Every San Jose forward recorded at least two points in the team’s two playoff victories over the Kings, a testament to the depth the Sharks have developed after years of featuring two strong lines and a bunch of moving parts.
While top-six forward...

Out of stupidity comes victories.
I think Nietzsche said that. Or maybe it was Toe Blake.
Whichever, the Blackhawks benefited from their stupidity to the point that they just pulled even in their playoff series against the Blues.
The Hawks were...

Raffi Torres got a 25-game suspension for his dirty, despicable, flying hit that knocked out Marian Hossa in the first period of Game 3 of the Blackhawks-Coyotes playoff series.
But you know what? After listening to NHL sheriff Brendan Shanahan, Torres...

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Patrick Sharp merely chuckled when asked if the Blackhawks practice scoring with six attackers on the ice.
The Hawks seem to have perfected the art of late-game heroics as for the second consecutive contest they tied the score...

In the Stanley Cup Finals, the greatest showcase of all playoff rounds, the NHL is stuck with despicable biting and now a frightening blindside hit that resulted in a player being stretchered off the ice to the hospital.
You could say the NHL is...

It's never too early to start thinking about hockey.
Especially in Chicago, considering the way our baseball teams have played and the ongoing NFL and NBA lockouts.
And luckily for Blackhawks nation, this weekend is the team's fourth annual convention,...

One of the big problems with the “loser’’ point that the NHL awards to a team that gets beaten in overtime or a shootout is that you can get fooled by some stats.
For starters, this 100-point season isn’t like other Blackhawks...

I hope Stan Bowman is lying about this. I hope he’s just doing what smart, truth-challenged general managers do.
Because I really don’t want to think that the Blackhawks GM actually believes that “for the most part we know what our...

Remember how bad the officiating and supplemental discipline were during the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs?
Commissioner Gary Bettman apparently loved it so much that he decided to continue the stupidity Monday.
Bettman reduced Raffi Torres&...
