Hawks win a thriller late in Columbus

By Michael Calvert

The Hawks stole at least one point from the Blue Jackets last night.  The Jackets came into the game clinging to a one point lead for the second wild card spot in the East, and with one game in hand.  With that being said the Jackets needed these points badly and came within 2.5 seconds of getting at least one.  This, two days after Colorado erased a 2-goal BJ lead in the 3rd period and beat Columbus in the shootout.   I suppose it’s a tough week to be a BJ fan, tougher than usual anyway.

Typically sporting the IceHogs jersey, Jeremy Morin and Jokim Nordstrom suited up for this game.  I suppose we can count on the Hawks not burning a contract year on Teuvo Teravainen.   I am a little disappointed personally, but it’s likely for the better. Read more »

Odds and Saads: Morin’s shot, Teuvo plan, Carey signing, Hartman, Johns and more

By Chris Block

MORIN’s OPPORTUNITY

Don’t wait for the IceHogs’ leading goal scorer to be back in Rockford, at least for the time being.

Jeremy Morin was told he is up with the Blackhawks for the remainder of the season.

So, unless there is some major change in direction, don’t expect him to be back in Rockford before then, if ever.

I suppose there is a chance he’d return to Rockford in the event the IceHogs team makes the playoffs and the Blackhawks are healthy enough to the point Morin slides down the depth chart far enough.  But that would also have to mean Teuvo Teravainen would play outstanding enough that the Blackhawks would no longer care about burning a year on Teravainen’s slide-eligible entry level contract – which contrary to what is being insinuated publically, they are not planning to do so at this time.

–In case you missed it last week, Odds and Saads will be a weekly feature here on TheThirdManIn.com.  This is part one of two for this week.

TEUVO TIME

Teuvo Teravainen will make his NHL regular season debut for the Blackhawks when they host the Dallas Stars at the United Center. Read more »

Blackhawks held scoreless By Nashville, Lose 2-0

By Jon Fromi

The Chicago Blackhawks fell prey to the close to the vest style of Barry Trotz and the visiting Nashville Predators. Nashville may not be going to the playoffs but that didn’t stop them from holding the Hawks scoreless Sunday night, handing Chicago a 2-0 defeat.

First Period-Chicago outshot the Predators 11-6 but still managed to find itself on the short end of a 1-0 deficit.

Both teams were active early, with Sheldon Brookbank facing off against Rich Clune at the 5:56 point of the opening period. Chicago gained a power play opportunity in the ninth minute when Matt Cullen hooked Kris Versteeg but the Hawks couldn’t manage much. Read more »

Hawks take the ‘Canes 3-2 at the UC

By Brad Vandenberk

The St. Louis Who’s?  The Hawks finally tackled their demons and beat the Blues on Wednesday proving that they can beat anyone when they turn it up a notch.  Not only did they turn it up, they made it very uncomfortable for a very good Blues teams in all situations.  Corey Crawford made some very good saves to obtain his 10th career shutout.

Among all the celebrating, there was a significant loss suffered by the Hawks.  Patrick Kane was accidentally landed on while in an awkward position and seemed to twist his knee, leaving during the second period.

It was announced Friday that Kane was shut down for the remainder of the regular season and placed on long term injury reserve.   There is method to the Hawks madness.  This was one of the only options the Hawks had get Teuvo Teravainen up to the big squad.  He sported the Indian head this morning during the morning skate with teammates welcoming him as well as fans as the skate was streamed live.

Tonight’s game sees the Carolina Hurricanes enter the UC with a few key Hawks out of the line up.  Read more »

Odds and Saads: Teravainen, Future Watch

By Chris Block

I’ve been meaning to cook up something of a weekly feature here on the site as a way of producing more regular content.  Given Monday is a notable day in this site’s history, I am finally putting that into action now with “Odds and Saads.”  My plan is for this to be a late-Sunday night for Monday thing.

The title really is more influenced by The Who album having a good ring to it as this is designed to be a freeform random thoughts and news kind of thing.  It’ll mostly be Blackhawks focused, of course, but it will not be bound by Hawks topics.

-Wanted to thank everyone who complimented the podcasts with HockeeNight and The Committed Indian last week.

If you missed it, I was on “Live from the Five Hole” with Sam and Matt from TheCommittedIndian.com site last Friday.  My segment was taped Monday night, the 10th.

You can listen to it here.  I join the show about 12 minutes in and my portion is about a half hour long.  It was mostly a discussion of prospects in Rockford, prospect development and the Brandon Pirri situation.  Read more »

IceHogs extend point streak to 11, but blow 3 leads in process; Lose 5-4 in overtime at Oklahoma City

By Chris Block

Rockford capped off the best month of its AHL existence on Friday night, though in a 5-4 overtime loss before 3,853 fans at Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

The IceHogs picking up a point in the loss to the Oklahoma City Barons not only extended the team’s streak of consecutive contests earning at least a point to 11 games (9-0-1-1), but it also meant Rockford went unbeaten in regulation over an entire month for the first time since they joined the American Hockey League in 2007.

Rockford held and lost the lead three times on Friday.  Bobby Shea and Terry Broadhurst each scored twice for the ‘Hogs.  For Shea it was his 2nd and 3rd goals of the season.  Terry Broadhurst notched his 12th and 13th tallies. Read more »

Viktor Svedberg could be done for the season; IceHogs extend point streak to 10; Jeremy Morin too [UPDATED]

By Chris Block

[Update 3:00p 2/26/14] On Wednesday afternoon, Viktor Svedberg, via his Twitter account (@Svedberg8) that he is undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery today.

Svedberg wrote, “On my way to shoulder surgery, would like to thank Icehogs, [Blackhawks], fans and my teammates for this season! Hope to see you again next year!”

We’ll know more later this week, but word out of IceHogs’ camp is defenseman Viktor Svedberg could be done for the season.

Svedberg, 22, last played on February 14th in a game against the Chicago Wolves in Rockford.  Svedberg appeared to have suffered an upper body injury during the second period of that contest.  He finished the game but has not played since.

There is no official confirmation at this point on Svedberg’s exact injury.

This season, the 6’9” first year North American blue liner has appeared in 35 games for the IceHogs, tallying 2 goals and 7 assists to go with a plus-4 even strength plus/minus rating.

When asked for an update on Svedberg’s status this past weekend, Rockford coach Ted Dent said it was “day-to-day, right now.”  Since then, the team has received some bad news. Read more »
