“We did a lot of good things out there. Had a real good attack, shot the puck well, lot of opportunities,” he said. “But we got to clean up some of the mistakes we make. They’re unacceptable.” Corey Crawford shined again for the Blackhawks on Saturday against Nashville, making 19 saves, but they had trouble scoring despite a 37-20 shot advantage. Jonathan Toews ‘ short-handed goal finished off a 2-1 overtime victory. The Blackhawks have unloaded 87 shots in their last two games but have just three goals to show for it. “I don’t think it’s about the initial shot. It’s more about the second effort, having traffic at the net,” Toews said. “We (need) some ugly goals, get some offense going.” Antti Raanta , though, will get his first start of the season after the Blackhawks announced Tuesday that Crawford will miss this game due to an upper-body injury. The Finn went 1-0-1 versus the Flyers as a rookie last season, getting the win in a 7-2 rout at the United Center on Dec. 11. Chicago has five wins in its last six home games against the Flyers, including three in the 2010 Stanley Cup finals, but it’s 3-15-1 with one tie in the last 20 overall regular-season meetings. source:

Voynov suspended on domestic violence suspicion – Westport News

Jensen’s top 100 fantasy forward rankings Fantasy Spin updates | Follow @NHLFantasy SIGN UP FOR YAHOO FANTASY He also has a plus-3 rating, has three power-play points and has scored on 17.6 percent of his 17 shots on goal. The 24-year-old has seen his ownership grow to 64 percent in Yahoo standard leagues but he’s being ignored in too many. Someone who isn’t ignoring Brodie is Flames general manager Brad Treliving, who referred to his defenseman as being a “quiet little secret that only [the Flames] knew about,” after signing him to a five-year contract, $23.25 million contract extension on Oct. 20. “I think TJ is getting an understanding about how good he can be,” Treliving told the Flames website. “He can be a real good top defenseman in this League. The more that he understands that and trust his abilities and his game … you just see that confidence and him taking his game to a different level.” Treliving said the Flames didn’t make the decision to extend Brodie based on his quick start, but rather after considering all variables of his growth, including how he has improved on both sides of the puck. Fantasy owners can make a leap of faith based on a smaller snapshot and that is why you should grab Brodie while you still can. He is averaging a Flames-best 25:14 of ice time per game and three times has gone played more than 27 minutes in a game. source:–nhl.html

“He’s not familiar with our legal system, so he had a lot of questions,” Renetzky said. Redondo Beach police responded to a neighbor’s report of a woman screaming and crying in Voynov’s neighborhood on Sunday night, but couldn’t find anyone, Hoffman said. About 90 minutes later, Voynov was arrested after a nurse at the Torrance hospital called police to report the alleged victim was being treated for injuries that “alarmed” the emergency-room staff. Police didn’t release the alleged victim’s name or her relationship to Voynov, citing her confidentiality rights. A couple must be married, in a relationship, cohabitating or have a child together for an alleged crime to fall under the statute cited by the arresting officers. Hoffman said additional charges could be filed against Voynov because a child was in the house shared by the defenseman and the alleged victim, although Voynov isn’t the child’s father. The NHL’s collective bargaining agreement allows it to suspend players during a criminal investigation “where the failure to suspend the player during this period would create a substantial risk of material harm to the legitimate interests and/or reputation of the league.” The NFL has received widespread criticism for its handling of recent domestic violence charges against several players. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has said he is confident in his league’s policies, noting in a recent interview in Los Angeles that the league provides education and frequent counseling to its players. Voynov will be paid during the investigation. Voynov is the second prominent Russian NHL player to be accused of domestic violence in a year. source:

Fantasy Top 60 ‘D’: Flames’ Brodie heating up – Yahoo Sports

To me, a paying customer has a right to voice his or her displeasure over the performance of a team at any point during the game. To them, thats a lack of fan support, met with a we dont come to your job and BOO YOU attitude in postgame interviews. To me, throwing your jersey on the ice can be one of the ultimate expressions of fan angst at best; or at worst, a really nasty prank from a Habs fan in Toronto. To them well, they fight for that logo and bleed for that logo and take pride in that logo and yadda yadda yadda. Or as James Reimer said, after another Leafs jersey hit the ice: To see a jersey on the ice like that and to see someone throw it, its too bad because obviously I get the message youre trying to send, but its something we have a great respect for and we fight hard for that logo, he said. Its too bad when somebody does that. But they bought the jersey so they can do what they want with it. Jersey tossing is the new chanting for your coach to be fired. Its something that gets on TV or immediately hits social media. It seems exclusive to Canada at the moment, mainly because the typical Canadian fan has more sweaters in their closet than Jos A. Bank has suits. As the jerseys continue to rain down in Toronto and Edmonton, perhaps we can bridge the respect gap between disgruntled players and fans with a quick etiquette lesson: DONT TOSS YOUR JERSEY ON THE ICE IF its the second game of the season and your team has made significant changes to its front office since last season, starting at the top. source:–an-etiquette-guide-to-throwing-your-nhl-jersey-in-protest-143803121.html
