LA Kings Dustin Brown: worst captain in the NHL

la-kings-darryl-sutter-san-jose-sharks

The LA Kings and Chicago Blackhawks head back to Chicago for game five with the Blackhawks up three games to one. One captain helped lead his team in game four. The other? Still looking for him.

Dustin Brown is doing what he does best against Chicago. Hitting, grinding, and being useless on offense. Looking at his stats, Brown is generally reliable. At least 20 goals a season since 2007-08, excluding the current shortened season, good assist numbers, and less than 100 penalty minutes throughout his career.

Chicago Wolves end March on winning streak

Chicago Wolves forward Ty Rattie

The old adage ‘In like a lion, out like a lamb’ applied to the Chicago Wolves venture through March, but a but differently. A slow start to the month turned into a scoring outage, followed by a five-game winning streak against conference opponents. Chicago enters the final stretch of the regular season in the seventh spot of the Western Conference standings. [Read more…]

Chicago Wolves with no answers for scoring issues, add to roster

Chicago Wolves

The Chicago Wolves have been lacking in the goal department and it is hurting their playoff chances. The goal scoring scarcity has been apparent on home ice as well. The Wolves have been shut out in three of their last seven games overall and continue to miss out on solid scoring opportunities in front of the net. Sunday’s loss to division rival Rockford was no exception.

“That’s another two points that we pissed away,” said Wolves head coach John Anderson.

Chicago experienced another up-and-down game, holding the IceHogs to eight shots in the first, but gave up three goals on fourteen shots in the second. [Read more…]

The 21-year old Ontario native has posted an 18-11-3 record this season, with majority of the decisions coming in the past two months. Binnington has started a franchise-record 15 consecutive games in net for Chicago. [Read more…]

stadium-series-l.a.-kings

It won’t happen overnight, or even next year, but it seems outdoor hockey is going the way of aircraft carrier college basketball. Both were transcendent ideas at the time of inception. Both worked beautifully; for a while, but then over-expanded rapidly beyond their demand.

Now with the San Jose Sharks hosting the L.A. Kings Saturday night, in the latest iteration of the NHL Stadium Series, you’ll see the best example yet of outdoor hockey jumping the shark. Apologies for the coincidental pun.

Chicago Wolves end January with a bang

Magnus Paajarvi Chicago Wolves

The Chicago Wolves finished their up-and-down January with a win/loss against in-state foe the Rockford IceHogs, ending/extending their losing streak at three games. Saturday’s game was Chicago’s first after a five game road trip. The team went 2-2-1 away from the Allstate Arena during that time, and 5-5-1-1 overall.

The Wolves enter February locked in a battle for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, eight points behind the IceHogs. Chicago earned six points out of a possible ten in five January games against Rockford. [Read more…]
