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...
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...
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...
While Hollywood was celebrating its cinematic achievements, Chicago was celebrating another Blackhawks regulation victory. The win was not a masterpiece but, it was a win that garnered the Hawks two more points. It continued their incredible run of points and separation from the rest of the pack. Their record now goes to 15-0-3.
If this game were a movie, it could easily be called The Return of the Shutout Man. Corey Crawford was easily the best Hawk on the ice and turned in his second shutout of this abbreviated season. Crawford stopped all 28 shots that came his way. He did get support from his co-stars.
Most noticeably on defense was Nik Hjalmarsson who c...
Ray Emery: 6-0-0 to Start the Season for the Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks are off to a league record start, taking 16 games without a regulation loss. Praised for its depth and talented roster of skaters, Chicago also rolls deep between the pipes this season. Backup goaltender, Ray Emery, has started his season 6-0-0, contributing in ...
When the Vancouver Canucks come to town, it's always some of the most entertaining hockey of the season. The Blackhawks-Canucks rivalry is one of the most intense in the NHL.
The Blackhawks are on the verge of a record: they've already tied for the second-best start in league history (points in 15 games); with at least one more point in Tuesday's game, they'll tie for best. If they can avoid losing in regulation between now and Saturday, it's a new high for the books. Until the Blackhawks lose in regulation, they may be wearing a bigger target on their backs than the Los Angeles Kings are, as defending Stanley Cup champs.
The Chicago Blackhawks (11-0-3) face off against the Los Angeles Kings (5-5-2) for the second time in this shortened season on Sunday at 2:30pm at the United Center. The Hawks defeated last year’s Stanley Cup Champions just four weeks ago by a final tally of 5-2 in the league's season opener in Los Angeles.
The Blackhawks are coming off a decisive 4-1 harpooning of the San Jose Sharks on Friday night, a game in which Chicago outshot their opponent 37-28 and got near-perfect goaltending from “back-up” netminder Ray Emery, who made 27 saves over the course of the contest.
The Chicago Blackhawks avoided their first regulation loss of the 2013 season but still suffered a 3-2 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks at the United Center on Tuesday night.
Despite getting a game tying power play tally from Nick Leddy and the go-ahead goal from Brandon Saad to make it 2-1 as a result of a very strong second period, the Hawks couldn't keep the Ducks from forcing overtime late in the third period, where they struggled to match Anaheim's intensity.
