Central Division: Blackhawks take flight in race against time – Sports – The Buffalo News

Anybody’s hockey game,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “Very comparable to what happened here last year. We got a lot of chances, got a lot of sniffs around the net and came out on the wrong side. Today it was nice to come out ahead.” Pickard, making his first start after winning two games in relief of Reto Berra, kept the Avalanche in the game with a career-high 42 saves. He left for an extra skater with 2:15 remaining, but Colorado couldn’t tie it. Ryan O’Reilly and Max Talbot scored for the Avalanche, who had won two consecutive games. “I should have had a lot more,” O’Reilly said. “The goal was definitely nice, but I still need to keep working harder and do a lot more things better.” Colorado tied it 2-all on O’Reilly’s third goal of the season at 3:36 of the third. Chicago stepped up the pressure but Pickard kept it a tie game until Bickell’s go-ahead goal at 14:43 on a pass from Kane. “Duncan (Keith) threw kind of a half-decent pass to Kane and he picked it up,” Bickell said. source: http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20141127/SPORTS2004/141129507/-1/sports12

Shaw made it 2-0 at 13:30 of the first, redirecting the puck past Andersen’s left leg from the low slot after Duncan Keith set him up from the left circle. By then, Chicago had an 11-1 shot advantage, and Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau called a timeout. Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) November 29, 2014 The Blackhawks didn’t get a shot on net the rest of the period, and Anaheim got on the board with Lindholm’s goal 3:11 before intermission. He batted in a rebound of Patrick Maroon’s 50-foot slap shot off Crawford’s mask, just seconds after Ryan Kesler received a solid open-ice hit from Niklas Hjalmarsson that knocked him to the ice. But Kane restored the Blackhawks’ two-goal margin at 10:36 of the second with a one-timer from the low slot after Kris Versteeg made a between-the-legs pass to him from behind the net. Kane has scored a goal in five of his last seven games, including two game-winners. Kane scored his 10th of the season into en empty net with 59 seconds left. Chicago was 0 for 5 on the power play, ending its streak of six straight games with a power-play goal. The Ducks have yielded five goals in 47 short-handed situations over their last 15 games. The Ducks, strapped for healthy defensemen, announced during the first period that they had acquired 16-year veteran Eric Brewer from the Tampa Bay Lightning for a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. “Its a special feeling; one thats hard to describe.” — @JBlacker91 on his @NHL debut. source: http://www.foxsports.com/west/story/kane-s-5th-goal-in-7-games-lifts-blackhawks-over-ducks-112814

Blackhawks Rout Ducks, 4-1 « CBS Los Angeles

Minus: Not many. They just need some success in the playoffs, where theyve won only one series since 2002. You wonder if Brian Elliott is the man to do that in goal or if hot prospect Jake Allen will eventually get the call. Final Score: The point totals from their last three seasons are 109, 103 (lockout-adjusted) and 111. Thats an elite team. It just has to translate at crunch time. Theyll get 100 points again. Then well see. Minnesota Wild Plus: Theres a strong cadre of young players (led by Jonas Brodin and Charlie Coyle) and a terrific collection of veterans (Ryan Suter, Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, Jason Pominville) now joined by the long-awaited return home of Thomas Vanek. The Wild have one of the better groups of wingers in the NHL and should produce plenty of offense. source: http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/nhl-preview/central-division-blackhawks-take-flight-in-race-against-time-20141004

An offense led by guys like Kane, Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews was going to start finding the back of the net more regularly, and on Saturday, that’s precisely what happened. The team only got 30 shots, but a 23.3 shooting percentage certainly swayed the results. Chicago doesn’t one of the best records in the league yet, but it’s climbing the standings, and few teams have played better of late. Not as if you needed a reminder, but the Blackhawks are indeed for real this season. All the NHL Scores Coyotes 4, Sharks 3 (SO) Three things we learned 1. Isles turn it around. A day after blowing a lead to Pittsburgh on the road, the Islanders rebounded against the Penguins to get a 4-1 win at Nassau Coliseum. There’s little doubt about which team in the Metropolitan Division is the biggest threat to Pittsburgh at this point, not after the way New York played the Pens tough on back-to-back nights while narrowly falling short of a two-game sweep. Only Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay have better goal differentials than the Isles in the East right now. 2. Turns out the Sabres aren’t a completely hopeless bunch. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/11/23/7270077/nhl-scores-2014-blackhawks-oilers-islanders-penguins

Patrick Kane’s 5th goal in 7 games lifts Chicago Blackhawks over Anaheim Ducks | FOX Sports

Richards gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead at the 7:58 mark, beating Andersen to the glove side with a 35-foot wrist shot at the end of a 2-on-1 rush. We talked about it before the game, that the forwards were going to have to help the D today, Boudreau said. Chicago was on a mission, and thats as good as theyve played against us in a long time. They took it to us from the drop of the puck, and thats when you need your experience to come through. Shaw made it 2-0 at 13:30 of the first, redirecting the puck past Andersens left leg from the low slot after Duncan Keith set him up from the left circle. By then, Chicago had an 11-1 shot advantage, and Boudreau burned his only timeout. The Blackhawks didnt get a shot on net the rest of the period, and Anaheim got on the board with Lindholms goal 3:11 before intermission. He batted in a rebound of Patrick Maroons 50-foot slap shot off Crawfords mask, just seconds after Kesler received a solid open-ice hit from Niklas Hjalmarsson that knocked him backward and onto the ice. We obviously werent able to sustain it after that, Boudreau said. They obviously said between periods that theyre not going to allow it. They came out flying and put us on our heels right off the bat, and I dont think that helped. Kane restored the Blackhawks two-goal margin at 10:36 of the second with a one-timer from the low slot after Kris Versteeg made a between-the-legs pass to him from behind the net. Kane has scored a goal in five of his last seven games, including two game-winners. source: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/11/28/blackhawks-rout-ducks-4-1/
