Andrew Brunette and Patrick Kane scored power-play goals midway through the second period, and the Chicago Blackhawks rallied from an early deficit to win their season-high fourth straight game, 5-1 over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night.

Rostislav Olesz cleared waivers on Thursday morning and was sent to Rockford. In his place, the Blackhawks will reportedly recall Ben Smith from Rockford. Smith had 10 points (six goals, four assists) in nine games with the IceHogs this year. … Continue reading →
When the Blackhawks traded away Brian Campbell this summer and brought in Steve Montador, Sean O’Donnell and Sami Lepisto, the initial assumption was that Chicago would feel a drop-off on the offensive end of the ice. That couldn’t be further … Continue reading →
Last night the Blackhawks came into Vancouver and played their system perfectly and walked out with two points. The Blackhawks were the better team top to bottom last night and deserved to win. While the season's series is tied at 1-1, with the goals being even as well (7-7), the Canucks are delusional if they think they have been anywhere close to the Hawks this season. The...

We are almost a quarter of the way through the NHL season and the first place team in the league is the Chicago Blackhawks. They have a 12-7 record with three regulation tie points.

Some stories have an ending so clear that you know what they are well before they get there.
The Rostislav Olesz story was one, as most fans knew at this acquisition in the Brian Campbell trade that he would end up off the NHL roster -- be it in Rock Vegas or on another team. That's why a lot were clamoring to buy him out when it only would have cost the Hawks $700K. But they...
