Top 10 games to look forward to on the Blackhawks' calendar

The Chicago Blackhawks open their championship-defending season on Tuesday, October 1st versus the Washington Capitals. Needless to say, that game will be the number one ticket on Blackhawks' fans lists when regular season single-game tickets go on sale Monday morning, as Chicago has earned the right to raise a handful of banners that night - tops among them, the 2013 Stanley Cup banner.

Blackhawks can clinch Presidents' Trophy vs Oilers tonight

Tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks play in Edmonton for the first time this season. Their previous two games were both on United Center ice, and the series is split 1-1.

The Blackhawks have 73 points (34-6-5), and if they win in any fashion tonight, it's theirs for the first time since 1991.

Additionally, coming off a poor performance and rough 3-1 loss in Vancouver, the team should be looking to get back into form with the playof...

A Look Back At Alexandre Volchkov

 

The summer of 1996 was a memorable one.  Independence Day was due out in theaters on the fourth of July, the Spice Girls were driving parents of teenage girls insane, and the internet explosion was in full swing.

Washington Capitals fans had much more to be excited about than technological marvels and aliens attacking the White House.  Their team had the number four overall pick in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, which was to be held June 26, 1996 in St. Louis, Missouri. 

The Caps were coming off a 1995-96 season that saw them exit the playoffs in the first round to their rivals the Pittsburgh Penguins.  Morale wasn’t necessarily low amongst Ca...
