Chicago Blackhawks trade Jeremy Morin to Columbus Blue Jackets for Tim Erixon – ESPN Chicago

Helping to fill the temporary void left by injured starter Corey Crawford, Darling has allowed five goals on 91 shots to go 3-0-0 since being recalled Dec. 2. “He’s been excellent,” Quenneville said. “We like him; he looks big in the net, finds pucks, takes up a lot of space.” New York’s Jaroslav Halak allowed 14 goals during a club-record 11-game winning streak but has since yielded 11 in two starts – both against St. Louis, his former team. Halak, who has been dealing with an upper-body injury, also was shaken up during Thursday’s 6-3 loss to the Blues and his status is uncertain. 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.

Just when it seemed both teams might be shut down, the Blackhawks went in front on their second shot of the second but found themselves back in a tie seconds later. Carcillo started it with a shot from the slot that Halak blocked, but the puck popped into the air and landed behind the goalie with 5:35 left. It was Carcillo’s fourth goal. Before that could be announced to the crowd, which had a fair share of Blackhawks fans scattered around it, a Chicago blunder got the Islanders on the board. On the faceoff following the goal, defenseman Duncan Keith got the puck in his end, but lost it to Clutterbuck, who came in alone and scored his fourth. “This was a wakeup call for sure,” Kane said of the Blackhawks, who host Calgary on Sunday. “We allowed too many chances. source: http://www.westport-news.com/sports/article/Isles-strike-late-snap-Blackhawks-winning-streak-5955761.php
