Chicago Takes Lead

Posted by Decker on 7th June 2010

Sunday night, the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 7-4 to take a 3-2 series lead in the Stanley Cup finals. After letting up three goals in the first period, the Flyers put in backup goalie Brian Boucher to try to stop the bleeding. However, he had just as much failure as Leighton had.

So far, each game has been won by the home team. On Tuesday night, the series heads to Philadelphia, where the Flyers look to take back control.

Dustin Byfuglien tallied two goals and two assists for Chicago. For Philadelphia, Chris Pronger had a +/- of –5, which is the worst of his career, counting both playoffs and the regular season.

Fighting Back

Posted by Decker on 3rd June 2010

Entering Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Flyers found themselves in a 2-0 series deficit against the Chicago Blackhawks. While the Flyers became the third team in history to come back from a 3-0 series lead just two rounds ago, losing game three would have essentially sealed the Stanley Cup going to Chicago.

With the game all tied up, Patrick Kane scored quickly in the third period, which sent the Philadelphia crowd into panic. However, Ville Leino answered a mere 20 seconds later, sending the crowd into a frenzy. In overtime, it looked as if Simon Gagne won the game for the Flyers. With the red light on and the players celebrating, the puck never crossed the line, and thus the potential game-winning goal was taken away. With the Philadelphia crowd in a nervous state, Claude Giroux sent that nervousness away when he scored in overtime, which gave the Flyers a 4-3 victory.

Now down 2-1 in the series, Philadelphia looks to even it up. If they do not, Chicago is in serious command.

Hawks Take 2-0 Lead Over Flyers

Posted by jmw24 on 1st June 2010

The Chicago Blackhawks took a 2-0 series lead over the Philadelphia Flyers last evening, winning an exciting game two, 2-1 in Chicago. The Blackhwaks were led by a stunning third period performance by goaltender Antti Niemi. Niemi was fantastic in the third period, making 15 saves, including several from point blank range when the game was in the balance. Chicago’s Marian Hossa and Ben Eager scored just 28 seconds apart at the end of the second period to take the two goal lead. The Flyers cut the two goal lead in half with a Simon Gagne goal five minutes into the third but were unable to come up with an equalizer.

The Flyers now return home to the Wachovia Center in a 2-0 hole. To say game three is a must win is an understatement. In order for the Flyers to win game three, they do not have to change much. They were the better team for most of game two, they just could not solve Niemi. The Flyers must find a way to slow down Marian Hossa, who has been dominant in the first two games of the series. It would not be surprising if coach Peter Laviolette changed his strategy and matched Mike Richards line against the Hossa line to try and slow him down.

Two Games Away

Posted by Decker on 1st June 2010

It’s June 1st, and the Chicago Blackhawks are two games away from becoming the 2010 Stanley Cup Champions. From a baseball perspective, the White Sox recently won the World Series. The Bulls won enough championships in the 90’s to last a lifetime. And the Bears were recently in the Super Bowl, and lost. Now it is the Blackhawks’ turn to try and win the big one. If the first two games are telling, it is that the Blackhawks are just one step ahead of the Flyers.

Enjoy it, Chicago. The Blackhawks are just outplaying Philadelphia, and it clearly shows. Whether it is the 6-5 goal scoring marathon victory, or the 2-1 defensive-oriented victory, Chicago has been one step ahead of Philadelphia.

Here is a song to celebrate to: http://ow.ly/1QVL0

Campbell’s return a game-time decision

Posted by GameSetMatch on 22nd April 2010

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell is listed as a game-time decision Thursday for Game 4 against the Nashville Predators.

It is possibly paving the way for Campbell’s first action since March 14, when he was hit by Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin.

Campbell suffered a fractured clavicle and rib in that collision, which cost the Washington Capitals’ star a two-game suspension, handed down by the league.

The Predators own a 2-1 series lead, and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was asked whether trailing in the series dictates Campbell’s return.

“It’s a good question,” he said Thursday morning. “It’s tough to measure something like that.

“When you’re ready to play, you’re ready to play. When you talk to players that have been out for a while, they know their body, they know when they’re ready. We’ll see.”

Niemi makes 23 saves for shutout as Blackhawks recover from loss

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th April 2010

Antti Niemi’s mind was clear and his game was sharp. It was just what the Chicago Blackhawks needed to even up their first-round series with the Nashville Predators

“I just wanted to get ready like every other game. I didn’t want to think about too much,” Niemi said after making 23 saves in his second career playoff game to help the Blackhawks beat the Predators 2-0 on Sunday night.

Niemi, a rookie, didn’t dwell on his first playoff game two nights earlier when he gave up two goals, one on a bouncing puck in a 4-1 loss in the series opener. That loss put Sunday night’s game into the must-win category for the Blackhawks with Games 3 and 4 in the Western Conference series slated for Nashville on Tuesday and Thursday.

“You don’t want to focus on, ‘This is a big game.’ You want it to be like every other,” Niemi said.

Hawks Get Back To Work

Posted by TheHockeyGuy on 3rd March 2010

Patrick Sharp summed up the feeling in the Blackhawks’ locker room best.

”We’re sick of practicing, and we’re ready to play some games,” Sharp said Monday before the team departed for New York, where they face the Islanders tonight.

”It’s been a long time since our last game, and we’ve done just about everything you can do at practice. The guys here are ready. We’re looking forward to meeting up with our Olympians in New York and putting the team back together.”

The road ahead of them? Twenty-one games against some of the NHL’s best teams, including the Washington Capitals. So there’s a lot to digest before the Hawks begin the postseason. Here are some things to keep an eye on:

Everything starts with the trade deadline, which is 2 p.m. Wednesday. The Hawks need to shed salaries for next season while maintaining most of the roster for a playoff run this year.

Hawks general manager Stan Bowman has made one move that accomplished that, sending defenseman Cam Barker and his $3 million-plus cap hit to the Minnesota Wild for veteran Kim Johnsson, whose contract expires at the end of the season, and prospect Nick Leddy. It was viewed as a win-win for both teams.

Patrick Kane Happy To Be Back In Vancouver. Really.

Posted by TheHockeyGuy on 16th February 2010

Patrick Kane isn’t one to avoid the spotlight.

The Blackhawks winger tends to thrive when the attention is focused his way. As the NHL’s highest scoring American entering the Olympics , Kane will have the eyes of the world watching when the United States plays Switzerland in opening-round action.

He wouldn’t have it any other way.

“It only happens once every four years. It’s the highest stage you can play at so it’s pretty exciting,” Kane said Monday before the U.S. took the ice to practice at Canada Hockey Place.

“It’s kind of cool to have the whole country at your back. Not just a city, but the whole country is rooting for you.”

At 21, Kane is the youngest member of Team USA and also one of its most confident. He knows the U.S. is an underdog in a tournament that features powerhouses Canada, Russia and Sweden, among others.

“I’m sure everyone here doesn’t want us to win but that’s the way it is,” Kane said. “We’re pretty excited about the challenge. We’re not coming here just to win bronze or silver. I can honestly say everyone in there wants to win gold.”
