Hawks defeat Predators as PP keeps rolling

 

The Hawks looked to keep rolling as they travelled to Nashville to face off against the Predators and former Hawks Carter Hutton and Viktor Stalberg.  The last time the Hawks played in the Nashville rink this season, they were thoroughly beaten 7-2, but tonight walked away with a 3-1 win.  Bryan Bickell made his return after missing roughly a month with a lower body injury, while Antti Raanta made 27 saves and Patrick Kane scored his team-leading 20th goal in the victory.

The Hawks got on the board early with a wicked shot by Duncan K...

Blackhawks Pummel Flyers

The Blackhawks errupted for five goals in the second period en route to a 7-2 beating of the Flyers on Wednesday.

Three former Flyers - Michal Handzus, Patrick Sharp and Kris Versteeg - scored a goal apiece and combined for seven points in the win. Goalie Ray Emery was pulled after allowing six goals.

13 Hawks earn points in dominant victory over Flyers

Philadelphia came to Chicago tonight looking for a game against one of the league’s top teams to use as a measuring stick for their own success.  After an embarrassing 7-2 thumping by the Hawks, they may want to reconsider that statement.  13 Blackhawk players would finish the game with at least a point, and Antti Raanta finished with a .933 SV%, proving yet again that he is a very capable goaltender.  Ray Emery, who started against his former team, would allow six goals on 18 shots.

The game got off to a rough start right away, when Sheldon Brookbank and Wayne Simmonds dropped the glove a...

Hawks special teams shine in win against Panthers

The Blackhawks were dominant in a 6-2 win against the Florida Panthers, scoring 3 of their 5 goals on the power play and staying perfect on the penalty kill.  The win was tainted by an injury to starting netminder Corey Crawford, who lasted only 13:45 in the first period before being replaced by Antti Rannta.  Raanta was solid, making 28 saves and allowing only two goals.

The Hawks came out jumping in the first, and needed only 70 seconds to take the lead.  After a bad penalty by former Hawk Tomas Kopecky for high-sticking Niklas Hjalmarsson, Patrick Sharp blasted a high shot from the point on the ensuing power play past goalie Scott Clemmensen, who was screened on th...

Blackhawks take game 1 vs the Red Wings in WSF series

There was a feeling in the building that the first round series vs. the Wild lacked. It was an energy that was nearly palatable, fueled by the rivalry that is the deepest in the NHL: tonight's game marked the 800th between the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings, the most between any two teams in the league.

The two teams looked near-equal in the first. Chicago looked like they were getting their game feet back under themselves after nearly a week off; while Detroit was still fresh off their series vs. Anaheim. Shots on goal were nearly even; the Blackhawks gave the Red Wings two power plays while only gaining one of their own; and the two teams got out of the period tied a...

Hawks stumble in 3-2 Shootout loss

Coming into this game the Blackhawks had absolutely nothing to play for other than their pride and improving themselves and continuing a seven game winning streak. The Phoenix Coyotes on the other hand were fighting for their playoff lives and had everything to play for.

The Blackhawks have to be commended for their character and focus. Everyone knows these games mean nothing to them and are really just glorified practices since they clinched their division and conference. They still managed to gain a point and come from behind to tie the game up and push the game to overtime and eventually the shoot out.

The Blackhawks still played a solid d...

Blackhawks put out Flames to end losing streak

 

GAME RECAP

The Chicago Blackhawks ended their two game losing streak by shutting out the Calgary Flames last night 2-0. Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook each scored for the Blackhawks.

An added storyline to last night’s game was the trade speculation surrounding Flames Right Winger Jarome Iginla. Recently, Iginla submitted a list of four teams he would not block a trade to. The Blackhawks are on that list. Even though Iginla’s numbers are down, he can add veteran leadership to any of teams he is traded to.

Blackhawks netminder Ray Emery continued his strong play against the Flames by making 16 stops. Emery's personal win streak now stands...
