Hawks grounded by Jets 4-2

The Blackhawks came into this game well rested and the Jets came in off of a game the night before in Dallas yet it was the Jets that again had more energy and out worked the Hawks to skate away with their third win this year at the United Center.

The Winnipeg Jets have take six point from the Hawks and are now only two points behind them in the Central Division. Somehow the Hawks are going to have to figure this team out or hope they don’t meet them in the playoffs.

The game started off in the first period with the feel of a playoff game to be sure. There was plenty of intensity with a very physical first period.

The Hawks started the scoring on a Brandon Saad bac...

Blackhawks kick off vital January point stretch with game vs Stars

The Blackhawks (25-11-2, 52 pts, 1st/Central) welcome the Dallas Stars (17-14-5, 39 pts, 6th/Central) to the United Center on Sunday night at 7pm; the game will be broadcast on NBCSN nationally, and WGN in Chicago.

Chicago will be coming off its disappointing loss in the Winter Classic vs the Capitals; the Stars have a Saturday night game versus the Wild at home. Prior to Saturday's game, the Stars are on a 3-game win streak.

Finnish phenom Teuvo Teräväinen was called up from the Rockford IceHogs after a hand injury took Kris Versteeg out of the lineup in the Winter Classic. Teräväinen has 6 goals and 17 assists in 33 games for the IceHogs this season.

A closer look at Leddy's departure

We all knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make the parting any easier.  The Hawks finally got under the salary cap ceiling by dealing defenseman Nick Leddy and goaltender Kent Simpson to the New York Islanders in exchange for prospects TJ Brennan, Ville Pokka, and the rights to goalie Anders Nilsson.  The trade helped out both teams, as it successfully gave the Hawks some cap room while helping New York upgrade their blue line, but who really won this deal?

Blackhawks make first return to Boston since Cup win

The last time that the Blackhawks skated on Boston ice, it was a hot day in late June, hoisting the Stanley Cup triumphantly over their heads.

Perhaps there is no better time for the Blackhawks to return to TD Bank Garden for the first time this season. Those memories will be as strong and fresh as they were nine months ago. Most of those Cup-winning players returned to the team; although a few are now gone. For example, Dave Bolland, the "17 seconds" game-winning scorer, was traded to Toronto.

While the Blackhawks returned from the summer mostly intact, the Bruins underwent more than a face lift. Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverly, and with Ryan Button, were se...

Hawks down Stars on 'Teuvo Tuesday'

After a flat performance on Sunday against the Predators, the Hawks came out with a purpose and put away a 4-2 win against a Dallas Stars team desperate for points as the playoff race continues.  Corey Crawford was sharp in the win with 25 saves.

 

The buzz around the UC was that Teuvo Teravainen would be making his NHL debut.  He would get a cheer from the crowd on his first shift, and while he didn’t earn any points in his debut, he made a c...

Hawks shutout against division rivals Preds; fall in Central division standings

The Hawks have had trouble with the Nashville Predators all season, and after a reassuring win against the Hurricanes on Friday, went back to square one in a shutout loss agains their division rivals.  Pekka Rinne would make 29 saves in a lackluster effort by Chicago, who’s inconsistent play is becoming more concerning as the playoffs approach.  The loss dropped Chicago six points behind the division-leading Blues, who earned two more points today in a win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Blackhawks drop 3-2 loss to Avs in final season match-up

In their last meeting of the regular season, both the Blackhawks and Avalanche came out flying.

Duncan Keith had the first penalty of the game, a roughing call in front of the Blackhawks' net. The Avalanche put plenty of pressure in Chicago's end, but despite a handful of shots, the closest they got was a goalpost.

Brad Malone put the Avalanche on the board first with 1:36 left in the first, with a sharp-angle shot. Matt Duchene would stretch the lead to 2-0 just 19 seconds into the second period.

Patrick Kane would get the Blackhawks on the board after dancing through the Colorado zone and flipping the puck over Varlamov's shoulder to make it ...

Teravainen leads Finland to gold; Hawks prospects make splash at WJC

 

The 2014 World Juniors hockey championship has come to a close, and when the dust cleared it was the underdog Finns walking home with the gold, Sweden taking silver and Russia ousting Canada for the bronze.  The tournament, which took place in Malmo, Sweden, featured several Hawks prospects, and provided a possible glimpse of the future for Chicago’s team.  

 

The top prospect of the tournament for the Hawks was Teuvo Teravainen, the Hawks first-round pic...

The Pirri Predicament: Does he stay or go?

 

The Situation:

Ever since the Hawks won the Stanley Cup in 2010, the role of second line center has been a well-documented void that needs to be filled.  Patrick Sharp, who filled the role during the run, was moved to wing in 2011, and since then the Hawks have had a parade of centers attempting to fill the role, including  Marcus Kruger, Dave Bolland, and Patrick Kane.  While Michael Handzus seems to be the semi-permanent solution for now, the question remains if he will be able to keep up his strong play as age and injuri...

Chicago Blackhawks open their training camp at Notre Dame

After one of the shortest off-seasons in pro sports history, the Chicago Blackhawks are opening their training camp on the road.

Spending a lot of time on the road early in the abbreviated 2013 season didn't seem to hurt the Blackhawks; after all, they not only set a league record to open the season, but went on to win both the President's Trophy and the Stanley Cup. The players seem eager to prove that this year, there will be no "Stanley Cup hangover".

With a shortened summer and just a few days before pre-season games get underway, having training camp at Notre Dame allows the team to focus on camp without the distractions of home, and allows for the ...
