One day later, Hawks’ Game 7 loss still stings

One day later, it still hasn’t settled in. The 2015-16 Chicago Blackhawks season is over. Their dreams of becoming the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions — about the only aspect of the Detroit Red Wings run that the Hawks haven’t matched— were dashed. The next Blackhawks game that matters is about five-and-a-half months away. https://twitter.com/MarkLazerus/status/7248078674133 ...

A look back at predictions for the Chicago Blackhawks 2015-16 season

Before we jump ahead to the playoffs, let’s go back and revisit our season preview (click that link for a reminder) from the start of the season to see just how wrong I was. I’ve got Teuvo Teravainen scoring at least 52 points this season: I should’ve put Artemi Panarin here, although I don’t think anyone expected Panarin to be quite as good as he was this year. I settled on 52 points because that was the n ...

A farewell to Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp

We all knew it was coming. No matter how the move was made, no matter how much sense it makes from a salary cap perspective, any time a player with a tenure as long and as successful as Patrick Sharp’s in Chicago is ended, the disappointment is going to linger for more than just a night. Let me take you back to my first memory of Patrick Sharp as a Blackhawks: April 5, 2007. The Blackhawks were approaching ...

This image was the wallpaper on my computer for what seemed like a decade. Seems like there’s been a never-ending list of different players with big moments that have contributed to the incredible run that the Chicago Blackhawks have been on in the last eight seasons. But the five players you see pictured above have been the foundation upon which this franchise turnaround was built upon: Brent Seabrook, Dun ...

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.

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 ...

No problem too big for the Chicago Blackhawks this season

Nearly one-third of the way through its regular season schedule, the Chicago Blackhawks are in the middle of its most challenging stretch and still dominating, winning five in a row and 10 of their last 12. The Hawks’ success in the prior two weeks is particularly impressive when you consider its opponents in some of those games. Consecutive 4-1 defeats came against Western Conference powers Anaheim, Los An ...
