Toronto Maple Leafs

CHICAGO — Patrick Kane had two goals and an assist, Robin Lehner made 53 saves and the Chicago Blackhawks struck early and then held off the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 on Sunday night. Jonathan Toews, rookie Kirby Dach and Brandon Saad also scored. Alex DeBrincat had three assists and Dylan Strome added two. William Nylander scored twice for the Maple Leafs, and John Tavares and Andreas Johnsson added power-play goals in the third as Toronto stormed back with 26 shots in the final period.

Pittsburgh Penguins

PITTSBURGH — Jake Guentzel and Jared McCann scored in a shootout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins ended a 10-game losing streak against the Chicago Blackhawks by rallying for a 3-2 victory Saturday night. Pittsburgh beat the Blackhawks for the first time since March 30, 2014 by scrambling back from a two-goal deficit. Guentzel's eighth of the season late in the second period gave the Penguins life, and Rust's fifth since his return from injured reserve tied it midway through the third period. Matt Murray finished with 29 saves for the Penguins and turned away Jonathan Toews and Alex DeBrincat in the shootout. Pittsburgh played most of the third period without captain Sidney Crosby, who left with an undisclosed injury. Patrick Kane collected his sixth goal of the season for Chicago and scored in the shootout. Dominik Kubalik added his fourth for Chicago. Corey Crawford made 29 saves but couldn't stop Guentzel or McCann in the shootout. Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick...

What a week for the Chicago Blackhawks. After a rough 1-2-1 road trip that featured an overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday with just 16.6 seconds remaining, a 3-2 overtime win against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, and an abysmal showing against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, the Blackhawks bounced back in a major way against the Vancouver Canucks with a 5-2 victory where they took the lead early and never looked back. The loss was Vancouver’s first regulation loss since Oct. 19. Puck control and opposing shots on goal have been a big problem for Chicago during their season-long struggles, so it was refreshing to see them play a complete game against the Canucks. It’s difficult to gauge which way the team as a whole is trending after the up-and-down week. While we wait and see if it was just a one-off, or if the team is actually starting to figure it out, let’s take a look at whose stock is trending up, and whose stock is trending down this past...

Blackhawks Goaltending

There aren't many goalie performances to dissect from Wednesday night, but it is a historic day for hall of famer Glenn Hall. Also, we'll dissect one of the strangest goals you'll ever see, and check in on the two teams in Sweden. Wednesday Wrap-Up Wednesday was a light night of NHL action with just two games. Henrik Lundqvist looked strong for the New York Rangers, saving 35 of 36 shots against the Detroit Red Wings. Jimmy Howard struggled to find traction, allowing four goals on 30 shots. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) In the other game, Mike Smith's run of form hit a wall of one of the hottest teams in hockey, the St. Louis Blues. Jake Allen had his first strong start of the season (though he still let in one head-scratcher), powering the Blues to victory with 32 saves on 34 shots. This Date in History: Hall's Streak Ends Glenn Hall is one of the most successful and enduring goaltenders in NHL history. After all, he's called...

Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks enter this week’s action after picking up three points in their two games over the past weekend. After dropping an overtime matchup with the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, they bounced back Sunday with a quick OT win over the Anaheim Ducks thanks to a classic Jonathan Toews to Patrick Kane game-winner just as extra time began. Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane (AP Photo/Kelvin Kuo) The Hawks remain on the West Coast and will take on the San Jose Sharks tonight before heading back home to host the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. A quick trip to Pittsburgh to face the Penguins opens the weekend, followed by a home game on Sunday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Still looking for a rhythm this season, the Blackhawks have an opportunity to pad their point total during the next few games with some struggling opponents, poised in the middle of the pack and shorthanded due to injury. Tuesday, Nov. 5 @ Sharks Like the Blackhawks, the...

We’ll cover highlights, scores, and trends as we follow the team’s progress together; for better or for worse! Similar to last week, the Chicago Blackhawks managed to salvage another rather brutal week with a win on Sunday night. It got better as they went along. There was an ugly loss to the Predators, a crazy comeback that fell short in overtime versus the Kings, and a tooth-and-nail battle against the Ducks that ended in a OT. Phew!    The big news this week was the announcement of 18-year-old Kirby Dach sticking around for the season, and the call-up of 19-year-old Adam Boqvist. How are these two youngsters contributing so far? And what else is afoot with the Blackhawks? I’m glad you asked. Blackhawks’ Matchups of the Week @ Nashville Predators, Tues. 10/29,...
