Let’s not bury the lede you came for, dear reader. So long as the NHL plays this summer, the 2019–2020 Chicago Blackhawks are a playoff team (sort of), just like the Brain Trust fucking said. Chicago will get its first taste of playoff hockey (sort of) since Nashville smacked it out of their
Well look at that, there’s a Hawks playoff matchup to discuss (kinda). Oh yeah, and plenty of sociopolitical subtext of mass death. But like Cronkite before us, we are the most trusted men in America. Give a listen.
While this country has in no way earned the right to begin discussing the resumption of team professional sports in the way that South Korea has with baseball, or Germany has with Bundesliga soccer given the ghastly disparity in how the pandemic has been handled in the those places versus the United States, the NHL […]
The Rockford IceHogs last took the ice March 8, when they dropped an overtime game to the Chicago Wolves. The piglets had 13 games remaining in the 2019-20 season before the AHL suspended operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

First, the good. McDonough was here for 13 years. He ushered in an era where Blackhawks fans could […]

Since we’re going to reminiscing on HotMic later on (Promo Code CLOWNSHOES), you might as well get yourself into a bit of a lather with some pregame reading. With that, we’re proud to present to you Sam’s issue of the program from that evening. 5-29 vs. Philadelphia (Game 1)
