Hawks look to steal game 5 in St. Louis

Wipe the slate clean everything that has gone on in this tremendously well played series is now even. The series is now a best of three with each team having an equal chance to win the series or do they?

The Blackhawks definitely have the momentum thanks to Patrick Kane’s magic in OT in game 4 to pull the Hawks even in the series. There is a huge difference between having the series tied at two games apiece and being down three to one in the series. If the Hawks keep the momentum rolling in St. Louis they could skate away with a road win that they need to advance to the next round.

You have to think that with the Blues being up in games 2-0 like they were last year again...

2013/14 Playoffs- Week 1 Recap

We’re officially a week into the 2013/14 NHL playoffs and we’ve already seen our share of overtime dramatics, borderline hits, curious officiating, and Pierre McGuire. While every series has seen at least 3 games played, now is a good time to check in on what we’ve learned through week 1 of the dance and what we should expect over the next week.

Hawks back in series, shutout the Blues 2-0

Corey Crawford at the end of game 2 in St. Louis in his post game presser said he needed to be better and on this night he was a man of his word he was spectacular. In his first NHL playoff career shutout Crawford stopped 34 shots on the Hawks net. Corey Crawford won this game for the Hawks.

Besides Crawford being excellent in net the Hawks broke a bad habit as well, giving up goals late in games to push to overtime. On this night the Hawks not only did not give up the lead late the game actually ended in regulation time.

The scoring got started in the first period in what would have to be called a soft goal given up by Ryan Miller. Jonathan Toews shot the puck through Miller ...

Blackhawks at the Blues - Game 1 preview

Although it's been twelve years since they faced each other as playoff foes, the Blues and the Blackhawks are very familiar with one another as long-time division rivals since 1970. There is a hatred between these two teams that runs deep between the fan bases, and games between them are always snarling, hard-hitting affairs. The St. Louis Blues had a rough ending to their regular season - becoming riddled with injuries, and going 3-7-0 in their last ten games. Their six-game losing streak to close out the season dropped them to second in the Central behind the Avalanche. But by no means should the Blackhawks assume that their first-round opponent will be anything less than their trad...

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 come up short in shoot out 6-5 to Blues

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...

Blackhawks lose to Blues 3-2 in St. Louis

To judge from the talk that swirled around this game before the puck dropped, you would've thought that it was the first round of the playoffs.

It's good to remember that it's still early in the season, but the game atmosphere in St. Louis tonight was definitely highly-charged. The home crowd was loud; the on-ice energy intense.

Vladimir Tarasenko opened the scoring first, putting the Blues on the board 15:44 into the first period.

The Blackhawks would even things up with a power play goal just 75 seconds later by Patrick Kane, giving him his third goal in as many games.

Chicago's fortunes have nearly reversed on the PK and PP th...

Blackhawks travel to St. Louis for first road game of season

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...
