    Epic series has sad ending for BlackhawksJun 1, 2014 12:00 AM

    Saad ramps up his game during 2014 postseasonJun 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Scoreless in his last 12 regular-season games, which cost him his first 20-goal campaign. An upper-body injury that caused him to miss three games in March. A healthy scratch with four games left before the start of the best time of the year for a hockey player: playoff hockey. Brandon Saad, sad? Sadly for Blackhawks opponents, no.

  • Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford gets a hand from Brandon Bollig after letting the winning goal past him in overtime of Game 7 as the Los Angeles Kings win the Western Conference final 5-4 on Sunday at the United Center.

    No real good reason to be hard on HawksJun 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    A question has been lingering ever since the Blackhawks fell behind early in the Western Conference finals. What should the response be if the Kings eliminate the Hawks from the Stanley Cup playoffs? Well, there's no reason to be hard on a team that ran into another champion at the wrong time.

    Sunday night, the Blackhawks look to make some magic again in a Game 7 when they host the Kings, a team they trailed 3-1 before a pair of magical victories put them on the cusp of a return trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

     
  • Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville wasn't afraid to change lines or combinations in Games 5 and 6, which is one reason the Hawks will have a Game 7 against the L.A. Kings.

    Quenneville still making all the right movesMay 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    On most nights, a hockey coach might feel like an elevator operator. In either job, buttons are at your disposal to control ups and downs. But they are so repetitious that it is advisable to accept a certain sense of being powerless, go with the flow and keep the status of your emotions veering too far from quo. On most nights, Joel Quenneville operates thusly as his Blackhawks seek to defend their 2013 Stanley Cup, but in Games 5 and 6 against Los Angeles, Quenneville has changed up and pushed all the right buttoms, as Blackhawks Team Historian Bob Verdi explains.

    Kings remain confident about Game 7May 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    As badly as they were feeling after dropping their second straight game to the Blackhawks to force a Game 7 in Chicago, the Kings could at least take solace in knowing that they’ve gone on the road this postseason and won Game 7s already.

     
  • Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane, left, celebrates his tiebreaking goal with center Andrew Shaw against the Los Angeles Kings during the third period of Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on Friday night.

    Right on cue, Kane rescues Hawks to live another dayMay 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    Remember about a week ago when Patrick Kane admitted he was a little bummed that he hadn’t yet come up with the big play at the big moment in the Western Conference Finals? Yeah, well those days are officially over because Kane was Kane in the biggest game of the season and now the Blackhawks, somewhat improbably, are one victory away from a return trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

    Kane, Blackhawks leave Kings searching for answersMay 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    What will remain inexplicable is the Blackhawks’ mind-numbing need to dig a canyon before mounting the heroic effort to climb out, usually against overwhelming odds. What remains indefinable, and yet somehow predictable, is the character and heart of a group that simply doesn’t want to go home until the last game of the season is concluded.

  • The Blackhawks' Kris Versteeg has struggled this postseason, leaving many to wonder if there is any benefit to having him in the lineup right now.

    Blackhawks need fresh legs, speed in lineupMay 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    Joel Quenneville has pushed the right buttons too many times to try to count them all, and he will go down as one of the greatest coaches ever. But when it comes to loyalty, he's got a stubborn side that borders on the absurd. The most obvious example is the continued presence of Kris Versteeg and Brandon Bollig, both of whom could have been removed from the lineup weeks ago.
