NHL: Blackhawks’ Carcillo suspended six games – Daily Republican Register: Daily Republican Register

The teams combined for 93 penalty minutes with 66 coming in a second period that included four fights, stemming from a boarding major and game misconduct for Zac Rinaldo’s hit on Pittsburgh’s Kris Letang late in the opening period. Letang didn’t return after being hit from behind, and his status is unknown while Rinaldo is expected to face a suspension from the NHL. Despite filling the penalty box, Pittsburgh failed to convert on all six power plays as it lost a third straight game – one shy of its season high set from Dec. 22-29. “With that many opportunities and the skill we have, we should make them pay for that,” captain Sidney Crosby said. Crosby has 13 points in eight games, but didn’t get any for just the second time over that stretch Tuesday. The star center may benefit from a return home, where he has nine points in five games and scored twice in a 4-1 win over Chicago on March 30. Evgeni Malkin missed that matchup with a foot injury, but he has six points in five career meetings with the Blackhawks. The center, who has 10 points in his last eight games, will join Crosby and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury at Sunday’s All-Star game in Columbus. Chicago is expected to have five players on the ice Sunday, including captain Jonathan Toews, who will fill the same role on one of the All-Star teams. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-penguins-preview-160326964–nhl.html

NHL: Eakin helps Dallas Stars beat Chicago Blackhawks 6-3 – Daily Republican Register: Daily Republican Register

He celebrated by skating over to the boards and slamming his arms against the glass as the crowd of 21,427 cheered wildly. “It was a relief. I needed it, for myself,” Shaw said. “I just had to go out there and keep working and keep moving forward and simplify my game and I knew I’d get it.” Shaw added a well-placed wrist shot in the final minute of the second. Duncan Keith set up the score by making a nice play along the boards to keep the puck in the Arizona zone. Chicago also got a power-play goal from Jonathan Toews on the captain’s bobblehead night, and Blackhawks defenseman David Rundblad scored in the third period against his former team. It was Toews’ first goal since Dec. 21 against Toronto, stopping an 11-game drought. “We wanted to have a good start and I thought we did that. And we just carried it through,” Keith said. NOTES: Kane’s assist on Toews’ opening goal was his 542nd career point, passing Tony Amonte for ninth on the franchise list. … source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-blackhawks-hand-coyotes-sixth-straight-loss/article_9297509e-a150-11e4-bf0a-4b78b9531147.html

Games that we’re expected to win. 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

Blackhawks hand Coyotes 6th straight loss, 6-1 – Washington Times

Chicago Blackhawk

Just got outcompeted, outworked in a lot of different areas, Smith said. It was almost like we were on break before break started. The Coyotes played without left wing Mikkel Boedker, who had appeared in 257 consecutive games for the fourth-longest streak in team history. The 25-year-old Boedker, who leads Arizona with 14 goals, had his spleen removed after he was injured in Sundays 4-3 shootout loss at Winnipeg. Arizona coach Dave Tippett said everything is going wrong for his team right now. Weve got to find some kind of plan and move our group ahead because this is unacceptable, he said. Shaw had just one goal in his previous 22 games. He played sparingly in the third period of Sundays 6-3 loss to Dallas, but he was much better right from the start against Arizona. The feisty center scored his seventh goal with a slick move at 12:48 of the first, faking a backhand before going to the forehand side to give Chicago a 2-0 lead. He celebrated by skating over to the boards and slamming his arms against the glass as the crowd of 21,427 cheered wildly. It was a relief. I needed it, for myself, Shaw said. source: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jan/20/blackhawks-hand-coyotes-6th-straight-loss-with-6-1/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS
