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...

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 »

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 »

The Blackhawks and Coyotes go to OT for the 5th straight game: But, this was different.

The Blackhawks and Coyotes go to OT for the 5th straight game: But, this was different.
Keeping in pattern with this series, the Chicago Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes went to overtime for the 5th straight game. For the 5th straight game, the Hawks started out strong and the Yotes absorbed, leads were blown and a turnover with out of position D-men gave the Yotes a lead, and in familiar fashion the...

The return of Jonathan Toews and what that means for the Blackhawks.

The return of Jonathan Toews and what that means for the Blackhawks.
It has been reported by many sources that Jonathan Toews has been skating consistently enough to get cleared for contact. Many of these sources, including Q himself, have stated the great possibility that Toews might play in the Thursday’s game against the Wild. This news has a lot of significance for the Blackhawk community. First... Read more »

Sweet Home Chicago: The Blackhawks edge the Red Wings in Game 1.

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 »

And another OT there shall be: Chicago Blackhawks best the Wild in shoot-out.

And another OT there shall be: Chicago Blackhawks best the Wild in shoot-out.
How come we can start off talking about how the new and great coaching in Minnesota right now can instill confidence, a composed system of play and motivation in a team, being maybe the best reason for that team’s success, but we seldom hear how the Hawks coaching might be worthy of critique for their...

Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness: Chicago Blackhawks earn a point.

Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness: Chicago Blackhawks earn a point.
It started off pretty bad, and then it became pretty darn good, and then we were left with a feeling of sadness. Chicago Blackhawks, why do you play us that way? Nevermind, I think I get what you were trying to show us. Last night was a hyper-real portrayal of what this season has represented in... Read more »

Now that is what I call Hockey: Chicago Blackhawks 5, Blues 2.

Now that is what I call Hockey: Chicago Blackhawks 5, Blues 2.
This game was intense, this game was brutal, this game had meaning, and the Blackhawks proved they still have a will to win some hockey games. This is the first game in a while that I am giddy about recapping. The Hawks came out and established the pace, didn’t overwhelm the Blues, but decided the... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks pick up 2 points out of the ditch at home.

The Chicago Blackhawks pick up 2 points out of the ditch at home.
Insert posts from any day over the past few weeks here: In a complete shocker, the Hawks are lucky to win a game against a team that they should have taken easily. They give up 4 goals on a whopping 41 shots to a team that is the poster child for bad offense, getting spanked... Read more »
