Blackhawks roster set for opening night
While the Blackhawks haven’t announced it officially, their opening night roster appears to be set.  The last remaining piece was the battle for the all important 8th d-man spot between Mike Kostka and Ryan Stanton.  Stanton was claimed off waivers by Vancouver today, so I think it’s safe to say that Kostka won the job....

Blackhawks unveil 2013 Stanley Cup Championship rings

Sunday night, the Blackhawks and Jostens unveiled the design for the Blackhawks’ 2013 Stanley Cup Championship ring.

Readers of this blog, Twitter followers, and Facebook people chimed in with their queries.  Here’s what they had to ask. Sarcastic Mike... Read more »

Crawford has finally erased all doubt

Crawford has finally erased all doubt
It’s finally happened.  At least I think it has. For most of the 2013 hockey season, a large vocal portion of  Blackhawk fans and critics have been critical of Corey Crawford.  Never mind the fact that his 1.94 goals against average was good for third among goalies in the regular season.  His save percentage of...
