Blackhawks back home, take on the Stars

For their first game back at the UC, the Chicago Blackhawks (20-4-4) are hosting their Central division rivals, the Dallas Stars (12-9-4). The Blackhawks had a very strong road trip, going 6-1-0 during their time away from Chicago, while the Stars have dropped 4 of their last 5 games. The Hawks are hoping to be able to settle back home with a strong win, but the Stars have proven to be solid while on the road.

Blackhawks face off vs the Stars in Dallas on Friday night

For the past five years, the Blackhawks have wrapped up their circus trip with a Thanksgiving weekend swing through California. This year the pattern changed, and they're ending the trip with back-to-back games in Dallas and Phoenix.

Dallas and Chicago last faced each other three weeks ago on November 9 in Dallas. The Blackhawks won that game 5-2 and hope to repeat the performance on Friday night.

The Blackhawks currently sit atop the league with 40 points. The Stars are last in the Central with 26 points, and sit 8 points out of a playoff position in the West. Were they in the Metropolitan Division, they'd be comfortably in second place, ahead of the Rangers...

Blackhawks down Stars 5-2; prepare to face Oilers on Sunday

For the first period in Dallas, it felt like the Blackhawks were busy shooting themselves in the foot with a constant parade to the penalty box.

However, despite taking six penalties in this game, Chicago actually made progess on their penalty kill, going 6-for-6, which was good enough to jump from 30th to 27th in league PK standings.

Cody Eakin started the scoring in tonight's game, notching a goal for the Stars 6:10 into the first. Marian Hossa would continue his recent hot streak by opening the scoring for the Blackhawks with just under four minutes left in the period.

Tyler Seguin pulled Dallas ahead with a goal 6:54 into the second, but the lead w...

Blackhawks hoping to snap Dallas' winning streak

After an entertaining win for the Blackhawks against the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday, the Blackhawks (10-2-4) are in Dallas to play the Stars (8-6-2). The Stars are riding a hot streak after netting their 3rd consecutive win against Detroit on Thursday, while the Blackhawks win against the Jets came after an OT loss against Calgary.

 

The Blackhawks played a tight game Wednesday, and while the goals came from their top 2 lines, the bottom 2 lines are not to be dismissed, as they were active and energetic. The Stars have brought Jamie Be...

Kings Battle For Fourth Seed

 

 

Preview:  Tonight is the Mullet Game for the Kings (25-14-5; 55 points): business in the front; party in the back. Vancouver’s 2-1 SO win last night over Detroit launches the Kings into the playoffs. The question now is where do they land and who will they face. Tonight’s game (along with the two against the Wild and one against the Red Wings) will determine their seed as they most likely battle the Sharks for home-ice advantage between the four and five seeds.

Los Angeles still has a lot of business in front of them but fans should celebrate the playoff berth. The opening two weeks of the season saw some awful hockey, inconsistent play by ...

Blackhawks Snuff Out Stars 5-2; Further Cement Western Conference Lead

 

Five different Blackhawks players scored, including Andrew Shaw with the game-winner, in a 5-2 Chicago victory over the Dallas Stars Monday night.

The Blackhawks (33-5-4) win was their third over Dallas (21-18-3) this year, sweeping the season series. The win was also Chicago’s sixth straight and moved them 11 points ahead of the idle Anaheim Ducks for the top spot in the Western Conference.

While Chicago was cementing its playoff position, Dallas was left wanting. The loss kept the Stars two points back of Detroit for the eighth playoff spot in the West, each team with just six games remaining. Columbus also sits two points ahead of Dallas, albeit with only...

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...
