The playoff series between the Hawks and Blues was expected to be a high-powered and physical, and the two teams did not disappoint in a raucous first game that resulted in a 4-3 triple OT victory for St. Louis. Alexander Steen would get the winning goal 26 seconds into the third overtime period.
It was the Blues who would strike first less than five minutes into the first period, as Adam Cracknell got a tip-in past Corey Crawford to put St. Louis up.
Jeremy Morin has followed a similar career path as Brandon Pirri, bouncing between the minors and big league club and never really sticking or making consistent contributions. Pirri was traded to Florida, and many thought Morin would be the next out of Rockford. Instead, he’s making his case for the playoffs, and it’s a good one. After scoring four goals in the last five games, Morin was spotted at Tuesday’s practice with a white practice jersey on- which means he’s a ‘5th line guy’ or healthy scratch. This should not happen.
It only took 80 games, but the Blackhawks finally got a monkey off their back: winning a game in regular overtime.
Chicago welcomed the Montréal Canadiens to town for their final home game of the regular season. The Habs are without several players, including starting goaltender Carey Price, but they hold on to second place in the Atlantic division in the Eastern Conference, three points ahead of Tampa Bay, who have one game in hand.
From the way the Canadiens played, however, you wouldn't guess that they were short so many regulars. The refs were rarely on their whistles, and it was an entertaining and fast-paced game between two talented teams, with Montréal ...

Battered, bruised, and missing their two marquee stars, the Hawks hosted the Wild at the United Center looking for two points and a spark in their play that’s been lacking in the last few contests. They found both in a hard-earned 3-2 shootout win against the Minnesota Wild, despite forward lines thrown off because of injuries and a last-minute scratch of Johnny Oduya.

In 2011, the Minnesota Wild gave the Blackhawks a gift: by beating the Dallas Stars in their final game of the season, it sent Chicago to the playoffs.

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.
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.
Patrick Kane would get the Blackhawks on the board after dancing through the Colorado zone and flipping the puck over Varlamov's shoulder to make it ...
After beating the Blue Jackets soundly on Thursday, the Hawks traveled from Chicago to Patrick Kane’s hometown of Buffalo, where they defeated the Sabres 2-1. Jhonas Enroth made 29 saves, but it wasn’t enough as Chicago took the win.
The Hawks came out of the gate firing on all cylinders and jumped to an early lead on a goal by Kane, who sped through all the Buffalo defenders to put one past Enroth.
