Blackhawks come up short in SO 2-1

 

In what was an unusually calm Blackhawks/Canucks tilt, the Blackhawks despite not playing their best still collected a point on the road. Even the Rogers arena crowd seemed pretty subdued except for when Duncan Keith had the puck and a chorus of boos echoed the building.

There were not any incidents, fights or really even any confrontations. Both teams seemed really focused on just picking up points and collecting a win.

For as much as we would like to send Roberto Luongo into stages of self doubt and lost confidence he played brilliantly against the Hawks big guns particularly in the shoot out.

The Hawks never really were able to sustain much pressure on hi...

Blackhawks and Canucks kick off their annual rivalry in Vancouver tonight

Over the past four seasons, the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks have had one of the most heated and entertaining rivalries in hockey. The rivalry is even commemorated by the Canucks with a statue outside Rogers Arena dedicated to a famous moment in the 1982 Blackhawks-Canucks Western Conference Final.

Their rivalry goes back for many years, and has resurged lately, as the teams have faced each other multiple times in the playoffs. The Blackhawks managed to knock the Canucks out of a Cup run in 2009 and 2010; and in 2011, Vancouver beat Chicago in overtime in game 7 of an exciting first-round series.

The two teams will face each other only three times this se...

Blackhawks look to continue their streak against the MN Wild

Wednesday night in St. Paul, the undefeated Chicago Blackhawks will look to continue their winning ways against the "new look" Minnesota Wild.

Although the Wild is tops in the Northwest division, the team has at times struggled to find their footing.

Minnesota is 3-1-0 at home so far this season, and look to hand the Blackhawks their first loss of the year. The Wild won last night 3-2 against an aggressive, physical Columbus team at home, breaking a 3-game losing streak.

Only 5 of the Wild's 16 goals for the season have not been scored by MN's top line of team captain Mikko Koivu, Zach Parise, and Dany Heatley. While the Wild may not have much scor...

Blackhawks Refuse to Lose; Topple Red Wings 2-1 in OT

 

The Chicago Blackhawks continued their winning streak last night by way of a 2-1 overtime victory against their Central Division rival Detroit Red Wings to move to 6-0-0 on the season, their best start in franchise history. Not too bad. The winning tally came just over halfway through the extra period, when a Detroit turnover in the Chicago defensive zone led to a deep outlet pass to Hawks winger Viktor Stalberg. Stalberg carried the puck into the offensive zone and hit Nick Leddy with a cross-ice pass that the Chicago defenseman promptly buried over Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard's left pad to send the United Center crowd of over 21,600 to their homes in a most...

Blackhawks beat Blue Jackets 3-2; extend winning streak to five

 

It wasn't their prettiest win of the season, but the Chicago Blackhawks played well enough to defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 in a physical game on Saturday night. Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford played another strong game en route to his fourth win of the season, stopping 24 shots on 26 attempts. Columbus started fast against their Central Division rival, controlling play for much of the first period as they outshot Chicago 8-1 over the first ten minutes. Their early tenacity was rewarded when Blue Jackets forward Mark Letestu opened the scoring at the tail end of their first power play on a mad scramble in front of the net. After a flurry of in-close sa...

Blackhawks wrap up the Opening Night hat trick with home opener win to go 3-0-0

The Chicago Blackhawks completed the Opening Night hat trick, securing their their win in a row in the third home opener they participated in -- this time, on home ice at the United Center in Chicago.

Before an opening night crowd of 21,455 - the largest opening night crowd in the NHL this season - the Blackhawks had a 3-0 lead and it looked like they might get their first shut out in nearly two years. However, St. Louis managed a late rally, scoring twice in the third period, to keep the game close. 

Patrick Kane started the scoring at 7:20 into the first period. It was another 21 minutes before anyone would tally again; this time it was a Duncan Keith shot that d...
