Thursday’s NHL Capsules | News Tribune

So I don’t want to change too much. … We feel it’s just a matter of time.” The Blackhawks pulled out a 2-1 win over Ottawa on Sunday thanks in large part to Scott Darling, who made 32 saves in his NHL debut. The rookie also stopped 24 shots against the Ducks, but Corey Crawford could be back in net Thursday after missing five games with an upper-body injury. Crawford has gone 2-0-0 with a 1.92 goals-against average against a Senators team that’s dropped nine of 12 in the series. Ottawa (5-2-1) returns home following Tuesday’s 5-2 victory at Columbus, its first win in three games. Clarke MacArthur had two goals and an assist while Erik Karlsson added one of each. Robin Lehner made 36 saves, improving to 3-0-1 with a 2.18 GAA. “I thought the players took charge of it and did a real good job,” coach Paul MacLean said. “Our leadership group stepped up tonight on the road to make sure we went home with some points.” The Senators are allowing 36.2 shots per game, the NHL’s second-worst mark. This could be a special night for Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa, who needs two points to reach 1,000 for his career. He could achieve the milestone against the franchise that drafted him in 1997 and in the city where he spent his first seven seasons. source:

Chicago goalie stars in his debut – Times Union

They were feeling each other out, and that process lasted well into the third period. The only goal of the game came from a breakdown on special teams. The Blackhawks were on a power play as a result of a high-sticking penalty by Sami Vatanen midway through the third period, and they had a number of chances throughout the power play, although none of them were of the 10-bell variety. However, the Blackhawks smelled a goal when the puck bounced out to Brent Seabrook at the right point, but as the hard-shooting defenseman went to glove the bouncing puck, it skipped away from him. As he tried to recover and control the disc, Seabrook blew a tire. That was all Devante Smith-Pelly needed as he accelerated toward the blue line, corralled the puck and went in alone on rookie goalie Scott Darling. Smith-Pelly is not one of the faster skaters in the NHL , but he knows how to take advantage of scoring opportunities when he gets them. He made a quick forehand-backhand move and slid the puck between Darling’s pads for a shorthanded goal. Darling, who is playing because Corey Crawford has an upper-body injury, thought he should have done a better job against Smith-Pelly. #Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling: “It’s my job as a goalie to try to make the big save. Couldn’t do it tonight. That was the difference.” Chris Kuc (@ChrisKuc) October 29, 2014 One goal is not supposed to beat the Blackhawks because the talent level on this team is simply too high. The Blackhawks throw out an array of superstars who can dazzle opponents as well as the Blackhawks fans on an every-night basis. source:

Kings 5, Blue Jackets 2: Jeff Carter scored during a two-man advantage in Los Angeles’ three-goal second period, and the Kings completed a sweep of a six-game homestand.

NHL roundup: Flyers lose again in Tampa – Chambersburg Public Opinion

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ray Emery (29) prepares to dive on a loose puck as Flyers’ Nick Schultz (55) and Tampa Bay Lightning center Alex Killorn

“It shows you’ve been consistently productive in your career, and he does it, not just production-wise but he does it by playing on both sides of the puck which makes that 1,000 number pretty impressive.” Hossa’s goal was one of four in a third-period outburst between the teams that entered the frame tied 2-2. “When we played them close and played them tight it was a much better game for us,” Senators coach Paul MacLean said. “When we played them loose, and I guess gave them respect is the proper word, they made us pay for it. “For our group to play the way we did and to get a point out of it, I think it’s a great way to continue momentum. We had a lot of great efforts, and we can feel pretty good about it.” Ryan gave the Senators a 3-2 lead 30 seconds into the third when he grabbed a loose puck in front of the Blackhawks net and surprised Darling with a quick shot. Toews scored his second of the game at 7:31, and Hossa gave Chicago the lead six minutes later on a shot Anderson admitted he misplayed. The Senators pressured Chicago until Zibanejad scored his first goal — and recorded his first point — of the season when he beat Darling through the legs from the slot at 17:52. “They were able to pick me up on that fourth one and tie it up to get us to overtime,” Anderson said. “That was huge with Mika getting on the scoreboard for us and picking up for my mistake but that’s what it’s all about, picking up your teammates when something goes wrong. “Our guys did a great job.” MacArthur scored the only goal of the second period, making it 2-2 at 2:51. The Senators took a 1-0 lead just 2:48 into the game. After taking a pass from second-year defenseman Cody Ceci , Stone passed off to rookie Curtis Lazar and headed to the front of the net where he was able to tip Lazar’s shot through Darling’s legs. source:

>> The arena’s name seems to change every time the Flyers are in Tampa, but the results are the same. Steven Stamkos scored a pair of goals as the Flyers lost their seventh straight decision in Tampa Bay’s home rink since 2011, dropping a 4-3 decision to the Lightning on Thursday night at what is now called Amalie Arena. The defeat ended the Flyers’ three-game winning streak, and they will try to rebound Saturday night against the Panthers in Sunrise, Florida. With the Flyers trailing, 3-1, Jake Voracek scored on a rebound of Brandon Manning’s shot, cutting Tampa’s lead to 3-2 with 13 minutes, 22 seconds to go. But Jason Garrison scored a power-play goal with 3:12 remaining. The goal was scored after a too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty on the Flyers. After the Flyers pulled goalie Ray Emery for an extra skater, Michael Raffl cut it to 4-3 with 53.5 seconds left. A little over a minute before Voracek’s tally, Stamkos’ second goal of the night and eighth in the first 11 games had given the Lightning a 3-1 cushion. Ben Bishop robbed Voracek from the right circle in the opening minute of the third period, denying the Flyers of their best opportunity during that power play. About 4 1/2 minutes later, Stamkos scored on a one-timer from the left circle, converting a slick feed from Valtteri Filppula to briefly give the Lightning a 3-1 lead. source:
