Down 3-2? This series still isn’t over for the Chicago Blackhawks

In my 28 years as a fan of the teams that call the city of Chicago home, I’ve learned that the Chicago sports fan base tends to be a cynical, pessimistic bunch. And can you blame us? Since the turn of the century it’s had to deal with the nightmare of the Bartman game as well as a fourth-and-eight in a regular season finale and DEAR GOD WHY ISN’T ANYONE COVERING RANDALL COBB?! But I don’t bring up these pai ...

Roster changes doom Blackhawks in Game 3

He has to be lying, right? There’s no way this is the actual reason. https://twitter.com/TramyersCSN/status/601588439851487233   Joel Quenneville’s reasoning for scratching Antoine Vermette and Teuvo Teravainen for Game 3 just doesn’t make sense.

Blackhawks firing on all cylinders in Game 2 win over the Wild

The general consensus on my Twitter timeline following the Hawks 4-1 dismantling of the Wild was that Game 2 was the most complete performance we’ve seen out of the Blackhawks this postseason. It’s hard to disagree, as there were contributions from the entire lineup. Top-liners Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa combined for a shorthanded goal thanks to a fortuitous bounce off the butt end of Devan Dubnyk’s go ...

We've seen Derrick Rose, Michael Jordan as well as other current and former Bulls players sporting Blackhawks gear throughout the years. And yes, even the Bears have been known to support the team.

Are you sure Hank done it this way, Nashville?

Nashville isn't just the city of broken dreams to many on lower Broadway, but apparently broke wallets to many Predator fans. Home to some of the best singers in the world and to many wonderful people; they sure seemed to struggle to find ways to get fans to buy tickets for this round of hockey.  In a move that shocked many others, the Nashville Predators put a twist on yesterdays much anticipated playoff g ...
