Hawks stumble in 3-2 Shootout loss

Coming into this game the Blackhawks had absolutely nothing to play for other than their pride and improving themselves and continuing a seven game winning streak. The Phoenix Coyotes on the other hand were fighting for their playoff lives and had everything to play for.

The Blackhawks have to be commended for their character and focus. Everyone knows these games mean nothing to them and are really just glorified practices since they clinched their division and conference. They still managed to gain a point and come from behind to tie the game up and push the game to overtime and eventually the shoot out.

The Blackhawks still played a solid d...

Blackhawks Snuff Out Stars 5-2; Further Cement Western Conference Lead

 

Five different Blackhawks players scored, including Andrew Shaw with the game-winner, in a 5-2 Chicago victory over the Dallas Stars Monday night.

The Blackhawks (33-5-4) win was their third over Dallas (21-18-3) this year, sweeping the season series. The win was also Chicago’s sixth straight and moved them 11 points ahead of the idle Anaheim Ducks for the top spot in the Western Conference.

While Chicago was cementing its playoff position, Dallas was left wanting. The loss kept the Stars two points back of Detroit for the eighth playoff spot in the West, each team with just six games remaining. Columbus also sits two points ahead of Dallas, albeit with only...

Blackhawks slam the door on the Blues in 2-0 Shutout

 

As the Blackhawks faced another division opponent and another team desperate for points to make the playoffs, it was the Hawks that remained standing at the bell. Coming into the game it was the St. Louis netminder Brian Elliott who was coming into the game with a shutout streak but the Hawks not only answered they pitched a shutout for themselves.

 Corey Crawford gets the shutout but the entire team played solid defense in front of him.  It’s not that the Hawks didn’t make mistakes it’s that they covered for each other when they got in trouble and continue to improve their team game that is impressive.

From the very first drop of the p...

Blackhawks Shutout Wild 1-0; Capture 30th Win of Season

 

Marian Hossa scored the only goal of the game with 4:46 remaining in the second period and Ray Emery shut the door on the Wild shooters as Chicago captured its 30th win of the year in Minnesota last night.

Emery faced 20 shots to record his 15th win and third shutout of the year. The shutout was also his third in his last five starts, a stretch that has seen him go 4-1-0 with a 1.68 GAA and a 0.951 SV% and has many in the windy city sounding the Goalie Controversy Alarm.

Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom, making his 22nd start in the last 24 games for the Wild, stood on his head for most of the night, turning away all but one of the 31 shots launched by a tenacious...

Blackhawks hit the road against rival Detroit

CHI @ DET

11:30am CST

 

The Western Conference leading Chicago Blackhawks (25-5-3) face off against their division rival Detroit Red Wings (17-12-5) in their final visit to Joe Louis Arena during the 2013 regular season.

The Blackhawks have struggled as of late, suffering five regulation losses in their previous nine games. Across those five losses, Chicago has averaged less than three goals per game, and things won't be any easier today against a Detroit team that has yielded just six goals over their previous four contests.

With Ray Emery (12-1-0) suffering his first loss of the season against Anaheim on Friday, it will be Corey Cr...

Blackhawks home stretch report card: Fine-tuning before the playoffs

There is no better time to be thankful that all the armchair GMs aren't real GMs than directly after a tough loss right before the trade deadline.

Monday night on Twitter, as the Blackhawks walked out of a lackluster game with a 5-4 loss to the LA Kings, whom they had previously dominated earlier in the season, all the usual suggestions came out. So-and-so should go back to Rockford. So-and-so is dead weight this season and should be traded. (If he's such dead weight, who else is going to want him?) So-and-so isn't getting it done. In exchange, fans are looking for every high-profile player out there, future salary concerns be ignored.

In a season like ...
