    Confidence booster for Bickell, HawksApr 3, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Blackhawks have been sputtering without star Patrick Kane. Without Bryan Bickell? Probably not as much. Still it was as nice to get Bicks back as it was to get a 3-2 win over the Wild Thursday night at the United Center. “Bicks comes back in the lineup and scores a big goal,” Duncan Keith said. “That’s the kind of thing we’re going to need going forward.”

  • Hawks stand by decision not to retaliate after Toews hitApr 2, 2014 12:00 AM
    The fact that the Blackhawks didn't react in a more physical manner to Brooks Orpik's hit on Jonathan Toews, which the NHL opted not to review, brought up quite the debate in the hockey world over the last 48 hours.

  • If captains such as the Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews aren’t defended, the NHL isn’t the NHL anymore.

    No defense for not defending Hawks’ ToewsApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Not debatable: Of course the Blackhawks should have retaliated against the Penguins for the hit on Jonathan Toews. If captains aren't defended, the NHL isn't the NHL anymore.

     
  • The Blackhawks’ Sheldon Brookbank (17) celebrates with teammates as he returns to the bench after scoring in the second period of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Pittsburgh,

    Who will step up with Kane, Toews out?Mar 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    Losers of four of their last five. Without Patrick Kane until the playoffs. And now potentially without captain Jonathan Toews for at least the short term after suffering an injury Sunday night in Pittsburgh … These certainly aren’t great times for the Blackhawks.

    The Blackhawks were looking at a nightmare scenario Sunday night when Jonathan Toews took a crunching hit along the boards from Pittsburgh’s Brooks Orpick with 6:30 remaining in the second period, left the ice holding his left arm and never returned in a 4-1 Penguins victory.

    Verdi on Sassone’s legacy covering the BlackhawksMar 30, 2014 12:00 AM
    In an evolving industry, Tim Sassone represented a bastion of stability. For more than a quarter century, he wrote about one team, the Blackhawks, for one newspaper, The Daily Herald. And as Blackhawks Team Historian and colleague Bob Verdi explains, if you were among the many who competed against him over the years, you were best served to take your lumps and promise to try harder. You were not going to outwork him; that was a given.

  • Blackhawks, Penguins both strugglingMar 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Blackhawks and the Penguins are looking a lot alike lately. Both have lost star players recently — Patrick Kane for the Hawks and Evgeni Malkin of the Pens — each, coincidently, going down during games against St. Louis. But the most striking similarity between the two clubs is the doldrums they’ve been in since returning from the Olympic break.

    Questions mount after another frustrating lossMar 28, 2014 12:00 AM
    There were more questions than answers following the Blackhawks' second loss in two days, this time a 5-3 decision at the hands of host Ottawa The most pressing of which being what's the deal with the Hawks lately? “There were some good moments where we did have control of the puck and had second efforts ... but other than that there were just sloppy turnovers and sloppy mistakes that we really need to get out of our system,” Hawks captain Jonathan Toews told reporters. “We have to play some character hockey."
