NHL gets it right with no hearing for Seidenberg on Jonathan Toews hit | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

The Bruins play host to the Chicago Blackhawks at TD Garden at 7 p.m. ET. The Blackhawks are rolling as they enter the game on a seven-game win streak. Chicago hasn’t exactly been feasting on lesser-thans during the streak either. Chicago has wins against Montreal, Nashville, St. Louis, Anaheim, and Los Angeles in that time, and now the team faces a Bruins squad coming off a 5-2 win against Arizona on Saturday. Even counting Saturday’s victory, however, Boston has lost five of the past seven games. The team is looking to get things right and may have David Krejci back against Chicago. With Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane , and Marian Hossa to wrangle as well as recently returned Patrick Sharp , at least the Bruins have Tuukka Rask . Elsewhere, the Columbus Blue Jackets take their four-game winning streak into Washington to face Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals at 7 p.m. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/12/11/7375175/2014-nhl-schedule-blackhawks-bruins-tv-schedule

Blackhawks-Islanders Preview – Yahoo Sports

Do you just see a hockey hit gone bad? Weve seen dozens of suspensions for boarding. Many involve an element of charging this doesnt. Nearly all involve the he should have never delivered the hit if he saw his numbers mantra that players are taught from the time theyre first able to grip a stick. The first time Seidenberg sees Toews numbers is when the Blackhawks captain is rolling on the ground. Again: Its a battle for a loose puck. Claude Julien came off as unfeeling in his postgame comments, but hes sorta correct: I certainly dont like seeing those kinds of things, but this is where its important to take care of ourselves. So, I view that five-on-three were going to close a gap quickly, and Dennis [Seidenberg] is a strong individual, said Julien. 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. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-gets-it-right-with-no-hearing-for-seidenberg-on-jonathan-toews-hit-163034029.html

The Islanders (19-10-0) allowed an average of 1.9 goals while winning 13 of 15, but have yielded 17 in following that stretch with three consecutive defeats. “It’s back to work Saturday as we try to work ourselves out of what we are in,” forward Brock Nelson told the Islanders’ official website. Defenseman Nick Leddy makes his first appearance against the Blackhawks, who traded him to New York prior to the season to clear salary cap space. A solid presence the past three seasons for Chicago, Leddy has been a strong two-way asset with 14 points for the Islanders but posted a minus-3 rating in the last two games. The Islanders, whose seven-game home winning streak ended with a 6-4 defeat to St. Louis last Saturday, have not dropped consecutive games at Nassau Coliseum this season. Chicago’s four-game winning streak against New York ended with a 3-2 overtime road loss Jan. 2. Kyle Okposo scored the winner and also had an assist to give him three of each in six games against the Blackhawks. He recorded a goal and his sixth assist in seven games Thursday. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-islanders-preview-183227584–nhl.html
