The league-leading Chicago Blackhawks (23-2-3) continue their four game road trip in Colorado tonight where they will be seeking revenge against the Avalanche team (10-13-4) that ended their historic consecutive games with a point streak just ten days earlier.

The Blackhawks surrendered their first regulation loss of the season at Colorado’s Pepsi Center on March 8th and fell to the visiting Edmonton Oilers just two days later for their second regulation loss. However, the scheduling gods saw fit to give Chicago three days of rest following that Edmonton tilt and the league’s best team did not put them to waste.

Blackhawks romp to 8-1 win over Stars in Dallas

The Blackhawks are clearly ready to start another winning streak, as they took their second win in a row, this one an 8-1 romp over the Stars on Dallas ice.

It took Chicago more than six minutes to get their first recorded SOG, but after that, the floodgates were opened - the Blackhawks would outshoot the Stars 11-3 in the first period. Three of those would be goals: Jonathan Toews opened the scoring at 9:05, a redirect off a Leddy shot. Toews would score again under two minutes later to give Chicago a 2-0 lead; and then Nick Leddy shoveled in a goal on the Dallas doorstep to make it 3-0 with 2:06 left in the period.

Although the Blackhawks didn't score again unt...

Blackhawks at Stars: Game Preview

CHI@DAL- Game Preview

7:00pm CST

The Chicago Blackhawks are back on track and ready to perform tonight in Dallas against the Stars for the second time this season.

The Hawks prevented a three game skid on Thursday night, taking the shootout win over the stellar looking Blue Jackets 2-1 to end the Chicago/Columbus series.

The Blackhawks (22-2-3) brought up big Jimmy Hayes to fill the 2nd line spot left empty by Patrick Sharp and his shoulder injurt that will have him off the ice another 2-3 weeks. Hayes filled the position well, but more importantly the solid 3rd and 4th lines were restored to early season form and Johnny Oduya notched his first goal of the season.<...

Crawford, Kane Lift Blackhawks Over Blue Jackets

 

 

Determined not to add to their recent back-to-back losses during the previous week, the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 in a shootout at Nationwide Arena on Thursday night.

 

The Blackhawks, having not played in four days, shook off a bit of rust in the first period to eventually take over the remaining 20-30 minutes of play against a recently hot Blue Jackets team.

 

The Hawks peppered Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky with 40 shots on goal ...

Chicago looks to sweep series vs. surging Blue Jackets to begin their road trip

As the NHL announced this morning that the NHL Board has approved realignment,  tonight's game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Columbus Blue Jackets will mark the last time the two teams face each other as division rivals.

Next season, the Blue Jackets, along with fellow Central division rival Detroit Red Wings, will move to the Eastern Conference. Under the new alignment, Columbus will join a division composed of mid-Atlantic teams, and the Red Wings will move to a division made up of a mix of eastern Candian teams, Buffalo, Boston, both Florida teams, and Detroit. Chicago's division will consist of the three remaining Central teams, plus Minnesota, Winnipe...

Blackhawks Fall to Visiting Oilers 6-5 for their Second Regulation Loss of the Season

The Chicago Blackhawks (21-2-3) suffered their second consecutive regulation loss Sunday night in a 6-5 barnburner against the visiting Edmonton Oilers (9-11-5), trading in their 24 game points streak for a 2 game pointless streak. After looking sluggish for most of their 6-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche just two days prior, the Blackhawks continued to appear as though they were skating through quicksand, surrendering four first period goals to a young Edmonton squad that had lost five straight games entering the night’s contest. The Oilers, having been shutout in their previous two outings, scored their first goal in nearly 168 minutes just 2:24 into the opening frame on S...

Blackhawks historic streak continues with 5-3 win vs the Wild

The Blackhawks took their record to 20-0-3 on Tuesday night, and set a new team record while they were at it: for the first time in 86 years of team history, the Blackhawks have won 10 games in a row.

It was a special night in Chicago to begin with. The team celebrated Marian Hossa's 1,000th career game (played Sunday in Detroit) with a short pre-game ceremony. Hossa was presented with a silver hockey stick to commemorate his achievement as well as a painting of him hoisting the Stanley Cup; chants of "Hos-sa, Hos-sa," rained down from the rafters.

After that, it was time to get down and play hockey.

Chicago didn't open the scoring, but t...
