Wake Me When It’s May

Wake Me When It’s May

The Blackhawks blew a three goal lead last night, lost to their arch rival the St. Louis Blues in front of the whole country, are currently in sixth place in the Central Division, don’t have their Conn Smythe Defenseman for the foreseeable future, and none of it matters. Patrick Kane just as of today saw his rape case not get […]

Blackhawks Are Back!

Blackhawks Are Back!

It took six games for the Blackhawks to assert themselves as the defending Stanley Cup Champions, but after yesterdays dismissal of the St. Louis Blues at the United Center there’s no doubt that the Blackhawks should by all accounts return to the Stanley Cup Finals for a rematch with the Boston Bruins.

Feeling Blue

Tonight the Blackhawks get their fourth and final regular-season shot at the St. Louis Blues. The Blackhawks are currently 0-1-2 against the Blues and trail them by eight points in the Central Division with one less game to play. In plain English the Blackhawks would like to save face on national television against their staunchest opponent this season. Tonight is considered “Rivalry […]

Blackhawks Fall to 2nd

Blackhawks Fall to 2nd

Perhaps I overreached by anointing the Blackhawks as the automatic Western Conference Champions this year.   Certainly the Hawks are a great team.  As a transplanted Bostonian, I’m only halfway through a 12-step recovery program to cope with Game 6 of the Finals last year.  But it appears as though the Hawks’ flaws are manifesting themselves and now they’ve dropped to second place in the Central Division. They lost in OT last night at […]

The Bulls and Cavs are interdivisional rivals and they completed the biggest trade in the NBA this season. The Bulls sent Luol Deng to the Cavs for C Andrew Bynum and three draft picks.

Hawks-Blues Could Get Ugly Tonight

Hawks-Blues Could Get Ugly Tonight

This Chicago Blackhawks host the St. Louis Blues tonight at the UC and in doing so will try to enact revenge from their only regulation loss of the season to date. If you recall last week the Blackhawks were beaten with less then a minute to go by a slap shot from the point.  Since then the Blackhawks have shrugged off the loss […]

Blackhawks Win By Losing

Blackhawks Win By Losing

Only a week ago the Blackhawks were the greatest team to lace up skates and there was no doubt the Western Conference was theirs for the taking. Now comes a rough weekend of two consecutive losses and the distraction of a record run ended. It’s not simply that they lost, it’s that they lost by giving up 12 goals over […]
