Here are Three Things to Watch when the Blackhawks take on the Los Angeles Kings tonight on NBC Sports Chicago and streaming live on the NBC Sports app. Coverage begins at 5:30 p.m. with Blackhawks Pregame Live. 1. Who will start in goal for Blackhawks?
After going 1-for-7 on the power play during Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Dallas, the Blackhawks had an early opportunity to get on the board when Gustav Forsling drew a tripping penalty 2:49 into the game, but they couldn't capitalize. The Blackhawks have now allowed at least one power-play goal in four of their last six games […]
The Blackhawks placed goaltender Corey Crawford on injured reserve and recalled Jean-Francois Berube from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, the team announced Friday. The first sign came early in the first period when Crawford made a shorthanded save on Mattias Janmark, going from left to right.
When everything is going well for Artem Anisimov, he is repeatedly hit by sticks – in the back, legs, everywhere. Anisimov wrapped up a productive November for Chicago with a power-play goal during Thursday night's 4-3 overtime loss to the Dallas Stars. The 6-foot-4, 198-pound Anisimov makes his living on the most expensive real estate […]
It’s been an up-and-down season so far for the Chicago Blackhawks, but it’s fair to say that things would be far more down if Corey Crawford wasn’t cleaning up so many messes. Well, Crawford won’t be available for such on-ice custodial duties, at least for a while, as the Blackhawks placed him on IR. There […]
Fourth liners are out there to bring energy, to bring a physical presence, the sandpaper, the grit, all those familiar terms. "You know, we all play this game for one reason and that's to score goals," Tommy Wingels said recently. For Wingels, Lance Bouma and John Hayden, who have comprised the Blackhawks' fourth line for […]
The third period was an energetic one for the Blackhawks, at least through the first half of it. "Yeah, just not really much going on," Patrick Kane said of the first two periods of the Blackhawks' 4-3 overtime loss to the Dallas Stars. It was an unacceptable opening 40 minutes for the Blackhawks, who could […]
Here are Three Things to Watch when the Blackhawks take on the Dallas Stars Thursday on NBC Sports Chicago and streaming live on the NBC Sports app. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. with Blackhawks Pregame Live. After going pointless in his previous 16 games, Sharp has three points (one goal, two assists) in his last two and […]
Filip Forsberg has scored on many different goalies, but Tuesday night was the first time he collected a goal against one with the same name on the back of his jersey. Forsberg opened Nashville's scoring against Chicago goaltender Anton Forsberg, Pekka Rinne made 37 saves, and the Predators beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2. ''Yeah, it […]
For the Blackhawks on Tuesday, it was a mix. Against a red-hot Nashville Predators team and on the second half of a back-to-back, the Blackhawks could take some good out of their 3-2 loss. Considering some of their squandered opportunities earlier this season, the Blackhawks are certainly looking for two points every chance they can […]
The Blackhawks have played well as of late but against the Nashville Predators, you better be close to perfect. The Predators outplayed the Blackhawks and took a 2-1 lead. Much like some of his teammates, Richard Panik has dealt with a scoring slump.
Patrick Sharp has been highly complementary of Alex DeBrincat since the 19-year-old started camp with the Blackhawks in September. All Movember-motivated facial hair aside, DeBrincat has developed his game just fine with the Blackhawks. DeBrincat now has nine of his 10 goals in November.
