View gallery Chicago Blackhawks goalie Antti Raanta (31), celebrates with teammate David Rundblad (5), of Sweden, ”They moved the puck around us quite a bit in the hockey game and we just didn’t have an answer for it,” Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. ”And then we when we did have some chances, I thought the goaltender made some big stops.” Although No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford was available, Raanta started for the third time in four games and recorded his third career shutout. Crawford faced the Blue Jackets on Saturday after missing eight games with a foot injury. ”Every single game (Raanta’s) been in the net he’s done what he could to enhance his positioning here,” Quenneville said. ”Our goaltending has been outstanding no matter who’s been in the net.” Rundblad put the Blackhawks in front with a screened shot from the left point with 4:30 left in the first period.

NHL Three Stars: Seguin leads Stars rally; OT heroes for Bruins, Flyers | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

RIP my friend. #veryfaast Viktor Stalberg (@VStalberg) December 21, 2014 Thoughts and prayers with the Reif family. Such a wonderful person to b around. Brian Campbell (@bcampbell_51) December 21, 2014 Rest in peace Clint. Everyone keep the Reif family in your thoughts. brandon pirri (@pirri91) December 21, 2014 Players know and certainly appreciate the hard work and effort of equipment managers who sharpen their skates and fix their helmets. Managers tend to become close with the people they serve, and it sounds like Reif was no different with the Blackhawks. While this thought is clearly not in the front of people’s minds right now, but with Chicago playing in the Jan. 1 Winter Classic and the NHL and the Blackhawks filming an all access series with EPIX to promote the event, one does have to make sure this situation will be handled the right way on screen. Again, just terrible news. Thoughts go to Reif’s family, his wife Kelly and their four children — daughtersFlorence, Aislynn, Colette and son, C.J. – – – – – – – Josh Cooper is an editor for Puck Daddy on Yahoo Sports.
