I stayed up late Tuesday night so you didn’t have to. I watched the Los Angeles Kings-Phoenix Coyotes go overtime so you didn’t have to.
And if you’re a Blackhawks fan, you didn’t want to see it because you’d see the...

You probably already know Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello made surprise appearances on stage with Bruce Springsteen Friday and Saturday at The Boss’s concerts at Wrigley Field, but there were...

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...

OK, so the Wild gets both Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, but remember, the Blackhawks beat them to Sheldon Brookbank.
So there, Minnesota. Take that. No Sheldon Brookbank Bobblehead Night for you.
Not only did Parise and Suter sign elsewhere, but the...

One of the best salesmen for a league that needs it was just named to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

It’s on the Blackhawks players. That appears to be the central message coming from general manager Stan Bowman at the trade deadline Monday.
The players who are here now are good enough to win big later this season, no matter what they’ve...

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.
This time, though, unlike the way...

Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw hit a goalie. It was obvious and potentially concussive. The NHL said it was cracking down on hits involving the head. He deserved a suspension.
Nashville’s Shea Weber rammed a player’s head into the glass...

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.

Kim Kardashian’s last public appearance in the Chicago area — a highly anticipated promotional appearance at the Michael Hill Jeweller store in Water Tower Place mall in 2010 — started two hours late and lasted only 20 minutes.

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.
Not 101 points.
So when Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman urged...
