Quenneville has options if Toews can't play in Game 6
Saturday night in Chicago, the Blackhawks put together their most complete effort of the Stanley Cup Final so far.  There was no dominating period like in Game Two, but for close 60 minutes, the Hawks dictated play and remained aggressive.  In the end, the Hawks would take Game Five 3-1, and are now one win...

Buckle up, Hawk fans...it's going to be a long series

Buckle up, Hawk fans...it's going to be a long series
It’s never easy to win a Stanley Cup. When the Blackhawks won it in 2010, maybe it seemed too easy.  That memorable season, the Hawks had their share of scares in the playoffs, but did it ever really feel like they wouldn’t win?  Not to me.  The Hawks were so much better, so much deeper...

Crawford has finally erased all doubt

Crawford has finally erased all doubt

A lot of things are on my mind before tonight’s Game One of the Stanley Cup Final, so I’ll just go point to point and you can sort out my insane ramblings. –  I don’t like the fact that Brandon Bollig is in the lineup over Viktor Stalberg.  I know Stalberg hasn’t exactly set the... Read more »

Healthy Hossa looking dominant again
Maybe it’s all of the working out he does, but Marian Hossa looks like a new guy.  When the Blackhawks signed him in the summer of 2009, I was ecstatic.  Hossa was the final piece of the Stanley Cup puzzle, and it worked.  However, many fans became concerned with Hossa on the long term.  Before...
