Back in the early 2000s, my wife Hope and I had just met.
I’ve been meaning to write this blog for a couple of years now, and I’ve never done it. Maybe it’s because I participated, in earnest, so many times. Maybe it’s because when I see the Winged Wheel on the Detroit sweaters, I just want to blurt it out. Well, not anymore.
espite all the speculation, rumors and wild dreams of the fan base, Stan Bowman and the Blackhawks decided to keep their roster intact, and not make a trade deadline deal.
With the NHL’s April 3rd trade deadline rapidly approaching, the Blackhawks are rumored to be in on a number of players.
With the Detroit Red Wings likely headed to the Eastern Conference next season, it’s time for Blackhawks fans to cuddle up to a new divisional and regional rival.
Tonight’s “On the Glass” event with The Score’s Jay Zawaski and Blackhawks winger Daniel Carcillo has been canceled due to impending inclement weather.
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.
The Blackhawks’ 2-1 overtime win is important for many reasons.
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.
Over the course of the last few days, the NHL and NHLPA have been meeting in a “secret location” (New York) discussing the NHL Lockout, and presumably, working on ways to get the season going again.
According to a tweet from Sportsnet’s John Shannon, the NHL is expected to announce the official cancellation of the remainder of the NHL Preseason.
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.
Friday and Saturday, the NHL held it’s annual entry draft in Pittsburgh, PA. The Blackhawks made eight selections over the seven rounds. Here’s a look at who they picked, and how they might project for the team in the future.
Thursday, the NHL released a complete schedule for the 2012-2013 season. Here’s a look at some of the more interesting games on the Blackhawks’ schedule:
To think, only months ago LA Kings’ winger Dustin Penner was a punchline. Penner, a player who has always battled weight and fitness issues, injured himself eating pancakes.
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.
Joel Quenneville is going nowhere. He wanted everyone to know that right off the bat. In Tuesday’s conference call to the media, the Blackhawks’ Head Coach made that clear.
When you look back on it, the 2011-2012 Blackhawks season was a pretty forgettable one.
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.”
So what does Shaw’s return mean for the Hawks?
