Hawks burn Leafs 5-4

 

Another Original Six matchup is always fun. This matchup again saw two teams that do not face each other much and two teams that are looking to get back on the winning track. The Leafs are coming off of their own losing streak where they have lost 8 of their last 10. The Hawks coming off of 3 straight losses desperately need to keep gaining points to keep pace in the Western Conference.

 

The Maple Leafs themselves were in need of points as well. They are currently out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture in 10th place but are only four points behind. So they too would be skating with an air of desperation.

Blackhawks start the February road trip in Vancouver

Tuesday evening in Vancouver, the Chicago Blackhawks will kick off the start of their February 9-game road stretch with a tilt against the Canucks. Captain Jonathan Toews will be back in the lineup after missing the January 24th game vs. the Predators and the All-Star Game due to a minor injury. It is also likely that Patrick Sharp will be back for the Hawks after missing a few weeks due to a fractured wrist.

So far this season, the Blackhawks and Canucks are 1-1, each taking a win by four goals in the other's barn - the Canucks won 6-2 on November 6 at the United Center in the infamous "game with all the PPGs" (five, to be exact). T...

Blackhawks look to continue roll against Predators

 

The Blackhawks are coming off of a hot night in cold, blustery snowstorm in Chicago. They are looking to continue their hot streak and stay ahead of tough Central divisional opponent Nashville.  The Central Division of the Western Conference is turning out to be an absolute dog fight amongst the teams in the best division in hockey right now.

Currently the Chicago Blackhawks sit atop the Central division and Western conference with a 29-13-6 record and a league leading 64 points. The Blackhawks are coming in off of a three game win streak and an emotional reunion game Friday with the Florida Panthers. It is important they come away with points in this one as they a...

Flyers Look For First Win Of 2012 Against Surging Blackhawks

Tonight the Philadelphia Flyers (22-11-4) will host the Chicago Blackhawks (24-11-4) for the first time since the team skated around Wells Fargo Center with Lord Stanley's Cup high above their heads.

No one will ever forget the strangeness of the goal that ended game six, as Patrick Kane stormed the Philadelphia net and exploited Michael Leighton’s open five-hole.

Round 1: Blackhawks edge Red Wings, 3-2

Five more of those please!

The Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings put on sixty minutes of playoff-like hockey in front of a season high 22,166 at the United Center Friday night and the Hawks prevailed in the end with a 3-2 victory.

For sixty minutes, it seemed as though the only stoppages in play were for the two intermissions. The game opened with five or six minutes of continuous, back-and-forth action before the first whistle was ever blown.

Justin Abdelkader gave the Red Wings the early lead half-way through the first period after a big rebound was given up by Hawks goalie Corey Crawford. It seemed to sit there in the slot forever after the initial Drew Miller ...

Isles Fight Back to Grab Point Against Blackhawks

The Islanders took their five game points streak into Thursday night's matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks' early view atop the Western conference

The week ahead for the Chicago Blackhawks is going to be a trial-by-fire before they hit the road for their annual "Circus Trip", the two-week road trip that marks every November. It kicks off with the first of two season games against the Florida Panthers (the second will be on United Center ice in late January), followed by a game at Tampa Bay, then it's back home for the first matchup of the season against the Vancouver Canucks.

In light of the trade moves made by Chicago and the free agency signings by Florida this summer, Thurday's Blackhawks-Panthers matchup in Sunrise is a game that many fans on both sides of the ice ...

Hawks Thoughts - Kane Finds His Inner Savard

Blackhawks fans will remember one thing from last game against the Anaheim Ducks:

That Patrick Kane Spin-O-Rama pass.

The Chicago Blackhawks came away with a 3-2 SO victory over the Anaheim Ducks at the United Center on Tuesday night. After going down 1-0 and then 2-1, it was amazing to see the Hawks battle back to tie the game and keep themselves in the battle for two points, which they ultimately came away with.

Patrick Kane had another monster game with 2 unbelievable assists on both Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa's goals, not to mention the eventual game winning shootout goal to seal the deal. Kane dazzled with his "Denis ...

The Blackhawks are winning, but what needs work?

Does anybody else find it odd that Daniel Carcillo is leading the team with +/-, at +5? Carcillo has been a pleasant surprise so far, playing - dare we say it - smart.

Last year, the main word that was used to describe the Chicago Blackhawks all season long was "consistency". The team didn't have it; couldn't get any major winning streaks going; and most of the time, couldn't put together a third period to finish off opponents, leaving points on the table strewn across the league.

This year, the Blackhawks have come out of the gate hot. There's a lot to be thrilled about as a fan - a lot of production; team chemistry on the ice clearly there from open...

Hawks Thoughts - Game Day 10/18/11 @ Coyotes

Chicago Blackhawks are getting set to battle their southwest neighbors, Phoenix Coyotes, tonight at Jobing.com Arena (Glendale Arena). Game time is 9 pm central and is being broadcasted on WGN for you local Chicago folks. I apologize for the brevity of this post, as I was out of town this past weekend and am still catching up on loose ends.

The Hawks are well on their way towards being a great regular season team provided they can pick up a few of the missing pieces before reaching the mid-season mark. Patrick Kane continues to be an offensive force with 6 pts in 4 games playing at Center, winning 56.5% of his faceoffs, and he has not hurt his team de...
