It looks like one of the most historic teams in NHL...

Chicago Blackhawks: Momentum regained after break

After winning 12 games in a row, the Chicago Blackhawks slumped into the All-Star break losing three of their last four.

Video: Joel Quenneville loses it after blown call

Joel Quenneville has had some pretty infamous blowups on the bench. Remember the classic scene when he grabbed his nuts? His latest meltdown didn’t live up to those high standards, but his reaction to a disallowed goal against the Coyotes was a pretty good one. Coach Q has a point here.
