Wait, wait. Brandon Bollig was in an actual movie?  That's the takeaway from an otherwise hilariously awkward video from the Chicago Blackhawks for the holidays, released over the weekend. As every Hawks star takes their turn at reenacting classic films (Kaner plays Anakin Skywalker, Patrick Sharp is Batman, Jonathan Toews is Wolverine), Brandon Bollig actually reprised a real role.  It may come as a surprise to some (it did to us), but Bollig actually starred in 2002s "Defiance," a Western where he plays a 12-year-old who loses a father.

The Bulls' season is history and Chicago baseball isn't exactly lighting it up, so it's a safe bet that the city is ready to raise a glass for the Blackhawks. Generally when hockey fans pull up in front of the TV or at their local arena, their experience is accompanied with a beer. But with tickets so hard to come by, perhaps it's time to class it up and go with a cocktail. Besides, the way the contentious NHL playoffs have gone, fans might want to take refuge in a stiff drink.

Soldier Field in March may be just as brutal as a December football game. The Hawks on Friday will test the outdoor ice rink on the field before the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series matchup with Pittsburgh on Saturday. Playing in Chicago has turned some of the Blackhawks into football fans. "Being from Canada, I know we have the CFL," forward Bryan Bickell said. "It's tough to follow. I'm not a big fan of the CFL. Being in Chicago for as long as I have been, I'm a Bears fan definitely.

It's not just you. The Blackhawks are playing with an edge lately. Despite a two-game skid to end the regular season, the team's tenacious physical play helped them win four straight without Patrick Kane or Jonathan Toews. Sure, Brandon Bollig has been delivering big hits and sticking up for his teammates by dropping the gloves all season, but there's been grit across the board. "Yeah, we haven't had an issue with that all season; specifically Brandon [Bollig] does a great job of sticking up for [teammates]

You probably thought you'd seen everything a Blackhawks Bruins game had to offer when these teams met in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Uh, no. Not only did Sunday's rematch at the United Center end in a shootout - which, of course, is impossible in the playoffs - there were a number of strange occurrences this time around. Parts of the game were familiar, and just as nerve-wracking. After Marian Hossa put the Hawks up 1-0 in the first, Boston took a 2-1 lead until the Hawks eventually forced overtime.

Fans knew it was gonna be tough even before the gloves came off. But the Blackhawks capped a good week with a 4-2 win over Central Division leader St. Louis on Sunday at the United Center. Chicago now has won three straight for the first time since December. "I thought, three games in a row, I thought we played the exact same way. Played the right way," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "Worked hard, very effective, efficient. Everybody contributed and scored some ugly goals, but played the right way to get rewarded.

Good luck trying to explain the Blackhawks' ridiculous start to this year's abbreviated NHL season. Fortunately, you don't have to. Just know the Blackhawks are hotter than Kate Upton in a see-through bikini doing yoga, which is to say they're playing well enough to quicken the pulse of Chicagoans regardless of age or gender. After the lockout delayed the start of this season until late January, the Blackhawks have rattled off a run that is unprecedented here locally. In case you've been under a rock, the Blackhawks are undefeated in any game that doesn't involve a glorified skills...

What would you do with the Stanley Cup? It's a question every hockey player hopes to answer. The most coveted trophy in all sports is not only a breathtaking silver spectacle, but also a collective time capsule of champions. During the Blackhawks Convention this weekend at the Hilton Chicago, RedEye asked the Stanley Cup champs what they've enjoyed doing most with the cup, and for those who haven't had their day yet, what they're looking forward to doing with it.

Blackhawks fans may not despise St. Louis as much as they hate Vancouver or Detroit, but a rivalry certainly has been brewing the past few seasons. As of Wednesday, the Blues lead the Central Division with 101 points, with the Hawks in third place (92 points) entering Tuesday. If Chicago is going to claim its second straight division title, it's logical that they have to close the gap beginning in Wednesday night's matchup at the United Center. In addition to the bad blood that seems to be building, here's what fans can expect when these...

It's one of the most quoted lines from the classic 1977 movie "Slapshot. " After using a stick to demonstrate slashing and other punishable offenses on the reporter's body, goalie Denis Lemieux (Yvon Barrette) - in a heavy French accent - says: "You do that, you go to the box, you know? … And … you feel shame, you know? And then, you get free. " Ah, freedom. Every penalized player yearns for it the second the door inside hockey's "timeout" room slams shut. RedEye asked Blackhawks Bryan Bickell, Brandon Bollig and Andrew Shaw all about the "sin bin.
