If Jonathan Toews can’t play in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, then the Blackhawks can fill that hole with a quality No. 2 center in -- no, wait, Stan Bowman still hasn’t acquired one.
Better hope Toews can play, Hawks fans. Better hope he...

The Vancouver Canucks have won Game 1 of their playoff series against the Blackhawks each of the last three years after a 2-0 waste of time Wednesday. We know how the first two turned out. This time? Not so sure. Not so sure at all.

How many times do we have to tell the Blackhawks that their power play stinks?
Every time it takes the ice, apparently.

You know what was aggravating about the Blackhawks?
A lack of killer instinct, that’s what.
They didn’t need to go to two overtimes in the playoff opener against the Blues because Jonathan Toews got hurt in each one. This, mind you, coming...

I can’t believe it’s over.
How could it be over?
How could it be over like that?
How could the Blackhawks not complete the miracle? They had gallantly fought back from a seemingly impossible three-games-to-none deficit. They had to win Game...
