How Many Wins Do The Ducks Need Until They're Taken Seriously?

So what if these Ducks are for real? That isn’t meant to be an insulting question. They had a fantastic regular season, but we’ve seen that twice before, each time before playoff flameouts. They rolled through the first two rounds in the West, but they faced a pair of creampuffs. Their Game 1 win over the heavily… » 5/22/15 9:48am Friday 9:48am

Why Not Allow Kickass Header Goals?

The best moment of last night’s triple-OT Blackhawks win didn’t even count. Andrew Shaw’s headbutt goal in the second overtime was waved off, quite possibly for being too awesome to process at 1 in the morning. Things worked out in the end for Chicago, but did we and future highlight reels really need to be deprived… » 5/20/15 9:23am Wednesday 9:23am

Blackhawks Top Ducks 3-2 In Triple OT

It isn’t the prettiest goal you’ll ever see—and it’s no head goal—but it did the trick just fine. Blackhawks forward Marcus Krüger punched the puck past Frederik Andersen 16 minutes and 12 seconds into the game’s third overtime; the longest game in the Chicago Blackhawks’s 89-year history. (It was only the second… » 5/20/15 2:23am Wednesday 2:23am

Potential Double OT-Winning Goal Disallowed For Being Too Awesome

Hockey players regularly play soccer in the locker room before games, and Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw pulled his best Ronaldo impression when he headed in a goal that left the city of Chicago thinking they’d won Game 2 of the Western Conference Final in double overtime. But no! It turns out that’s illegal. But… » 5/20/15 1:16am Wednesday 1:16am

The Blackhawks Are Too Good To Hate

If it felt like there was more familiarity than usual in the handshake line after the Blackhawks’ sweep of the Wild, maybe that’s no coincidence: it’s the third consecutive season Minnesota has been bounced by Chicago. Not enough familiarity to breed contempt, though, perhaps because the Wild have only won three games… » 5/08/15 9:50am 5/08/15 9:50am

Blackhawks Deny Rumors Of Locker-Room Strife

It's been a very weird week for the Blackhawks, which kicked off with a broken collarbone for Patrick Kane that will see their leading scorer out through May, closed with a pair of significant "we're going for it" trades, and in between saw some thinly sourced rumors take on a life of their own. It's gotten to the… » 3/01/15 2:11pm 3/01/15 2:11pm

Patrick Kane Injured, Could Be Out A Long While

If you're a Chicago sports fan, you are not reading this, because there's no way you're getting out of bed today. On the same night the city realized that Derrick Rose will never ever be the same again, Blackhawks star Patrick Kane went down with an injury that could reportedly keep him out deep into the playoffs. » 2/25/15 9:07am 2/25/15 9:07am

Patrick Kane Turns Marc-Andre Fleury Into A Pile Of Limbs In Shootout

Fine, shootouts are bad at determining the outcomes of games, but let's shelf that argument for another time and instead watch Patrick Kane punk Marc-Andre Fleury with the same effort required to put together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Actually, you probably exert more effort making a peanut butter and jelly… » 2/15/15 5:28pm 2/15/15 5:28pm

Blackhawks Fans Love Some Good Face Licking 

Apparently these fans like getting their face licking on at Blackhawks games, and it seems quite enjoyable judging by the man's orgasmic reaction. This seems like the appropriate time to remind all sports fans that you never know when the camera will be trained on you, so be cautious about doing weird shit at sporting… » 12/06/14 12:10pm 12/06/14 12:10pm
