Friday, the National Hockey League announced a pair of honors for two members of the Chicago Blackhawks.
Kane, while playing with Michal Handzus, the center he’s been pair with most often this season, has not recorded a single goal.
Patrick Kane is the lone Blackhawk representative on the squad.
The Hawks are among the best teams in the league this season. If you’re not already on board, jump on now. Business is about to pick up.
He’s shown an above average glove hand, while making a spectacular save seemingly every night. The young Finn seems to get better and more comfortable with every passing game.
In the NHL (and most other sports), rivalries are grown and cultivated by playoff series.
On Monday, the Chicago Blackhawks announced they had activated winger Bryan Bickell from injured reserve.
The acquisition of LaBarbera, 33, bolsters the organization’s goaltending depth.
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.
Anyone with a functioning pair of eyes can see that the Blackhawks have one of the finest uniforms in all of professional sports. It can not be disputed.
Once again, Patrick Kane’s public drunkenness has brought embarrassment to his team, his family, his organization, and to the fans of the Chicago Blackhawks.
Saturday night’s Blackhawk win was as exciting and memorable as any in recent memory.
While Toews obviously makes the team better, risking re-injury is not worth what could amount to a meaningless win or two.
