Looking to lead the Florida Panthers back to the playoffs after more than a decade without a berth, former Chicago general manager Dale Tallon turned to some players who helped the Blackhawks achieve an even bigger goal.
Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon continues to stockpile former players he had in Chicago when he held the same position with the Blackhawks.
Apparently there is disappointment building among Blackhawks players as more and more members of the 2009-10 Stanley Cup-winning team leave Chicago.
The Chicago Blackhawks made headlines during the NHL Entry Draft on Friday night, but not for players that they added to the roster.
Many Chicago Blackhawks fans have spent much of late last night and early this morning looking for someone to blame for last night’s loss to the Vancouver Canucks.
Trailing 3-0 in the series and facing a quick first round elimination from the playoffs, the defending Stanley Cup champions routed the Vancouver Canucks and sent the series back to Vancouver.
Earlier this month, the Chicago Blackhawks lost to the Florida Panthers, and that was with their leading scorer Patrick Sharp. Now the Blackhawks will try avenge that loss without their injured forward.
Patrick Sharp’s knee injury is not considered to be a longterm issue and the Blackhawks expect him to be back before the playoffs start.
The Blackhawks haven’t looked like the same team they were last season, struggling to reach the top. Just like the Green Bay Packers, the Blackhawks can still turn things around and take home another championship after a struggling season.
After a slow start, the Chicago Blackhawks are finally starting to show signs that they’re still the same team that won the Stanley Cup last season. And it has everything to do with comfort.
It was an electric night at the United Center as the Ottawa Senators scored a late third period goal forcing overtime and shoot out.
The Chicago Blackhawks struggled to score against the Dallas Stars. They pulled it together to tie in the second period, but could only come close in the third.
The Blackhawks have struggled all season long. Despite battling injuries, dealing with a new roster and poor play, the Blackhawks are still in the playoff hunt. But time might not be on their side.
For each goal scored, the opposing team scored another. The Blackhawks scored twice in the second period within the final 23 seconds to keep the game tied, but were unable to break through San Jose’s defenses during the third period. After facing each other three times this season, the Blackhawks have lost each time.
The much publicized salary cap crunch over the offseason left the Blackhawks without the same depth that they enjoyed last season. That depth allowed them to deal with injuries and continue winning, this year hasn’t been the same.
The Blackhawks head to Nashville to take on the Predators and remember the playoff excitement from defeating them in the quarterfinals. If the Blackhawks win, this would be the Predators’ fifth straight loss at home.
Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell says the team needs to prepare better and get more bodies in front of the opposing goal to put an end to a slump in which they’ve lost four in a row at home.
Dominant play at home was the key to last year’s success. Poor play at home has been the biggest obstacle the Blackhawks have had to face this year.
It remains very early in the 2010-11 NHL season but to many Blackhawks fans the defending Stanley Cup Champions have been a disappointment through the teams first 17 games.
The Blackhawks host the NHL worst Devils Wednesday night after losing four of the past six games. With Brian Campbell back in action, the Blackhawks’ focus is to re-establish their puck-possession.
