Being down 2-0 quick like that changes the whole way the game is going to be played from there on out. We did generate a lot of shots on net. The second and third opportunities are where we needed to capitalize.” Chicago now heads out on the road, where it’s dropped three of four. “You worry about your next game and next shift as a player,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “That’s your objective to bring the focus, bring the motivation of doing the right things and that’s what it’s all about.” The Blackhawks haven’t visited the Twin Cities since eliminating the Wild with a 2-1 overtime victory in Game 6 of last year’s Western Conference semifinals. Chicago took this season’s first meeting 5-3 on Dec. 16 as Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Brent Seabrook each recorded a goal and two assists. The Blackhawks have taken three straight and 13 of 19 matchups, including playoffs. Kane has four goals and four assists during a five-game point streak in the series, giving him 21 points in his last 21 regular-season meetings. Minnesota (18-15-5) has managed 26 goals during a 2-4-4 slump. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-wild-preview-235401714–nhl.html

NHL: Roy leads Oilers past Blackhawks 5-2 – Daily Republican Register: Daily Republican Register

Scrivens kept his team in the lead with five minutes left in the second period as he made a huge stop on Andrew Shaw on the doorstep. The Oilers were able to clamp down on defense and limit the Blackhawks’ chances in the third until Yakupov was able to put the game away, coming in with Hall on a 2-on-0 opportunity and electing to shoot himself, beating Raanta on the backhand with three minutes remaining. It was Yakupov’s first goal in 15 games. Hall added an empty-netter shortly afterward. “The game winning-goal, the third one, if you let that kind of bad rebound right to a guy’s stick, you have to recover and make the save,” Raanta said. “You can’t let in that kind of goal. We lost the game almost because of me, so it is a bad feeling.” NOTES: Scrivens recorded 19 saves in the win. … It was the second of three games between the Oilers and Hawks this season. Chicago dominated the first contest with a 7-1 win in Edmonton in November. The Blackhawks entered having won five in a row over Edmonton, dating to the 2012-13 season. … source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-roy-leads-oilers-past-blackhawks/article_12edf216-989b-11e4-aeb4-4fb63e424778.html

They finished the first half 14-1-0 when leading after one period and 14-0-0 when leading after two, and those numbers improved against the Wild because of Corey Crawford. Crawford made 42 saves in easily his best of eight games since returning from a lower-body injury. Prior to the injury, he was 12-5-1 with a 1.87 goals-against average. Since, he’s 4-3-1 with a 2.98 GAA, so there’s still work to do, but his value was recognized against the Wild. “That was a goalie win,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “They were the better team tonight, for sure, and we dodged a bullet.” Crawford is 3-0-0 with a 1.59 GAA in his last four games against the Oilers. Chicago’s five straight wins in the series have come by a 26-10 total, including a 7-1 win in Edmonton on Nov. 22 to begin the season series. Kane has nine points in those wins and 23 on a 13-game point streak in the series. Edmonton (9-23-9) should be well rested after last playing in Tuesday’s 4-2 home loss to Detroit. Jordan Eberle scored twice and has four goals and an assist in four games. It lost the game on the penalty kill, where it was 3 for 6 and is 5 for 10 in the last two games. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-oilers-preview-151738248–nhl.html
