There has been little to complain about this year for the Hawks except maybe their intra division record. Their record against the central is pedestrian at 9-6-2. They had a chance to change that facing their nearest divisional rival the St. Louis Blues and seemed to have things in hand but let it slip away.
In a game that coach Quenneville will not be happy losing, he can take consolation that the Blackhawks were able to at least get a point. Still the Blackhawks and their coaches need to solve the Blues if they want a return engagement with Lord Stanley’s Cup.
The Blues also had several key players out of their lineup which should have worked in the Hawks favor. It did...
Today we profile an individual who had a very successful career in the NHL and could very well become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. This is a two time Stanley Cup champion and former Islanders captain Bill Guerin.
After just two games in the first eight days of the season, the Blackhawks are finally getting into the "full speed ahead" part of their schedule, starting with their first road game on Wednesday night.
The Blues have started their season well, with a 4-2 win over the Predators and a 7-0 romp over the Panthers. St. Louis would like to extend that streak to three games with a win versus long-time rival Chicago.
With the shutout versus Florida, Jaroslav Halak became the Blues' franchise all-time leader in SOs, taking the title from Glenn Hall, a record that stood for 42 years. With 17 shutouts - a feat accomplished in just 123 games over the past four sea...
The Flames will face a familiar foe tonight when they head into St. Louis to face Jay Bouwmeester and the Blues. It will be the first time the Flames will face-off against Bouwmeester since the Flames traded him to the Blues on April 1st, in exchange for Mark Cundari, goaltender Reto Berra and now their 1st round pick in this June’s draft.
As the Blackhawks faced another division opponent and another team desperate for points to make the playoffs, it was the Hawks that remained standing at the bell. Coming into the game it was the St. Louis netminder Brian Elliott who was coming into the game with a shutout streak but the Hawks not only answered they pitched a shutout for themselves.
Corey Crawford gets the shutout but the entire team played solid defense in front of him. It’s not that the Hawks didn’t make mistakes it’s that they covered for each other when they got in trouble and continue to improve their team game that is impressive.
The Flames return home from their three-game road trip, which saw their winless streak away from the Dome reach nine games (0-8-1).

The St. Louis Blues will finish off back-to-back games after defeating the Oilers 3-0 last night in Edmonton
The Flames get ready to play their 8th home game of the season as the St. Louis Blues come to town for the first of three meetings between the two clubs. The Flames did not fare well against the Blues last season as they lost three of their four meetings, while only scoring a total of six goals.
The Kings (3-5-1; 8 points) have a quick turn around after a devastating 3-2 loss in Detroit when they head to St. Louis to take on the Blues (6-4-1; 13 points) tonight at 5. The Kings have dropped their past two games and are 1-3 entering the final leg of their road trip. After a red hot start the Blues are on a four game skid earning only one point. St. Louis lost Saturday night 6-5 (SO) to Anaheim and hope to end their four game home stand on a positive note.
The Kings offensive woes continued in Detroit when they registered a season high 47 shots against Robby Howard only converting two for goals. St. Louis has allowed 22 goals in the past four games with a suspect ...
