Blackhawks send Morin to Blue Jackets for Erixon – Washington Times

After Patrick Kane gave the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead 3:46 into the third with an end-to-end rush with a backhanded finish, Okposo tied it with a power-play goal off a rebound of John Tavares ‘ shot with 9:50 left. Visnovsky then skated across the Chicago zone and beat backup goalie Scott Darling to put New York in front at 11:01. Cal Clutterbuck also scored, and Jaroslav Halak made 23 saves to stop the Islanders’ three-game losing streak. New York allowed 17 goals during the skid. SHARKS 2, PREDATORS 0 SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Tomas Hertl scored in the first period, Antti Niemi earned his 29th career shutout and San Jose won for the seventh time in eight games. Joe Thornton added an empty-net goal as the Sharks put together one of their most complete performances of the season. They would have won more handily if not for strong play from Pekka Rinne , who made 32 saves for Nashville. Hertl managed to get one past Rinne in the opening minutes and Niemi made it stand up, making 29 saves after sitting out the past three games. Niemi was banged up after being hit by a shot in the morning skate Tuesday. The Predators failed in their bid to complete a sweep of a three-game road trip, having outscored Colorado and Arizona 8-1 in the first two games. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/nhl-capsules-121314

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. 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. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-gets-it-right-with-no-hearing-for-seidenberg-on-jonathan-toews-hit-163034029.html

Morin has no points in 15 NHL games this season. The winger was assigned to Rockford of the AHL for a conditioning assignment Tuesday because he wasn’t playing at all with the loaded Blackhawks. “It’s a good chance for Mo to play and for Timmy to join our organization,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said before Sunday night’s game against Calgary. The 23-year-old Erixon is “looking to get established in that continued rotation and show he can play at our level,” Quenneville continued. “We’ll get to find out a little bit more about him tonight in joining our team, and complement our team game as well.” Morin, 23, has eight goals and eight assists in 54 career regular-season games, all with Chicago. He also played in two postseason games in May. The Blue Jackets’ next game is Tuesday night in Detroit. Erixon had one goal and five assists in 19 games with Columbus this season.
