“I think a lot of people, whether guys in this locker room or anyone else, other athletes, who have lost someone close to them and have to find ways to get their minds together and go out there any play as a team … It’s really tough to describe, something that still hasn’t sunk in for most of us yet. But we were definitely playing with heavy hearts out there. “We’re still in disbelief. The fact we went out there and played the way we did, we dedicated that one to our good friend Clint.” Below are tweets from former Blackhawks members on Reif: Just terrible to hear about the passing of Clint Reif. One of the best guys I’ve met through hockey. RIP my friend. #veryfaast Viktor Stalberg (@VStalberg) December 21, 2014 Thoughts and prayers with the Reif family. Such a wonderful person to b around. Brian Campbell (@bcampbell_51) December 21, 2014 Rest in peace Clint. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/blackhawks-assistant-equipment-manager-passes-away-sunday-morning-225437738.html

Toronto Maple Leafs at Chicago Blackhawks - 12/21/2014

Blackhawks Posted: 12/23/2014 11:57:11 AM MST Updated: 12/23/2014 11:59:50 AM MST Colorado goaltender Semyon Varlamov has been troubled by a groin injury this season. (Craig F. Walker, Denver Post file) Rookie goalie sensation Calvin Pickard will remain with the Avalanche through Christmas and is scheduled to start Saturday against the visiting Chicago Blackhawks. But he will serve as Semyon Varlamov’s backup Tuesday night as Colorado’s MVP last season returns from a troubling groin injury, coach Patrick Roy said after Tuesday’s morning skate at the Pepsi Center. Varlamov has missed 12 of the last 14 games and six of the first 19 with the same the ailment. Pickard has been sensational during his absence while playing ahead of Reto Berra, with Pickard’s save percentage climbing to .939, second highest in the NHL. Roy said if Varlamov remains healthy and plays to his standards, Pickard will ultimately be returned to Cleveland and play with the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League. Roy wants the 22-year-old Pickard to continue to play and reassigning him would provide salary relief, because he is on his three-year, two-way entry level contract. “Varly’s the No. 1 guy here,” Pickard said. “He’s healthy now and he deserves to play because he’s a world-class goalie and he was one of the reasons why they were so good last year. source: http://www.denverpost.com/avalanche/ci_27194747/semyon-varlamov-back-net-avs-patrick-bordeleau-out?source=rss

15, 2014, file photo, Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons (28), of Latvia, s BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — It’s Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons and the Chicago Blackhawks leading the NHL All-Star Game fan vote with a little over a week left. The Latvian-born Girgensons still leads all players with nearly 1.3 million votes, the NHL announced Tuesday. The other five eligible spots to be selected are held by Blackhawks. Chicago’s Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are second and third among forwards. Chicago’s Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook lead defensemen, and Corey Crawford leads goalies. Girgensons is the surprise leader thanks to Latvian-based voters, who account for about 80 percent of the second-year player’s total. The only limit on voting is fans can use the same device no more than 10 times a day. Voting closes on Jan. 1, and the game played at Columbus on Jan. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sabres-girgensons-5-blackhawks-lead-star-vote-201856897–nhl.html

Bobrovsky gave all the credit to his teammates. ”The last nine games, they block shots, they sacrifice and they help out a lot,” he said. ”It doesn’t seem like it, that they had (41) shots on goal.” Columbus had not beaten the Blackhawks since Feb. 18, 2011, going 0-11-2 during that span. Jack Skille and Kevin Connauton scored goals in regulation for injury-riddled Columbus, which bounced back from the announcement Saturday morning that it wouldn’t have star center Boone Jenner for one to two months due to a stress fracture in his back. The club continues to battle a mountain of injuries to several top players. ”Big picture, it was a huge two points for us,” Richards said. ”It’s been a good December. We’ll enjoy tonight, definitely because of all the adversity we’ve faced so far.” Patrick Sharp and Ben Smith scored for the Blackhawks, and Corey Crawford made 17 saves in his first game back after missing the last eight with an ankle injury.
