Hawks grind out the Blues with 4-2 win

Sunday is usually a day for rest and relaxation. On this Sunday afternoon the Blackhawks continued their hard worker bee mentality and were able to grind down the St. Louis Blues. Minus several key players and with Brandon Saad a healthy scratch again saw several maybe not as well known players, unless you follow the Rockford IceHogs, step up but none more than Jeremy Morin.

The plucky Morin had a whale of a game with a goal and an assist. Morin has been bounced between the Blackhawks and the IceHogs all year and this time he is looking to stick with the Hawks and make a case for himself with the coaches to put him on the ice. Fortitude is what Morin has displayed all year whether i...

Hawks gut the Blue Jackets 4-3

When one man goes down another needs to step up when several go down several need to step up and they certainly did. Stacey King, the Bulls broadcaster has a saying bring your “hard hat, lunch pal” game. Bring the blue collar work hard mentality and never quit. The Hawks had several candidates most notably the make shift line of Bickell, Regin and Morin who really stood out.  

Ben Smith scored the game winning goal with 3+ seconds left in regulation to deliver the gut wrenching blow to the Columbus Blue Jackets who are a team still looking to maintain or better their positioning in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. This had to delight Detroit, Philadelphia and...

Blackhawks calm the Hurricanes with 3-2 win

 

The Blackhawks came into the game with a somewhat depleted force. Out of the line up with injuries were Kane, Saad, Bickell and Rozsival. As the mantra goes, the next man up which gave recently called up Jeremy Morin a chance at some United Center Ice.

The injuries also forced coach Joel Quenneville to come up with some unusual line combinations out of necessity. The constant and familiar Corey Crawford however was in net for the Hawks. Anton Khodbin was in the Carolina net.

The Blackhawks dominated the first period with good puck control and dictated the pace and play of the game yet were unable to score. The period went scoreless.

All of the scoring came i...

Hawks overwhelmed by Avalanche in return to the United Center

After a dominant win against the Penguins at Soldier Field on Saturday, the Hawks would drop their third game this season to the Colorado Avalanche in a 4-2 home loss at the United Center.  Semyon Varlamov was stellar in net, stopping 36 shots for the Avs, while Corey Crawford would take the loss for the Hawks.

 

Maxime Talbot would get the Avalanche on the board first on Colorado’s 5th shot of the game off of a sneaky redirect near the left faceoff dot.

Blackhawks snow the Penguins 5-1 in Stadium Series

The defending Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, versus the popular Pittsburgh Penguins. A powerhouse showcase at Soldier Field. Megastars Jonathan Toews versus Sidney Crosby, playing their very first game against one another despite both being in the league for seven seasons. A kid who grew up watching the Penguins but has now won a Cup with the Blackhawks. Players who were medal-winning teammates in Sochi a week ago now facing off across the ice.

Going into Saturday night's Stadium Series game in Chicago, the stage was set with storylines galore. You could hardly turn without bumping into one.

Ultimately, however, the story was about the weat...

Late push not enough as Hawks fall to Rangers

The Rangers would get on the board first after a back and forth first period that had good ...

Patrick Kane would score twice while Corey Crawford was stellar with 31 saves as the Hawks continue their west coast road trip, having earned six out of eight possible points so far.
