Blackhawks close out circus trip vs Kings tonight; beat Ducks yesterday

The Blackhawks circus trip wraps up Saturday night with a game versus the Stanley Cup-defending Los Angeles Kings.

But first, the Blackhawks played the Ducks in Anaheim on Friday afternoon, and beat them handily, 4-1.

Chicago might have stumbled their way through October, but they're rounding into form nicely in November, going 8-5-0 and outscoring opponents by an average of 3-2 (42-28), including 25 in their past six games. On the extended Western Conference swing, Coach Joel Quenneville hasn't been hitting the line blender quite as frequently. The line of Patrick Kane, Kris Versteeg, and Brad Richards have really clicked in particular - racking up the point...

Kings down Blue Jackets 5-2

The LA Kings and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet for what could be termed an afternoon dislike. With an early afternoon tilt or the fact that both of the Kings trades courtesy of the Columbus Blue Jackets first with the Jeff Carter trade and then the Marian Gaborik traded ended with the Kings not the Jackets winning two Stanley Cups was the motivation for a feisty game early in the first period.

In what also could have shaped up to be a goalie duel with Jonathan Quick in net for the Kings and Sergei Bobrovsky in net for Columbus was anything but.

The scoring got started by the Blue Jackets with Drew Doughty in the box for interference when Tim Erixson was the recipient of a def...

Kings win 2-1 over the Minnesota Wild

The Kings came into this game off of a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues that the Kings were severely out shot and out played but still managed to win thanks to goalie Jonathan Quick and this game was no different. This time Quick was able to stop 40 of 41 shots to keep the Kings riding the wave of his stingy goaltending.

Niklas Backstom was in nets for the Wild and played great but Jonathan Quick was just too much for the Wild coupled with their lack of being able to convert on the power play where they went zero for five. The Wild also were coming in having played relatively few games with a light schedule.

The Wild dominated play in the first period but it was the Kings who ...

'Zus strikes down Kings; Hawks force Game 6

In a matchup that felt more like a Game 7 than a Game 5, the Hawks and Kings put on a show in a 5-4 double OT win for the Blackhawks.  Corey Crawford and Jonathan Quick both made 40 saves, and it was Michal Handzus who would put it away for the Hawks 2:04 into the second overtime period.

 

The Hawks jumped out to an early lead, capitalizing on a power play just 1:13 into the first that had Drew Doughty in the box for tripping Jonathan Toews. Brent Seabrook let los...

Hawks gear up to face LA Kings

The Hawks have a return engagement to the Western Conference Final with a very familiar opponent, in fact the same opponent as last year, the Los Angeles Kings. In a series that could be called the tournament of champions the Hawks and the Kings are the last two Stanley Cup Champions and are looking for more championships but must get past each other first.

Throughout these playoffs we have heard the terms resolve and resiliency used on several occasions when describing the Chicago Blackhawks. Now more than ever they will need to muster all of their resolve because the LA Kings have an equal amount and know how to win and what it takes.

The Los Angeles Kings have faced elimina...

Jeff Carter and Mike Richards came to Philadelphia to play against the team that drafted them for the first time together on Monday.

The duo made their homecoming sweet as the Kings skated away with a 3-2 win, stopping the Fleyrs' five-game winning streak in its tracks. It was Carter's first game back in Philadelphia, missing his first opportunity two years ago when he was injured with Columbus.

Hawks head to the Olympics; USA/Canada player preview

 

After ending the first part of their season on a road trip where they went 2-1-3, the Blackhawks, along with the rest of the NHL, will have a 2 week break as the Winter Olympic games commence in Sochi, Russia.  Four of the 10 Hawks competing in the games will play for the two North American teams, as Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith will return for their second Olympic games after winning gold with Team Canada in Vancouver, while Patrick Sharp will make his Olympic debut for the Canadians.

Patrick Kane would score twice while Corey Crawford was stellar with 31 saves as the Hawks continue their west coast road trip, having earned six out of eight possible points so far.
