Simple tweaks could ignite the Blackhawks' offense

Simple tweaks could ignite the Blackhawks' offense
Ah, the elusive third goal.  Something that’s “plagued” the “struggling” Blackhawks all season long.  In “all” of their losses (one in regulation, two in the shootout), they’ve scored two goals.  In their two shootout victories, the third goal only showed up because of the shootout win.  So what are the Blackhawks to do to end...

Predictions for the 2013 NHL season

Predictions for the 2013 NHL season
With less than 24 hours remaining in our hockey-less lives…I thought I’d share my predictions for the upcoming season. Western Conference Playoff Teams 1.

Hatred Justified : Vancouver embarasses themselves, "their" game

Hawks acquire Boynton as Niemi and Huet struggle again

Simply not good enough.  The Blackhawks dropped a 5-3 decision to the New York Islanders tonight.  Antti Niemi was pulled after surrendering three goals.  Huet wasn’t much better.  They have both failed their auditions to be the starting goalie for the Hawks, so what happens next? If tonight’s game wasn’t enough of a indicator that... Read more »

Huet and Niemi making strong case for a different goaltender

It’s been the Hawks biggest concern all season long.  Just when you think it’s solved, there’s a stinker.  I’m talking of course about the Blackhawks’ goaltending situation.  I’m not going to tell you that Antti Niemi or Cristobal Huet are terrible.  They aren’t.  They are decent goalies.  Huet has been ordinary.  He makes routine saves…and...
