Niklas Hjalmarsson

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

He is scheduled to hit 17 straight Friday night against the Washington Capitals . This is what he wanted, this is what he asked for and this is what he got, said coach Pete DeBoer recently. True. Schneider shared the crease with Roberto Luongo in Vancouver, then Martin Brodeur in New Jersey. He has never played more than 45 games in an NHL season. But isnt this too much of a good thing? Hes been pulled four times. He has a .904 save percentage. Its mostly a mental challenge for Schneider, who has had to channel Taylor Swift. You learn you have to shake them off, he said. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/three-periods–stralman-s-complete-story–lehtera-looks-like-a-veteran–nhl-notes-220032552-nhl.html
