Blackhawks vs. Red Wings final score: Jonathan Toews scores OT game-winner, Chicago wins 2-1 – Yahoo Sports

(Please Note: This is not a deleted scene from “Boat Trip.”) When we last left Cuba Gooding, Jr., he was lit like a Christmas tree at the NHL Awards, hitting on Andrew Ferences wife and making a reverse Oreo joke and telling Mark Messier to get his hands off of Cubas posterior. Twice. On Tuesday, the Oscar-winning star of Snow Dogs and rambling train wreck pulled into United Center in Chicago to participate in the intermission Shoot The Puck competition during a Chicago Blackhawks exhibition game. He shot. He scored. He stripped. And he didnt even need a Michael Jackson wind machine for the open shirt. Cubas performance comes at time when stripping and the Chicago Blackhawks Shoot The Puck arent exactly hand-in-glove. The team banned use of the song The Stripper this season after an Internet movement called for the team to stop playing whenever a woman fan took part in the intermission event. We can only assume this was a cunning attempt by Gooding, Jr. to offer a subversive commentary on gender politics and their place in arena entertainment. Or he was sauced like a Lou Malnatis pie. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/cuba-gooding–jr–goes-topless-in-chicago-after-intermission-goal–video-023703978.html

He regularly allowed goals that appeared to be stoppable. While he made many spectacular, eye-opening saves that left his teammates, coaches and fans with their mouths agape, he would also pull away from medium- and long-range shots or leave vulnerable rebounds that opponents cashed in with little trouble. The Blackhawks noticed Crawford’s issues, and they brought in a new goaltending coach. Stephane Waite had been Chicago’s goaltending coach through the 2013 campaign, but he left after the championship season to take a similar position with the Canadiens. The Blackhawks hired Steve Weeks as their goaltending coach last year, but head coach Joel Quenneville did not bring him back . Instead, the team hired former Hawks goaltender Jimmy Waite to serve as the goaltending coach and as Crawford’s new mentor. Waite hopes to have the same kind of rapport with Crawford that his brother enjoyed with the goaltender and that his performance improves enough to get the Blackhawks back to the Stanley Cup Final. Im very excited to come back to the Chicago Blackhawks, the team that drafted me in 1987, said Waite in a statement. I look forward to working with Corey (Crawford) and Antti (Raanta), and to help contribute to the success of this organization. The Blackhawks can almost certainly live with a similar regular-season performance from Crawford this year. However, it’s vital that he show more consistency in the playoffs. Crawford had a 2.53 GAA and a .912 save percentage in the postseason, but even more than the numbers, he would lose his consistency and concentration at the wrong times. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2210512-what-corey-crawford-has-to-do-to-get-to-the-level-of-the-nhls-elite-goalkeepers

Mattias Ekholm Season Preview: Steady as he Goes – Yahoo Sports

— Satchel *** We’re only a few weeks away from the beginning of the 2014-15 NHL season, but the dust has only recently cleared from the leadership change here. I hope you guys have enjoyed the stuff we’ve rolled out so far, but with so much more action to cover in the near future, Second City Hockey could use some extra help. So here at SCH we’re putting out the call to any and all Blackhawks writers who might be interested in contributing to the site for the upcoming season. Whether you’re interested in features, news stories, covering games, social media or something else awesome, we’re interested in seeing what you have to offer. What’s in it for you? To be clear, this isn’t a paid gig, unfortunately. While SCH is constantly expanding and the support of SB Nation allows us to do some very cool things, there will be no financial compensation for your work. However, I will say that this is a legitimate opportunity to reach new audiences and writers from across SB Nation have eventually worked into much larger roles. I got my start as a writer at Beyond the Box Score, SBN’s sabermetrics blog, for example. So if you’re an aspiring writer looking for more eyes or simply someone who wants to get in on the conversation, this is a great way to begin. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/help-wanted-second-city-hockey-175800069.html

Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek couldn’t locate the puck in time, and soon enough we were hearing “Chelsea Dagger” over the loudspeakers. We’ll hopefully have much more to break down from this game and others in the coming days, but for now, let’s just enjoy whatever there is to enjoy from this. Certainly beats losing. SCH 3 Stars Update: It’s since been announced that the game-winning goal was awarded to Toews on a deflection, so my three stars don’t really make sense minutes after posting. It’s preseason so who really cares, let’s just focus on what matters here: not being pissed off about losing. Scored the game-winner and had a key role in setting up Kane’s game-tying goal. He remains one of the best two-way defensemen in the game. 2. Patrick Kane In a low-scoring affair without many highlight plays, Kane was his usually spectacular self. Not a difficult choice in this one. 3. Luke Glendening Scored the only goal of the game for Detroit. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-vs-red-wings-final-031934564.html

The young Swede is going to find himself in the NHL for good this time, and he earned it. Ekholm faced slightly tougher competition than Victor Bartley, and took less sheltered minutes than Ryan Ellis . Hedid pretty well on the ice given both of those caveats. Given that his CF% waspretty much break even, Ekholm should be a lock for the third pair, getting the nod over Bartley, especially whenever Ellis comes back. In training camp, he’s been skating with Seth Jones here and there, perhaps to try and see if the two are a fit and give Ekholm a shot at the second pair. It shouldn’t be the first place he plays, but given that he showed in his first full year he can be a steady presence on the back end, there’s no reason to think he can’t fill in if Anton Volchenkov gets hurt. Best Case Scenario Evolves from “steady” to “rock solid” throughout the course of the year, getting some time on the second pairing and chipping in with a couple of goals. Worst Case Scenario Suffers some kind of injury, or goes back to being the seventh defenseman. Bold Prediction Loses his cool and gets into his first NHL fight, winning the bout according to Hockey Fights.
