We’ve Only Just Begun

We’ve Only Just Begun

If you didn’t already know, then you must certainly be aware by now that the Stanley Cup Playoffs is as grueling on the spectators as it is on the players. Last night’s 2OT thriller won by Duncan Keith was the first game of the series, and it took nearly four hours to complete while keeping most midwesterners up way past […]

Finals Rematch Dud!

Finals Rematch Dud!

Tonight’s Stanley Cup Finals rematch in Boston didn’t have the caché that it should have given the absence of Chicago’s Bryan Bickell and Patrick Kane but it was a pretty boring game regardless. The Bruins scored in the first period to take a 1-0 lead and after a quiet second Boston scored two goals in a mere 13 seconds to […]

Hawks Drown Ducks!

Hawks Drown Ducks!

The Hawks nabbed an impressive victory last night by defeating the Ducks of Anaheim by a final of 4-2.  Marian Hossa scored twice to lead the Hawks and Corey Crawford made 19 saves on 21 shots including a dandy on Anaheim’s Corey Perry who had the puck on his stick right in front of the crease just before the end of the […]

Hawks Stumble Again

Hawks Stumble Again

Last night’s Blackhawks game was another frustrating effort for both coaches and players as they fell to the St. Louis Blues in regulation with less then 30 seconds to go. Last year the Blackhawks didn’t incur their first regulation loss until game 25 in Colorado. This year they couldn’t last a week and now that they’ve dropped two in a […]

Bruins Bring Madness to a Halt

Bruins Bring Madness to a Halt

The Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks have now traded games in which the other team should’ve won. In Game 1 superstar David Krejčí had two assists and gave his team a 2-0 advantage. That lead evolved into an eventual 3-1 lead with less than 14 minutes to go in the game. The Bruins offense was clicking and the Blackhawks had […]

Blackhawks Need to Cut to the Quick and Shoot High

Blackhawks Need to Cut to the Quick and Shoot High

Jonathan Quick remains undefeated over the postseason at the Staples Center.  Going into Game 4 at home his unbeaten status there stands at 15 in the playoffs.  Quick’s remarkable performance is doing nothing to damage his growing reputation as the best goaltender in the world.  He almost singlehandedly beat the Blackhawks to introduce the Kings to the win column in this semifinal series.   The Kings were […]

Blackhawks Begin Quest For Cup Against Wild

Please someone wake me when it’s the conference finals. Who’s gonna stop these Blackhawks, and if someone does they are still the best team in the world. I don’t care what anyone says, this schedule was just brutalized by the Blackhawks and it’s not worth parsing the numbers to expain the Blackhawks’ domination this year because the only thing that matters is the […]

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 […]

Has had a tremendous season thus far (9-0-3, !.46, .943)

BlackHawks Roll On, Leaving Detroit’s Wheels Spinning

With Sunday afternoon’s close shave that took over two hours in Detroit, the Chicago BlackHawks have practically assured themselves of the best record in hockey for this shortened season. With 2:02 remaining in regulation, Patrick Kane scored on a powerplay by roofing a shot past Jimmy Howard to force the game into OT where Kaner’d eventually end it with a clever shootout goal.  Corey Crawford […]

Hawks’ Streak Alive at 20 Games – Columbus Tonight Then…(gulp)…RED WINGS!

Last night’s win over the St. Louis Blues was as solid a game as the Hawks could’ve hoped for on the road.  It was slightly marred by a first-period injury to Cory Crawford that forced him to an early exit.  Just a minor speed bump in the scheme of things.  Toews scored on the opening rush of the game and the team then […]
