centering an Injury Storm. Blackhawks leave the UC banged and bruised.
The Blackhawks and Wings met in a game which had a little of everything last night. The Hawks prevailed in the end, despite being down 3-1 behind a bunch of prospects from the Detroit system. A lack of zoned coverage the culprit for the mid-game deficit. But, even worse than coverage issues, the Hawks left last nights game... Read more »

Blackhawks - Wings Recap: Shootout loss in Detroit.

Blackhawks - Wings Recap: Shootout loss in Detroit.
The Hawks fell to Detroit early Sunday evening, battling to a 3-3 tie at the end of regulation and forcing a shootout. Unfortunately, a dazzling Bertuzzi shootout goal, and a follow up by Zetterberg were enough to surpass the 3 pucks that Brandon Pirri was able to put behind the goal line. Based on the earlier...

The Preds are out, but Detroit has not heard the fat lady sing.

Everyone was expecting the Wings to come out strong tonight, but I sure as hell didn’t expect this lopsided of a match. Niemi was forced to make 43 saves on the night and almost kept the Wings to goose eggs until late in the 3rd. On the flip side of the rink, Howard only needed... Read more »
