Blackhawks welcome Lightning for Veterans' Day game

On Tuesday night, Chicago (8-6-1) will host the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning (11-3-1) for Veterans' Day. The Blackhawks will wear camouflage jerseys during warmups, which will be auctioned after the game.

The game will also mark Jonathan Toews' 500th NHL game since his debut on October 10, 2007. Toews is off to a better offensive start than previous seasons and hopes to continue that streak. Toews is currently leading his team with points with 13 (6G/7A).

Both teams enjoy a speedier, more open-ice style, which usually makes for a fast-paced, entertaining game between them. Then there's the high-scoring wingers: Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos has col...

Hawks blast Sharks 5-2

The Hawks came into the game with three home ice losses in a row. The Sharks were coming in after a third period come from behind win the night before over the Dallas Stars. Crawford was in the Hawks nets and Niemi in the Sharks net.

The game opened with some changed up defensive pairings on the Hawks. The first pair had Keith with Van Riemsdyk and the 3rd pairing saw Seabrook with Rundblad. The only d pairing that stayed intact was the 2nd one of Hjalmarsson and Oduya. Whatever it was it worked as the defenseman exploded with three goals in the first.

The game opened with the Hawks dominating play but with no goals to show for all their effort. The chances they got were all f...

Blackhawks' hard work pays off in 5-0 win at Montreal

The Blackhawks haven't had the start to the season that they would have liked: heading into Tuesday night, they were 6-5-1, their 13 points just good enough for 10th place in the West. This wasn't where Chicago was supposed to be, even among the powerhouse Central division. Part of it was the team's skewed performance: despite averaging a league-best 37.9 SOG/game (not to mention all the blocked and missed shots), the pucks just weren't always going in, even when the Blackhawks were grossly outshooting their competition. Prior to tonight, 10 of the Blackhawks' twelve games were 1-goal affairs, with two determined in OT, and two in the shoot out.  Statistics...

Hawks, Canadiens both seeking wins

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.


Hawks beat Senators 2-1

The Blackhawks came into the game on the second of back to back games with that being the case a new goaltender Scott Darling was manning the Chicago nets. Darling is an Illinois native and a big goalie at 6’6”. He stands tall and he did in the Blackhawks net as well.

After having lost two games in row the Hawks were looking to get back to the winning track. All the scoring in the game came in the middle period thanks to spectacular goaltending by Scott Darling who made his NHL debut in front of his hometown crowd.

Jonathan Toews started the scoring on a wrap around that beat Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson as he was slow to go from post to post. The goal was signific...

Hawks to face off against Flyers

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...

Hawks win 2-1 in OT against the Nashville Predators

The Blackhawks came into the game off of a frustrating overtime loss to the Calgary Flames. They had close to 50 shots on goal with only one actual goal in the game and as this game wore on it was beginning to have that same feeling as the game against Calgary. The Hawks had 37 shots against Nashville, this time though the results were much different.

Again Corey Crawford was great in the Blackhawks net and kept them in the game when the Predators were surging in the third period. Surprisingly, it was not Pekke Rinne in the Preadtors nets but a name that Blackhawks and IceHogs fans should be very familiar with Carter Hutton.  Hutton has manned many a IceHogs net and Hawks net a...

Blackhawks win first preseason game 2-1 in OT over Red Wings

Alright it is only preseason but it’s good to see the Hawks back on the ice where they belong. Even though pre-season games are just that there are several things that can be noted particularly since this is an audition for many of the younger players.

The Lines for the most part were Sharp-Toews-Hossa; Saad-Richards-Kane; Carey-Rasmussen-Morin & Mashinter-Danault-Bass. The Defensive pairing were Keith-Seabrook; Hjalmarsson-Dahlbeck & Rozsival-Cumisky.

Of the young forwards, Phillip Danault really stood out. He is very defensively responsible and was a faceoff monster at 67% which tied with the Captain for the highest percentage. Not too shabby. He also had two b...

'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 look to tie up series in LA

After a disappointing Game 3, the Hawks will look to even up the series Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings in enemy territory.  The Kings have 2-1 lead of the series, and could go back to Chicago with a commanding 3-1 lead and a chance to close out the Hawks.


The Hawks have been in this situation before- in series against both Boston and Detroit last year, the Hawks found themselves behind and on the road.  But this game is imperative for the Hawks ...
