“Anytime you can go up against the league’s best and get a win, you get to keep that for a while,” Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. “Real powerful team, and they’re elite in some of the things that they do and because of that, that’s a confidence booster for your team.” Perreault signed a $9 million, three-year contract with Winnipeg last summer. But the center had no goals and three assists in his first 19 games with his new team. “I had a little bit of a rough start to the season, but as of late it’s been going OK with (Mark Scheifele) and ( Michael Frolik ), two good players,” Perreault said. “Right now it’s clicking for our line so, I’ll just go with it.” Winnipeg (18-10-7), one of the NHL’s biggest surprises, won for the third time in four games, bouncing back from a 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. The Jets led the Flyers 3-1 after two periods, but were unable to close it out. It was the Blackhawks’ worst loss of the season; they have only three losses by more than one goal. Chicago (23-10-2) had won 14 of 17 overall. “All year long, I think we’ve been in every hockey game except for tonight,” coach Joel Quenneville said.

NHL’s new “Moneyball” world making a star of Sharks’ Matt Nieto – ContraCostaTimes.com

The Leafs (19-11-3) had a six-game win streak of their own, but have dropped their last two contests, including getting lit up 7-4 by the Philadelphia Flyers at home Saturday night.

Perreault scores 2, Jets ease past Blackhawks 5-1

ITS A RUTAGABA GOD DAMN MOTHER RUTABAGA TONIGHT. IM GOING TO GO RUTABAGA MENTAL IN THIS RUTABAGA GAME TONIGHT. Its an incredibly intense game, and again the writers have set up and followed through: We see Andrew Shaws mutt act result in an elbow to his head, and then we get to see his reaction to the concussion protocol in juxtaposition with the Toews in Episode 1 just like we get to see how the Blackhawk react to adversity vs. how the Capitals did 10 minutes ago. Now its Blackhawks Holiday Party time, and Shaws wearing this: View gallery . The Hawks have a family skate, and we meet Patrick Kanes girlfriend ever so briefly. Someone is dressed as a Gingerbread Man, and thats unexplained. Dan Carcillo meets a teammates newborn baby and says she looks like me, huh? Which is perhaps the most Dan Carcillo thing thats even Dan Carcillod. Both John McDonagh and Rocky Wirtz stress the importance of family, and its the first time I realized theyre going to cover a death in that family in this episode. We visit with Scott Darling in Rockford after his demotion. Its sad, knowing his journey to the NHL, but again, its minor league demotion of a backup goalie. The Capitals are still in Columbus, and Trotz clearly didnt get the FIGHTING BAD!!!! memo because he puts over Lattas fight as something that galvanizes the team and makes the Capitals hard to play against. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/epix-road-to-nhl-winter-classic-ep–2–death-in-the-family–review-172910345.html

Is it ownership nudging the GM and saying it’s time to do this? I don’t know what the reason is, but it’s noteworthy that teams I consider old-school were at the forefront of hires.” General manager Doug Wilson says the Sharks have been true believers for the last five or six years. “It’s a part in the process that I think is of value — it might not be first or the second, but it’s certainly part and it enhances our decision-making process,” Wilson said. “Having as much information as possible when you are making decisions, to me is a smart approach.” Those decisions involve everything from drafting players to making trades to offering contract extensions. The data also can help on coaching decisions, such as determing which player should take a critical defensive zone faceoff. Now, back to those definitions. Corsi — the stat named after goalie coach Jim Corsi — provides the foundation of hockey analytics and tracks all shot attempts, not just those on net. During his time on staff with the Buffalo Sabres and now the St. Louis Blues, Corsi also charted the number of blocked shots and those that go high or wide, information available for years, but rarely compiled. That total, advocates say, provides a better idea which team and which players spend the most time in the offensive zone. Fenwick, another building block of analytics, excludes blocked shots from the Corsi data. source: http://www.contracostatimes.com/breaking-news/ci_27206378/nhls-new-moneyball-world-making-star-sharks-matt?source=rss

Dallas center Tyler Seguin is first with 25 goals, while Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek tops the points list with 44. Sabres coach Ted Nolan said Girgensons has nothing to be ashamed of. “I wouldn’t be embarrassed at all,” Nolan said. “The whole nation’s cheering for him, which is great to see. So he should feel a lot of pride.” Nolan knows plenty about Girgensons and Latvia. He spent the previous four years coaching Latvia’s national team, which included Girgensons. FOX SPORTS DAILY SUBSCRIBE “He’s come a tremendous long way in a very short period of time,” Nolan said. In an email, Latvian Ice Hockey Federation media manager Maris Gorbunovs wrote the support Latvians have shown Girgensons has been spontaneous, and a reflection of their passion for hockey and a native son. “Canada and USA has many NHL players but Latvia at the moment has only one,” Gorbunovs wrote. “It is not an initiative of some separate group or segment. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/buffalo-sabres-chicago-blackhawks-all-star-vote-lead-zemgus-girgensons-jonathan-toews-patrick-kane-122314
