Hockey is known by the fair weather fan for being a sport that is tough as nails and doesn't really care if the game stops so a pair of guys can fight while balancing on sharp blades. Maybe if those fans saw more of the grace and beauty of the game they would tune in for more than the fights (which they can just catch on Sportscenter or YouTube).
Like this play by Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane. You don't have to know much about hockey to be able to tell that this goal is as pretty as they come!
The last time I saw a spin move that good was:
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Already leading 7-1 on the Dallas Stars, Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane decided to put on a show. Coming down on a two-on-two he didn’t have much to do other than exactly what he did. He skated towards the middle of the ice acting like he was going to cut across the tops of the circles, then threw on the breaks and busted out a spin move and then fired the puck short...
Last night, the Chicago Blackhawks trounced the Dallas Stars by a score of 8-1 and Chicago star Patrick Kane put together one of the best goal of this shortened NHL season.
In the third period of play, Kane gained control of the puck and put together an impressive spin-o-rama backhanded goal for his 15th score of the season:
With revenge on their minds, the Blackhawks handled their business in Denver on Monday night. Patrick Kane had another dominant three-point night (one goal, two assists) leading the Hawks to victory. He also had three takeaways. Unfortunately, Kane spent a lot … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks Bury Avalanche appeared first on Committed Indians.

The Blackhawks followed the script last night in Denver.
Franchise figureheads Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews notched three-point nights. All four lines and the defense contributed in different ways and to varying degrees. Goalie Ray Emery was good enough to win.
Boom, a 5-2 win, bumping the Hawks' latest win streak to three games, all on the road...
The final score was 8-1, but the game wasn’t as close as the score would indicate. Five different Blackhawks had three points in the blowout: Bryan Bickell: 3 assists Viktor Stalberg: 3 assists Nick Leddy: 1 goal, 2 assists Patrick … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks Do Dallas, Win 8-1 appeared first on Committed Indians.
The Rockford Ice Hogs and the Chicago Wolves got into it pretty intensely on Sunday night very late in the third period. The Ice Hogs had a powerplay with 12.9 seconds left and with a 2-1 lead they were intent on letting the clock run out.
Ice Hogs forward Ben Smith was then hit through a door that wasn’t closed all the way by Guillaume Desbiens as they were taking the puck up...
Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa each scored twice in leading the Chicago Blackhawks to an 8-1 rout of the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.
Nick Leddy and Patrick Kane each had a goal and two assists as eight Blackhawks scored two or more points and Chicago boosted its road record to 12-1-2 with a dominant win on the second stop of a four-game road trip.
Corey Crawford made 18 saves...

When the Blackhawks lost two games in a row recently, the question naturally arose: is this a temporary blip or are they going to be merely mortal from here on out?
If last night's game, their second win in two games on the road, is any indication, the answer is: blip. And last night against Dallas, they looked as good or better than they have all year...
from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Could the Stars resort to personnel changes after an 8-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday _ the worst loss the team has suffered at American Airlines Center? Well, it seems at the very least we should be on alert.
After all, owner Tom Gaglardi was in the building. He brought his family down for the game from Vancouver and...

After breaking the Blackhawks' season opening points streak, the youthful Avs went on to lose 3 of their next 4.
The Hawks appear to be back on a role, even without top winger Patrick Sharp, destroying Dallas 8-1 Saturday night...
Earlier this month, the Colorado Avalanche ended the Chicago Blackhawks' historic season-opening run. While the Blackhawks have bounced back from a brief slide started by that setback, the Avalanche have failed to completely build on the victory from the last meeting.
Trying for a third consecutive win, the Blackhawks look to avenge their first regulation loss of 2013 and end...
In mid-February I picked Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks as the Selke Trophy leader. While he remains a strong candidate, I think there is a stronger Selke Trophy leader right now in Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins. Bergeron has a stronger +/- (adjusted or raw) while playing against a similar quality of competition with more penalty killing time.

This was an easy night for the F**K You Fantasy POTN because we only have one award winner. Yes it is rare but sometimes these things do happen. There is not much to this Monday night but we have one award winner and it was just too obvious and too embarrassing.
The Dallas Stars fell to 0-2-1 on their current four-game homestand and dropped to the .500 mark on the season after being on the receiving end of an 8-1 shellacking by the powerhouse Chicago Blackhawks at the American Airlines Center last night. If not for a couple point-blank early saves by Kari Lehtonen and a breakaway stop on Patrick Kane by Richard Bachman in the third period...
The last time the Blackhawks made the trip to the mile high city, the Colorado Avalanche handed them their first regulation loss of the season in a 6-2 thrashing. I know a lot of fans were disappointed in the loss, but in hindsight the Blackhawks were caught in a perfect storm.
The importance of this game means very little in the grand scheme of things. Colorado will not be making...
