After a game in which Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford played remarkably well and in all likelihood prevented the Minnesota Wild from absolutely kicking the **** out Chicago by a score of 7-2 or something in that range Corey, again, is the blame by many NHL fans and media. Why not blame the [...]

As news continues to trickle down the pipeline about Comcast SportsNet Chicago reporter Susannah Collins' dismissal, the latest bit of news from the Chicago Tribune could set an ugly precedent for the future. According to the Tribune and reporter Robert Channick, a letter from Chicago Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz apparently played a role in Collins' dismissal.
I’m sure we all remember the CSN Chicago reporter Susannah Collins from a few weeks ago when she slipped up on camera and said that the Chicago Blackhawks had ‘tremendous amounts of sex‘ this season. We won’t get the chance to see any other potential slip ups because apparently she has been fired by CSN.
Denying that it had anything to do with her slip up on air, CSN...
You're kidding me, right?
Is there anything that Patrick Kane cannot do on the ice rink?
Just when you thought you'd seen his personal best goals, passes, and shootout wizardry, PK re-invents himself right before our very eyes.
Watch #88 on this beauty of a goal. Surrounded by four Wild defenders, Kane fakes shot, then finds Patrick Sharp with the spin-o-rama pass...
The Chicago Blackhawks made no mistake about who they are and who the Wild are last night, coming out and completely dominating the Wild while cruising to a 5-2 victory to lead the series 2 games to none. The Hawks showed that Game 1 was not the rule for how this series would go, but rather, perhaps, the exception.
Part of the problem is that our top line is tasked with shutting...
from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,
While even coach Joel Quenneville was noticeably curt in his post-game interview (Asked how the Hawks could improve their power play, his response was as succinct as it could be: "Shoot."), Toews typically was soft-spoken, resolute and spot-on, especially when it came to the obvious storyline of the game -- the Wild's...
Emotions are running pretty high in Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference quarterfinals between the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild. Towards the end of the first period there was a little scrum behind the Blackhawks goal and the two that were going at it were Andrew Shaw from the Blackhawks and Devin Setoguchi of the Wild.
Setoguchi came around the goal and made contact with...
The win puts the Wild down 1-2 in their series with the Chicago Blackhawks.
There was a lot of "Good News/Bad News" in the Chicago Blackhawks chatter in the past few weeks.
The Good News: First in the West, won Presidents Cup, and the team is trending up.
The Bad News: Emery's hurt. Continue reading "Crawford Proving the Naysayers Wrong"
Both of the afternoon games yesterday followed a similar pattern. We had two 1 vs. 8 matchups with the lower seed vastly outplaying the higher ranked team and both games going to overtime. The difference between the two games is unlike the Islanders, the Wild actually got rewarded for their efforts and were able to finish off the Blackhawks in overtime to stay alive in the series...
If I had to pick a series that was going to be the most lopsided, the Western Conference's 1 vs. 8 matchup between the Wild & Blackhawks would probably be at the top of my list. As I mentioned in my playoff preview, the Hawks are superior to the Wild in just about every category and should be able to handle them in at least five games. The Wild managed to push Chicago to...
