Hawks travel to Minnesota for first of back-to-back games

The Blackhawks (20-5-4) were only able to enjoy the confines of the United Center for one game, a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to Dallas, before packing up and hiting the road again.  The Hawks travel to Minnesota to face the Wild (16-8-5), a team that has dropped three of their last four games after an otherwise impressive November.

The secret to the Wild's success lies largely in goaltender Josh Harding, who has put up outstanding numbers with a league-leading 1.45 GAA, and his stellar SV % of .939 trails only King's goalie Ben Scrivens.  Minnesota currently sits in the first wild card position in the Western conference with 37 points, and a win could catapault them in...

Hawks welcome back Versteeg in trade with Panthers

 

Last night, the Hawks turned heads by welcoming back Kris Versteeg from the Florida Panthers along with prospect Phillipe Lefebrve in exchange for forward Jimmy Hayes and defenseman Dylan Olsen.

After playing briefly for the Leafs and Flyers, he found a spot in Florida for t...

This was also the ‘official’ Chicago homecoming of former Hawk forward Michael Frolik, who received a warm welcome from ...

Hawks fall 5-3 to Wild

In what has to be classified the sloppiest game of this year, the Hawks were defeated by the Minnesota Wild at the United Center Saturday night. The Hawks took five penalties and the Wild had seven penalties. Each team scored a power play goal.

There was little to get excited about in this game for Hawks fans. The effort was there but the performance was uninspired and this game was something that most Hawks games are not - dull.

The Hawks had a chance to come back from a deficit and show why they are the reigning Stanley Cup champs but unlike last year’s team they were unable to mount a comeback. The game had way too many penalties and unlike last year’s penalty k...
