Hawks shut out Panthers; face Lightning tonight

In their first game back without Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks played one of their best games of the season in first game of a back-to-back series. Corey Crawford got his first shutout of 2015 in a 3-0 victory against the Florida Panthers.

Hawks defeat Devils 3-1

The Hawks had a couple of different jersey numbers on the ice 38 and 26 that gave them a slightly different look both on the front and back ends of the lineup.

Making his NHL debut was Illinois’ own Ryan Hartman who was playing the wing on the fourth and third lines. He made a huge first impression in his first shift on the ice when he made a huge mid ice hit against Devils’ Zubrus who probably out weights Hartman by 30 -40 lbs.

Ryan Hartman was very physical and noticeable throughout the game adding some grit along with skill. Welcome to the Blackhawks, Ryan here is to many more appearances at the United Center.

Also noticeable was defenseman Kyle Cumiskey, ...

Hossa got the Hawks on the board first as he continued his dominant play from the game prior. The entire first line contributed, with Brandon Saad going in hard on the foreche...

Blackhawks close out road trip with 4-2 win vs Blues; face Yotes on Monday

The Chicago Blackhawks (33-18-2/3rd Central) finished their long California road trip with two strong wins, one was versus the Winnipeg Jets, and the other was yesterday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

Yesterday in St. Louis, the Blackhawks opened up the scoring with Marcus Kruger. And while the Blues tied up the game twice, Marian Hossa put in the game-winning goal 11:19 into the third on the power play, and then for good measure, added an empty-net goal with 14 seconds left in the game. It was inevitable that Hossa's goal struggles would eventually end, so if he's going to get hot heading into the home stretch of games, that's good for the team.

Hawks tune out the Blues 4-2

The St. Louis Blues are probably not opera fans, but boy they heard the fat lady sing early with approximately four minutes left in the game the Blackhawks took control with a 3-2 lead and never looked back. There was so much to like in this game if you are the Hawks and a Hawks fan.

The Hawks are often guilty of not playing a full 60 minutes, but that was not the case in this one. Up by only a goal late in the third the Hawks not only never let the Blues out of their own zone to challenge, they sealed the win with a Marian Hossa empty netter.

The puck possession was the best they’ve had late in games this season. The Hawks dominated the entire third period with a 12-3 s...

Blackhawks wrap up 2014 with roller-coaster game vs Preds

As the Blackhawks played their final game of 2014 - and their last game before the Winter Classic - it was a roller coaster game against the Nashville Predators.
