Blackhawks Defeat Sharks, Stay On Top Of The NHL

Despite a miserable early performance, the Blackhawks were able to dig out of a couple two-goal deficits in a wild first period. And this time, it was the team’s youngest players leading the way. Corey Crawford got off to a … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks Defeat Sharks, Stay On Top Of The NHL appeared first on Committed Indians.

Coyotes are hot, but Blackhawks are hotter

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Remember that fast start every NHL club talked about and dreamed about when the 113-day lockout ended and the 48-game sprint -- er, schedule -- was unveiled? Well, Chicago is the team everybody else was hoping to be. The Blackhawks have raced out to an NHL-best 8-0-2 record despite playing eight of their first 10 games on the road. They have not been beaten in...

John Jaeckel: Saad Scores; Hawks Win Again

Follow me @jaeckel Judging by the reaction (mostly from Blackhawk-operated entities) on social media, Hawk rookie Brandon Saad's first NHL goal ranks up there with Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Again, I have no issue with Saad at all. In fact, I am impressed with his tenacity and the relative speed with which he is adapting to the...

About Last Night…Kane Raises Hawks to 8-0-2 Start

Patrick Kane’s consecutive goals proved to be the difference-makers as Chicago broke a 3-3 tie and downed San Jose 5-3 last night in the game of the night. Each team scored three times in a wild first period but the defenses restored order after that and Kane was the only player to score in the final 40 minutes of the game. Johnathan Toews and Brent Seabrook each  had a pair of...

Flashback: Coyotes Raffi Torres hit on Blackhawks Hossa (video)

The Chicago Blackhawks Marian Hossa took a nasty illegal hit from the Phoenix Coyotes‘ Raffi Torres in last year’s NHL playoffs. The brutal  that left him motionless on the ice. As you can see after the jump, Torres left his feet for the hit so he’s likely going to face a suspension. He’s a repeat offender, so he could face 10 games. Brendan Shanahan suspended Torres before...

Andrew Desjardins’ match penalty rescinded by NHL

The NHL wasted no time in rescinding the match penalty handed out to Sharks forward Andrew Desjardins for his crushing open-ice hit on Jamal Mayers of the Blackhawks on Tuesday. As the rulebook states: “The Referee, at his discretion, may assess a match penalty if, in his judgment, the player attempted to or deliberately injured his opponent with an illegal check to the head....

Blackhawks-Sharks In Focus: Special Teams Will Play A Major Role

Both the Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks come into Tuesday night’s game struggling offensively. The Sharks have scored only six total goals in their last four games, leading to a 2-1-1 record (both wins coming in a shootout). Similarly, … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks-Sharks In Focus: Special Teams Will Play A Major Role appeared first on Committed Indians.

John Jaeckel: Hawks at Sharks Showdown Preview

Follow me @jaeckel Blackhawks at Sharks 10:30 PM Eastern/9:30 Central/7:30 Pacific HP Pavilion, San Jose, CA CSN (CHI and CA)/WGN Radio SCOUTING REPORT With the road-weary Hawks coming off an amazing goalie performance by Ray Emery in a 2-1 win Saturday in Calgary—and the Sharks taking their first regulation loss last night in Anaheim—the two teams who currently...

The Sharks’ missing Ds

The Sharks were missing a couple of Ds last night.  Both Jason Demers and Andrew Desjardins missed all or part of the game for no good reason.  Is it any surprise then, that the team allowed more goals against than they had all season?  The NHL rescinded the match penalty against Andrew Desjardins before the game even ended.  I'm sure the Blues know how the Sharks feel....

Cam Gore: Sharks get the shaft from the men in stripes

Sharks get the shaft from the men in stripes There were plenty of things in tonight’s game that were exciting, but the talk around the league will be the brutal call by the linesman on Andrew Desjardins which changed the momentum of this game. “The way the linesman saw it on the ice; he was convinced it was a major penalty. Unfortunately, he was wrong. It’s been...

Jamal Mayers vs. Raffi Torres

This is one of the things that I like about the NHL. The players sort things out on the ice and settle things like men. Last season, during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Raffi Torres steam rolled Marian Hossa with a dirty and dangerous hit. Hossa suffered a concussion and Torres was suspended for 25 games. Torres appealed the suspension, and the NHL reduced his...

Playing it too safe: NHL refs changing games by overreacting to big hits

By now, if you're a fan of hockey in the slightest, you've noticed a glaring initiative by officials to protect the game's players. Concussion awareness and player safety have been hot-button issues for years ever since devastating injuries to Marc Savard and Sidney Crosby. But as hard as the league has been coming down on players for hitting players in defenseless...
