You Can't Handle the Truth!

You Can't Handle the Truth!
Wow, Now that was entertainment. From a 1-1 game no less. A goaltender battle, end to end excitement with some huge scoring chances, and absolute domination by the Blackhawks through much of the first half are just a few examples of what this game had. Detroit weathered a 30 minute storm in the first 40... Read more »

What Does It Mean?

What Does It Mean?
Just 17 games into this shortened season we already have a record setting year. It is last night’s win however, that gives me reason to feel so soft and cuddly about this team. Because, when the going got tough (meaning the Sharks really came out strong), and something bigger than just another win was on... Read more »

What Does the Shortened Season Mean for the Blackhawks?

What Does the Shortened Season Mean for the Blackhawks?
One thing we can be sure of, is that it will be even harder to make predictions this year. The shortened season is somewhat of a wildcard thrown into the mix of an already difficult outcome to predict. But, are there teams that will benefit most from this season, and others who are doomed from... Read more »

Checking in on the Blackhawks and the NHL.

Checking in on the Blackhawks and the NHL.
Just checking in to make sure everyone is still awake and around. Not much has been happening in the world of hockey, but there is always something to talk about, or an old topic to beat into the ground over and over again. Let’s see, there has been some talk about Leddy and future contract... Read more »

Contemplating Bryan Bickell.

Contemplating Bryan Bickell.
With some space between my last post that touched on the 2 cards in the Hawks deck that I anticipate great things from next year (if still here), why not turn to the card I am not sure should be held onto. Bryan Bickell is the biggest question in terms of single player performances for... Read more »

Viktor Stalberg, and Michael Frolik. Thoughts on their importance to the Blackhawks.

Viktor Stalberg, and Michael Frolik. Thoughts on their importance to the Blackhawks.
It is no secret that I have been a huge supporter of Viktor Stalberg since getting glimpses of his god-given talents for the sport of hockey. I have made numerous comments on how his speed is unmatched, adding that he could very well be the fastest thing on skates since, well, ever. His Cap hit... Read more »

Why that Horse-Poop the Blackhawks call a Power-Play kept them from winning some hockey.

Why that Horse-Poop the Blackhawks call a Power-Play kept them from winning some hockey.
Not even a single shot on net. Not one. That is how many shots the Hawks registered in their 3 power-play opportunities, and it happens to include a full minute of 5-on-3 hockey. Honestly, I was fairly happy with the overall performance of the Blackhawks tonight against a pretty darn strong Devils team. I would... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: Puck control leads to a W in Dallas.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Puck control leads to a W in Dallas.
It only took 10 seconds for the Hawks to set themselves for the win, and only 90 seconds more to put it away. Choosing once again not to be consistent, the Hawks came out of the gate firing on all cylinders. Still without Toews, a much better puck control game, decent defensive effort, not taking...

Standing Up: Blackhawks 5, Jackets 2

Standing Up: Blackhawks 5, Jackets 2
Was the performance by the Chicago Blackhawks so much better than others throughout the season? Not really. Was it better than what we have seen lately? Sure. There were maybe a few large differences from what I saw last night when compared to many other games, and not just the missing Patrick Sharp from the... Read more »

Mehh: Chicago Blackhawks lay a beat-down on the Habs.

Mehh: Chicago Blackhawks lay a beat-down on the Habs.
As I mentioned in my little ditty last night before crashing into a bed only to awake unable to use a single muscle, the Hawks and Habs were making for a very boring lack-luster performance through the first half of play. You could count the amount of shots on your fingers and that was combined.... Read more »
