  • Hawks win eighth straight, but may lose Toews Dec 11, 2014 11:12 PM
    It should have been a night of celebration for the Blackhawks after their 3-2 win over the Bruins Thursday at TD Garden. Despite the victory, a gray cloud hung over this one concerning the health of Hawks captain Jonathan Toews, who was face-planted into the boards behind Boston’s net by defenseman Dennis Seidenberg midway through the second period. Toews, who has a history of concussions, played the next shift but would not return after that.

  • Coach Q not fretting over Keith’s playing time Dec 10, 2014 7:29 PM
    Duncan Keith was on the ice for 34 shifts and played just a tick over 30 minutes Tuesday night in New Jersey.

  • Hawks gut out 3-2 shootout win over Devils Dec 9, 2014 9:04 PM
    After an intense six-game circus trip, followed by showdowns against heavyweights like St. Louis, Montreal and Nashville, taking on struggling New Jersey had to be a little bit of a letdown for the Blackhawks.

  • Verdi: Elegant Beliveau left a lasting impresson Dec 8, 2014 1:27 PM

  • Dilemma: What should Blackhawks do with Sharp, Saad? Dec 7, 2014 8:24 PM

  • Hossa’s 2 goals help Hawks to 3-1 victory Dec 6, 2014 9:01 PM
    Bringing up worries during the Blackhawks’ run of late, a run that included wins in five straight and 10 of their last 12 heading into their showdown in Nashville on Saturday, almost seems like nitpicking. But if you dug deep enough, maybe one of those concerns might be — might be — that Marian Hossa has been struggling big-time in the goal-scoring department. It was good to see Hossa, who had just one goal in his last 16 games, get off the schneid with a pair of goals Saturday — including the game-winner — to propel the Hawks to a 3-1 victory.

  • Hawks stage come-from-behind 4-3 win over Habs Dec 5, 2014 10:37 PM
    The last time the Blackhawks and Canadiens met, the Hawks simply took it to the Habs. Montreal left town after a 5-0 pasting. They knew better than to expect the same when Montreal invaded the United Center on Friday night. And they couldn’t have been more right because the Canadiens came to play and gave the Hawks everything they could handle before Brandon Saad scored the game-winner with 27 seconds left for a thrilling 4-3 victory.

  • Sharp may be back next week Dec 4, 2014 9:53 PM

  • Hawks are killers in penalty situations Dec 4, 2014 9:57 PM
    The Blackhawks have put up some preposterous numbers of late – like four straight wins, 7 of their last 8, and let’s not even talk about the production of the Kane-Richards-Versteeg line. But perhaps their most impressive number is their league-best 92 percent success rate on the penalty kill.

Pretty embarrassed by it, frustrated.”

And when they did, a 1-1 tie with St. Louis turned into a 4-1 laugher within a six-minute span to begin the third period.
