LA Kings @ Chicago Blackhawks
2:30PM Central/12:30 Pacific
United Center, Chicago
This one has all the earmarks of a trap game.
The Hawks are riding high in confidence, coming off a 4-1 thrashing of a top conference rival. On paper, they ook vastly superior to today's opponent. However, said opponent happens to be the defending S...

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook took a slap shot to the groin during the first period of Sunday's game at the United Center against the Los Angeles Kings. Seabrook positioned himself to block the shot from defenseman Drew Doughty during a Kings power play and took the puck to "the midsection". Seabrook was taken right to the Blackhawks dressing room but...
The Chicago Blackhawks stayed on top of the NHL with a strong victory on Friday night. Chicago showed San Jose and the rest of the league why they have yet to lose a game in regulation through 14 games once … Continue reading →The post In Focus: Blackhawks Forward Depth Making An Impact appeared first on Committed Indians.
Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook is a shot blocking specialist and is always among the league leaders. Unfortunately for him, when he went out to block Drew Doughty’s shot during their game against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday, he took that shot right to nuts. Don’t let the Doc Emerick and Eddie Olczyk fool you, they kept saying midsection, but they were merely...
from Tim Sassone of the Chicago Daily-Herald,
Here's how the Blackhawks are looking at their improbable 12-0-3 record after 15 games: It's not how you start but how you finish — as in winning the Stanley Cup.
By defeating the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Sunday at the United Center, the Hawks have gained at least 1 point in 15 straight games to begin the season, leaving...
Proving that he will do anything to help the Chicago Blackhawks win Brent Seabrook took one in the groin on Sunday. Seebrook was able to return to the game.
It’d be tough to say that the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings are still the NHL’s best team. On Sunday, the Chicago Blackhawks defeated them for the second time this season (2-0). Just like they did on January 19th, the Blackhawks dominated most of the game against the Kings on national television, looking like the all-around better team with the nation’s eyes...
Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says goaltender Corey Crawford will start Sunday against the Detroit Red Wings.
Crawford left his last game with an upper-body injury. He played in only the first period of Thursday night's win at St. Louis. Ray Emery relieved Crawford against the Blues and finished off a 3-0 shutout.
Quenneville insists Crawford's latest injury...
Joe Thornton vs. Jonathan Toews. In a hockey fight. Let me repeat that for you. Joe Thornton vs. Jonathan Toews in a hockey fight. How rare is that? IT’S REAL F-ING RARE.
Toews had, until last night, just two fights in the NHL. TWO. Let me repeat, Jonathan Toews had just two fights in the NHL until last night when he instigated Joe Thornton (his NHL fight card).
Both are captains...
It’s not often that you see two superstars pair off to go at it with each other, but that’s exactly what happened on Friday night when the Chicago Blackhawks took on the San Jose Sharks. Sharks captain Joe Thornton has 26 fights under his belt now, and this gives Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews three total fights for his career. Toews was incensed the entire shift and was...
The Chicago Blackhawks are off to an incredible start. After 14 games they are yet to suffer a loss in regulation. They have scored 19 goals more than they have allowed. A big part of their success is the play of Jonathan Toews. He is a great two-way player and my pick for the Selke Trophy at this point.
While playing on the league's top team he is clearly a step...
The Chicago Blackhawks had already extended their NHL-record point streak once they got to overtime with the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets.
With one standings point already in the bag, the high-flying Blackhawks snagged the other one, too.
Brent Seabrook finished off a 2-on-1 rush at 3:23 of overtime to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 win over the banged-up Blue Jackets and stretch their...
I think Toews feels Thornton embellished the call a bit.
Both received 5 for fighting, Toews received 2 for boarding and 2 for unsportsmanlike conduct, probably starting a fight with a visor on.
With that tilt, former Fighting Sioux forward Jonathan Toews has been in three fights during his professional career. I guess that's why he wears the "C" and I have to tip my hate the Blackhawks center. Joe Thornton has been known to drop the gloves a little more frequently.
