It’s their fifth consecutive loss, and their ninth loss in 11 games. Not good times for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Here we are, at the conclusion of the NHL All-Star weekend, sitting through yet another break in the action for the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired left-winger Anthony Duclair from Arizona along with defenseman Adam Clendening in exchange for Richard Panik and Laurent Dauphin. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville kind of announced it before their game Wednesday night versus Minnesota.

There’s no way to sugarcoat it. As we embark upon a new year, the Chicago Blackhawks are struggling. They headed into the Christmas break in a rut and have now come out of the break much the same. The Hawks are in the midst of a six-game road trip, and it hasn’t been pretty. They fell

Let’s face it, we’re all a little tired of the Chicago Blackhawks. Given how often they’re on national television, how many of them were named to the National Hockey League’s Top 100 (despite questionable qualifications) and, of course, the league’s insistence on sending them to every single outdoor game ever, the NHL seems to view
