With safety at risk, NHL players don’t need to go to Sochi.
The numbers show that fighting in the NHL provides no impact on scoring.
Marian Hossa had a power-play goal and an assist on his 35th birthday, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-3 on Sunday night to end a three-game losing streak.
The Blackhawks’ explosive offense is no secret to those who watch them play on a regular basis. Chicago fills the net more than any team in the NHL.
Jonathan Toews and Brandon Bollig scored in the second period for Chicago, which had recorded at least one point in a season-high 10 games. It was the Blackhawks’ first home regulation loss since a 4-3 setback against Dallas on Dec. 3.
Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored in a shootout, and the San Jose Sharks beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Sunday night for their first victory in Chicago in three years.
Friday, the National Hockey League announced a pair of honors for two members of the Chicago Blackhawks.
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.
Duncan Keith scored a goal and added an assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
Duncan Keith and Andrew Shaw scored in a 39-second span at the start of Chicago’s five-goal second period Wednesday night, sparking the Blackhawks to a 7-2 victory over Ray Emery and the Philadelphia Flyers.
What Duncan Keith is doing this season is nothing short of remarkable.
Not only do the Blackhawks own the NHL’s best record, but Patrick Kane has been named the league’s No. 1 star for the month of November.
Marcus Kruger scored the tiebreaking goal with 8:16 left in the third period, Duncan Keith added a power-play goal 1:55 later and the Blackhawks beat Edmonton 5-4 for their third straight victory.
Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp each scored in the shootout to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.
Championships in Chicago are few and far between.
The current Blackhawks are already among the best teams Chicago has ever seen.
When it comes to talent, the Blackhawks don’t have to take a backseat to anyone.
There has been a lot of hand-wringing locally about the NHL’s decision to go forward with a decision to play in the Olympics.
Championship get-togethers are a shared delusion.
The Hawks have now gone the last two games with only one goal total and that has to change.
