Crawford has been excellent this season with a 1.86 goals-against average and .945 save percentage through seven starts. He also has a 5-2-0 record.
Oct 23 - 5:45 PM

Lance Bouma chose a great time to score his first goal as a member of the Blackhawks.

Bouma broke a 2-2 tie with just 4:24 left in regulation on Saturday night against Arizona. He also added an assist in the contest for his first points in nine games this season.
Oct 23 - 12:01 PM

Jordan Oesterle finally got into Chicago's lineup this week.

Oesterle was a healthy scratch for the first seven games of the year. He made his season debut against his former team, the Edmonton Oilers, on Thursday and he was back in the lineup Saturday versus Arizona. Chicago has eight defenders on the roster. Michal Kempny has been the odd man out for the last two contests.
Oct 22 - 5:06 PM

Tommy Wingels scored a goal and registered an assist in Chicago's 4-2 win against Arizona on Saturday.

Prior to that contest, Wingels had bene fairly quiet offensively in 2017-18 with an assist in six games. He's not going to be much of an offensive threat overall and we don't recommend owning him in standard fantasy leagues.

Corey Crawford stopped 27 of 29 shots in a 4-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.

Crawford continues his dominance to start the season. He has now allowed two goals or less in five of his seven starts and boasts an impressive 1.86 goals against average and .945 save percentage. After an early exit from the playoffs last season, Crawford looks like he is out to prove his doubters wrong. His record improves to 5-2-0 on the year.

Jonathan Toews picked up two assists in a 4-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

Toews picked up his first assist after Richard Panik buried his rebound to tie the game for the Blackhawks midway through the first. His second came after he sent Kane in all alone on Domingue and no. 88 put the puck through the netminder's five-hole to give Chicago the lead. Toews broke his three-game pointless streak and now has eight points in nine games this season.

The Chicago Blackhawks have scratched Cody Franson from their starting lineup against the Arizona Coyotes tonight.

Franson has two assists in two games for Chicago, but will be scratched from tonight's lineup. This will be the fourth time in five games for the 30-year old. He'll sit in the press box along with Michal Kempny and Tanner Kero.

Corey Crawford will start for the Chicago Blackhawks against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

Crawford is 9-2-2 lifetime against the Coyotes, and he'll look for his 10th win all-time against them tonight. The netminder has a record of 4-2-0 this season, starting the year winning his first three. He's been 1-2-0 since but his lifetime record against Arizona should convince you to start him for fantasy purposes.

Chicago's power play ranks 23rd in the NHL.

The Blackhawks went 0-for-5 with the man advantage on Thursday night versus Edmonton. They also failed to cash in during a 5-on-3 for 56 seconds. "The 5-on-3, we had some great looks around the net," coach Joel Quenneville said. "A lot of loose pucks that we just didn’t find the handle [on], we're not anticipating or sniffing them out around the net. Some close looks but no finish."
Oct 20 - 10:34 AM

Duncan Keith registered an assist in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to Edmonton.

Keith has collected a helper in each of the last three games to give him a total of five on the year.
Oct 20 - 10:29 AM

Anton Forsberg stopped 40 of 42 shots in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Forsberg had no chance on Patrick Maroon's first-period goal and Edmonton's game-winning goal in overtime was scored on the power play. Forsberg has now lost both of his appearances in the extra frame. The Blackhawks backup goalie will enter his next game with a 2.80 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage this season. He has no fantasy value.
Oct 19 - 11:49 PM

Patrick Kane found the back of the net in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Kane scored the game's first goal at 7:33 mark of the first period, but Patrick Maroon tied the game less than 10 minutes later. The 'Hawks forward finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, five shots on goal and one hit in 22:37 of ice time. Kane has now picked up a point in four consecutive games. He's up to three goals and seven assists in eight games this season. Kane should finish somewhere in the top five when it comes to scoring this year.
Oct 19 - 11:40 PM

Cody Franson will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

He has two assists in two games this season. Franson has now been scratched in three of Chicago's last four games. Michal Kempny and Tommy Wingels will also watch the game from the press box.

Ryan Hartman tallied his third goal of the season in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to St. Louis.

Hartman scored one of Chicago's two power-play goals in the contest. The other was recorded by Richard Panik. Hartman has picked up nine points in the first seven games of the year.
