Nhl Scores: Flyers Still Have Penguins’ Number; Another Hat Trick For Corey Perry – Sbnation.com

, , Leave a comment


The Penguins still seem incomplete. It’s impossible to get a read on a team five games into the season, and you can’t put too much stock into one game, but for all of the nice moves the Penguins made over the summer they’re still in a position where Rob Scuderi and Craig Adams are taking semi-regular shifts for them and Evgeni Malkin is skating on a line with Pascal Dupuis and Brandon Sutter . 2. Even when the Oilers are good, they’re still kind of bad. Let’s say this up front: The Oilers probably played a little better over their first four games than the results would indicate. They were also probably outplayed by the Capitals on Wednesday during their 3-2 win. But a win is a win and the Oilers are in no position to be apologizing for how they do it, but I can’t think of anything more fitting for this team than their game-winning goal on Wednesday which ended up being a beautiful play that was preceded by a comedy of errors . 3. Frederick Andersen is off to a great start. John Gibson gets a lot of the headlines in Anaheim for being the goalie of the future and one of the better up-and-coming netminders in the league, but they have another pretty good one in Andersen. After his performance on Wednesday he has now stopped 154 of the 162 shots he has faced this season. That is a .950 save percentage. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/10/23/7044427/nhl-scores-penguins-flyers-corey-perry-hat-trick

Blackhawks Game Notes For Thursday @ Nashville | WGN-TV


“Or you’re killing a penalty and you think you’re going to be in good shape and out comes top players. So he does things that continually put pressure on you as a team, which I find very challenging. That’s really smart, he knows how to plays his players. He knows the stoppages in the game, he knows the timeouts in the game, he knows how to catch you on rotations. When he’s the road team, he still can get good rotations. I find it’s a lot of fun, it’s a lot of fun to coach against him. We’ve become good friends over the years. We’ve had some awful interesting playoff battles throughout the years, but he’s just sharp in the way he brings out his players.” *** ODDS & ENDS The Blackhawks lead the NHL with 39.2 shots per game. The Blues have not been outshot this season (33.8 shots per game, 4th in the NHL).

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Nashville Predators – Recap – October 23, 2014 – ESPN

With Chicago trailing 3-1, Shaw tipped a rebound past goalie Pekka Rinne at 12:36 of the third. That gave Chicago fans making the trip down for the game a reason to get loud again. The Blackhawks pulled goalie Antti Raanta for the extra attacker. Rinne gloved the puck out of the air with 1:18 left with Shaw trying to score. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville took his timeout, but the Blackhawks couldn’t beat Rinne despite outshooting Nashville 32-27. The Blackhawks left goalie Corey Crawford at home for this two-game road swing because of an upper body injury, and Raanta got his second straight start. The Predators outshot Chicago early with a flurry of action in front of Raanta. But Smith flipped a wrister over Rinne’s outstretched leg off a rebound at 12:21 for a 1-0 lead for the Blackhawks. Nashville failed to take advantage of a power play when Marcus Kruger went to the box for high-sticking Colin Wilson , but defenseman Seth Jones found Neal with a nice cross-ice pass. Neal beat Raanta stick-side, tying it 1-1 in the final minute of the period. Chicago got its first man advantage at 13:07 of the second, and the Blackhawks took turns shooting at Rinne. source: http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=400564601
