Blackhawks look to steal another victory from the Avalanche

CHI v. COL- Game Preview

8:00pm CST

The teams will switch venues as the Chicago Blackhawks head to Colorado to face the Colorado Avalanche for the second time in three days. The Blackhawks are looking to improve on their record-setting points streak. The Blackhawks beat Colorado this past Wednesday 3-2 on an overtime goal from Daniel Carcillo.

Winger Patrick Sharp was injured in Wednesday’s game. The shoulder injury he suffered appears to be more severe than team officials originally thought. To replace Sharp in the lineup, the team recalled Brandon Bollig from Rockford.

The Avalanche are led by Matt Duchene and PA Parenteau. Both are tied for the team...

Blackhawks Bring Down the Avalanche

 

CHI v COL - Post Game Recap3/6/13 Chicago brings down the Avalanche 3-2 at home.  Chicago fans were a bit confused to hear Dan Carcillo announced as the starting right wing for the Blackhawks on Wednesday night's matchup against apparent rival the Colorado Avalanche, but his game winning goal with 49 seconds left in regulation and joyous celly made the UC crowd go crazy.  The Chicago Blackhawks, now 21-0-3 have three, yes three, historic streaks following them through their unstoppable season. The Hawks are through 24 without a regulation loss for the longest opening streak in NHL history, they have a franchise record streak of 11 consecutive wins, a...

19 and counting: Chicago extends The Streak

When the Oilers rolled into town, the Blackhawks remembered last season: Edmonton embarassing Chicago 9-2 and again 8-4, both on Rexall Place ice, and a 4-3 loss on United Center ice.

But even the hot young powerhouses of the up-n-coming Oilers couldn't hold the Blackhawks back from a win, and Edmonton was the one taking a 3-2 loss at the end of the night.

Edmonton's Jeff Petry opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal 4:28 into the first; the Blackhawks replied barely a minute later with a beauty of a Patrick Kane backhand on the power play. The game would remain tied 1-1 until late in the second, when rookie Nail Yakupov put one in to give the Oiler...

Hawks shutout Blue Jackets 1-0

 

While Hollywood was celebrating its cinematic achievements, Chicago was celebrating another Blackhawks regulation victory. The win was not a masterpiece but, it was a win that garnered the Hawks two more points. It continued their incredible run of points and separation from the rest of the pack. Their record now goes to 15-0-3.

If this game were a movie, it could easily be called The Return of the Shutout Man. Corey Crawford was easily the best Hawk on the ice and turned in his second shutout of this abbreviated season. Crawford stopped all 28 shots that came his way. He did get support from his co-stars. 

Most noticeably on defense was Nik Hjalmarsson who c...

Blackhawks Edge Canucks; Extend Points Streak to 16 Games

 

Andrew Shaw and Patrick Kane scored in the shootout and Marian Hossa added two goals in regulation to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to 13-0-3 on the season.

As the horn sounded to signal the end of regulation with the score knotted at three goals apiece, Chicago officially tied the NHL-record-holding 2006-2007 Anaheim Ducks by starting the season with sixteen consecutive games without a regulation loss. That Anaheim squad lifted Lord Stanley’s Cup at season’s end, and dreams of a second parade in three years are surely dancing in the heads of Blackhawk fans across the state of Illinois tonight.

Chicago entered tonight’s shootout with a paltry 1-3 r...

Blackhawks crown Kings

The Chicago Blackhawks are one win away from their best start in franchise history with a 3-2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings Sunday night. The team’s point streak hits 15. The Blackhawks have yet to lose a game in regulation this season.

Kings Center Mike Richards scored two power play goals in the third period to cut the Hawks’ lead to one.

Hawks netminder Ray Emery, who made his second start in a row, had 27 saves in ...

Will the third man for the shootout please stand up??

The Chicago Blackhawks can do no wrong these days.

Best record in the NHL. League leader in points standings,etc,etc. 

Someone has to be the guy to point out the glaring weakness: The quest for the third man in the shootout period.

One can argue that the third shooter dilemma has been the team’s toughest opponent thus far. It has gotten to the point when fans and even people who claim (I use that term loosely) to know the game can figure out that the team is better off winning a game in regulation.

After Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, it’s been slim pickings for coach Joel Quenneville. Marion Hossa, Brandon Saad, Patrick Sharp, who needs to start...
