If you are a betting person we would put a buck or two down on the Blackhawks to win Game 6 Saturday night against St. Louis.

Why, you may ask? Well, under coach Joel Quenneville, the Hawks are an amazing 14-1 in Game 6's. That's enough evidence for us to support a Blackhawk win, especially when the game is in Chicago.

Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville reached 800 career wins when the Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins 6-4 on Sunday.

Coach Q joins Scotty Bowman as being the only two coaches to win 800 career games. Quenneville is still 445 wins from surpassing Scotty Bowman's record of 1244 wins. Bowman currently acts as Senior Advisor of Hockey Operations for the Chicago Blackhawks. Quenneville has won three Stanley Cups in his coaching career, all with the Blackhawks. Congratulations on the remarkable achievement coach Quenneville!

Joel Quenneville admits that Stadium Series games are fun, but being focused on the two points is critical.

"It’s an important game for both teams," coach Joel Quenneville said. "They’re coming off a great trip. We had an interesting week ourselves: big win in New York, trip to the White House and being on this stage is a privilege. But at the end of the day you have to be playing for keeps. You want to have fun in this setting, and you have more fun by playing the right way."

The Chicago Blackhawks have been selected as the hosts of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

This will mark the first time that Chicago has hosted the event. "Anytime an NHL event is held in an Original Six city it adds to it the historical element of the NHL and with Chicago hosting the 2017 Draft, their storied history at the Chicago Stadium and their success at the United Center will bring home to all NHL fans and future players the rich traditions that come with playing in the National Hockey League," said Director of NHL Central Scouting Dan Marr. Buffalo is the host city for the 2016 draft.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville exited his post-game press conference Tuesday night after one question.

He was still steamed over a disallowed goal in a 2-0 loss to San Jose. Goaltender interference was ruled on Dennis Rasmussen after a coach's challenge, so a goal by Brandon Mashinter was taken off the board. The Blackhawks have had two goals called back in three games.

Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman has received a three-year extension.

Bowman extended head coach Joel Quenneville's contract for three years just two weeks ago. "I am proud of how much Stan and his staff have accomplished, and have great confidence in his leadership as our organization continues to strive for consistent excellence," said team president John McDonough in a release. "Under Stan's guidance, our hockey operations department is strong across all levels, including scouting, player evaluation and development, and salary-cap management. He has created a sound structure that Blackhawks fans can be excited about for many years to come."

Joel Quenneville became the second winningest coach in NHL history on Thursday night, passing Al Arbour with his 783rd regular season win by virtue of a 2-1 win for the Blackhawks in Montreal on Thursday night.

Coach Q just needs 461 quick wins to tie Scotty Bowman for the most all-time coaching victories. The 57-year-old's first head coaching gig was with the St. Louis Blues in 1996, and he has missed the playoffs just once in nearly 20 years behind the bench.

Chicago has inked head coach Joel Quenneville to a three-year contract extension.

The Blackhawks host Nashville on Tuesday night and Quenneville can tie Al Arbour for second all-time in NHL coaching wins with a victory. Coach Q has amassed 781 coaching wins in his career. He would've entered the final year of his current deal next season and was more than deserving of a re-up.

The Chicago Blackhawks are about to enter a hectic stretch of their schedule.

Chicago will play in 17 games, including three sets of back-to-back contests, over 31 contests, starting with Sunday's contest against Carolina. Given that there's already an 11-point gap between the Blackhawks and Central Division-leading Dallas Stars, this is a critical stretch for Chicago if it wants to stay in the race for the division's top seed. The good news is that Chicago has enjoyed success in the past during similarly compact stretches, so it will be a challenge for the Blackhawks, it won't necessarily be detrimental.

Blackhawks' head coach Joel Quenneville believes that Brent Seabrook is an important part of the team's leadership group on and off the ice.

Seabrook signed a new contract extension on Saturday and he was named an assistant captain earlier this month. "That’s the way he carries himself." Quenneville said. "He’s been here for a lot of years and he’s been a big part of the success that we’ve had. When we talked to the captains, Seabs was always part of that, as well. So, he [already] was one of them." Quenneville has the luxury of relying on one of the best one-two punches on defense in the NHL with Seabrook and Duncan Keith.

The Chicago Blackhawks announced that they will be building a new community training center.

The Hawks and visiting NHL teams will use the training complex to practice, but for the most part, it will be made available to the community. "Hockey's future is dictated by the ability of kids to get on the ice," Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz said in a statement. "For those in urban areas like Chicago, that’s an incredible challenge. We want to provide our community the opportunity to learn how to skate and help them develop a love and passion for the sport that has brought so much joy to Chicago and the region these past few years." The 125,000 square-foot facility will likely cost around $50 million and it will be privately funded.

The Chicago Blackhawks' parade will be on Thursday.

"The City of Chicago is so proud of the Blackhawks, which is why we are going to throw them a celebration that only Chicago can throw - a celebration worthy of a dynasty," said Mayor Emanuel. They have plenty of practice given that this is Chicago's third Stanley Cup in six years. It will begin at Jefferson Street, go through Monroe Street, and then Michigan Avenue.

The Chicago Blackhawks are favorites to win the Stanley Cup again in 2016, per online bookmaker Bovada.

More specifically, Chicago is being given 7/1 odds, which are the best in the league. The New York Rangers rank second with 8/1 while Anaheim (10/1), St. Louis (12/1), and Tampa Bay (12/1) are also in the top-five. Edmonton was given 33/1 odds, which is pretty good given the squad's finish. You can likely thank the presumed addition of Connor McDavid change for that. Buffalo, Arizona, and Carolina finished last with 100/1 odds.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is among those declaring that Chicago is a dynasty.

"On behalf of the city of Chicago, I am thrilled to congratulate hockey's new dynasty - the Chicago Blackahwks - on winning the Stanley Cup for the third time in six years," Emanuel said. "To do it at home in front of the world's most dedicated fans in the world makes this title that much sweeter. Be ready, Chicagoans, because in the coming days we will put on a world class celebration for a world class team." Emanuel's certainly not alone in using the word dynasty as commissioner Gary Bettman was among those to use that terms to describe the Blackhawks. Emanuel also won a bet against Tampa Bay Mayor Bob Buckhorn over the Stanley Cup that will result in Emanuel winning food and beer.
