Blackhawks Search for 20th Win of the Season Against Visiting Minnesota

CHI vs MIN03/05/20137:30pm CST The juggernaut Chicago Blackhawks (19-0-3) play host to the Northwest Division's second place Minnesota Wild (11-8-2) tonight in the first game of a home back-to-back for the league leaders.  Chicago is fresh off of an exhilarating 2-1 shootout win over division rival and fellow Original Six member Detroit. Hawks netminder Corey Crawford turned in yet another sterling performance on the day, stopping all but one of the shots he faced in regulation and the extra frame while also denying all three Red Wings shooters in the skills competition. Though Crawford was certainly impressive in the victory, it was everyone's favorite Ameri...

Hawks win in Shoot out 2-1 over Wings

 

In a classic original six rivalry at Joe Louis Arena, the Chicago Blackhawks once again found a way to win and in doing so kept their streak alive. It is now 22 games where they have secured at least a point bringing the Blackhawks to a record of 19-0-3.

This game had that old time hockey feel to it, where goaltending was spectacular; incredible skating pace; perfect positioned defensive play and skilled forwards on both sides.

You don’t need high scoring to have a great hockey game which this one was. There is just something about Chicago and Detroit match ups that brings out the best in both teams.

There was no scoring, and very little penalties thro...

Blackhawks win over Blue Jackets in OT; streak extended to 21

It may not have been Chicago's prettiest effort, but they still came away with the win.

The Blue Jackets were resting and ready to face the Blackhawks on Friday night. Chicago came home on the flip side of a back-to-back, having gotten a win in St. Louis last night.

Columbus has its share of injuries - the most recent occuring just today during morning skate, when Chicago native John Moore suffered an upper body injury. Defenseman Dalton Prout was called up from CBJ's AHL affiliate, the Springfield Falcons at midday. His flight was delayed and landed at O'Hare at 6:40pm - less than an hour til puck drop. He made it to the United Center in time to g...

Blackhawks Host Blue Jackets; Look to Extend Points Streak to 21 Games

CHI vs CBJ03/01/20137:30pm CST The streaking Chicago Blackhawks (17-0-3) square off against the eternally mismanaged Columbus Blue Jackets (5-12-3) for the second time in six days tonight in Chicago's United Center, and one would expect the Madhouse on Madison to be rocking after the Red, White, and Black's decisive 3-0 road victory over division rival St. Louis last night. Captain Jonathan Toews led off the scoring in last night's affair just twelve seconds into the game and added another tally early in the third for his first points since he posted a goal and an assist on February 17th against the LA Kings. With Chicago continuing to fire on all cylinde...

Blackhawks beat the Blues to extend streak to 20

It took just 12 seconds for the Blackhawks to show how good they are this season.

That's how long it took for Jonathan Toews to put in the first goal of the game, with assists from Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa.

The Blackhawks would go on to notch their third shut out of the season, taking the win 3-0 in St. Louis. In an unusual circumstance, Chicago goalie Corey Crawford played just one period - the first - before Ray Emery took the net for the rest of the game. As Crawford was on the ice for the GWG, he is credited with the win; but neither goalie was credited with a shut out.

Crawford is reported to have an "upper body injury" that is &quo...

19 and counting: Chicago extends The Streak

When the Oilers rolled into town, the Blackhawks remembered last season: Edmonton embarassing Chicago 9-2 and again 8-4, both on Rexall Place ice, and a 4-3 loss on United Center ice.

But even the hot young powerhouses of the up-n-coming Oilers couldn't hold the Blackhawks back from a win, and Edmonton was the one taking a 3-2 loss at the end of the night.

Edmonton's Jeff Petry opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal 4:28 into the first; the Blackhawks replied barely a minute later with a beauty of a Patrick Kane backhand on the power play. The game would remain tied 1-1 until late in the second, when rookie Nail Yakupov put one in to give the Oiler...

Blackhawks Look to End Homestand with Win Against Oilers

CHI vs EDM02/25/20137:30pm CST 

The Chicago Blackhawks (15-0-3) look to extend their eighteen game points streak against the Edmonton Oilers (7-7-3) on home ice tonight. It’s the first of three meetings between the two Western Conference squads in this shortened season.

The Blackhawks, who, almost inconceivably, have yet to yield a regulation loss through their first 18 games, are playing in the second half of their fourth back-to-back this season after dispatching the perennially challenged Columbus Blue Jackets 1-0 last night. Despite putting forth one of their weakest efforts of the season, the Hawks were able to walk away with yet another victory on the strength of goa...
