When Corey Crawford went down Sunday night, most of Blackhawk nation gasped.
On Wednesday morning, the Blackhawks announced that they’ve recalled forwards Jeremy Morin and Joakim Nordstrom, and have demoted center Brandon Pirri to Rockford.
What Duncan Keith is doing this season is nothing short of remarkable.
Saturday night in Chicago, the Blackhawks put together their most complete effort of the Stanley Cup Final so far.
The Blackhawks won the President’s Trophy for the best record in the league. In fact, had the season not been shortened by a lockout, the Hawks were on pace to tie the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens’ record for total points in a season (132).
As I sit here, nervously awaiting the start of Game 7, I find myself wavering between total confidence and extreme fear and panic.
Back in the early 2000s, my wife Hope and I had just met.
Last night, the Blackhawks tied the NHL record for consecutive games without a regulation loss after beating the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 in the shootout.
Now that the ugliness of the lockout is behind us, I’ve been spending most of my day (and NHL 13 video game season) contemplating how the 2013-13 (heh) Blackhawks will look and what we can expect from the season.

While Toews obviously makes the team better, risking re-injury is not worth what could amount to a meaningless win or two.
How insane has the Blackhawks’ goalie situation been this season?
When Carcillo was in the lineup, he was very effective. He spent much of his time on the top line with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane or Marian Hossa.
As the hours, then the minutes before the NHL Trade Deadline ticked away, Hawks fans everywhere were getting more and more uneasy. “Would General Manager Stan Bowman make a move?” “The Hawks have so many holes…they need at least a defenseman and a center.”
The severity of the concussion is not known, but it is believed Toews suffered the injury early in the Blackhawks’ recent road trip.
Tonight, when the Blackhawks face off against the Detroit Red Wings, they’ll have to do so without their captain Jonathan Toews, who will miss at least this game with an upper body injury.
After a very solid road game in Nashville, the Blackhawks still came up short, extending their losing streak to nine games.
