Chicago Blackhawks

It doesn’t get much better than this! Well it does, but that was back in 2010, 2013, and 2015. Since winning three Stanley Cups in six years, the Chicago Blackhawks have struggled, especially in this 2018-19 season. So when a blockbuster coaching change, two eight-game losing streaks, and difficult personnel changes finally culminate in a season-high seven-game winning streak, it’s something to get excited about. The Hawks won two important matchups before their extended break in late January, and have since added five more, including three wins this past week. They earned six more points in a very tight Western Conference wild-card race. There are no guarantees, but each win is keeping the Blackhawks’ playoff hopes alive. Here’s a more detailed look at these three recent triumphs. Blackhawks’ Week 19 Matchups @ Edmonton Oilers, Tues. 2/5, Win 6-2 Vs. Vancouver Canucks, Thurs. 2/7, Win 4-3 OT Vs.

As a team, their efforts and hard work are finally paying off. But the month of February also brings the trade deadline. This season, rumors are swirling regarding changes for the Blackhawks, specifically on the defensive end. The organization has some tough decisions to make in the coming weeks. But meanwhile, it's business as usual on the ice. Let’s start with the positive. Blackhawks' Last Four Wins Vs. Washington Capitals, Sun. 1/20, Win 8-5 Vs. New York Islanders, Tues. 1/22, Win 3-2 (SO) @ Buffalo Sabres, Fri. 2/1, Win 7-3 @ Minnesota Wild, Sat. 2/2, Win 4-3 (OT) Overall Record: 20-24-9, 49 points That’s right, four wins in a row!

Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's rumor rundown, there is a ton of news out of the Headlines Segment from Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday. The panel covered everything from Brent Seabrook being asked to consider a trade to the specifics on an Auston Matthews deal to Taylor Hall potentially being traded by this year's deadline. Seabrook Asked to Waive No-Move Clause Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported Saturday during the Headlines segment of Hockey Night in Canada that Brent Seabrook has been asked to waive his no-move clause. To this point, Seabrook has said no. While Seabrook doesn't want to leave the Blackhawks, the organization may still look around and see what interest is out there. Even if he were to change his mind and waive, he's certainly not an inexpensive addition for a club. SearbookHe's got six years remaining on a $6.875 million deal per season and he's not exactly crushing it in terms of production. That said, he is on pace to do better than last year's...

NHL Rumors

In today's rumor rundown, there is news that the Tampa Bay Lightning have looked into two popular forwards on the trade market, the Oilers are considering an extension for a surprise roster player, the Blackhawks might ask a star to waive his no-move clause and the Bruins are looking to add a forward. Lightning In On Simmonds and Ferland TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting that while the Tampa Bay Lightning might have trouble adding significant pieces considering their mere $1.7 million in salary cap space, they have inquired about both Wayne Simmonds from the Philadelphia Flyers and Micheal Ferland from the Carolina Hurricanes. Dreger explained that trick will be whether or not the Lightning are willing to send something back, especially in the case of Micheal Ferland. The Hurricanes are rumored to want to add to their scoring and that's why a team like Toronto didn't make a deal for Brett Pesce or Dougie Hamilton (they weren't willing to give up a roster...
