Nhl Schedule 2014: No Rest For The Weary With Several Back-to-backs On Sunday – Sbnation.com

, , Leave a comment


Seven of the 12 teams in action on Sunday played on Saturday night, meaning there should be plenty of sloppy hockey to go around as players skate on tired legs. The Montreal Canadiens visit the Detroit Red Wings at 7 p.m. ET on a high, coming off a dominant 6-3 win over Philadelphia at home. Montreal scored on each of the three power play opportunities they had in the win, and the Red Wings will have to find a way to slow them down on the man advantage if they want to defend home ice successfully. Elsewhere, the Chicago Blackhawks play host to a struggling Dallas Stars team at 7 p.m. ET. Dallas has lost eight of ten after losing to Minnesota at home on Saturday. The Stars need to dig out of their slump fast before they lose too much ground in the Central Division, but playing the Blackhawks in Chicago has not been kind to them over the past few years. The Pacific Division closes out the weekend with a late game in Edmonton between the Oilers and Arizona Coyotes at 9 p.m. ET. It was a blowout for Arizona the last time these two teams faced, as Mikkel Boedker registered his first hat trick in a 7-4 win on October 15. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/11/16/7228109/2014-nhl-schedule-canadiens-red-wings-stars-blackhawks-coyotes-oilers

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

Blackhawks Use Big 1st Period to Beat Sharks 5-2 – ABC News

“I still remember playing in (the 2013 West quarterfinals), when we went to Game 7 and lost in overtime, that’s still tough on us,” defenseman Brendan Smith told the Red Wings’ official website. “We want to beat them every time we play them so that gives us a little extra drive. “There’s a rivalry from that, but there’s always been one from the Original Six that’s always brewed. I feel it’s gotten stronger in the last few years.” Chicago (9-6-1) has beaten Detroit in eight of the last nine regular-season matchups and earned at least one point in 12 straight (9-0-3). The Blackhawks won the most recent meeting 4-1 behind goals from Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews on March 16. “There’s a lot of passion. There’s a lot of, if you want to call it, hatred,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “The rivalry is definitely in tact. You can feel it when you’re in the building. You can see it in warm-ups.” The Red Wings catch Chicago at an inopportune time, as the Blackhawks are coming off their first back-to-back wins since Oct. 18-21. source: http://stats.chicago.cbslocal.com/nhl/preview.asp?g=2014111405

Story With his contract up at season’s end, Detroit’s Mike Babcock is being watched by many of his NHL colleagues, including the Hawks’ Joel Quenneville. Story The Blackhawks were outshot 20-8 in the period. “I thought that was the best game we’ve played this season,” said Jimmy Howard , who stopped 25 shots for his seventh victory. “I think that’s one of the biggest rivals we miss playing. It’s always fun when you get to play them.” These teams meet only twice since Detroit moved to the Eastern Conference before last season, but the atmosphere felt the same as when they were in the same division. A smattering of vocal Blackhawks fans were in the stands but they had little to cheer after Detroit converted a pair of takeaways to take the lead for good. “We served up a second pizza,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said of the first two goals his team allowed. “The first goal was a tough play and the second goal was a tough play.” Patrick Kane had a giveaway to set up Franzen’s game winner. “It’s unforgivable to make a turnover that bad,” he said. “Pretty sloppy game. A lot of turnovers, a lot of giveaways.” Detroit hadn’t played since Sunday and seemed much fresher in the second period. That was fine with Red Wings coach Mike Babcock. source: http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=400564094
