Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the hockey world. Chicago Blackhawks' Artemi Panarin was voted a Calder Trophy finalist Monday, and he not only credits Patrick Kane but also Artem Anisimov for the team's second line success in an interview with sport-express.ru's Igor Eronko. More Panarin: Kane pumped my tires or I his? I'd say Anisimov pumped us both.

Artemi Panarin: 'I'll be upset if I don't get the Calder'

The young Russian sensation is one of the NHL's top rookies of the year. Well, we know this much: the Professional Hockey Writers Association believes Artemi Panarin is one of the top three rookies in the NHL. We won't find out if they thought he was the very best, though, until the NHL Awards on June 22 in Las Vegas. There's been a fair amount of controversy surrounding Panarin's season. How could he be voted rookie of the year when he had already spent several seasons playing professionally in the KHL? And just how many points would he have had playing without Patrick Kane, anyway? Both...

It doesn't get much closer than the Blackhawks and the Blues

Both teams have either been tied or separated by a single goal almost the entire series. The Chicago Blackhawks were staring sudden death elimination in the face when Patrick Kane scored to extend the season. That's as close as any team can get to things ending - but it wasn't to be, not yet. And truly, this first round series between the Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues didn't deserve to end in just five games. So as we approach Game 6, the NHL has brought us this handy and, frankly, nail-biting stat: Per @EliasSports: @StLouisBlues / @NHLBlackhawks series has been tied or within one goal...

Happy Hockey Weekend! With the Detroit Red Wings being unceremoniously dumped out of the playoffs by the Lightning, the curtain comes down on the NHL career of one of the greats of this era - Pavel Datsyuk.

The Chicago Blackhawks live to fight another day after a 4-3 double overtime victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 5 on Thursday night.

Patrick Kane finally shows up with game-winning double-overtime goal in Game 5

Showtime shows up. The lack of production from Patrick Kane had been a major storyline surrounding the Hawks the past couple days. So naturally, double-overtime in an elimination game on the road would be the time for the NHL's leading scorer to finally hit the back of the net. This is a simply miraculous play by Kane, one that highlights not only his remarkable skill and athleticism, but his ability to pace himself. The forward had played over 31 minutes before putting together this sequence, where his skates just kept churning while some other players seemed to be moving in molasses....

Kevin Shattenkirk, on defending against Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin: 'It's tough'

Kane and Panarin are two top-10 scorers - good luck to those who have to beat them. Kevin Shattenkirk is a very good defenseman. In fact, one could easily make an argument he's the best the St. Louis Blues have. So when a player of that caliber says defending against certain opponents is tough, you believe him. And as he told Craig Custance on ESPN.com: defending against Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin is tough: When you watch them, they're always within 10 or 15 feet of each other. When one guy has the puck in the neutral zone, the other guy is rushing over, not necessarily to get in the...
