Chicago Blackhawks have very successful fan in Kelly Amonte-Hiller

The Chicago Blackhawks have eliminated the St. Louis Blues, just like Kelly Amonte-Hiller said they would. She made the Hawks prediction, only because I asked her last night after her Northwestern Lacrosse team defeated USC 12-7 at Wrigley Field last night.

History Shows Making Move At NHL Trade Deadline Helps Stanley Cup Pursuit

The NHL trade deadline is often a difficult time to make deals because price tags on rental players are usually sky-high. Teams also are reluctant to give up young players and draft picks for veterans who could leave in the offseason as unrestricted free agents. With that said, many Stanley Cup champions over the last 25 years made moves at the deadline that had a meaningful impact...

The first Bob Probert Memorial Ride took place less than a year after the former Red Wings and Blackhawks enforcer's passing, and it was an incredibly emotional event.
