Hawks welcome back Versteeg in trade with Panthers

 

Last night, the Hawks turned heads by welcoming back Kris Versteeg from the Florida Panthers along with prospect Phillipe Lefebrve in exchange for forward Jimmy Hayes and defenseman Dylan Olsen.  

Versteeg, a fan favorite, played a key role on the Hawk’s 2010 championship winning team, and was then a victim of the subsequent roster turnover due to the cap crunch that sent him to Toronto for former Hawk Viktor Stalberg. After playing briefly for the Leafs and Flyers, he found a spot in Florida for t...

The Hawks had a fast start as per their usual brand of hockey, outshooting the Flames 18-11 in the first period, three of which came on their first power play opportunity.  Berra, who finished the game w...

Toews Leads Comeback Win Over Sens

 

The Hawks faced the Senators in the second game of a back to back trip, but the pace was far from sluggish as the two teams traded chances in a high scoring affair en route to a wild 6-5 win.  Jonathan Toews scored his 3rd career hat trick and collected an assist while Corey Crawford made 13 saves in relief of Nikolai Khabibulin after the backup netminder let in 4 goals in 22 shots.

Blackhawks drop wild game 6-5 to Tampa Bay Lightning in OT

The Blackhawks don't often have wild barn-burner games, but Thursday night's game was a doozy of an 6-5 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Florida.

Chicago has trailed other teams for just a handful of minutes this season. For once, the other team leapt out to a 2-0 lead early. Matthew Carle put the Lightning on the board with a power play goal 6:28 in the first.

Adding insult to injury, the Bolts took the dreaded "too many men" bench penalty - and not only did they outplay the Blackhawks on the PK, but scored against them as well, with Nate Thompson making it 2-0.

Bryan Bickell camped on Ben Bishop's doorstop, and scooped up...

A Cluster Of Youth Makes For A Roster Logjam, Which Is Good News

Going into this season the New York Islanders are in a very unique position compared to what they have been in the past. They are a team that is confident having come off of an unexpected and impressive playoff appearance last year. They have organizational depth that has built up nicely from sticking to their rebuilding plan and drafting well. To supplement that, they have made smart signings and waiver additions that both have and are looking to make an impact in the NHL. With the majority of the roster already set, it will be these players that are fighting to stay in the bottom lines that could ultimately have the biggest impact on how the Islanders do this season.
