I realize the Hawks made a move to acquire a...

Stroll into Johnny's IceHouse West at 2550 W. Madison St. and you'll see a typical hockey facility. It is home to recreational leagues. It has a bulletin board updating visitors on upcoming camps, skill seminars and pickup games. It sells hockey gear...

Technically, Thursday's Game 4 at Detroit was not a "must-win" for the Blackhawks. Even if they lost, they'd still have a chance to win the series. However, being 3-1 would make them very uncomfortable, and thus they needed to play with a high degree of...

It's often the case that as Jonathan Toews goes, so go the Blackhawks. He's had a rough series against Detroit, especially with three penalties in Game 4. The captain did notch his first goal of the playoffs in Game 5 to help keep his team alive, and...

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock says he loves Game 7’s, even if it sounds like he loves whistling past the graveyard.
Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, who is not smart enough to like the Rolling Stones, at least has the brains to...

NASHVILLE -- The Chicago Blackhawks will look to snap their eight-game losing skid Tuesday against a team that is responsible for two of the defeats.
The Hawks are in Nashville to face the Predators on Tuesday night Bridgestone Arena. The Hawks started...

The first one, I’m sure about. The second is a good guess. This is a meltdown of epic proportions, even for the weak-willed Canucks. There’s not enough Kokanee in British Columbia to anesthetize the...

The loss of Patrick Sharp is the worst injury the Blackhawks could suffer short of something happening to Jonathan Toews.
