San Jose center Joe Thornton was shaken up after Andrew Shaw hit him on his nose with his stick in the second period. But Thornton got his revenge after Shaw was sent off for high sticking, making a nice pass through the crease to set up Pavelski’s seventh goal of the season at 4:51.

NHL: No suspension for “sucker punch” thrown at Sharks defenseman Justin Braun – ContraCostaTimes.com

Jonathan Toews added an empty-netter with 1:57 left. The captain also had an assist on van Riemsdyk’s first career NHL goal. Antti Niemi finished with 32 stops for San Jose. Chicago’s 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 Seabrook’s 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. The fast start also came with coach Joel Quenneville trying a couple of new defensive pairings. The 23-year-old van Riemsdyk played with two-time Norris Trophy winner Duncan Keith, and Seabrook, who struggled in Friday night’s 3-2 loss to Washington, was alongside Rundblad. San Jose bounced back quickly after Hjalmarsson’s goal. Pavelski had a nice redirection on Justin Braun’s slap shot, trimming Chicago’s lead to 3-1 at 15:32, and the Sharks outplayed the Blackhawks for much of the second period. source: http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory/blackhawks-big-1st-period-beat-sharks-26797679

Chicago prepared to move on without Sharp : Sports

Hopefully, hes all right, teammate Patrick Kane said. Hes a big part of our lineup and a big part of our team. Hopefully, its not too bad. With 13 forwards on the active roster, including Daniel Carcillo who is sidelined with a right knee injury, the Hawks likely will have to recall a player from Rockford of the AHL to replace Sharp. Top candidates include veteran Peter Regin and the Hawks No. 1 prospect, Teuvo Teravainen. For now, Sharps teammates are looking ahead to likely playing without one of their top talents, beginning Friday night against the Washington Capitals at the United Center. Sharp has three goals and six assists in 13 games this season. Its never easy, but weve been through it before, captain Jonathan Toews said. Its unfortunate for Sharpie. Hes been playing well. Hes always a big part of our offense. source: http://herald-review.com/sports/hockey/f621b459-ff4d-5733-9d30-c60f11228ff8.html

San Jose Sharks vs. Chicago Blackhawks – Recap – November 09, 2014 – ESPN

The league’s department of player safety said Monday that Roussel must forfeit $5,376 — the maximum allowed under terms of the collective bargaining agreement — for hitting Braun in the face while he was restrained by linesmen with 1:09 left in the third period of Saturday night’s 5-3 victory over Dallas. Roussel was given a 10-minute misconduct penalty at the time. The scrum had developed after the Dallas player knocked San Jose goalie Alex Stalock to the ice as he tried to clear the puck out of the defensive zone. On Sunday, Braun said he was not concerned about any supplemental discipline that might be coming Roussel’s way. “You don’t want that to happen in the game, but whatever they decide to do, they decide to do,” Braun said before San Jose’s 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. “We just have to go about our business.” Sharks Coach Todd McLellan did seem more troubled by the incident immediately after the Dallas game. “You know what disappoints me is when a guy is vulnerable and being held and he gets punched,” he said. “That’s the disappointing thing. I don’t think anybody in our league, the 750 players, the coaches, want to see that.
