Maybe Cory Schneider doesn’t need a day off after all. Schneider has started every game this season for the Devils, 17 straight, and while there have been nights where it looked like he could use a night off, he was strong against the Capitals on Friday with a 30-save shutout. The Devils play again on Saturday against Colorado and there’s no reason to think coach Peter DeBoer is going to alter his plan now, especially after such a brilliant performance. 2. Ryan Johansen is making everyone else look like a sucker. No, not because of his new contract, but because he was able to skip out on all of training camp and still be the Blue Jackets’ best player. He assisted on all four Blue Jackets goals and leads the team in points with 20. With how hurt most of Columbus’ roster has been so far this season, perhaps his absence in camp helped him miss out on the day when the voodoo curse was cast. 3. Let’s not sleep on the Islanders. You might dismiss the Isles’ shootout win against the Panthers, but do so at your own peril. The win was their fifth straight and they have a shot at six in a row Saturday against Tampa Bay. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/11/15/7224013/2014-nhl-scores-blue-jackets-snap-losing-streak-red-wings-beat-blackhawks

Lehtonen’s 2.68 goals-against average ranks near the bottom of the NHL for goaltenders with 10 or more starts. Chicago has won nine of 10 against Dallas, including a 3-2 shootout victory on Oct. 9 despite being outshot 34-26. Corey Crawford, who has been one of the league’s top goalies with a 1.87 GAA, made 32 saves in the opener and is 7-1-0 with a 1.84 GAA in his last eight versus Dallas. Tyler Seguin is one of the NHL leaders with 12 goals, although in 13 career matchups with the Blackhawks, including the postseason, he has one goal and owns a minus-4 rating. Outside of Seguin, the Stars’ offense has failed to live up to early season expectations. With 2.71 goals per game, Dallas ranks just above the league median and far below the explosive unit that was touted at season’s beginning. Benn has failed to score in his last 10 games and has gone six straight against Chicago with a goal. “I got no excuses,” said Benn, who has attempted 39 shots during his current drought. “Half of it’s hoping it, half of it’s wanting it. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/stars-blackhawks-preview-020417215–nhl.html

Stars-Blackhawks Preview – Yahoo Sports

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. 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. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/11/09/blackhawks-top-sharks-5-2/
