Tribune staff reporterOne of the few bright spots for the Blackhawks this season has been the play of their young defensemen. But the group, with the possible exception of Dustin Byfuglien, had a collective meltdown in a 5-2 loss Saturday night to the Columbus Blue Jackets....
Tribune staff reporterIn the span of 24 hours, things have gotten very interesting for the Blackhawks. It would have been easy to dismiss Friday night's victory at Calgary as the Hawks catching a team on a letdown. But after following it up with a 4-3 victory Saturday night...
Tribune staff reporterThey have been skated nearly to exhaustion, and they have been thrown off the ice. They have been made to watch their own horror show, and they have been berated by one of their own. None of it seems to have worked. Now, after another dismal...
Tribune staff reporterPavel Vorobiev isn't going to threaten Sidney Crosby or Alexander Ovechkin for rookie of the year honors. With nine goals and 20 points, Vorobiev was on pace for 24 goals and 55 points this seasonnot bad for the offensively challenged Blackhawks. But...

Tribune staff reporterThe first sign that Sunday was going to be a tough day for Blackhawks goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin came 44 seconds into the game. Phoenix winger Oleg Saprykin lofted a 53-foot snap shot that went in and out of Khabibulin's glove. No damage was done on...
