— Center Zemgus Girgensons scored the deciding goal in the shootout to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. Big Ben fires six TD passes again as… Girgensons beat Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard with a quick wrist shot high to the blocker side. Center Tyler Ennis also scored in the shootout for Buffalo. After Detroit right winger Gustav Nyquist evened the shootout at 1-1, left winger Henrik Zetterberg came up short with his forehand attempt. Center Brian Flynn and right winger Chris Stewart scored in regulation for the Sabres while goalie Michal Neuvirth made 36 saves. Center Pavel Datsyuk and left winger Thomas Tatar scored in regulation for the Red Wings (6-3-2) and Howard made 19 saves in defeat. Hurricanes 3, Kings 2 RALEIGH, N.C. — Center Victor Rask’s first NHL goal set the tone and goalie Cam Ward helped back it up with another strong game as Carolina defeated slumping Los Angeles. Left winger Chris Terry and center Elias Lindholm also scored for Carolina. Center Mike Richards and defenseman Alec Martinez scored the Los Angeles goals, but the defending champions are winless in their last four games — all on the road. source: http://www.wesh.com/sports/nhl-game-roundup-sabres-edge-wings-in-shootout/29495282

Are the New England Patriots the team to beat in AFC?

Im going to cherish this moment. The Jets wrapped up a perfect weekend as they extended their point streak to five games (4-0-1) and recorded their second shutout in two nights. No. 1 goalie Ondrej Pavelec beat the Rangers 1-0 in New York on Saturday in a shootout. The back-to-back shutouts are the first for the Jets since October 2006 when they were the Atlanta Thrashers. It is the third time it has happened in franchise history. The 24-year-old Hutchinson entered having played only 40 minutes this season, but he backstopped the Jets in a tight-checking finale of a 3-0-1 road trip that moved them over .500. Weve really jelled together as a team on the road, Hutchinson said. I think it shows on the ice. Were really committed to team defense. Its unfortunate we havent scored a lot of goals, but were still able to get points, which is the main thing. Corey Crawford stopped 26 shots in his second start in two nights after he missed six games with an upper-body injury. The Blackhawks lost their second straight and are 2-5 in their last seven. Chicago was beaten 1-0 for the second consecutive home game as both teams played for the third time in four nights. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/11/03/hutchinson-jets-shut-out-blackhawks-1-0/

Hutchinson, Jets Shut Out Blackhawks 1-0 « CBS Chicago


Dating to last March 23, Chicago has been shut out four times in its last 20 games (third most of any NHL team during span). * Ottawa beat Columbus, 5-2, on the road on Tuesday night, snapping its two-game losing streak in the process. The Senators have allowed three or fewer goals in each of their last 13 games dating to last season the longest active streak of its kind in the NHL. * Chicago defeated Ottawa, 2-1, in these two clubs first meeting of the season last Sunday at United Center. The Blackhawks and Sens have played four games at Canadian Tire Centre since the lockout, and each team has won two of those contests. * The Blackhawks are averaging a league-high 38.0 SOG per game in 2014-15. Coincidentally, Chicago had 38 shots on goal in Tuesdays whitewash its most SOG in a shutout loss since losing, 3-0, to the Coyotes on February 11, 2012 (also had 38 SOG in that contest). * Robin Lehner stopped 36 of 38 shots on goal, and also chipped in his first career NHL point (assist) in Tuesdays victory, garnering first-star accolades for his performance. Despite allowing just two goals, Lehner lost his only career game vs. the Blackhawks on March 2, 2012. * Both the Blackhawks (9-2) and the Senators (11-4) have outscored their opponents by seven goals in the third period this season tied with the Ducks for the best third-period goal differential in the NHL. source: http://wgntv.com/2014/10/30/blackhawks-game-notes-for-thursday-ottawa/

It further burned a year of Monahan’s ELC, which means they’re going to have to cut him a bigger check a year earlier than they should have. They could probably have gotten 22 goals out of any number of veteran centers or wings (Monahan played the wing all year but is a natural pivot) if they sheltered him as much as they did this rookie, and it wouldn’t have cost them anything down the road. Part ways with the replacement guy after one year, who cares? Instead, Monahan who in my book has improved significantly for this year might be looking at $5 million in two summers if he continues on his upward trajectory toward his age-22 season and beyond. Maybe Calgary’s in a position to compete by then, and they have to pay Monahan, or another rookie, more than they otherwise might have had to. Another example, and one that’s a bit more germane to the situation: The Sabres seriously punting the Mikhail Grigorenko situation two years in a row. Grigorenko somehow made the Sabres as a rookie in the lockout-shortened 2013 season. He played 25 games, scored just five points, and was so ineffective that the Sabres decided they’d rather send him back to Quebec. So he goes back to the Q and scored 30-24-54 in 33, but only after burning a year of his deal because he got into more than nine NHL games. This from a team that was about to be the dregs of the league, and had to know that would have been the case. Last year, he makes the Sabres again, but only plays 18 games before once again being sent back to Quebec, where he goes 15-24-39 in 23. To what end, really? source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/why-waste-your-rookies—what-we-learned-161309475.html
