Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks celebrates with Dylan Strome after his second goal of the night | Photo by Dave Reginek/NHLI via The Blackhawks ended their losing streak with an offensive outpouring.

After being badly outplayed in the opening minutes of the game, the Blackhawks quickly turned that around and got the scoring started as Dominik Kubalik secured a rebound off of Red Wings’ goaltender Alex...

The Chicago Blackhawks exploded for four goals in the first period — and nearly gave it all back during a horrendous three-goal second period for the Detroit Red Wings — but Dylan Strome’s first career hat trick helped save the day as the Hawks held on to win 8-5.

Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks fights to get off a shot against Alex Nedeljkovic and Marc Staal of the Detroit Red Wings | Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ Can they beat the Red Wings? I mean, can they? Somehow the Red Wings have a better record than the Blackhawks do this season and more exciting young players. Remember when Detroit was the team that couldn’t win the draft lottery despite being one of the clearly worst teams in the league? Good, gone times. Anyway, these two former divisional rivals will play each other on Wednesday night in Detroit. The Red...

My Empire of Dirt: Avalanche 2, Blackhawks 0

Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Another night, another loss. The Blackhawks skidded to their fourth loss in a row by being shutout 2-0 by the Avalanche in Denver Monday night. The first period was scoreless, but the Blackhawks held their own against a powerhouse Avalanche team, a stretch of play that included, maybe, their best penalty kill sequence of the season. Maybe the Blackhawks will be able to do that all game? Spoiler: No, the Blackhawks would not. The second period was the exact opposite of the first as the...

Chicago Blackhawks fall 2-0 to the Colorado Avalanche after a promising start against the Western Conference leaders

The Colorado Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 to extend their winning streak to seven games. It wasn’t the demolition back in October, belied by a 4-2 final score, but a loss for the Hawks likely stings as much.

A Hazy Shade of Winter: Blackhawks at Avalanche

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via Here’s hoping the Blackhawks can at least leave Ball Arena with their dignity. The Blackhawks continue their three-game road trip in Denver on Monday night to face off against the current No. 1 seed in the league by points-percentage: the Colorado Avalanche. Considering the two teams are separated by 22 points apart in the standings, this will arguably be the Blackhawks biggest test of the season. Despite a slow start to the season, the Avalanche have settled into being every bit of the powerhouse everyone expected this season,...
