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 »

Valuing Hossa.

Valuing Hossa.
Since our last post touched upon an event that has had much bearing on Marian Hossa, why not talk a little bit about the guy on the wrong side of some of the douchebagery seen throughout the league in the form of high hits so well discussed. After all, Hossa is not the type of... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks fall in the UC and in the series to the Coyotes.

The Chicago Blackhawks fall in the UC and in the series to the Coyotes.
Make no question about it, the Blackhawks are losing this series because of their own doing. All of the terrible officiating aside, and even though it could have helped the Hawks get a win last night, because we all no how bad the calls were; the Hawks are getting beat to pucks, out muscled along...

The Chicago Blackhawks: Find an imperfect win against Toronto.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Find an imperfect win against Toronto.
It was Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya’s premier in the Indian-head sweater, and boy was it a rough start for him and his new team. The scene was that of two struggling teams coming together from different conferences battling to keep their playoff hopes alive. If you have not yet started questioning the playoff hopes of...

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 »

A Complete Win: Chicago Blackhawks douse some Flames.

A Complete Win: Chicago Blackhawks douse some Flames.
I am going to start somewhere that I rarely do with this game recap. It could be argued that I do not give Marian Hossa the love and respect with which he deserves, and well, today is the time to make reparations. In what could be considered a very complete win by the Hawks, the... 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...

Let the Bodies hit the floor: Chicago Blackhawks win again in OT over the Sharks.

Let the Bodies hit the floor: Chicago Blackhawks win again in OT over the Sharks.
All 5 goals scored in the game last night were the result of bodies in front of the net. Whether a rebound, screen, or tip-in, every puck went beyond the goal line as the result of a physical presence in front of the goaltender. The Sharks had the obvious  upper-hand in this type of play for... Read more »

Too Sharp to hold: Chicago Blackhawks win in OT.

Too Sharp to hold: Chicago Blackhawks win in OT.
On a large picture perspective, the Hawks played more responsible with the puck and without it, were not caught standing still as much, and looked a bit more cohesive as a unit early. Plus, they scored the first, and even second goal. Not without their issues, the Hawks gave up a few turnovers, but you... Read more »
