This team seems to love the big stage and seems to play their best hockey with their backs up against the wall. Last...

VIDEO: Patrick Kane Shows Off Dazzling Stick Handling, Scores Goal

There are no words to describe Patrick Kane’s stick handling. The words amazing, dazzling, jaw-dropping and impressive don’t do it justice. He once again showed off his incredible skills during game 6 between the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks in the second period. Because words can’t possibly describe Kane’s ability let’s go straight to the video. Enjoy. That gave...

Blackhawks have some trouble counting

The Chicago Blackhawks have had a lot of trouble counting in the playoffs. Numerous times (five, to be exact) the Blackhawks have had too many men on the ice. The noteworthy part here, aside from the fact they’ve been guilty so many times, is the fact that most of these aren’t even close. Take this example from Game 6 against the Ducks: why can't this team count pic.twitter...

Blame Joel Quenneville, Not Kimmo Timonen

I’ve already written about the failure of the Kimmo Timonen trade and the repercussions of his presence in the lineup once. While the piece predominately examined the analytic detriments of Timonen’s presence in the Blackhawks defensive rotation, what it failed to do was appropriately take into consideration the moral consequence of the 40-year old’s involvement in the Blackhawks...

Corey Crawford is the weakest link for the Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks find themselves up against the ropes in the Western Conference Finals against the Anaheim Ducks. The shorthanded Blackhawks’ team trails 3-2 in the series and will have to play some of their best hockey of the season in order to come back and win the series. Despite technically only playing four and a half defensemen, the Hawks have, for the most part, played...

Chicago Blackhawks unlikely comeback falls short

Before I could even settle in to watch the game, the Chicago Blackhawks were already down 3-0 and I was in complete dis-belief. In the most important game of the series, the Hawks came out flatter than a coke sitting in my garage for a couple years. The Blackhawks literally could not do anything in this all-important Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. And then I remembered...

Toews, Teravainen shine, but Blackhawks fall short in Game 5 overtime loss

Jonathan Toews has grown out of the ‘Captain Serious’ given to him early on in his hockey career. He’s evolved into ‘Captain Clutch’ now.

Matt Beleskey is sick of the Chicago Blackhawks

Rivalries and enemies are made during the NHL playoffs. While it’s probably premature to call the Blackhawks and the Ducks rivals, the two teams certainly don’t like each other very much. Just ask Anaheim’s Matt Beleskey. Immediately following the Ducks’ Game 4 OT loss, Beleskey commented on his distaste for the Blackhawks, as seen in the OC Register. “I’m sick of them...

Re-Signing Brandon Saad Will Be Much More Complicated Than Blackhawks Think

Brandon Saad has achieved feats considered impossible for most during his tenure as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks. Drafted out of relative obscurity and dropped into a cesspool of superstar talent, the 2011 second round pick and pending restricted free agent has defied all expectation by emerging into one of the cornerstones of the Blackhawks organization.
