Blackhawks visit Predators in front half of home-and-home

CHI @ NSH

The league leading Chicago Blackhawks (27-5-4) visit their Central Division rival Nashville Predators (15-15-8) in the front end of a home and home series today at 2pm CST.

Nashville, winners in just one of their previous five, are four points out of the

final playoff spot in the West with just ten games remaining and will likely end the season on the outside looking in. While four points in ten games is certainly not an insurmountable deficit, the shortened season's intraconference schedule makes it extremely probable that the Predators will only be playing spoiler down the stretch this year.

Blackhawks hit the road against rival Detroit

CHI @ DET

The Western Conference leading Chicago Blackhawks (25-5-3) face off against their division rival Detroit Red Wings (17-12-5) in their final visit to Joe Louis Arena during the 2013 regular season.

The Blackhawks have struggled as of late, suffering five regulation losses in their previous nine games. Across those five losses, Chicago has averaged less than three goals per game, and things won't be any easier today against a Detroit team that has yielded just six goals over their previous four contests.

With Ray Emery (12-1-0) suffering his first loss of the season against Anaheim on Friday, it will be Corey Cr...

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 ...

Chicago seeks revenge against struggling Colorado

CHI @ COL

The league-leading Chicago Blackhawks (23-2-3) continue their four game road trip in Colorado tonight where they will be seeking revenge against the Avalanche team (10-13-4) that ended their historic consecutive games with a point streak just ten days earlier.

The Blackhawks surrendered their first regulation loss of the season at Colorado’s Pepsi Center on March 8th and fell to the visiting Edmonton Oilers just two days later for their second regulation loss. However, the scheduling gods saw fit to give Chicago three days of rest following that Edmonton tilt and the league’s best team did not put them to waste.

Blackhawks at Stars: Game Preview

CHI@DAL- Game Preview

7:00pm CST

The Chicago Blackhawks are back on track and ready to perform tonight in Dallas against the Stars for the second time this season.

The Hawks prevented a three game skid on Thursday night, taking the shootout win over the stellar looking Blue Jackets 2-1 to end the Chicago/Columbus series.

The Blackhawks (22-2-3) brought up big Jimmy Hayes to fill the 2nd line spot left empty by Patrick Sharp and his shoulder injurt that will have him off the ice another 2-3 weeks. Hayes filled the position well, but more importantly the solid 3rd and 4th lines were restored to early season form and Johnny Oduya notched his first goal of the season.<...

Chicago looks to sweep series vs. surging Blue Jackets to begin their road trip

As the NHL announced this morning that the NHL Board has approved realignment,  tonight's game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Columbus Blue Jackets will mark the last time the two teams face each other as division rivals.

Next season, the Blue Jackets, along with fellow Central division rival Detroit Red Wings, will move to the Eastern Conference. Under the new alignment, Columbus will join a division composed of mid-Atlantic teams, and the Red Wings will move to a division made up of a mix of eastern Candian teams, Buffalo, Boston, both Florida teams, and Detroit. Chicago's division will consist of the three remaining Central teams, plus Minnesota, Winnipe...
