Hawks Fly Out For Circus

Hawks Fly Out For Circus

The Blackhawks head out for a six game road trip as the circus comes to the United Center as of last night until the end of next weekend. The Blackhawks open their trip up in Alberta tonight against the Calgary Flames who beat the Hawks in overtime at the UC back in the middle of October. The Flames have been […]

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. The Blackhawks – after losing the first two […]

Black Hawk Down

Black Hawk Down

The league’s highest scoring offense will be without their top scorer for the remainder of the season. Patrick Kane suffered a leg injury a few games back after Brendan Morrow landed on him in the Hawk’s win last Wednesday. While the severity of the injury is still up in the air, losing a player like Kane will almost certainly have […]

Brow Wow!

Brow Wow!

Chicago’s Anthony Davis poured in 40 points and hauled in 21 rebounds on way to the Pelicans one-point overtime win over the Boston Celtics. Davis, who’s nicknamed the “Brow” for his patented unibrow, was an all-everything at Perspective Charter and would go on to be the top-rated player in the United States before deciding to attend the University of Kentucky […]

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 […]

Wicked Weekend For Hawks!

Wicked Weekend For Hawks!

Tonight starts a vicious two-game weekend series as the Hawks host the best team in hockey followed by a rematch of the Stanley Cup Finals when Boston comes to town on Championship Sunday. The game was originally scheduled for 2PM, but because the Patriots are playing on Sunday NBC doesn’t want the NHL to compete with the NFL so they […]

Blackhawks at the Quarter Pole

Blackhawks at the Quarter Pole

The NHL season is roughly 20 games in and again the Chicago Blackhawks have established themselves as one of the top teams in the league. The Blackhawks currently have 32 points through 21 games and are tied with the Ducks for best in the Western Conference.  Last night the Hawks played particularly well in thrashing the Sharks 5-1.  Heading into the […]

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 […]

Scoring on Backstrom, which should happen a lot starting tonight

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 […]
