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...

Blackhawks look to rock the Madhouse tonight in home opener



In just a few hours, the "feathered faithful" will fill the United Center to capacity, and the rafters will hopefully thunder to the chorus of "Chelsea Dagger", the Blackhawks' signature goal song.

There is no banner to raise to their own rafters this year, but the Blackhawks want to have a good home opener after ruining LA and Phoenix's.

Chicago will be kicking off their home games against one of their fiercest rivals, the St. Louis Blues. The Blues will be rolling into town on the back end of a road back-to-back after dispatching the Nashville Predators in a shootout on Monday night, 4-3. Prior to visiting Nashville, the Blue...

Blackhawks open the season 2-0-0 for the first time since 1996

Two nights, two wins, two banner-raising nights deflated, in two road games to open the season.

Not a bad start for Chicago. The Blackhawks haven't started a season 2-0-0 since 1996.

The men of four feathers rolled into Phoenix on Sunday after a decisive 5-2 win at LA, and looked to -- if not avenge last spring's playoffs, at least make up for them.

Last April, the PHX-CHI series was one of the tightest in recent Cup history. The first five games all went to overtime before the Coyotes blew the Hawks out of a deeper Cup run with a 4-0 win on Chicago ice. At the United Center for game 3, Coyote Raffi Torres took out Marian Hossa with an ugly headsho...

Chicago Blackhawks dethrone the LA Kings in opener

Cup hangover for the Kings? No - the time spent in the lockout eliminated that possibility for the Kings.

So perhaps it was simply the huge anticipation and emotional output that a team faces, raising a Stanley Cup banner to the rafters.

Two years ago, the Chicago Blackhawks stood in the Kings' shoes - except for the Blackhawks, the emotion of the moment was all the more poignant due to massive summer roster turnover. The Kings had almost none, beyond a player being traded this past week, and one of their assistant coaches who is now standing behind the bench for their Opening Night opponents.

The Hawks have been there, and were able to channel that kn...
