Nhl Gets It Right With No Hearing For Seidenberg On Jonathan Toews Hit | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

Is he supposed to get weak because of that situation? Or he just plays to his strength. I wasnt happy. I looked at it, and it could be arguable, but from my end of it I think its what it is. Our guys need to finish their checks and sure, youve got to be careful, but Im sure he knew that [Seidenberg] was coming. Thats code for Toews turned his back to the play, which is a bit much. But his body positioning to play the puck helped turn a shoulder hit into one from behind. This isnt to blame Toews, but rather its to explain how things went badly. Look, the easy thing to do here for the League would be to suspend Dennis Seidenberg. Toews is a star player. Hes currently filming a multi-week cable series to promote the NHLs signature regular-season game on Jan. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-gets-it-right-with-no-hearing-for-seidenberg-on-jonathan-toews-hit-163034029.html

(AP) The Chicago Blackhawks were trying to extend the longest winning streak in the NHL this season. The New York Islanders were trying to keep their worst skid from getting any longer. On a raucous night at Nassau Coliseum, both sides had good reason to believe they would be successful. After Patrick Kane gave the Blackhawks the lead in the third period, the slumping Islanders found their game and the net twice in 51 seconds to rally for a 3-2 victory on Saturday. “We weren’t happy with the last three games, that’s no secret,” Islanders captain John Tavares said. “We’ve got a good team and we know how to respond, and we know we have to get better.” The Blackhawks provided a great test for the Islanders (20-10), one of the NHL’s surprise teams this season. When Kyle Okposo and Lubomir Visnovsky struck in quick succession, Chicago’s winning streak was over at eight, and New York’s losing run was snapped at three. source: http://www.westport-news.com/sports/article/Isles-strike-late-snap-Blackhawks-winning-streak-5955761.php
