Blackhawks shut out by the Coyotes 2-0

The Blackhawks finished up their west coast road trip being shut out. The Hawks have not had this happen to them in nearly two years. They do end their road trip coming away with eight of a possible twelve points as they now either head to Sochi to represent their Olympic teams or take the next couple of weeks off.

The Hawks were without the talents of Patrick Kane who was back in Buffalo helping his family with arrangements for  the passing of his grandfather. Thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Kane family.

If there was a strange number 12 in the Indianhead sweater it was that of newly acquired forward Peter Regin who in this game was centering the second line pri...

Blackhawks play their last game before the Olympics against the Coyotes

The Blackhawks (35-10-14) are continuing their road trip, exiting California after grabbing 5 out of 6 potential points against the three Californian teams. Next, they’re headed to Phoenix to face the Coyotes (26-20-10). The Hawks and Coyotes faced each other twice already in the regular season, with Chicago getting the W both times, once in the shootout and once in regulation.

 

The Blackhawks will be without Patrick Kane for this contest, who’s flown back to Buffalo for family matters and will miss the team’s last g...

Hawks head home after beating the Coyotes 5-2

In the final game of the Hawks long circus trip the team could not have asked for a better way to turn the page and close out the long road excursion. They may have started the trip wrong in Denver but closed solid in Phoenix. The game also was the second start for back up rookie goalie Antti Raanta and he did not disappoint.

For the first time this year, the Jobing Com Arena was completely sold out and of course there was a sea of red Indianhead jerseys a sight to the delight for Hawks fan back in Chicago. The Blackhawks fans were treated to the Hawks coming out of the gates flying as they utterly dominated the first period. 

Before the period was half over the Hawks wer...

Blackhawks beat Phoenix in shootout; re-acquire Kris Versteeg from FLA

Thursday night's game versus the Coyotes was certainly very entertaining.

The Blackhawks opened the scoring early, with Brandon Saad shoveling in a rebound at 2:37 in the first. Patrick Sharp would follow that up with a power play goal less than four minutes later to make it 2-0 Chicago.

Phoenix would break on to the score sheet just 41 seconds later, when a shot by Michael Stone was accidentially tipped by Chicago's Brandon Pirri to make it 2-1. The Coyotes would tie up the game with a power play goal by Shane Doan.

Marian Hossa scored to make it 3-2 Blackhawks, 5:05 into the second period. Chicago held on to the lead for most of the third until L...

Bad Penalty, Lack of Scoring Contribute to 2-1 Loss

Failure to capitalize on special teams, scoring just one goal and dreadful puck possession time doomed the Flyers as they fell to the Phoenix Coyotes, 2-1, on a rainy Friday night in Philadelphia.

To add an insult to injury, along with the loss, Flyers forward corps sustained a large blow by losing Scott Hartnell and Vincent Lecavalier, forcing both to leave the game.

According to General Manager Paul Holmgren, both will miss at least a week, and will both have MRIs tomorrow. Call-up opportunities remain to be seen, as the Adirondack Phantoms (AHL) were playing the Hartford Wolf Pack on this night as well.

Both Flyers power play units failed to score on multiple opportunities. Phoenix's suffocating defensive style under head coach Dave Tippett frustrated the Flyers all night long resulting in the power play going 0-for-4.

3 out of 4 ain't bad (but Isles want more)

The New York Islanders collected three out of four possible points in their first two games of the 2013-14 season. Although the team relinquished a 2-0 third period lead, the Isles have to feel great about themselves going into Tuesday’s match up with the Phoenix Coyotes.

Following the pomp and circumstance of the home opener, the Islanders took the ice with business as usual in mind. The mission: to build on their short lived playoff experience and move further, both literally and figuratively.

Coming out on Saturday, the team looked fast and explosive. They also looked like a confident bunch. Confidence is an integral part of their success this year and that could be the key to this whole equation.The New York Islanders collected three out of four possible points in their first two games of the 2013-14 season.

Hawks stumble in 3-2 Shootout loss

Coming into this game the Blackhawks had absolutely nothing to play for other than their pride and improving themselves and continuing a seven game winning streak. The Phoenix Coyotes on the other hand were fighting for their playoff lives and had everything to play for.

The Blackhawks have to be commended for their character and focus. Everyone knows these games mean nothing to them and are really just glorified practices since they clinched their division and conference. They still managed to gain a point and come from behind to tie the game up and push the game to overtime and eventually the shoot out.

The Blackhawks still played a solid d...

The two teams met in the West Conference finals last May and despite playing only one game this season are familiar with one another. Fast physical games are common place and tonight’s game will provide intensity with the Kings trying to keep their moment...
