The record start to the regular season and the President’s Trophy were a promise.
The Blackhawks kept it Monday night.
In the most improbable, impossible way.
Down 2-1 with goalie Corey Crawford on the bench in the third period of Game 6 of...

A friend had a question: Which Blackhawks game during their record 19-0-3 start sums up this team the best?
My answer came pretty quickly: None.
Because they’ve won too many games in too many different ways.
You can marvel over Ray Emery&...

How many times do we have to tell the Blackhawks that their power play stinks?
Every time it takes the ice, apparently.
The record will show they lost Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final 2-1 Saturday in overtime. Truth is, they lost it in the first two...

The Blackhawks were the better team entering their second-round playoff series against Detroit.
It just took them seven painful games to prove it, right down to an excruciating and exhilarating Game 7.
No, wait, even that wasn’t enough. It...

You know who’s most thankful for Brent Seabrook’s overtime goal that gave the Blackhawks a 6-5 overtime win in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final?
Corey Crawford’s glove, that’s who.

I thought the Blackhawks had blown Game 1. Just blown a great chance to take control of the Stanley Cup Finals.
They had blown a power play, then blew a 5-on-3 advantage, then blew another power play, all in a one-goal game. Killer stuff, that.
