Blackhawks Bring Down the Avalanche

 

CHI v COL - Post Game Recap3/6/13 Chicago brings down the Avalanche 3-2 at home.  Chicago fans were a bit confused to hear Dan Carcillo announced as the starting right wing for the Blackhawks on Wednesday night's matchup against apparent rival the Colorado Avalanche, but his game winning goal with 49 seconds left in regulation and joyous celly made the UC crowd go crazy.  The Chicago Blackhawks, now 21-0-3 have three, yes three, historic streaks following them through their unstoppable season. The Hawks are through 24 without a regulation loss for the longest opening streak in NHL history, they have a franchise record streak of 11 consecutive wins, a...

Blackhawks win over Blue Jackets in OT; streak extended to 21

It may not have been Chicago's prettiest effort, but they still came away with the win.

The Blue Jackets were resting and ready to face the Blackhawks on Friday night. Chicago came home on the flip side of a back-to-back, having gotten a win in St. Louis last night.

Columbus has its share of injuries - the most recent occuring just today during morning skate, when Chicago native John Moore suffered an upper body injury. Defenseman Dalton Prout was called up from CBJ's AHL affiliate, the Springfield Falcons at midday. His flight was delayed and landed at O'Hare at 6:40pm - less than an hour til puck drop. He made it to the United Center in time to g...

Blackhawks Host Blue Jackets; Look to Extend Points Streak to 21 Games

CHI vs CBJ03/01/20137:30pm CST The streaking Chicago Blackhawks (17-0-3) square off against the eternally mismanaged Columbus Blue Jackets (5-12-3) for the second time in six days tonight in Chicago's United Center, and one would expect the Madhouse on Madison to be rocking after the Red, White, and Black's decisive 3-0 road victory over division rival St. Louis last night. Captain Jonathan Toews led off the scoring in last night's affair just twelve seconds into the game and added another tally early in the third for his first points since he posted a goal and an assist on February 17th against the LA Kings. With Chicago continuing to fire on all cylinde...

Blackhawks beat the Blues to extend streak to 20

It took just 12 seconds for the Blackhawks to show how good they are this season.

That's how long it took for Jonathan Toews to put in the first goal of the game, with assists from Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa.

The Blackhawks would go on to notch their third shut out of the season, taking the win 3-0 in St. Louis. In an unusual circumstance, Chicago goalie Corey Crawford played just one period - the first - before Ray Emery took the net for the rest of the game. As Crawford was on the ice for the GWG, he is credited with the win; but neither goalie was credited with a shut out.

Crawford is reported to have an "upper body injury" that is &quo...

Hawks shutout Blue Jackets 1-0

 

While Hollywood was celebrating its cinematic achievements, Chicago was celebrating another Blackhawks regulation victory. The win was not a masterpiece but, it was a win that garnered the Hawks two more points. It continued their incredible run of points and separation from the rest of the pack. Their record now goes to 15-0-3.

If this game were a movie, it could easily be called The Return of the Shutout Man. Corey Crawford was easily the best Hawk on the ice and turned in his second shutout of this abbreviated season. Crawford stopped all 28 shots that came his way. He did get support from his co-stars. 

Most noticeably on defense was Nik Hjalmarsson who c...

Blackhawks Edge Canucks; Extend Points Streak to 16 Games

 

Andrew Shaw and Patrick Kane scored in the shootout and Marian Hossa added two goals in regulation to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to 13-0-3 on the season.

As the horn sounded to signal the end of regulation with the score knotted at three goals apiece, Chicago officially tied the NHL-record-holding 2006-2007 Anaheim Ducks by starting the season with sixteen consecutive games without a regulation loss. That Anaheim squad lifted Lord Stanley’s Cup at season’s end, and dreams of a second parade in three years are surely dancing in the heads of Blackhawk fans across the state of Illinois tonight.

Chicago entered tonight’s shootout with a paltry 1-3 r...

Blackhawks crown Kings

The Chicago Blackhawks are one win away from their best start in franchise history with a 3-2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings Sunday night. The team’s point streak hits 15. The Blackhawks have yet to lose a game in regulation this season.

The Hawks scored two goals in the first period and a third in the second period. Goals were scored by Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews, and Patrick Sharp. Duncan Keith assisted on two of the team’s goals.

Kings Center Mike Richards scored two power play goals in the third period to cut the Hawks’ lead to one.

Hawks netminder Ray Emery, who made his second start in a row, had 27 saves in ...

Hawks cook Sharks in 4-1 win

There is nothing quite as good as a Friday night fish fry. There is a plethora of ways of cooking fish. You can bake, stir fry, poach, grill, steam and blacken fish into a delicious feast in which one can devour until fully satiated. The Blackhawks did just that Friday when they completely dominated the Sharks.

This game was not even as close as the score would indicate. The Blackhawks came out on fire with purpose and on a mission. If any game exemplified their mantra of one goal so far it has been this one.

The Hawks continued their undefeated in regulation streak which is now at 14 games. Two more games as they will tie a leag...

Will the third man for the shootout please stand up??

The Chicago Blackhawks can do no wrong these days.

Best record in the NHL. League leader in points standings,etc,etc. 

Someone has to be the guy to point out the glaring weakness: The quest for the third man in the shootout period.

One can argue that the third shooter dilemma has been the team’s toughest opponent thus far. It has gotten to the point when fans and even people who claim (I use that term loosely) to know the game can figure out that the team is better off winning a game in regulation.

After Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, it’s been slim pickings for coach Joel Quenneville. Marion Hossa, Brandon Saad, Patrick Sharp, who needs to start...
