Capitals-Blackhawks Preview – Yahoo Sports

“In a way (it’s) an opportunity for some other guys to get more ice time, and I think guys will try and step in and make up for that as much as they can. But as a team we have to be prepared to fill that void.” Peter Regin has been recalled from the AHL to replace Sharp, forcing Quenneville to again tinker with his line combinations. Toews fed Kane on his highlight-reel goal against Montreal in a rare opportunity to play together at even strength. They skated together again, along with Ben Smith, on the top line during Thursday’s practice. “They make some nice plays together, and I think they were probably excited once they got back together and it worked out,” defenseman Duncan Keith said of Toews and Kane. While the Blackhawks have had trouble putting pucks in the net, the Capitals (4-5-3) have had issues keeping them out of their own. They’ve allowed at least four goals each time during an 0-4-1 stretch, falling 4-3 in overtime to Calgary on Tuesday. “We’re in the process of building a team, and we’re going to go through some rough patches,” coach Barry Trotz said. “How we react during those rough patches will say a lot about us. (If) we stay with it we’ll get stronger and on the other end we’ll be a lot better for it.” Alex Ovechkin had two assists to give him 827 career points, breaking Peter Bondra’s team record. His turnover in overtime led the Flames’ winning goal, though. source:–nhl.html
