The Blackhawks have allowed 14 goals in their last three games.
Very uncharacteristic for the Hawks. The team has lost two of those games. What is more distressing is that both losses have come against non-playoff teams--Vancouver and Florida. We suspect Captain Serious, Jonathan Toews, and the rest of the very talented Hawks' players to get their act together for Monday's contest against the Lightning. Mar 26 - 11:52 AM

The Blackhawks allowed the Minnesota Wild to launch 44 shots on goal Sunday and that's a symptom of a larger problem.

Chicago has given its goaltenders plenty of work in 2016-17 as the Blackhawks have allowed an average of 31.3 shots per game, which puts them in the bottom 10. It also means that the Blackhawks have typically been out shot as they've fired an average of 30.3 shots per game. Chicago still has a dominant 43-20-5 record this season, but it might be something that leads to problems during the playoffs.

The Blackhawks will have a few days off as they don't play again until March 9th against the Ducks.

That could be a huge blessing as injured playes Johnny Oduya, Nick Schmaltz and Niklas Hjalmarsson could all have recovered sufficiently by then to return to action.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman admits he's not expecting to make more moves before next Wednesday's trade deadline.

Of course that doesn't mean very much because that could change in a hurry. "I'm not expecting more trades," Bowman said. "I can't predict if more will happen but I have a good feeling about this group right now." The Blackhawks made a move on Friday, as they acquired Tomas Jurco from the Red Wings for a draft pick.

Chicago leads the league in one-goal victories this season with 13.

The Blackhawks own a mark of 13-5-5 in one-goal games going into the holiday break after losses to Ottawa and Colorado last week. Chicago has 35 goals and 21 against in the third period, which has certainly helped. The 21 goals against is the fewest of any team in the third this season.

The Chicago Blackhawks will have $3.07 million of salary cap overages against them in 2016-17.

What that means is that the Blackhawks exceeded the 2015-16 cap by that amount due to performance bonuses being triggered. When that happens, the excess cap hit is carried over to the following season, which essentially puts Chicago behind the curve as far as usable cap space is concerned. That might be part of the reason why they felt clearing Bryan Bickell's $4 million cap hit was so important that they were willing to package him with top prospect Teuvo Teravainen in a trade with Carolina.

Chicago will participate in six preseason games this fall.

The Blackhawks will kick off their schedule by hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sept. 28 and wrap it up by playing in St. Louis on Oct. 8. Chicago's full exhibition schedule will consist of two games against each of the Penguins, Blues, and Detroit Red Wings.

With the late edition of Christian Ehrhoff, the Blackhawks lead all NHL teams with 13 payers set to compete at in the World Cup of Hockey.

Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Corey Crawford, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Marcus Kruger, Tevo Teravainen, Artemi Panarin, Artem Anisimov, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Michal Kempny, Ville Pokka and Ehrhoff will all take part in the tournament. The Hawks should be strong again in 2016-17.

Chicago will probably be looking for a defenseman in the off-season.

Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson are the stalwarts, while Trevor van Riemsdyk emerged as a trustworthy player in 2015-16. The Blackhawks need more depth at the position and Teuvo Teravainen has been mentioned as a possible trade chip to land a blueliner.

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."
