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 »

Despite an inspiring performance, the Blackhawks say goodbye to the 2011-12 season.

Despite an inspiring performance, the Blackhawks say goodbye to the 2011-12 season.
This is a hard one to write. My fears began to materialize late in the 1st period as the Hawks poured everything they had on Smith, but it just wasn’t happening for them. The thoughts in everyone’s head before the series ended up finding a moment of reality for the Hawks; Mike Smith can single handedly... Read more »

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 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.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Late heroics prove worthy of evening a playoff series.
Player of the game: Corey Crawford. Yes, in the midst of some very late and yet timely heroics from the boys in the offensive zone, who found a miracle in a bottle for the second game in a row, who showed that when the going gets tough and desperate, the talented get scoring; it was... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: Squeezing their sticks too hard.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Squeezing their sticks too hard.
Should we start the countdown or something? How low can we go? If you missed the game, don’t bother watching. Same story, different building. The only real change is that the Hawks now seem to really, really want to win, but can’t really do anything about it. They are stuck in one of the many... Read more »

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 »

The Chicago Blackhawks add to the list of blow-outs this season.
Let us keep this wrap simple, since that is how the Hawks play was sold to use coming into the first game at home in a while. If you have seen my comment in the last post by Vegas, I mentioned that the Hawks were lucky to be sitting at the top of the standings.... Read more »
