HOCKEYBACK Means Never Having To Say You're Sorry

The lockout was really hard on all of us.  I get that.  It was really hard to fill our hours that are usually devoted to watching, disecting, analyzing, and talking about hockey with stuff like defined benefit pensions.  Hockey is supposed to be our pleasant distraction from those boring business-y things.  Sometimes that causes us all to go a bit crazy. Again, I get that. ...

A Centralized Deadline View

There's been a lot of talk about what the Hawks did. While most are not satisfied with Oduya and would have liked to see more (Steve Ott's name was mentioned briefly and man, imagine him and Bolland on a line) we'll just have to live with it. Some were saying the Hawks needed a goalie (People who started wathcing Hockey in February of 2010 were saying to trade Patrick...

Road Trip: 25 Hours In Vancouver

Behind Enemy Lines: 25 Hours In VancouverThe first sign (literally) that I was in Vancouver. In 36 hours, I was on 4 flights in 2 states, 1 province and 2 countries. On each of the flights, I traveled stand by. I’m tired and spent too much money, but it was entirely worth it.Living in Lincoln, Nebraska it’s pretty hard for me to get my NHL fix. In September I drove 3 hours to...

DOY Previews the Sabres

Curtain Call

Two years ago today I started Blackhawks Down Low.  We had about 7 hits on the first post I ever put up.  I thought it would just be something I did sparingly as I shouted my opinions on the Blackhawks at nobody in particular.  In 2011 we had about 10,000 hits per month, a number I never fathomed we would hit.  I used to get so excited if we got to 100 visitors per day. Now I...

A Win Where The Wild Things Are: Blackhawks 3 Wild 3-Hawks win rap battle 2-0.

(Yeah, another lame title. Sorry about that). On the surface, it looked like it would be a standard Hawks/Wild game on Versus: middle of the week in Minnesota, hot Wild team, strong defensively and Nick Backstrom in goal. This had 1-0 Wild win written all over it. Sometimes, these things don’t go to script. The Hawks and Wild played an end-to-end game game with the Hawks coming...

No Way Jose: Blackhawks vs Sharks Preview

Game Time: 6 PMTV / Radio: WGN *siiiiigh* / WGN RadioSharktopus: Couch Tarts The poor Sharks.  I can't help but feel sorry for them for a couple reasons.  First, we got to witness firsthand that stomping the Hawks put on them in the Western Conference Final in 2010 that permanently affixed the "headcase" tag on the team.  More recently, the Sharks have lost three...

No Sleep Till Brooklyn - Hawks 3 Future Brooklyn Team 2

Quick note before we get into the recap.  As some of you may have already heard, Kelly will no longer be blogging with BHDL (or any other hockey blog for that matter).  He's got a new, big time job that takes up most of his days that he used to spend making stupid jokes about hockey with me on Twitter.  I can't explain to everyone how vital he was to the BHDL operation...

Blackhawks caught eating paste, Phoenix wins coloring contest

*******, do I have to do EVERYTHING around here!? Alright, give me some goalie pads. Right after I score another goal.”Let me just preface this wrap with a little complaining. Games on Versus make me want to punt kittens. I actually don’t mind Doc Emrick or even Edzo, but the combination of Pierre McGuire and the fact that I don’t get Versus in HD is the worst.

Hey, there's the arch! No wait, that's a half-burned down McDonalds : Blackhawks beat Blues 5-2

“Watch this. I'm going to take this puck and put it behind your goalie. No watch, it'll be cool."Naturally... in his first game back after missing almost 100, David Perron makes it 1-0 six minutes into the game. The rest of the first period would continue to showcase the Blackhawks inability to finish checks or actually run a cycle to get anything going. They had 13...

Preview: Hawks vs Blue Waffles

If you don’t get the “blue waffle” joke, you totally shouldn’t do a Google Image Search for it. Seriously. Don’t. Toews has been leading this team like Caesar. We all know what went on last night in the Hawks/Islanders game. Neither team gave a ******** worth about trying to play any NHL-caliber defense and therefore the teams had a shootout, both figuratively and literally...

What's Defense? Hawks Win After Cow Tipping Contest, 5-4

So here’s the scoop. The Islanders suck but have won two in a row. But the Hawks have been leaving huge steaming piles on the ice lately. Trying to turn it around tonight with Kane back to wing and Marcus Kruger as the second center? Okay then, here we go.On an ensuing power play from an idiotic too many men penalty, a shot from the point by Travis Harmonic was kicked right to...
