After coming from the All-Star break looking less than their best, the Blackhawks are looking more like their usual selves heading into Wednesday’s matchup agains the Red Wings. With points in their last six games, the Blackhawks are looking to keep a two-game win streak going against Detroit, who are winless in their last three games.
The Blackhawks have a lot of things going their way. The return of Kris Versteeg to the lineup has bolstered the forward depth,...
After a convincing defeat at the hands of the San Jose Sharks, the Hawks head to Minnesota to face off against the Wild tonight. In the middle of an already grueling six-game road trip, the Hawks now being a three-game swing against three Central Division opponents, all looking for a place in the playoffs in the tightest division in the NHL right now.
The Blackhawks, still plagued by inconsistency, will be looking for their stars t...
There hasn't been a tremendous amount of early buzz surrounding this year's Winter Classic, which will feature the Chicago Blackhawks (25-10-2) visiting the Washington Capitals (18-11-7) at Nationals Park in D.C.
It's hard to miss the advertising, though; NBC has definitely been saturating all their markets.
This season, the NHL changed partners to present its The Road to the Winter Classic show; instead of HBO, it is EPIX carrying the torch. As the station is not available in all markets or with all providers, fans can watch the show unedited on EPIX's website, NHL.com, the team websites, or catch it censored (bleep bleep bleeeeeep) on NBCSN.
After a victory on Sunday where it looked like the Blackhawks could do no wrong, Chicago’s game against the Jets on Tuesday looked like it couldn’t do anything right. Winnipeg snapped an eight-game home winning streak at the United Center with a 5-1 victory that saw Corey Crawford get pulled just 15 minutes into the game after allowing three goals on 13 shots.
The Hawks had a rough first period that saw Winnipeg outshoot them 15-7. Crawford allowed three ...
As the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals meet on January 1st for the annual Winter Classic, tonight's game is being billed as a preview of the NHL's must-see game of the year. Capitals' captain Alex Ovechkin (6G/7A/13pts) - a powerhouse scorer in his own right - has expressed admiration for Patrick Kane's (4G/5A/9pts) stickhandling skills, and the respect is returned from the Blackhawks' talented winger. The two play very different styles, but both are among the top scorers in the league, and both are very entertaining players. They, plus their many talented teammates, should make for an interesting game not only tonight, but on New Year's Day as well.&n...
It’s far too early to start talking about must-win games for the Chicago Blackhawks, but if you wanted a reason to panic, tonight’s game could be as good a game as any.
The Hawks are coming off of a brutal shutout at home against the bottom-of-the-division Winnipeg Jets and have dropped three of their last four games. They could really use a win to get some mojo back on a team that’s struggled in the goal department as of late.
The Hawks will face the Flyers for the first time this season, and the seasons couldn’t have started differently for the two teams.
The Flyers won their first game of the season just three days ago, finishing a dramatic comeback against the Dallas Stars in overtime thanks to captain Claude Giroux, but their record is still just 1-2-2, which has them sitting at seventh in the Metropolitan division and tied for thirteenth in th...
We all knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make the parting any easier. The Hawks finally got under the salary cap ceiling by dealing defenseman Nick Leddy and goaltender Kent Simpson to the New York Islanders in exchange for prospects TJ Brennan, Ville Pokka, and the rights to goalie Anders Nilsson. The trade helped out both teams, as it successfully gave the Hawks some cap room while helping New York upgrade their blue line, but who really won this deal?
The Hawks have had trouble with the Nashville Predators all season, and after a reassuring win against the Hurricanes on Friday, went back to square one in a shutout loss agains their division rivals. Pekka Rinne would make 29 saves in a lackluster effort by Chicago, who’s inconsistent play is becoming more concerning as the playoffs approach. The loss dropped Chicago six points behind the division-leading Blues, who earned two more points today in a win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Blackhawks came into the game with a somewhat depleted force. Out of the line up with injuries were Kane, Saad, Bickell and Rozsival. As the mantra goes, the next man up which gave recently called up Jeremy Morin a chance at some United Center Ice.
The injuries also forced coach Joel Quenneville to come up with some unusual line combinations out of necessity. The constant and familiar Corey Crawford however was in net for the Hawks. Anton Khodbin was in the Carolina net.
The Blackhawks dominated the first period with good puck control and dictated the pace and play of the game yet were unable to score. The period went scoreless.
