Mike Ribeiro tallied his second goal in as many games with 4:46 remaining, but the Predators couldn’t find the equalizer despite outshooting the Hurricanes 15-6 in the final period. “There weren’t a lot of Grade-A opportunities for us. They were pretty quick to defense and shutting things down. We can be better, but we couldn’t catch them,” Laviolette said. Nashville got a tying goal late in the second period Nov. 13 in St. Louis but the Blues’ Paul Stastny scored the lone one in the third in his team’s 4-3 victory. The four goals match the most given up this season by Pekka Rinne, 16-4-1 with a 1.83 goals-against average. James Neal had the tiebreaking goal in the final period and an assist in the Predators’ 2-1 victory at the Scottrade Center on Nov. 8, but he doesn’t have a point in his last seven contests. Neal has four goals and three assists in his last seven games against St. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blues-predators-preview-073521831–nhl.html

Chicago Blackhawks Make Statement with Convincing Win over Los Angeles Kings | Bleacher Report

That’s the formula that will get them to the top of the league standings and could put them in position to make yet another legitimate run at the Stanley Cup. Forward Kris Versteeg had eight points on the trip, while center Brad Richards added five points. They killed off 15-of-17 penalties during the trip and scored six power-play goals in 26 opportunities. Corey Crawford was on top of his game in goal. He stopped 143 of the 154 shots he faced, for a .929 save percentage. The Blackhawks came out of the gate against the Kings with a purpose, and they took the lead early in the first period on a goal from an unexpected source. After Richards won a faceoff in his own zone, the Blackhawks carried the play up the ice, and left wing Daniel Carcillo found the puck on his stick at the bottom of the faceoff circle. He blasted it at Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, and while he got a piece of the shot, he couldn’t stop Carcillo from following up and getting his stick on the rebound in mid-air and slugging it into the net. Officials looked at the replay to determine if Carcillo’s stick was above the crossbar, it was ruled a good goal and the Blackhawks had a 1-0 advantage at the one-minute, 52-second mark. Championship teams like the Kings can easily overcome a 1-0 lead and have done so many times. However, elite teams like the Blackhawks know how to apply the pressure when they get the advantage and make it difficult on even the best opponents. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2284209-chicago-blackhawks-make-statement-with-convincing-win-over-los-angeles-kings

Blues-Predators Preview – Yahoo Sports

Jean Arthur Beliveau was born Aug. 31, 1931, in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, and grew up in nearby Victoriaville as the oldest of eight siblings. There, like many players of his generation, he learned to play of hockey on a backyard rink. My childhood was in no ways remarkable, Beliveau wrote in his 1994 memoir, Jean Beliveau: My Life in Hockey. It was a typical French-Canadian Catholic upbringing, one hinged on family values, strict religious observance, hard-work, conservatism, and self-discipline. In his late teens, Beliveau played junior hockey for the Quebec City Citadelles, where his play drew the attention of the Canadiens general manager, Frank Selke. He has a flair for giving you his hockey as a master showman, Selke said of Beliveau in a 1956 Sports Illustrated article. He is a perfect coachs hockey player because hes moving and planning all the time, thinking out the play required for each situation. Selke doggedly pursued Beliveau, finally signing him to a contract in 1950 that assured once he turned pro, he would play for the Canadiens. Beliveau delayed his entrance into the NHL for two years after agreeing to the deal with Selke. The hockey player cited his loyalty to Quebec, and he was already earning twice the average NHL salary. The Canadiens finally added Beliveau to their roster, paying him a then-unprecedented $100,000 over five years. The same day he signed his first contract with the Canadiens, Beliveau also became a spokesman for Molson, Canadas largest brewery. source: http://www.vnews.com/sports/prosports/14651852-95/jean-beliveau-hockeys-class-act
