IceHogs Interview: Pirri & Morin

The Rockford IceHogs are at a crucial point of their schedule, with only four games left in the regular season and every point critical to determining which teams will make the playoff cut.  The IceHogs are 38-31-79 on the season, with a division rivalry matchup against the Chicago Wolves tonight to heat up the BMO Harris Bank center for Fan Appreciation Night.

Blackhawks/Red Wings a playoff preview?

 

In what could be a preliminary look at the first round of the Western Conference playoffs, the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Detroit Red Wings for the last time during the regular season this year. In their previous three meetings the Blackhawks have prevailed in all of them.

The previous encounters between these teams have been classic tight defensive tilts that could have swung either way. Their last meeting however, was a complete whitewashing by the Blackhawks when they won 7-1 at the Joe. This will provide sufficient motivation for Detroit to come out flying coupled with the fact that they are still fighting for their playoff lives.

Detroit is currently in t...

Blackhawks Shutout Wild 1-0; Capture 30th Win of Season

 

Marian Hossa scored the only goal of the game with 4:46 remaining in the second period and Ray Emery shut the door on the Wild shooters as Chicago captured its 30th win of the year in Minnesota last night.

Emery faced 20 shots to record his 15th win and third shutout of the year. The shutout was also his third in his last five starts, a stretch that has seen him go 4-1-0 with a 1.68 GAA and a 0.951 SV% and has many in the windy city sounding the Goalie Controversy Alarm.

Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom, making his 22nd start in the last 24 games for the Wild, stood on his head for most of the night, turning away all but one of the 31 shots launched by a tenacious...

Blackhawks clinch playoff berth with 5-3 win over Predators

Chicago had shut out Nashville on home ice on Saturday; the Predators came to the United Center on Sunday hoping to return the favor.

The Blackhawks took Sunday's game 5-3 in regulation, and in doing so, also clinched the first berth in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs. They continue to lead the league with 62 points.

Sunday's match was a low-penalty game; both teams are well aware of the other's ability to seize on mistakes and make opponents pay. The Predators took a too-many-men penalty in the first with a bad line change; and Andrew Shaw collected an unsportsmanlike conduct in the second.

The story of the night was the strong play of Chicago&#...

Blackhawks visit Predators in front half of home-and-home

CHI @ NSH
04/06/2013
2:00pm CST

 

The league leading Chicago Blackhawks (27-5-4) visit their Central Division rival Nashville Predators (15-15-8) in the front end of a home and home series today at 2pm CST.

Nashville, winners in just one of their previous five, are four points out of the

final playoff spot in the West with just ten games remaining and will likely end the season on the outside looking in. While four points in ten games is certainly not an insurmountable deficit, the shortened season's intraconference schedule makes it extremely probable that the Predators will only be playing spoiler down the stretch this year.

Blackhawks claim 3-2 shootout win over Predators

The Blackhawks earned a win in the shootout Monday, and in the process, gave a point to Nashville. The Predators now sit just two points out of a playoff berth with 12 games remaining in their regular season schedule - three more of which will be against Chicago.

During the first and second periods, Chicago dominated most of the play, outshooting Nashville 27-11.

It was reflected on the score sheet as well. Brandon Saad put in the Blackhawks on the board with just 12 seconds left in the first period. Patrick Kane made it 2-0 with 7:50 left in the second.

In the third, however, the Blackhawks did what they've done a few too many times lately: instead of putt...
