Hawks hang on to defeat Sabres 2-1

In what could be a tale of two hockey games the Chicago Blackhawks hung on to win over another Eastern Conference foe.

The Hawks opened up the game dominating in the first period with a 20-6 shots on goal advantage. The second period was pretty even and the third period you would have to give the nod to Buffalo, for which team was dictating play. The Sabres held the shots on goal edge in this tilt 13-3.

The difference in this game was the Hawks special teams as they held the Sabres 0-3 on the power play while they netted a Patrick Kane power play goal which turned out to be the game winner.  The other difference was Corey Crawford who was white hot as the game went on. Cr...

Blackhawks face the Buffalo Sabres

The Blackhawks prepare to face an unfamiliar Eastern Conference opponent. The last time the Hawks faced the Buffalo Sabres was back in 2012. This will be the first of two meetings this season between these two clubs.

The Buffalo Sabres are winless to this point with a 0-4-1 record which, could make them a very dangerous team if the Hawks overlook them or the dislike level is too low considering they have not faced each other much.

The Sabres come into this tilt with scoring problems as they are just averaging one goal a game. If that continues then the Blackhawks should be in good shape. You can never discount the Sabres however with Ryan Miller in net for Buffalo. Look for Co...

Hawks return to SCF defeating Kings 4-3 in double OT thriller

And then there were two. It took two overtimes for the Chicago Blackhawks to punch their ticket back to the Stanley Cup Finals but they did. They now are returning there for an opportunity at the most coveted trophy in sports.

The game saw the return of two key players for each side, Mike Richards for the Kings and Duncan Keith for the Blackhawks. Both players factored into the game in significant ways.

Duncan Keith got the scoring going in the first with what would have to be categorized as a soft goal by Jonathan Quick. Keith fired off a slap shot just inside the Kings blue line that squeaked through Quick’s pads into the net.

Quick seemed to make another misjudg...

Also expect a raucous Staples Center. The fans will be ready help the Kings get back in the series anyway they can. The Kings have not ...

Western Conference Battle Royale: The Man (Dis)Advantage

The shortened season and two rounds of the playoffs have rushed by like a freight train. Tomorrow is the first day of June and the four best teams in the NHL take the ice in the conference finals in the quest for the Cup.

For the first time since 1945 the conference finals pit the four previous Stanley Cup Champions against one another. There’s no rest for the Kings or Blackhawks, both seventh game victors and somehow favorites to represent the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Jonathan Quick and Corey Crawford have led their teams from their nets. After a shaky season Quick has not only returned but improved from his Conn Smythe performance from last postsea...

Blackhawks Lose;Detroit Takes 2-1 Series Lead

They’re too old they said.

They’re too slow they said.

The Blackhawks swept the season series they said.

After the outcome of game three, the reports of the demise of the Detroit Red Wings were grossly underestimated.

The Chicago Blackhawks knew going in that the Red Wings were going to do whatever they could to get them off of their game. Detroit's strategy working thus far. The Red Wings beat the Blackhawks 3-1 to take a decisive 2-1 lead in the best of seven Western Conference semifinal.

Game three was a much chippier affair. Both teams combined for 12 penalties. Seven of which were committed by the Blackhawks. Detroit continued to w...
