    Blackhawks, Kings embrace pressures of Game 7
    The Blackhawks and Kings have been asked repeatedly throughout the Western Conference finals to pin the burden of pressure on the other team. The only thing is, there probably aren’t two NHL teams that embrace anxiety-wracked games as an...

    Nothing changes until the Hawks' second line does
    The Blackhawks have 10 Olympians on their playoff roster for the Western Conference finals, and Kings second-liners Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson are owning them. Owning every shift. Owning this series. Carter and young wingers kids...

     Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews will need more help
    LOS ANGELES — Hockey isn't basketball or badminton or golf, but perhaps the ultimate team sport. Everybody dressed for games typically contributes as the coach rolls four offensive lines and rotates three defensive pairs. One man can do only so...

    Feel that? That would be the red-hot Hawks
    You are missed, Andrew Shaw. Since the undersized forward was injured in Game 1 of the series against Minnesota, the Blackhawks have tried to duplicate his scrappy presence, especially in front of the Wild net. The Hawks were successful in Game 5,...

    Making case for Crawford as elite goalie

    Hawks victory sounds just as sweet in Australian
    5-0.  That's Australian Blackhawks fan Paul Wilkins' record when he attends games at the United Center. Hard to argue with that success.  Same goes for just about everything Hawks related Sunday. Wilkins (@pwilkins10) and more than 21,000 others saw...

    Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews needs teammates to play like champions
    Hockey isn't basketball or badminton or golf but perhaps the ultimate team sport in which everybody dressed for games typically contributes as the coach rolls four offensive lines and rotates three defensive pairs. One man can only do so much. And...
  • Kings knock the wind out of Blackhawks

    Kings knock the wind out of Blackhawks
    Any player who tells you home-ice advantage makes no difference is probably lying. No doubt the Blackhawks were thrilled Sunday's Game 7 of the Western Conference finals was in Chicago and not in the Kings' home arena. "[Game 5 on Wednesday] was...
  • Talking in sports is so overrated

    Talking in sports is so overrated
    I saw a fascinating headline this week. One that inspired me. It said simply "Niklas Hjalmarsson unable to speak, but will play." And I thought, what if certain athletes had a "no speak, play only" clause in their contract? Say I'm a sports agent. I...
  • All those Blackhawks overtimes for this?!

    All those Blackhawks overtimes for this?!
    The Blackhawks opened their defense of the Stanley Cup on Thursday, and waiting for them in the first round was rival St. Louis. Let's just say given how much they dislike each other, blood on the ice will be the furthest thing from a surprise. In honor...
