Brad Richards Taking Advantage Of Chance For Redemption | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

But not at first line money. For third line dough (because lets face it, thats what Richards is making) his numbers look much more manageable. Hes on pace for 55 points and 21 goals, and now hes playing with Patrick Kane and Versteeg, which mean his possible totals could spike higher than that pace. The last two games of Chicagos circus trip where the Hawks went 5-1-0, Richards had three goals and four points. And on the second game of a back-to-back against Los Angeles, coach Joel Quenneville had enough faith in Richards to play him 19:04 against the powerful Kings. He has scored some big goals on this trip, theyve had some nice plays against each other, its almost like you know theyre going to get some chances and they usually end up being high quality. Hes had a hot stick with them going in as well, Quenneville said. Theres a lot of ability Richards is going to play with those two guys. Be ready. Is this a long-term solution for Chicago as the second-line center? Of course not. Richards will probably have a decent year and then cash in next year with some other team or at least thats what makes the most sense. source:

Quenneville was unsure if Crawford might miss an extended amount of time. “He’s being evaluated right now, so we’ll know more [Wednesday,]” Quenneville said after the team’s practice. Crawford is 12-5-1 with a 1.87 goals-against average and .929 save percentage this season. He ranks fourth in the league in goals-against average and fifth in save percentage. He has started the last 14 games for the Blackhawks. Antti Raanta will start for the Blackhawks on Wednesday. He is 1-2-0 with a 2.03 goals-against average and .933 save percentage this season.
