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.
Team F**KUP -- Colorado Avalanche
It was that painful! Chicago really felt at home in Chicago as it is clear that the fans will not boo (the sound system cannot drown that out). Even with the Marian Hossa injury, Chicago coasted to an easy 5-2 win at the Pepsi Center. There was no intimidation and little defensive fortitude. At times, you had to just sit there and wonder how long will the coach and GM in Colorado will last. Sacco and Sherman have to be on death's door or damn close. The lazy decision making and poor team defense has to be a killer for a team with some offensive pop....

Nick Leddy was born on March 20, 1991, making him 22 years old today. He’ll skate in his 158th career NHL game this evening in Anaheim, and has 56 points (10 goals, 46 assists) already on his NHL resume. It … Continue reading →The post Happy Birthday, Nick Leddy appeared first on Committed Indians.
If you missed the Chicago Blackhawks play the Dallas Stars on Saturday night, then you missed an 8-1-blowout victory for Chicago, and one of the prettiest goals you will ever see in hockey. Patrick Kane has undoubtedly been the Blackhawks MVP this year, leading his team (and most of the league) in points, and pulling ridiculous moves like this Spin-O-Rama backhander. Filthy. Just...
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).

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.
Ray Emery stopped 17 shots to remain unbeaten this season, Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists, and Chicago held off Colorado 5-2 on Monday night in the first meeting since the Avalanche halted the Blackhawks' record points streak.
Jimmy Hayes and Andrew Shaw scored 57 seconds apart in the first period, Brent Seabrook contributed another and Jonathan Toews added a late insurance...
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...

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...
Games like this rarely happened when you played the Chicago Blackhawks
People always love nostalgia. For hockey and video game lovers, one item that gives many that feeling of nostalgia is NHL 94 which was released in 1993.
Now, I was the ripe age of three when this game came out, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t spend a bulk of my childhood playing this game. In fact, aside...

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...
A 24-game point streak and franchise-best 11-game winning streak have highlighted a record-setting start for the Chicago Blackhawks, and they find themselves rolling again as their road trip comes to a close.
That success has overshadowed the surging Anaheim Ducks, who seem just as much the Stanley Cup contender as Chicago.
Anaheim has won a team-record 12 straight home games and...
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.
