The Habs organization will collectively be playing with a heavy heart in the wake of legend Jean Beliveau’s passing. They’ll want to give their fans something to cheer about. It’s going to be tough to do against a Wild squad that has lost just three times at home this year. Pick: Canadiens 4, Wild 1 Edmonton Oilers at Winnipeg Jets , 9 p.m. ET The Oilers will try, try again to beat a Western Conference opponent for the first time this season. They’re 0-7-3 in their last 10 games and even when they’ve played well, they haven’t gotten results. The Jets, meanwhile, had some success on a recent road trip, so they should be confident.

Getting up 2-0 was huge. But I thought the third period was our best period, to be honest. We really took it to them, but we couldnt capitalize because their goaltender was awesome and kept them in the game. 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 Andersen stopped 34 shots in his first career appearance against Chicago. They were the better team today, Anaheim center Ryan Kesler said. I can sit here and make excuses, but we just werent good enough. We have a lot of NHL-caliber players in here. Freddie played a great game, and we let him down. 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. My view was that (Oduya) was falling and he was turning at the same time, Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. Palmi didnt change his direction, didnt hit him in the head just kept following through with the check. source:

Here are the Top 25 performing players between November 9 and December 2 (in the given categories). The report is courtesy of our pals over at : View gallery . Fantasy Hockey Geek Ovechkin owners may be frustrated with the numbers as of late, but the bottom line is that he’s still been providing value thanks to his shots and hits total. That’s exactly why he was the top player to draft back in September in this type of league – because even during his slumps, he’s providing value. Everyone’s still waiting for Tyler “not a first-line center” Bozak to stop being so first-line centery. The top goalie during the window given is Jaroslav Halak , who ranked 49th. Corey Crawford (62), Pekka Rinne (64), Kari Lehtonen (72) and Ben Bishop (97) also cracked the Top 100. Islanders youngster Ryan Strome has been sneak-good of late. He actually ranked 28th, just missing the list. But he has 10 points in his last 11 games and is shooting the puck a ton. source:–why-patrick-kane-is-a-stud–james-neal-a-dud-164421359.html
