(AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh) The Associated Press Defensemen Trevor van Riemsdyk, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson scored in the first period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the San Jose Sharks 5-2 on Sunday night. Bryan Bickell added a big goal in the third as the Blackhawks stopped a three-game home losing streak. Corey Crawford made 32 saves, including a nice stop on Patrick Marleau with Chicago nursing a one-goal lead with 7:30 left. Joe Pavelski had two goals for San Jose, which was coming off a 5-3 victory at Dallas on Saturday night. The Sharks’ seven-game road trip continues on Tuesday night at Florida. The Sharks trailed 3-2 after two periods and had a chance to tie the game when David Rundblad was sent off for holding at 9:06 of the third. But the Blackhawks killed off the penalty, and Bickell put it away with his second goal of the season with 3:42 remaining. Jonathan Toews added an empty-netter with 1:57 left. The captain also had an assist on van Riemsdyk’s first career NHL goal. source:

1 goalie Ondrej Pavelec beat the Rangers 1-0 in New York on Saturday in a shootout. The 24-year-old Hutchinson entered having played only 40 minutes this season. 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. Both teams played for the third time in four nights. Winnipeg went 3-0-1 on its four-game trip. The Blackhawks entered leading the NHL with an average of 38.9 shots per game, but were only 21st at 2.46 goals. They had a hard time against Hutchinson and the scrappy Jets. Chicago was unable to generate much traffic in front of the net or pounce on rebounds. The Jets got all the offense they needed early as they moved straight into the Chicago zone off the opening faceoff. Frolik, a former Blackhawks player, skated across the crease, closed in from the left side and lifted the puck past Crawford’s glove as the goalie sprawled trying to stop the shot. source:

“You can see where the confidence in tight games and playing the right way and doing the right things is a work in progress right now,” coach Joel Quenneville told the team’s official website. “I think (there was) probably a little hesitation on our part, knowing we’ve lost some tough games that we traditionally win.” Jonathan Toews scored an empty-netter and also had an assist, giving him five points in three games. The Chicago captain has six goals and five assists in eight games against the Lightning, while Patrick Kane has five goals and 10 assists in the same span. Consistent with Tampa Bay’s scoring and Chicago’s defending, the matchup also features one of the league’s top power plays (26.4 percent) against the Blackhawks’ top-ranked penalty kill (91.1). The Lightning’s kill has gone 8 for 15 in four games this month as the Blackhawks’ power play is 4 for 23 in seven games. Both teams have received solid goaltending from their No. 1s. Ben Bishop is 9-1-1 with a 2.44 goals-against average, while Corey Crawford is 5-3-1 with a 1.75 GAA. In three games against Chicago, though, Bishop is 2-1-0 with a 4.16 GAA. In three against Tampa Bay, Crawford is 0-1-2 with a 1.90 GAA. source:

He’s a very good defenceman, very good with his stick. He doesn’t really bite on anything, so I have to go wide on him, try to beat him there. I looked forward to the matchup when I played him last year, a great defenceman going against a 16-year-old. That made me better every game. This year when I go against other defencemen I know I can beat them because I was able to beat him.” 4. If it hadn’t been hockey, what sport do you think you could have excelled in? “I think tennis. I was a pretty good tennis player when I was young. One day my parents asked me, ‘you have to make a choice now, hockey or tennis?’ I picked hockey. I love scored goals and making plays. I still watch the French Open and Wimbledon when I get a chance.” 5. source:–daniel-sprong–charlottetown-islanders-161454228.html
