Chicago forward Jonathan Toews might still be a little bitter about the 2011 NHL playoffs. The Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated from the playoffs in the first round after seven games against the Vancouver Canucks. Chicago fell in a huge 0-3 hole, but mounted an impressive comeback to force a seventh game. Vancouver won Game 7 in OT, sending them through and sending Chicago home.  Prior to Chicago's 2013 Stanley Cup Finals against Boston, Toews was asked how he felt watching Boston hoist the Cup in 2011. His response?  #Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews on watching the #Bruins hoist the Cup in 2011: "Mostly, I was just glad Vancouver didn't win." — Mark Lazerus (@MarkLazerus) June 11, 2013 That's a pretty blunt answer, isn't it? You can't really blame Toews for his response. It's doubtful any Blackhaws fans, let alone the players on the team, have forgotten that Game 7 loss. Game 7s are games that stick with you for eter...

City cuts Blackhawks fan's 'Playoff Lawn'

Bollig may replace Stalberg

Viktor Stalberg knows why he might not get to play when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night.

Blackhawks Defenseman Duncan Keith Grew Up a Bruins Fan, Idolized Ray Bourque

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith is from Winnipeg, so you might think that he would have grown up in the early to mid-90s as a fan of the Jets — these Jets, of course. However, a young Keith grew up rooting for a team that played its hockey almost 2,000 miles away. Now, as a 29-year-old blue liner in the NHL, Keith will have to go through the team he grew up rooting for...

Chicago Blackhawks fan Frank Miller has come up with an idea for those fans who cannot show up to work rocking a playoff beard.

Blackhawks Respect, Aware of Bruins’ Ability Despite Any Potential Unfamiliarity With B’s

The Bruins and Blackhawks haven’t played each other since Oct. 15, 2011, but that doesn’t mean the Hawks aren’t aware of what the Bruins are capable of doing. The last time these two teams met was just five months to the date that the Bruins won the 2011 Stanley Cup, and when they finally meet again it will be for the 2013 Stanley Cup.
