Yesterday, the Blackhawks lost in their 6th Winter Classic/Outdoor Game to the Boston Bruins 4-2. This puts them at a 1-5 record. Icehogs and WJHC updates included, as well as the year-end mailbag.
"Colin Delia with the Stealia" "Toews with game-winner as the Islanders defeat the Blackhawks" "Hawks give up 50 shots, lose again and still think they are a playoff team" Here are a few fake headlines off the top of my head. I thought it would be fun to dive into more top stories from Blackhawks past (fiscal 2018), present and what the future headlines will read for this Chicago team.
The Hawks started last night's game Sloppy… with a capital "S". There were a lot of ups-and-downs but ultimately the Hawks end with a nice 5-3 victory. It's been 29 games since Jeremy Colliton took over. I have been watching very closely but knew to properly analyze a coaching change with the significance that this Quenneville to Colliton had, it was going to take about 30 games or so.
I posed the question last blog: Have Colliton and Bowman Turned Things Around in Chicago? Since then, I've had some good conversations on Twitter and here on the messages boards regarding where this team is at. Here are some areas of improvement that I've narrowed down.
On December 3rd I started a blog that I promised to update. The theme of said blog was looking at all of the Hawks prospects in the pipeline and making All-Start teams of sorts. What I have laid out below are the best-of-the-best Blackhawks prospects that aren't on the official NHL roster.
Well, well, it was an eventful weekend on a couple levels. You all know now that I am Tyler Cameron, Stan trades for Koekkoek and Hawks get more "loser points".
I am working on a Patrick Kane article for this week, but it’s been taking me a bit longer than anticipated because there is just so much “Kane content”. This guy has just incredible this year and I think we tend to take him for granted. I will have something for you all by Friday focusing on #88. For today’s read/chat, I have my “Fast 5” Blackhawks thoughts I wanted to discuss.
