Your 2010-2011 Chicago Blackhawks.

Jonathan Toews was nominated for the Selke Trophy. This announcement comes hours after the Hawk’s 2010-2011 season came to an end. It reminds me of what was lost and gained this challenging year, of the ups and downs, the dominating moments and then those games when the Hawks seemed uninterested in winning. Through it all,...

How About an Applause for Your Chicago Blackhawks! Remember that all good things must come to an end.

How About an Applause for Your Chicago Blackhawks! Remember that all good things must come to an end.
Keep that applause going for Corey Crawford (amazing game), keep it going for Johnny Toews, and keep it going for the fans too. Things might not have ended how we wanted, but that was a great run at history. Vancouver can sleep easier now that they have eliminated the Blackhawks in OT of game 7... Read more »

Luongo gets chased out of his net 2 games in a row as the Blackhawks cruise to a 5 - 0 win.

It does not get much better than this. A 3-0 series gets turned into a 3-2 series seemingly overnight and our home team has stolen momentum on the way back home to live another day. Screw living, this team is now thriving. Crawford was brilliant, actually perfect, Hossa scored Twice (finally learning to lift the... Read more »

Getting the job done in Chicago proves problematic for the Hawks. Blackhawks trail 3-0 in Vancouver series.

Weathering the storm is a vulnerable tactic to take, and it is exactly what the Nucks did tonight. Vancouver held their ground during Chicago’s explosive 1st period. When the first intermission should have displayed a 2 goal lead in the Hawk’s favor in the least and a 3 goal lead being totally plausible, Vancouver only... Read more »

Is the Blackhawk's season Over. A 2-0 deficit to Vancouver proves daunting.

When Toews came flying out of the neutral zone and blew past both Vancouver defenders in the early part of this game, I jumped out my chair at the neighborhood bar and grill (that’s where I watch games when I don’t trust the internet). Now we’re talking, this is what I expected to see, but... Read more »

Entering the Playoffs without pressure. Blackhawks v Canucks preview.

Entering the Playoffs without pressure. Blackhawks v Canucks preview.
And now that the season is behind us, and the roller-coaster has stopped, giving us some time to get our heads back together, we can have a fresh outlook on the ride. I have to say that it is nice to see most of the pressure on another team for a chance. Even I feel... Read more »

The Blackhawks clinch the 8th playoff spot by the hair of their chinny chin chins.

I was on the ice when I heard the news. Somehow, without the help of Havlat and Madden, the Wild as icehogst put it, “skated their butts off,” and took it to a Dallas team who had to want it more. With that, the Hawks “clinch” the eighth seed. When I heard the news I... Read more »

Pure Disappointment, Hawks Fall to Detroit 4-3.

Oh Shit, pardon my french. The Hawk’s fate now lay with a Dallas defeat. It was theirs for the taking, nervousness aside, they just didn’t play smart enough. Power-plays favored them largely, the bulk of calls going on their side, they scored the first goal and had the early edge, but a Stalberg miss queue... Read more »

Live or Die by Toews, The Blackhawks win over the Blues in OT.

Live or Die by Toews, The Blackhawks win over the Blues in OT.
I made the statement last post, live or die by Toews. It means that this team’s fate seems tied to his abilities to carry them. When Toews is hot, the team gets hot, when Toews hits a rough patch, the team hits a rough patch. Not only this year, but last year and the year... Read more »

Blackhawks Roll Over the Sharks at Home for a 6-3 Win!

Now that was an exciting game. I spent more time on my feet than I have in a while at the United Center. Lots of reasons to celebrate with all the points handed out to Hawk’s players and the always important 2 points that shoved the Hawks into 4th place all alone, and only 2... Read more »
