“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. “It’s always nice to look fast against a good opponent,” he said. “I thought we did a real good job in the second period to tilt the rink a little bit. “I like us to play fast; I like us to play in attack mode.” Luke Glendening put Detroit on the board six minutes in when he backhanded a rebound of Drew Miller ‘s shot past Corey Crawford , who finished with 32 saves. Kane scored Chicago’s lone goal during a power play later in the first. Brendan Smith put the game away with an empty-net goal. The Blackhawks’ goal came less than a minute after Howard made three point-blank saves to deny Kane. source: http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=400564094

Blackhawks Rally For Four Goals in 3rd Period | Valley News

The main event will come in Philadelphia where the Flyers host the Columbus Blue Jackets at 7:00 p.m. ET. That might not seem like a big deal with Columbus struggling, but it marks the return of Scott Hartnell to Philly. As you may remember, Hartnell was traded to Columbus in the offseason in a deal that sent R.J. Umberger to the Flyers. While things aren’t going so hot for Umberger, Hartnell is third on the Blue Jackets in points behind Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno . Those three players are the only ones in double figures for the Blue Jackets so far this season. Most players that return to Philadelphia may not get a hero’s welcome upon returning but expect Hartnell to get just that when he’s introduced at Wells Fargo Center. Elsewhere, the Chicago Blackhawks visit the Detroit Red Wings at 7:30 p.m. for one of their two meetings this season. Both Detroit and Chicago come in with 19 points and the Blackhawks have won two in a row. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/11/14/7218137/2014-nhl-schedule-penguins-maple-leafs-hartnell-flyers-blue-jackets

Stars-Blackhawks Preview – Yahoo Sports

Kari Lehtonen followed his first shutout of the season Thursday by allowing two goals on 22 shots. The 20 saves marked a season-low for the 11-year veteran. “We have to be mentally prepared to play these games at home,” captain Jamie Benn told the Stars’ official website after the team lost its sixth straight in Dallas. “We have no excuses. We have to be better.” Lehtonen will likely get the start Sunday against Chicago, a team he has failed to beat in his last three attempts. 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. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/stars-blackhawks-preview-020417215–nhl.html
