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. 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. source: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/11/28/kanes-fifth-goal-in-seven-games-helps-blackhawks-win/

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

“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. He is expected to join the team in time for Saturday night’s game at San Jose. source: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/nhl_coverage/2014/11/kanes_5th_goal_in_7_games_helps_blackhawks_win

Kane’s 5th goal in 7 games helps Blackhawks win | Boston Herald

In a matchup of teams that both won two of the last five Stanley Cup titles, Daniel Carcillo added a goal, and Brandon Saad scored into an empty net with 1:49 remaining. Corey Crawford made 19 saves for the Blackhawks, who went 5-1 on their road trip. Jordan Nolan scored, and Jonathan Quick stopped 21 shots for Los Angeles. It was the first meeting between the teams since the Western Conference finals, won in seven games by the eventual Cup champion Kings. Trailing 2-0, the Kings got on the board at 5:53 of the second period when defenseman Jake Muzzin’s slap shot from the left point hit the shaft of Nolan’s stick and fluttered between Crawford’s pads. It was the first goal in 14 games this season for Nolan, who would have been a healthy scratch if not for Marian Gaborik’s upper-body injury. Chicago regained its two-goal margin at 8:14 of the second on a rush in which four players touched the puck in the Kings end. Richards converted Michal Rozsival’s pass at the left of the net for his sixth goal and third in two games. Richards failed to score a goal for the New York Rangers during last season’s Stanley Cup finals. FOX SPORTS DAILY SUBSCRIBE Carcillo opened the scoring at 1:52 of the first, batting in his own rebound after the Kings won a faceoff in their zone and turned over the puck. Just 28 seconds after serving Crawford’s tripping penalty, Kris Versteeg took the puck away from Quick and Matt Greene behind the net and found Richards at the left of the crease for a one-timer that beat Quick with 2:01 left in the first. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/brad-richards-scores-twice-leads-blackhawks-past-kings-113014

“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. “I don’t know how he was handling it when it was bouncing, but he made a play and got the puck to the net.” Until then it appeared Pickard might steal a win for Colorado. source: http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20141127/SPORTS2004/141129507/-1/sports12
