NHL scores 2014: Oilers stun Rangers, Blackhawks thump Sharks –


Saad opened the scoring with 2:48 left in the period on Chicago’s 15th shot to complete a 2-on-1 break with Marian Hossa. After taking Hossa’s cross-ice pass, Saad fired a low one-timer that struck the inside of Holtby’s left pad and slid into the net. Ovechkin was penalized for an illegal hit to the head of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson with 16 seconds left in the first, and Keith scored on the power play 56 seconds into the second to make it 2-0. He swooped into the right circle and fired in a rebound through traffic. The Capitals then connected three times late in the period to take the lead. The last two goals came 42 seconds apart in the final minute. Burakovsky cut it to 2-1 with 4:57 left to complete a 2-on-1 with Troy Brouwer. After faking a pass, he closed in and fired a perfect shot over Crawford’s left shoulder and just under the crossbar. The Blackhawks were skating around in their zone following a failed clearing attempt, and Johansson tied it at 2 with 47 seconds remaining in the period on a low shot from right circle that ticked in off the stick of Chicago defeneman Brent Seabrook. Ward’s goalmouth deflection of Matt Niskanen’s shot from the point with 5 seconds left in the frame put Washington ahead. source:

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 Riemsdyks first career NHL goal. Antti Niemi finished with 32 stops for San Jose. Chicagos scoring spree in the first started when Toews sent a faceoff back to van Riemsdyk, who blasted a slap shot by a screened Niemi 8 minutes into the game. Seabrook extended the lead to 2-0 at 14:10 when he scored on a one-timer off a pass from Brad Richards. With the sellout crowd of 21,489 still celebrating Seabrooks third goal, Hjalmarsson used a nicely placed wrist shot to record his first goal of the season at 14:34. It was the first time three defensemen scored in a single period for Chicago since Frantisek Kucera, Igor Kravchuk and Steve Smith scored in the third period of an 8-1 victory over Edmonton on Nov. 27, 1992. source:

Sharks can’t overcome big first period by Blackhawks – – San Mateo Daily Journal

All the NHL scores Lightning 4, Red Wings 3 (F-SO) Maple Leafs 5, Senators 3 Blackhawks 5, Sharks 2 Canucks 2 Ducks 1 (F-SO) 3 Things We Learned 1. Overtime hockey is great and if games aren’t going to be decided in regulation we should find a way to have more overtime played . The overtimes played between Detroit and Tampa Bay as well as Vancouver and Anaheim were played at breakneck pace with a ton of chances. More please! 2. Give it up to the Maple Leafs for winning a game without any help from Phil Kessel. The Leafs had five different goal scorers including recent call-up Josh Leivo . Peter Holland , and David Clarkson also scored to help the Leafs beat the Senators in their re-scheduled game. While the Leafs looked strong, Sens goalie Robin Lehner managed to make a handful of outstanding saves to keep it just a two-goal game. There are silver linings everywhere if you look hard enough. 3. The Canucks won the Ryan Kesler-Nick Bonino trade! Well, they did for one night at least. source:

His play during even strength has been particularly impressive: he’s averaging more than four points per 60 minutes of even strength action. Ben Bishop hasn’t been outstanding in net, but he’s been serviceable (2.44 GAA, .910 Sv%). If he improves as the season wears on, Tampa will be tough to beat in a best-of-seven series. 4. St. Louis Blues (9-4-1) | St. Louis Game Time Coming off a seven-game win streak, the Blues appear to have found their stride. Vladimir Tarasenko has been a joy to watch. Jaden Schwartz has been hugely productive. Barret Jackman has looked surprisingly good. source:
