feature

The Los Angeles Kings ride a six-game winning streak into Philadelphia at 7 p.m. ET, just their second road game of the season thus far. The Maple Leafs host the Buffalo Sabres in a game that’s being looked at as a must-win for Toronto, and with rumors of Randy Carlyle’s demise not far off if they lose at home to the lowely Sabres. Metropolitan Division rivals New Jersey and Pittsburgh battle while the Minnesota Wild are in Boston to take on the Bruins in a nationally televised affair in the Eastern Conference, both also at 7 p.m. ET. The Montreal Canadiens will attempt to shrug off Monday’s shutout loss to Edmonton, staying in Alberta to take on the Flames at 9 p.m. ET. The most entertaining game of the night might go to the Dallas Stars and St. Louis Blues, two division rivals facing off at American Airlines Center at 8:30 p.m. ET. Or maybe the title belongs to the Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks, who do battle at United Center beginning at that same time. Who knows; we’ll have to watch to find out. source: http://www.sbnation.com/2014/10/28/7086247/nhl-schedule-tuesday-games-online-streaming-tv-schedule

The slumping Blackhawks hit the road looking to continue their recent success against the Senators on Thursday night. Chicago (5-3-1) picked up nine points in its first five games before scoring six goals during a 1-3-0 stretch. The Blackhawks couldn’t get any of their 38 shots past Anaheim’s John Gibson in a 1-0 loss Tuesday. “There are too many skill players, too many offensive guys in this locker room to have it carry on, but it’s not going to get any easier – it’s got to come from this room,” forward Patrick Sharp said. “We have to understand how to score goals, you have to get to the net, score the ugly ones and then everything else will open up.” Sharp leads the team with eight points, but he’s come up empty in back-to-back games. Captain Jonathan Toews has one point in the last four. Chicago ranks in the bottom-third of the league with 2.3 goals per game after finishing second in each of the previous two seasons. While the Blackhawks haven’t been able to find the back of the net with much consistency, coach Joel Quenneville doesn’t appear too concerned. Chicago has outshot opponents 342-243 for the NHL’s second-largest differential. “We’re getting shots, we’re getting chances,” Quenneville said. “Production has been down, but we’re playing the right way. So I don’t want to change too much. source: http://stats.chicago.cbslocal.com/nhl/preview.asp?g=2014103014

Smith-Pellys third goal of the season capped a breakaway with 8:28 left in regulation and 2 seconds remaining on a penalty on Sami Vatanen. He beat rookie goaltender Scott Darling between the pads after grabbing the puck at the Ducks blue line when Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook fell. I tried to fake him out and kind of get him moving and Im not sure if he got a piece of it, but Im happy it scooted through, Smith-Pelly said. He had to fight off teammate Andrew Cogliano for the puck after Seabrook lost it. Then it was clear sailing, with Seabrook unable to get into the play. Ive got to do a better job of that, Seabrook said. It was just one of those plays. Anaheim used Smith-Pellys goal and Gibsons first shutout of the season to record its eighth win in nine games. It was the first regulation home loss for Chicago, which has dropped three of four overall. Gibsons biggest save came on Chicago captain Jonathan Toews in the deep slot 90 seconds into the third period. You just see him wide open and try to get something in front of it, Gibson said. The Ducks outhit the Blackhawks 37-16, helping Gibson to his second shutout in six NHL games. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/10/28/surging-ducks-beat-blackhawks-1-0/

Eagles , is also under pressure to re-establish himself after a disciplinary lapse. The 32-year-old Carter, who has 1,440 points in tests, was allowed a seven-month break from rugby after New Zealand’s test against England in London last November. He returned near the end of the Super Rugby season but broke his leg in the tournament final in August between his Christchurch-based Crusaders and the New South Wales Waratahs. Carter has played only half a game for his Canterbury province since returning from that injury, which continues to trouble him with nerve pain. At his best, Carter was among the best flyhalves international rugby has seen, but a long series of injuries has cast doubt over his ability to guide the All Blacks at the top level and he needs to prove himself to press his claims for World Cup selection. Cruden, who replaced Carter as New Zealand’s first-choice flyhalf, wasn’t selected for tests against South Africa, Argentina and Australia after being suspended for missing a team flight during the Rugby Championship. His selection Saturday places pressure on him to win back the respect and confidence of the All Blacks selectors, and to regain his starting place from Beauden Barrett . The match will also see the return Williams, who spent the last two years after New Zealand’s World Cup win playing for the Sydney Roosters in Australia’s National Rugby League competition. Williams quit the NRL to play rugby union in 2008, won an All Blacks call-up in 2010 and played at the 2011 World Cup. He left New Zealand rugby again in 2012 first for Japan, then for rugby league in Australia but has returned in an effort to reclaim a place at the 2015 World Cup. source: http://www.westport-news.com/sports/article/Carter-on-bench-when-New-Zealand-plays-US-5857287.php

Captain Richie McCaw , another long-term fixture of the All Blacks team, is being rested for the match, leaving Kieran Read to lead the squad. There are a series of other changes across the field since the All Blacks’ last-minute 29-28 win over Australia two weeks ago, including a return for Sonny Bill Williams . “This is going to be an exciting occasion for the team, playing the USA in front of a record crowd here in Chicago,” New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen said. “It’s another chance for those selected to pull on the jersey and play well. On this northern tour we want to give all players in the squad the opportunity to grow their game and we also want to develop our game as a team and it starts on Saturday.” Carter needs to prove his fitness Saturday to win further game time on tour and to restore his status as New Zealand’s premier playmaker. Aaron Cruden , who starts at No. 10 against the U.S. Eagles , is also under pressure to re-establish himself after a disciplinary lapse. The 32-year-old Carter, who has 1,440 points in tests, was allowed a seven-month break from rugby after New Zealand’s test against England in London last November.
