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 […]

Blackhawks Shop Locally at Draft

Blackhawks Shop Locally at Draft

I realize the draft was three days ago, but I continue to reflect on the Blackhawks as they churn and burn as the NHL’s premier franchise. After beating the Bruins in 6 games, the Blackhawks decided to take their freshly-minted best-of-class status to the Prudential Center in New Jersey to pick players who could improve a Stanley Cup winner.

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 […]

Blackhawks Running Wild Atop the NHL

We’re 12 games into the season and the Hawks have just come off a thoroughly impressive 4-0-2 road trip and have compiled 22 points out of a possible 24 points.  Stunning on all counts, so much so that we are forced to recognize that the Hawks are effectively already enroute to the conference finals; anything else implies an implosion of some tragic […]
