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&...

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville changed lines.
Of course, Quenneville changed lines. That’s what he does when things get dire, and sometimes even when they don’t.
But in the second period of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals in Los...

The 2013 Stanley Cup is Pittsburgh’s to lose. Even with stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin – arguably the best two players in the league – out of the lineup down the stretch, the Penguins continued to win, seemingly with......

The Blackhawks won the first shift of Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal series, and that was pretty much it.
The Red Wings won almost everything else --- the tempo, the style, the puck, and most importantly, the game.
This is what adversity...

We’re in for an amazing Stanley Cup Final. The Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins both bring brawn and flair, so prepare for bloody battles and dazzling plays. The Bruins were masterful in their 4-game Round 3 sweep of the Pittsburgh......

I thought the Blackhawks had blown Game 1. Just blown a great chance to take control of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Next time you spot a Blackhawks player, pinch them.
