Hawks hand Blues first division loss in regulation

The Blues may be atop the Central Division at the moment, but it was their rivals the Hawks that walked away with a victory on Wednesday night at the UC.  Corey Crawford woud make 23 saves as the Hawks defeated the league-leading Blues in a 4-0 victory, their first division regulation-loss in the entire season.

Hawks look to find groove against Predators

After a disappointing loss in Colorado on Wednesday, the Hawks are looking to get back on track as they host the Nashville Predators on Friday night.  Both teams have struggled as they’ve returned from the Olympic break, but the Predators have won their last two games, scoring four goals in each contest.  They roll into Chicago on the last leg of a three-game trip, and while they’re currently eight points out of a playoff spot, they’re still a threat to the defending Stanley Cup champs.

Blackhawks drop 3-2 loss to Avs in final season match-up

In their last meeting of the regular season, both the Blackhawks and Avalanche came out flying.

Duncan Keith had the first penalty of the game, a roughing call in front of the Blackhawks' net. The Avalanche put plenty of pressure in Chicago's end, but despite a handful of shots, the closest they got was a goalpost.

Brad Malone put the Avalanche on the board first with 1:36 left in the first, with a sharp-angle shot. Matt Duchene would stretch the lead to 2-0 just 19 seconds into the second period.

Kane scores twice as Hawks sweep series against Kings

 

The Hawks entered their 6,000 NHL game as a franchise with one goal in mind- to rebound from a rough shootout loss against the Sharks, and they celebrated the occasion by finishing off a series sweep of LA.

Blackhawks lose to Wild 2-1 in regulation

The Blackhawks haven't lost many games in regulation this season, nor do they drop many games in the tail end of back-to-back games.

Tonight in Minnesota, they did both, losing 2-1 to the Wild in regulation after playing at Detroit last night.

Chicago looked lackluster in the first period - not surprising, as travel delays out of Detroit after a six-round shootout meant they didn't get to their St. Paul hotel until 3 a.m. Though they had some stretches of pressure in the Wild's end, they were outhit, outshot, and most importantly, outscored.

The Wild's first goal came from Jason Pominville, who continues to collect career points against the Blackhawk...

The Oilers, fresh off a come-from-behind victory against the Penguins, played well in the beginning...
