He did not return for the third period and did not speak following the 3-2 loss to Ottawa. We will let you know (Wednesday), Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock said following the game. Injuries are part of it. We will see how long he is out for. The injury appeared to impact Elliotts right leg and was the result of a blue-paint scrum that involved a majority of the players who were on the ice at the time. As he was falling to his back, Elliotts leg appeared to buckle after being slightly caught underneath his body. Senators Erik Condra also tumbled over Elliott as he was falling. There were guys falling everywhere, bodies everywhere so it was tough to see what actually happened, said defenseman Ian Cole. Hopefully hes not out long. The goaltender remained down for a lengthy period of time before testing out his leg with trainer Ray Barile. After several minutes and a long discussion with Barile, Elliott reluctantly limped down the tunnel to the Blues locker room. Jake Allen took over in goal. Its real tough, said defenseman Barret Jackman. He will get evaluated tomorrow and we will see how bad it is. source: http://www.kmov.com/sports/Elliott-exits-Tuesdays-game-with-a-lower-body-injury-283925501.html

The Associated Press Post a comment VANCOUVER, B.C. Jannik Hansen scored the first hat trick of his career Sunday as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1. Radim Vrbata had the other goal for the Canucks and Ryan Miller made 24 saves to get the victory as Vancouver (14-6-1) celebrated assistant captain Daniel Sedins 1,000th league game in style. Bo Horvat had his first three NHL assists, while Derek Dorsett added two assists. Corey Crawford finished with 26 stops for Chicago (12-8-1) in the loss. After giving Vancouver a 1-0 lead in the first period, Hansen snapped a 1-1 tie with his fourth goal in the last three games at 6:24 of the third. Dorsett chipped the puck down the boards into the Chicago zone before directing a shot toward the goal that Hansen deflected into the top corner for his eighth goal of the season. Before Hansens second goal, Nick Bonino had a great chance to give the Canucks the lead about five minutes into the third period. But his shot from the side of a wide-open net hit the far post and stayed out. Chicago had a power play with about eight minutes left in the third, but Vancouvers penalty kill was effective. source: http://seattletimes.com/html/hockey/2025088015_nhl24xml.html?syndication=rss

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://sports.yahoo.com/news/bickell-lifts-blackhawks-over-avalanche-3-2-044704890–nhl.html

The Blackhawks (14-8-1) have totaled 25 goals while winning five of six overall. “We’ve got one more game left (on the trip) and we’ll be able to go home for a few days and relax,” Patrick Kane, who had two goals, told the team’s official website. “Might as well finish on a strong note.” Kane has heated up with six goals and seven assists in his past seven games.

Jeff Carter had five goals and Tyler Toffoli added four to help Los Angeles beat Chicago in the conference finals. Toffoli snapped a four-game goal drought Wednesday, while Carter will try to do the same in this contest.
