The Blackhawks were desperate. Again.
They trailed the Phoenix Coyotes by a goal and had to pull goalie Corey Crawford. Again.
With less than 15 seconds to go, they scored the tying goal to force overtime. Again.

If the Blackhawks truly want to retaliate Thursday night for Raffi Torres' dirty hit on Marian Hossa, the most satisfying method will be measured on the scoreboard and not in the penalty box.
Hurting a Coyote won't necessarily help the Hawks.

With enough force to draw a 10-minute misconduct, the best sports marketing department in Chicago consistently hammers us with how we should define the Blackhawks.

I’ll keep his identity anonymous because he might be drawn and quartered by other British Columbia residents who direct pottymouth e-mails to me for...

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...

The Blackhawks will not practice today. The Vancouver Canucks, I believe, were being tended to by all the king’s horses and all the king’s men.
Or should we be calling them the Vanquitter Canucks after the way they’ve rolled over easily...

The Anaheim Ducks on Friday sent bruising defenseman James Wisniewski to the New York Islanders in exchange for a third-round draft selection. The move came hours after the 26-year-old Wisniewski agreed to a one-year deal with the Ducks, thus avoiding.......
