Sharp, Hossa lead Blackhawks to win over Senators

The Senators took a 1-0 lead just 2:48 into the game. After taking a pass from second-year defenseman Cody Ceci, Mark Stone passed off to rookie Curtis Lazar and headed to the front of the net where he was able to tip Lazar’s shot through Darling’s legs. The Senators held that lead until the Blackhawks scored twice in a span of just over four minutes in the second half of the period. Toews tied it when his wrist shot barely crossed the goal line behind Anderson with several bodies in front. The Blackhawks took their first lead at 15:36 when Versteeg slipped around defenseman Erik Karlsson in the circle and went around a sprawling Anderson before tucking the puck inside the far post. NOTES: Senators G Robin Lehner missed the game as he spent the evening with wife Donya and son Lennox, who was born earlier Thursday. The Senators also scratched Colin Greening, Erik Condra and Mark Borowiecki. … David Rundblad, Daniel Carcillo and Antti Raanta sat out for the Blackhawks.

He has scored two goals and four assists in his first 13 games in a Blackhawks uniform, and he has a minus-1 rating. He also has a plus-23.67 Corsi On rating (ninth on the team), according to the Behind The Net . Richards had not scored until the Blackhawks’ 11th game when they went to Toronto on Nov. 1, and he added his second goal in the 5-0 victory over Montreal on Nov. 5. Im not going to anoint myself [and say] that everything is flowing yet, Richards told Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times. Its still a work in progress, but its always nice. When you score and contribute and help the team and go home with a win, you always sleep better at night. Despite those two goals, there is not a lot of evidence to suggest the Richards’ signing is working out the way the Blackhawks had hoped. Richards has shifted between the Blackhawks’ second, third and fourth lines since the start of the season. Head coach Joel Quenneville has not criticized Richards publicly, but it was clear in training camp that he was going to be a noticeable step slower than Kane and Saad. That made it difficult for Quenneville to feel good about playing Richards between the two, and that opportunity has since been given to the quicker Andrew Shaw . However, that’s not an easy call because Shaw does not have the skill to match his quickness. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2258392-how-much-longer-can-the-chicago-blackhawks-afford-to-rely-on-brad-richards

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

You get that chance in the playoffs, and it’s always something you want to be a part of.” Buffalo’s futile start has been one for the record books. The Sabres scored 10 goals in their first 10 games, the fewest since the 1936-37 Chicago Blackhawks. And things haven’t gotten much better. They’ve lost each of their past two games by a score of 6-1. They’ve been shut out five times in 17 games and have scored just one goal five times. “Well, statistically speaking the last four games,” Vanek said, “we’re probably right at the bottom as well.” “We can’t expect to have an easy game because we’d be cheating ourselves,” Pominville said. “We’ve got to focus on bringing the best effort we can, and that’s no matter who you play. “They’ve made it tough on certain teams at certain times this season. They’ve got some guys that are from here that are going to want to play well, and guys that we know that were ex-teammates that are going to want to beat us. We’ll have to make sure we’re ready.” Last season, the Wild’s season seemed at a tipping point after six straight losses to close December. But it turned with a 4-1 win over Buffalo Jan. source: http://www.twincities.com/wild/ci_26925779/minnesota-wild-game-against-sabres-might-be-just?source=rss

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.
