He also was credited with a game-high six hits. Bickell has three points in his last two outings after going pointless in his previous three contests. He has elevate his offensive game in the playoffs the past two years, but in the regular season it's still difficult to trust his contributions. Still, he's worth keeping an eye on in case he gets streaky. Oct 22 - 9:51 AM

The Blackhawks' third line has not scored a goal this season.

Both Brad Richards and Bryan Bickell have yet to record a point in three games. Kris Versteeg, who is expected to complete the line, is still recovering from injury and Ben Smith who is taking Versteeg's place is also without a point. Bickell and Richards are being counted on to provide some offense despite the fact the Hawks' top two lines are loaded with talent. At least Bickell recognizes he has not played well. "Personally, I need to be a lot better," Bickell said. "I haven't been where I need to be. If I bring that [being physical], hopefully it will spark us and get us going." It will be interesting to see if Bickell and Richards can get it going against the Preds Saturday night.

The Chicago Cubs, hoping that they can live up to the Blackhawks' success, invited several players from the hockey team to Wrigley Field for batting practice.

"Is that the hope for us here? Absolutely," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "The process of turning anything around may seem daunting, but you keep chipping away and it would be great for the Cubs to be a part of that championship landscape." The Blackhawks have become a source of immense pride for Chicago over the past several years. Even though the Blackhawks were unable to successfully defend the Stanley Cup in 2014, Bryan Bickell said he still hears from fans about how proud they are that the Blackhawks battled back from a 3-1 series deficit against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Final.

Bryan Bickell has been bumped down to Chicago's third line.

He skated with Peter Regin and Kris Versteeg during Tuesday's morning session. Jonathan Toews was reunited with Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp in Game 5 and the trio will stay together for the beginning of Tuesday's contest. Bickell should continue to see power-play time, though.

Bryan Bickell registered his sixth goal of the postseason in Game 5 on Sunday.

He scored on the power play on a deflection to tie the game at 1-1 in the second period. The Blackhawks won the match 2-1 to take a 3-2 series lead over Minnesota. All six of Bickell's goals during the 2014 playoffs have come on home ice.

Bryan Bickell tallied three points for the Blackhawks in their 4-1 Game 2 win against the Wild on Sunday.

Bickell, who has points in five straight tilts, scored and assisted twice. The 28-year-old seems to really like the bright lights of postseason play, as he now has eight points this year, after a postseason in which he picked up 17 in 23 games. Brandon Saad netted two goals to give him seven points in the playoffs. Jonathan Toews got the other marker. Marian Hossa chipped in with three assists, and he was also a plus-four. Niklas Hjalmarsson had two assists.

Bryan Bickell scored twice to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 5-2 win over Minnesota Friday.

Bickell opened the scoring with a power play goal and ended it into the empty net as he scored his third and fourth goals in the post-season. Bickell led the Blackhawks in hits with 35 in the first round and added a couple Friday.

Bryan Bickell was ranked first in the league in hits during the playoffs going into Monday night's action.

He amassed a total of 35 in six games against St. Louis. "If I played like this all through the regular season, I would be in the ice tub probably 24 hours," Bickell said. "It's tough hockey, and I want to play it most of the time in the regular season, but it's hard. But playoffs is playoffs, and you do whatever it takes." He also concluded the series with a point (two goals, one assist) in each of his last three matches. Bickell was a force for the Blackhawks a year ago and he's elevating his play again during the 2014 playoffs after a disappointing showing in the regular season.

The Blackhawks have an opportunity to eliminate the St. Louis Blues in Chicago on Sunday.

If the Blackhawks lose this contest, then they will return to St. Louis for Game 7. "We're amped up," Bickell said. "Our fans are going are going to be amped up. You know, it's the biggest game of the year." The Blackhawks have enjoyed quite the turnaround after falling behind 2-0 in the series, but taking Game 7 in St. Louis would be a daunting task for Chicago if the team fails to finish the Blues off in Game 6.

Bryan Bickell scored his first goal of the playoffs in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over St. Louis.

His tip-in late in the third period sent the game into an extra session, where Patrick Kane won it to tie the series at 2-2. Bickell started the contest alongside Jonathan Toews and Kane, but Marian Hossa took Kane's spot later in the match. Bickell also added four shots and a team-leading seven hits during his 18:07 of ice time.

Bryan Bickell racked up eight hits in Game 3 versus St. Louis.

The 2013-14 campaign has been disappointing for Bickell after he signed a four-year, $16 million contract in the summer. He was excellent in the playoffs a year ago, which helped him earn that deal, but he doesn't have a point in three contests yet this series. If he can recapture some of that magic then he could erase some of the hardships he endured during the regular season.
Apr 22 - 8:37 AM

Bryan Bickell netted a goal for the Blackhawks in their 3-2 shootout victory against the Wild on Thursday night.

He had not played since March 19 as he dealt with an upper-body injury. Bickell's 11th goal of the season came in the third period. The rugged winger has just 13 points on the year and is a much more valuable real-life player than fantasy one. Ben Smith picked up the other marker. Brandon Saad, Nick Leddy and Jeremy Morin had the helpers.

Bryan Bickell (upper body) will be back in the lineup on Thursday when Chicago hosts Minnesota.

"He was flying there at practice. He has been skating really well," coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday. "Certainly you can use his size and his speed and his pace and some physicality to his game, which is noticeable. And he definitely was playing his best hockey going into that injury." Bickell has been out of action since Mar. 19 because of an upper-body injury. He has just 10 goals and two assists in 53 games this season.
Apr 3 - 11:32 AM

The Chicago Blackhawks are playing it safe with Bryan Bickell on Sunday, as they're sitting him against the Pittsburgh Penguins because of an upper-body injury.

The Blackhawks note that he'd play if it were the playoffs (real, not fantasy), but they're being cautious. It's doubtful that many have been expecting much from Bickell, really, with just 12 points and 23 PIM in 53 games played this season after a breakout playoffs for the 28-year-old.
