Despite furious comeback, Blackhawks fall 4-3 to Hurricanes in Jeremy Colliton’s debut

Despite furious comeback, Blackhawks fall 4-3 to Hurricanes in Jeremy Colliton’s debut

Chicago allows four unanswered goals early. The first game of the Jeremy Colliton Era for the Blackhawks did not go as planned in a 4-3 loss to the Hurricanes on Thursday at the United Center. In fact, for 22 minutes it looked disastrous. The Hurricanes struck three times in the opening period. Andrei Svechnikov buried the first goal on a rebound after he swept it past Corey Crawford while falling down. Jaccob Slavin found a loose puck on a rebound and buried it three minutes later. Phillip Di Giuseppe then scored on a 3-on-1 rush to push the Carolina lead to 3-0. It didn’t get much...

Canes at Blackhawks: Game Night Hub

Canes at Blackhawks: Game Night Hub

A reunion night for Scott Darling is a little less sweet this time, as both teams need to get back on the winning side of the box score. The Canes are finally coming to the close of their troublesome four-game road trip tonight in Chicago. Just to make it clear: no, this will not be the reunion with Cam Ward on the ice. Our longtime goaltender will likely be slated to start net on Monday in Carolina — a more fitting time for tribute. Instead, Corey Crawford (3-4-0, 2.92 GAA) will get the start after going 36-for-40 in net in a loss to Calgary on Saturday. However, Scott Darling’s...

Let’s see what the team trends are after back-to-back defeats in western Canada over the last two nights: Three up Goaltending Once again, it’s hard to pin either of the last two losses on Corey Crawford or Cam Ward. Crawford kept the Blackhawks close against the Canucks, as Chicago regressed over the final 30 minutes of the game and allowed...

Hawks begin West Coast swing against Canucks

Hawks begin West Coast swing against Canucks

Chicago was 0-3 against Vancouver last season. After a much needed two days off, the Blackhawks drop the puck on their Western Canadian road trip Wednesday night in Vancouver against the Pacific Division-leading Canucks. Saturday and Sunday weren’t very good to the Blackhawks, after dropping one on the road to St. Louis, 7-3, and losing 2-1 in overtime to Edmonton at home Sunday. The Blackhawks collected only one point during the weekend, and now sit one point behind the Predators and Avalanche in the Central Division standings. Corey Crawford, who’s looking to bounce back from the...

Blackhawks at Blues preview: Three times in one month?

Blackhawks at Blues preview: Three times in one month?

Who planned this? Whoever in the NHL’s scheduling department decided to have the Blues and Blackhawks play three times in October, please raise your hand. You need to be fired. Listen, it kills some fun when you see your biggest rival three times in a short time span. It kills more of the fun when your team is spinning its wheels trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with it. Sure, the Blues have gotten two points from the Hawks so far. It should be four. Now that Corey Crawford is healthy and back, it’ll probably remain at four. Sorry if I seem fatalistic. When you have a team...

Crawford propels Hawks to 4-1 win over Rangers

Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat each score a goal to extend their point streaks. Much like the Blackhawks’ team mantra, Corey Crawford only likes allowing one goal. That’s as many as he’s allowed in three of his four outings this season. Thursday night wasn’t all Crawford, who made 18 saves and even picked up an assist. Patrick Kane scored his ninth goal of the season and the defense limited the Rangers to 19 shots in a 4-1 win Thursday at the United Center. The Blackhawks’ (6-2-2) offense started hot, with Jonathan Toews scored less than three minutes into the game on a...
