BLOG: Englund Rejoins Blackhawks Following Injury

The Swedish defenseman exited the game against the Ottawa Senators due to a hamstring injury.

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 /

After leaving the game against the Ottawa Senators with a hamstring injury, Andreas Englund rejoined the Blackhawks on Wednesday in Washington D.C. before the team takes on the Capitals on Thursday night. 

Head coach Luke Richardson noted that it was important to have Englund back to try and have him practice with the team after skating on his own for the last few days. With one team practice down, Richardson will see how the defenseman feels after a few more practices so he can return to the lineup. 

"I think we want to get in with the team as quick as possible to practice," Richardson said. "Since we're on the road, they can skate on their own all they want, but it's still not the same as with the team. So, they're available, I think we'll see how everything goes today and how they feel after today for the rest of the week."

TAKEAWAYS: Blackhawks Shutdown by Avalanche

The Blackhawks failed to capitalize on a scoring opportunity and shutout by the Avalanche.

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 /

Despite playing strong throughout the first two periods against the Colorado Avalanche, the Blackhawks struggled to find the back of the night in the 5-0 loss at Ball Arena on Monday night. 

While the score remained at 2-0 during the first 40 minutes, Caleb Jones thought the team could keep up with their opponents. However, with a fast-paced and skilled team like the Avalanche, they kept all lines going and shut the Blackhawks down. 

"It's tough, obviously not the result we wanted," Jones said. "They're a good team, they just keep coming at you. They kind of roll four lines, and they all play fast and emphasis on high end players, and they just got the better of us."

BLOG: Blackhawks Penalty Kill Prepares for Top-Ranked Avalanche Unit

The Blackhawks has successfully killed their last eight penalty kill opportunities since March 10 against the Florida Panthers

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 /

As the Blackhawks prepare to take on the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night, Chicago's penalty kill looks to continue their successful ways against the top-ranked power play unit. 

For Jarred Tinordi, he noted that with the addition of some new faces acquired from the March 3 trade deadline, the unit has been able to connect instantly. In their last few games, the unit has been able to shut down top teams like the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins due to the pressure they are able to maintain. 

"I think we kind of just started meshing a little bit more now, I think just kind of paying off a little bit for us," Tinordi said. "I think when we get passive, that's when bad things start to happen. So, we've been trying to stay aggressive when we can enforce the pressure and it's been going well, so far."

TAKEAWAYS: Blackhawks Suffer Loss to Coyotes

The Blackhawks suffered another loss to the Coyotes at Mullett Arena on Saturday night

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 /

While the Blackhawks kicked off the scoring 35 seconds into the matchup, it wouldn't be enough to try and beat the Arizona Coyotes. 

Heading into the third period, the score was tied at 1-1, but the few costly turnovers only made it harder for the team to come back. Jarred Tinordi noted that the puck simply was not going their way against the Coyotes, who have now won 20 games at Mullett Arena this season.  

"I think we had a couple plays where we could have just chipped it maybe behind their [defense] and make them go back for it," Tinordi said. "We didn't get it or it either hit somebody or kind of bounced up and got clogged up and made us pay for it. So, we got a little bit harder in those areas."

BLOG: Blackhawks Return to Mullett Arena, Kaiser Makes Debut

Heading into Saturday's contest against the Coyotes, the Blackhawks look to repeat their recent wins while Wyatt Kaiser will make his NHL debut

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 /

As the team continues to embark on their five-game road trip, the Blackhawks look to bring their successful ways into tonight's matchup against the Arizona Coyotes. 

Jujhar Khaira, who's line has been creating offensive production over the last few games, noted the team needs to stick together to keep the wins coming. 

"We cannot change a thing," Khaira said. "We just have to go out there, play simple, get it in and get to work. I think that's where our success comes from, and we try to remind each other before every game so we're each other's ears and we're just working for each other."

BLOG: Third Line Building Off Instant Chemistry

The line of Joey Anderson, Boris Katchouk and Jujhar Khaira has put up seven points in the last two games.

by Sarah Meadow /

It's no secret that after the trade deadline, things looked a lot different on the ice for the Blackhawks. With that comes a tough task of building chemistry and finding confidence for new and older players.

The offensive pairing of Joey Anderson, Boris Katchouk, and Jujhar Khaira has seemed to find their stride as of late, with the three combining for seven points in the last two games.

"We've had more chances and been able to find a way to put them in [the net] when we get them," Anderson said. "As a line, I feel like we've been more connected, and we're all kind of on the same page where the pucks are going. And that's led to us being able to sustain offensive zone time, and create more chances for for ourselves."

FEATURE: Guttman, Mitchell Reconnect from Denver to Chicago

Before the two joined the Blackhawks, Guttman and Mitchell spent two seasons together at the University of Denver.

by Sarah Meadow /

When Cole Guttman scored his first NHL goal on Feb. 19 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the first person to celebrate him was none other than Ian Mitchell. Before the two shared the ice together in Chicago, they spent two seasons together at the University of Denver, with Mitchell as Guttman's captain in 2019-20.

With eight minutes to go in the third period, the Blackhawks were tied with the Maple Leafs 3-3. After snagging a goal off the boards from a missed shot by Toronto, Guttman took the puck to the back of the net to put the Blackhawks up 4-3. Immediately after, Mitchell rushed to his side to rejoice with him.

"I looked up and saw him and really couldn't have drawn that up better," Guttman said of seeing Mitchell right after his goal. "I've been through a lot with that guy, so it was nice to celebrate with him."
