This will be its third of eight straight road games, five of those coming after the All-Star break starting Jan. 27 against Philadelphia. Coach Dave Tippett was pleased with his club’s effort against the Jets despite the loss, as Lauri Korpikoski and Tobias Rieder scored in the final seven minutes of the third to force overtime. Mike Smith, who has struggled to a 3.43 goals-against average and .887 save percentage, made 27 saves in an overall solid effort. “We hung around all game,” Tippett said. “(Smith) gave us a good game, and we found a way to keep chugging in the third. Give our guys a ton of credit. I like the way we hung around the game.” Keith Yandle, who had a goal and an assist in the most recent meeting with Chicago, recorded an assist for the third straight game. Shane Doan returned after missing the previous two with a lower-body injury and had two assists. ”To tie it up in the third and to get points shows a lot of will and fight in our team,” Yandle said. Smith will look to end a four-start skid. He made 30 saves for his fourth shutout in 17 career starts, including playoffs, against Chicago in the last meeting. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/coyotes-blackhawks-preview-204346700–nhl.html

“But they’re a different team than we saw last year. That’s a team that can win and beat anybody because they work their tails off.” Chicago rookie Teuvo Teravainen got his first NHL goal, Brandon Saad also scored, and Corey Crawford finished with 31 saves. “Tonight, I just thought I was ready to shoot everything,” the 20-year-old Teravainen said. Jets forward Mathieu Perreault left the ice gingerly with 9.4 seconds left in the second period after being cross-checked across the back by Chicago’s Daniel Carcillo, and didn’t return. Perreault, who scored four goals against Florida on Tuesday, had six goals and three assists in his last five games. The Blackhawks dominated early in an uptempo, physical first period punctuated by two free-swinging fights. 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. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-jets-defeat-blackhawks—behind-rd-period-rally/article_ae91f9d0-9e2a-11e4-925f-bbef622c955e.html
