  • Quenneville demanding more production from third line Oct 15, 2014 11:14 PM
    Early on here, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville has been pretty complimentary of his top two lines and the job the fourth line has done as well. But as for that third line of Bryan Bickell, Brad Richards and Ben Smith? Eh, not so much.

  • Blackhawks put 50 shots on goal, lose 2-1 in OT Oct 16, 2014 5:05 AM
    The Blackhawks had every right to make this one a romp, especially in a first period where they outshot Calgary 18-2, but often went for the fancy play instead of just throwing the puck on net, and in the end it cost them big time — a more than surprising 2-1 overtime loss to the scrappy Flames.

  • Duncan Keith an Ironman on skates Oct 15, 2014 10:06 AM
    Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville probably realizes he should be amazed that on any night, in any game, he can throw Duncan Keith out on the ice and know he is going to receive an all-world performance Quenneville should be amazed, but after seeing the 31 year-old Keith in action all these years, he's just not. It's a given.

  • Spellman: Another couple days off for Rozsival Oct 14, 2014 7:33 PM
    After practicing with the team again Tuesday at Johnny’s IceHouse, injured Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival (upper body) pronounced himself “closer to 100 percent,” Not quite close enough for coach Joel Quenneville, though, who had been toying with returning Rozsival to the lineup Wednesday against Calgary, but has altered those plans. Now, Saturday appears to be the target return date for the veteran who has missed the first two games of the regular season.

  • Imrem: Blackhawks strong enough to bear the burden Oct 15, 2014 12:08 PM
    With Chicago's other sports franchises roaming the countryside like "The Walking Dead," the Blackhawks bear the burden of being the only local "it" team.

  • Rozsival key piece of Hawks’ defensive puzzle Oct 13, 2014 10:52 PM
    The Blackhawks currently have eight defensemen on their roster, and coach Joel Quenneville said Monday he doesn’t know if that will change any time soon. So in theory, that’s eight players for six spots. In reality it, though, it’s more like four players fighting for two spots because the Hawks’ top-four D-men are absolutely etched in stone.

  • Rozner: Blackhawks hot, Richards not in early going Oct 14, 2014 11:44 AM
    Brad Richards is off to a slow start for the Blackhawks, which is how he finished the season in New York. But the Blackhawks are awfully good again and they have every right to think they’ll be back in the Western Conference finals, No. 2 center or not.

  • Spellman: First impressions of this year’s Blackhawks Oct 12, 2014 7:37 PM
    Few teams put on a pregame show quite like the Blackhawks. And the bigger the event, the better the production. Though a regular-season home opener can’t come close to a playoff game, I think the production values Saturday night were the best I’ve seen yet.

  • Wolves fall 2-1 in OT Oct 12, 2014 8:20 PM
    The Chicago Wolves were topped 2-1 in overtime Sunday, but they earned 3 of a possible 4 points against Charlotte on opening weekend at the Allstate Arena.

  • Wolves win season opener against Charlotte 2-1 Oct 11, 2014 11:47 PM
    The Chicago Wolves kicked off their 21st season with a 2-1 victory over the Charlotte Checkers on Saturday night in front of 10,399 at the Allstate Arena. Forwards Colin Fraser and Jeremy Welsh scored and goaltender Matt Climie posted 14 saves as the Wolves ran their record to 13-6-1-1 in season openers.

  • Blackhawks turn squeaker into 6-2 rout Oct 12, 2014 4:13 PM
    After sneaking out of Dallas with a 3-2 shootout victory on Thursday, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville uttered those now immortal words: “You better call the cops because we just stole 2 points.” Well, after dominating Buffalo early on in their home opener Saturday night at the United Center, Quenneville couldn't have been blamed if he wanted to call in a detective to try to figure out just how in the world this one was tied 2-2 through 40 minutes.

  • Blackhawks’ big 3rd period leads to 6-2 win in home opener Oct 11, 2014 11:07 PM
    An exciting first period in which the Blackhawks and Sabres tied 2-2 gave way to a strong third quarter by the Blackhawks in their 6-2 home-opening win. Corey Crawford finished with 21 saves, and the Hawks are 2-0.

  • Rozner: Blackhawks in flip-switching mode already Oct 11, 2014 11:38 PM
    Two games, two wins, too much talent for the opposition even on nights when the Blackhawks don’t bring their best effort.

  • Spellman: Hossa continues to amaze for Hawks Oct 11, 2014 11:36 PM
    Marian Hossa showed again Saturday night that he’s still got that magic. Big Hoss turned in the play of the game in the first period when he stickhandled through a pair of Buffalo defenders and then wristed one on goal that Jhonas Enroth was somehow able to deflect away.

  • Images: Blackhawks on red carpet and home ice Oct 11, 2014 11:47 PM
    The Blackhawks got the red-carpet treatment as they walked into their home opener at the United Center in Chicago.

  • Anderson leads Wolves into 21st season Oct 10, 2014 11:39 PM
    The Chicago Wolves begin their 21st season this weekend with a pair of games at the Allstate Arena. Coach John Anderson says this team is deeper than the one that rolled up 100 points last year. "It’s good in the sense that we feel comfortable playing everybody out there," he said. "It’s bad in the sense that I can’t play everybody.”

  • Lots of ice time for Hawks' defensive trio Oct 11, 2014 12:14 AM
    Some eyebrows were raised when the final stat sheet came out and it showed Duncan Keith recorded a game-high 29:40 of ice time, while Niklas Hjalmarsson was just over 25 minutes and Brent Seabrook over 23. Pretty hefty ice time for so early in the season, but not outrageous, according to Seabrook.

  • Rozner: Youth will be served on Blackhawks' blueline Oct 9, 2014 5:38 AM
    The Blackhawks have an exceptional core of players, but that core is also very expensive and getting more expensive all the time. The trick is to work young players into the lineup whenever possible.

  • Inking Toews, Kane to long-term deals ensured Hawks’ long-term success Oct 9, 2014 5:30 AM
    The man at the very top of the Blackhawks organization never had a doubt. Should we go ahead and sign our two stars — Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane — to identical 8-year, $84 million contract extensions? Absolutely. “If you don’t have the right guys, you wouldn’t go that long,” chairman Rocky Wirtz said.

  • Corey Crawford shines in net as Hawks win opener Oct 10, 2014 9:21 AM
    Corey Crawford stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced, a handful of them in jaw-dropping fashion, and the Hawks rallied late to somehow sneak out of Dallas with a 3-2 shootout victory.
