Tiger Woods loses tooth at skiing event 2hr Dallas (21-17-7) is now 10-8-2 on the road. Chicago (28-15-2), meanwhile, continued its recent struggles, suffering its fifth loss in the last eight games. Chicago goalie Corey Crawford was able to stop just 28 of Dallas’ 34 shots. Crawford suffered his second straight defeat and fourth in his last seven outings, dropping his personal season mark to 17-10-2. Dallas took over with three third-period goals after entering the period tied at 3. That’s where Dallas put things together, while Chicago fell apart. The tie lasted less than three minutes as Eakin scored his second goal of the night and ninth of the season on the power play at 2:58. Left wingers Tyler Seguin and Eric Cole, and centers Vernon Fiddler and Shawn Horcoff also scored for Dallas.

Teams that played the night before. Points that you’ve got to have. Divisional games. It shows you our division’s competitiveness.” Brandon Saad scored two goals for Chicago, which had a 41-34 advantage in shots on goal. Saad has five goals and an assist in his last four games. The Stars and Blackhawks were tied at 3 when Chicago defenseman Johnny Oduya was sent off for tripping Seguin at 1:22 of the third. Eakin then capped a nifty passing sequence for Dallas with a tap-in goal. “At that time of the game, it’s a big power play,” Ruff said. “It’s a big goal for your team and gives us a little bit of momentum and it makes them gamble a little bit more. I think when you saw that you saw the odd-numbered rushes and you saw even better opportunities on our part.” Erik Cole made it 5-3 when he finished off a 2-on-1 with Jason Spezza, and Shawn Horcoff added an empty-netter with a minute left. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-eakin-helps-dallas-stars-beat-chicago-blackhawks/article_a0a63dfe-a005-11e4-b224-cf19ba668c2c.html

Saad opened the scoring just 53 seconds in when he backhanded a rolling puck from the left circle, and the rising shot slipped past Hutchinson’s right elbow. The Jets came on as the period progressed and tested Crawford with some prime chances. Bogosian tied it at 1 midway through the first on a low screened shot from inside the blue line after taking a feed from Ladd. Winnipeg’s Adam Lowry was in front of the crease as the puck slipped under Crawford’s pads. Following a scoreless and scrappy second period, the Jets came out strong in early in the third. Little’s power-play goal, set up by Bogosian’s slick pass, put the Jets ahead 2-1 at 9:31 of the third. Thorburn, at the edge of the crease, tipped in Lowry’s feed from the top of the slot 28 seconds later. Teravainen picked up a loose puck made it 3-2 with 7:17 left on a shot from the slot. With Crawford on the bench for an extra attacker, Ladd scored into an empty with 29 seconds to seal the win.

Jonathan Toews has seven assists in a five-game point streak, but his 11-game goal drought is his longest since going a career-worst 12 to begin the 2008-09 season. ”You’re going to have your moments across the season,” Toews said. ”We’re not going to overreact and make a huge deal or panic about anything – the same way we don’t get overconfident when things are going our way.” Antti Raanta will make his first start since a 5-2 loss at Edmonton on Jan. 9 for the Blackhawks, who fell 2-0 on the road in the most recent meeting with Arizona on Feb. 7.
