Blackhawks’ Hossa may have Hall of Fame resume – Yahoo Sports

They are very tight, just as the players are, across the league. When a member goes down, they all want to show their respect. “I made a phone call to Joel, the trainers called the trainers. We didn’t want to take anything away from what Chicago was doing and representing, but we wanted to do it, so we reached out to Chicago and asked them. And they were gracious enough to do it.” Among those especially touched by the move was Washington’s Troy Brouwer, a former Blackhawk. “Clint was an awesome guy. He always made us laugh,” Brouwer said. “He always had fun with us. He loved what he did. He’s going to be missed. I can’t say enough about him.” Brouwer had asked Capitals equipment manager Brock Myles about wearing a CR sticker and the idea spread to the entire Washington squad. source: http://news.yahoo.com/outdoor-foes-pay-tribute-chicago-manager-232035629–nhl.html

NHL: Toews’ SO goal lifts Blackhawks over Predators 5-4 – Daily Republican Register: Daily Republican Register

“Down 3-0 to a team that doesn’t give up a whole lot, checks well and then you have to pull the goalie and try to get an equalizer. It was a big swing, big turn of events.” Brad Richards, Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa scored in a 7:10 span late in the second period to tie it at after the Predators built a 3-0 lead. “We’re a good team in here for a reason,” Bickell said. “We’ve come back from leads like this before. Just find a way.” James Neal’s second goal of the game, a power-play tally with 56 seconds left in the second period, put Nashville ahead 4-3. Roman Josi and Craig Smith also scored, and Colin Wilson added two assists, but the Predators couldn’t hold on in regulation. “(The Blackhawks) have a lot of high-end talent all the way down throughout their lineup,” Neal said. “The only way to beat that is you have to be on the offense more than them and you have to be physical with their skill guys. “I thought we did a good job shooting pucks and going to the net. Just a few little things, we clean that up and we can win the hockey game.” Rinne made 38 saves, and Crawford stopped 36 shots before his perfect shootout as the division rivals met for the fourth and final time in the regular season. Chicago won the series 3-1. “Those two points are going to come in handy down the road,” Shaw said. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-toews-so-goal-lifts-blackhawks-over-predators/article_d92d933c-9049-11e4-9fdb-b7a8807ea3f5.html

It means Im older, Hossa said. Im just glad I can still play. His consistency at both ends of the ice helps make the Blackhawks perennial Stanley Cup contenders. The 35-year-old Hossa passed the 1,100-game mark this season. On a team led by Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, Hossa is one of the NHLs best defensive forwards. He just flies on the backcheck. Theres a lot of guys that skate a lot faster going forward than they do coming back to their own end, and hes not that way, Kane said. Hes so good at stripping the puck. Hes also good in these one-on-one battles where more often than not youre going to see him coming away with the puck. He doesnt seem to get any older, either. He seems to get better and better each year. This is Hossas 16th full NHL season and he remains a key cog for the Blackhawks, who have won the Cup twice in the past five years and visit the Washington Capitals on Thursday in the Winter Classic. Hossa is averaging 0.64 points a game, the lowest since his rookie year with the Ottawa Senators, but his two-way game is responsible for preventing more than a few goals against. source: http://www.observer-reporter.com/article/20141230/SPORTS04/141239968

Observer-Reporter | Blackhawks’ Hossa may have Hall of Fame in future

They had a 10-7-1 record at the time and were starting to play decent hockey, but the six-game road trip was going to provide a major test. With the Blackhawks (and the NBA’s Bulls) booted out of the United Center in favor of the circus, they had to prove themselves in a trip that took them to Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Colorado, Los Angeles and Anaheim. They opened the trip with a tough 4-3 victory Nov. 20 over the upstart Flames before rolling past the Oilers 7-1. They had little in the tank Nov. 23 when they took on the Canucks and dropped a 4-1 decision. The Blackhawks quickly put that defeat behind them and closed the trip with victories over the Avalanche , Kings and Ducks . The final two victories over Los Angeles and Anaheim were impressive 4-1 triumphs, as they clearly outplayed those two Pacific Division powers. The Blackhawks could have stumbled or even fallen apart on the trip, but they found their stride and have remained on track since then. 3.
