First, credit to the Red Wings. They showed up and brought their legs. The Hawks weren't readyâor at least weren't ready for what the Wings threw at them.
The Hawks could have used more speed, snarl and a little less waiting for the pretty play to develop.

Just a few things that caught my eye:
Patrick Sharp is 31-3 this season. Yes, the Hawks have only lost three times with him in the lineup. Wow.
Moths to a light -- the Wings were puck focused all night long. That will change next game ... might not change the outcome by much, though.
Justin Abdelkader got in Dave Bolland's face at the mid-point of the...

SEASON SERIES — The Chicago Blackhawks swept Detroit in the season series (4-0-0) in 2013, outscoring the Red Wings 12-5 through four games, not including shootout goals credited for a win. Corey Crawford started all four games for the Blackhawks and Jimmy Howard started all four games for the Red Wings, but he was pulled in one of them. Although it seems like the Blackhawks blew...
Into the second round of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs we go, and what a treat it is to see two rivals and original six teams battling it out for a spot in the Western Conference Finals.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says forward Dave Bolland and goalie Ray Emery will be available for Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.
Bolland and Emery practiced on Saturday, and both said they were feeling better and hoping to play when Chicago gets back on the ice. They had been out with lower body injuries.

The Chicago Blackhawks could be without two players Thursday night for Game 5. Center Dave Bolland is doubtful with a pulled groin and Ray Emery is suffering from lower body pain. While they will miss Bolland, Emery is just an emergency backup for playoff games, so if he does miss the game it shouldn’t be a blow to the Chicago squad.

I know what you guys want. So here's the new rumor first.
Sort of a semi-vague rumor out of the East Coast this morning that the Hawks are talking to the Sabres about a possibly big deal involving (but not limited to) the following names: Dave Bolland, Viktor Stalberg, Steve Ott and Marcus Foligno.
After cross checking this rumor with a strong source...

The Columbus Blue Jackets have been playing very well lately and even took the league-best Chicago Blackhawks to a shootout on Thursday night. But, in order to get there, Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky had to make this awesome last-ditch effort stick save. Now Chicago Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland should have lifted the puck, but it was still a great effort by Bobrovsky...
Sergei Bobrovsky with an incredible save on Dave Bolland in OT tonight.
Blackhawks did win in the SO 2-1 but 'Bob' remained hot, stopping 39 shots.
Dave Bolland is back in the lineup for the Chicago Blackhawks after missing five consecutive games with an upper-body injury.
Bolland got hurt in a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 22. The center has five goals and two assists in 16 games this season.
While Bolland is slated to play Tuesday night against Minnesota, right wing Michael Frolik is out with an illness.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes watched Sunday night from center ice as their 2011-12 Pacific Division championship banner appeared from behind a black cover. It hung crooked, somehow appropriate for a franchise that last year put together the best season in franchise history amid a seemingly endless ownership saga and rumors of relocation.
As nice a moment as it was for the Coyotes...
