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 Blackhawks First Quarter Report Card

The past two seasons were a struggle for the Blackhawks. Although they qualified for the playoffs both years, neither route was ideal.

In 2011, gutted post-Cup victory, they backed into the playoffs based on the Wild's win over the Stars in game 82. The battle leading up to the playoffs left the team battered and tired - yet they still pushed the Canucks to Game 7 OT in the first round.

In 2012, they had a bit more of a cushion, but 101 points in the ultra-competitive West was only good enough for 6th place. Although the Blackhawks pushed the Coyotes to five OT games, and then lost to Phoenix 0-4 in Game 6 on home ice.

Hawks snatch one from Calgary in 3-2 shootout win

Photo by Maggie Avila

 

The Blackhawks came out of Calgary with a win that they had no business winning but isn’t that what great teams do? They literally snatched a win for what certainly should have been defeat. While they were doing that, back in Chicago and Blackhawks fans everywhere were going through just about as many heart palpations as Ray Emery had logic defying moves.

The Blackhawks came into the Saddledome road weary with having played in Vancouver just 24 hours earlier to face a rested and motivated Calgary Flames. Luckily for the Blackhawks they packed their Ray Bans because it was Ray Emery banning almost everything from the Hawks net.
