How Much Longer Can the Chicago Blackhawks Afford to Rely on Brad Richards? | Bleacher Report

While the Blackhawks have one of the most talented rosters in the NHL , and one of the top centers in the league in Jonathan Toews, they have not been getting the consistency or the results from the No. 2 center position that they have wanted to see. That was not just a problem in 2013-14. It’s a problem that goes back several seasons, and when a team falls short of going to the Stanley Cup Final because it gave up a goal in overtime of the seventh game in the Western Conference Final, it’s hard not to play the “what if” game. What if the Blackhawks had a solid No. 2 center who compared to Jeff Carter of the Los Angeles Kings ? Would that have been enough to get past the eventual champions? Would they have won their second Stanley Cup in a row and their third in five years? It’s fairly safe to assume that the Blackhawks would answer yes to those questions, which led to their signing of Richards in the offseason. And why not? Richards, 34, was a brilliant playerwho had won awards and been an All-Star earlier in his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning , the Dallas Stars and the New York Rangers . However, he has slowed down in recent years, both in terms of on-ice speed and production. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2258392-how-much-longer-can-the-chicago-blackhawks-afford-to-rely-on-brad-richards

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

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. 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. source: http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory/blackhawks-big-1st-period-beat-sharks-26797679


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 nights 3-2 loss to Washington, was alongside Rundblad. San Jose bounced back quickly after Hjalmarssons goal. Pavelski had a nice redirection on Justin Brauns slap shot, trimming Chicagos lead to 3-1 at 15:32, and the Sharks outplayed the Blackhawks for much of the second period. 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 Pavelskis seventh goal of the season at 4:51. The Sharks then had a chance to tie it at 3, but Crawford made a right pad save on a breakaway for Barclay Goodrow with 8 minutes left in the second. NOTES: F Daniel Carcillo (lower body) is skating on his own and could return during the Blackhawks six-game road trip from Nov. 20-29. He was injured in the third period of Chicagos 3-2 loss at St. Louis on Oct. source: http://www.smdailyjournal.com/articles/sports/2014-11-10/sharks-cant-overcome-big-first-period-by-blackhawks/1776425133077.html
