Blackhawks put out Flames to end losing streak

 

GAME RECAP

The Chicago Blackhawks ended their two game losing streak by shutting out the Calgary Flames last night 2-0. Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook each scored for the Blackhawks.

An added storyline to last night’s game was the trade speculation surrounding Flames Right Winger Jarome Iginla. Recently, Iginla submitted a list of four teams he would not block a trade to. The Blackhawks are on that list. Even though Iginla’s numbers are down, he can add veteran leadership to any of teams he is traded to.

Blackhawks netminder Ray Emery continued his strong play against the Flames by making 16 stops. Emery's personal win streak now stands...

Blackhawks home stretch report card: Fine-tuning before the playoffs

There is no better time to be thankful that all the armchair GMs aren't real GMs than directly after a tough loss right before the trade deadline.

Monday night on Twitter, as the Blackhawks walked out of a lackluster game with a 5-4 loss to the LA Kings, whom they had previously dominated earlier in the season, all the usual suggestions came out. So-and-so should go back to Rockford. So-and-so is dead weight this season and should be traded. (If he's such dead weight, who else is going to want him?) So-and-so isn't getting it done. In exchange, fans are looking for every high-profile player out there, future salary concerns be ignored.

In a season like ...

Blackhawks Down: Chicago drops second straight to visiting Los Angeles Kings

 

Dustin Brown scored his twelfth goal of the season with under two minutes remaining to hand the Chicago Blackhawks (24-4-3) their fourth regulation loss of the season in a wild affair that saw the Blackhawks surrender three one-goal leads.

The victory put Los Angeles (18-12-2) ahead of the idle St. Louis Blues for sixth place in the crowded Western Conference race, and moved them within striking distance of division-leading Anaheim. The Kings currently sit ten points back of a suddenly struggling Ducks team with sixteen to play. With two of those remaining games coming against Anaheim, it’s not inconceivable to think that last year’s Stanley Cup Champio...
