Is Devan Dubnyk the answer? – Yahoo Sports

(AP) Patrick Kane scored two goals and Andrew Shaw and Brad Richards each had a goal and an assist, leading the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. Corey Crawford made 23 saves, helping the Blackhawks win for the fifth time in six games. Defenseman Hampus Lindholm scored for the two-time defending Pacific Division champions and Frederik Andersen stopped 34 shots in his first career appearance against Chicago. The Blackhawks were leading 3-1 when Anaheims Kyle Palmieri received a 5-minute boarding penalty and an automatic game misconduct with 9.4 seconds left in the second period. He took a run at Johnny Oduya from at least 40 feet away and sent him crashing against the boards between the benches as Oduya was carrying the puck up ice with his head down. Crawford making his 13th consecutive start, didnt have to face a shot during the first 7 1-2 minutes with his teammates dominating play at the other end. 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. 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 Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau called a 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 Ryan Kesler received a solid open-ice hit from Niklas Hjalmarsson that knocked him to the ice. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/11/28/kanes-fifth-goal-in-seven-games-helps-blackhawks-win/

He ranks eighth or better in wins (12), goals-against average (2.13) and save percentage (.926). Halak is the real deal. New York had to kill off a two-man power play at the end of the game when they only held a one-goal advantage. They entered the game with the worst penalty kill in the NHL. Nice to see the all-around contributions from the secondary players: Nikolay Kulemin, Cal Clutterbuck and Casey Cizikas (shorthanded empty netter) all scored goals. Together, they have a combined 11 goals. Damien Brunner scored his second. The Devils are 9-11-4, and goal scoring remains an issue. They just dont have enough finishers. PENGUINS 3, HURRICANES 2 Christian Ehrhoff has always been a pretty good offensive defenseman. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/dose-ducks-sick-couture-071200347–nhl.html

Kane scores twice to lead Blackhawks past Ducks | FOX Sports

”We obviously weren’t able to sustain it after that,” Boudreau said. ”They obviously said between periods that they’re not going to allow it. They came out flying and put us on our heels right off the bat, and I don’t 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. ”Versteeg’s been real good. He was like the player we envisioned him to be this year,” coach Joel Quenneville said. ”He’s dangerous. When he has that puck he can make some real slippery plays and he’s got real good patience and play recognition.” 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. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/patrick-kane-leads-blackhawks-past-ducks-112814
