A Blackhawks Flashback to December 23, 2007

A quick note on this: I have to mention that the inspiration for writing about this night comes from recalling this article written by Sam Fels of The Committed Indian referring to the same night. I’d recommend checking out that story as well, as it’s the original (and almost certainly the better) one. I had no idea what I was in for when I talked my dad into taking the family to the Hawks game eight years ...

Patrick Kane ties Jonathan Toews in career goals

The Chicago Blackhawks go as their two cornerstones go. And so far, those corner stones have produced for the organization. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90XpncKkLJg Winger Patrick Kane extended his franchise record point streak to 23 consecutive games on Tuesday, giving him some hope that he can catch Wayne Gretzky's all-time mark. But Kaner's goal did more than just extend the streak, he's now tied with ...

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 ...

Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad got himself traded

Or maybe it was his agent. Either way, Brandon Saad forced the hand of the Blackhawks into making this deal when he entered the negotiations for his new contract. Brandon Saad was just coming off his entry-level deal, which is the three-year contract that all newly-drafted players sign, although the years don’t start ticking until that player reaches the NHL. He just wrapped up an 82-game regular season whe ...

Are these the final days of the Blackhawks’ “core” group?

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 ...

Stanley Cup Final: Chicago Blackhawks survive a wild Game 4 to even series

The Chicago Blackhawks were not panicking heading into Game 4 but knew they had to look at this game as a must win. The Tampa Bay Lightning announced just hours before the game that Ben Bishop, their starting goalie, would not play in Game 4 with an undisclosed injury and that rookie Andrei Vasilevskiy would start in net. Vasilevskiy is looked at as a future star goalie in the NHL and had a good overall gam ...

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 ...

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 ...
