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

They scored five in losing the previous two games. “I felt like we played the right way from the outset,” said right wing Patrick Kane , who had one goal and two assists. “Power play started us off, and then we just kind of took off from there.” The Penguins (26-12-7) may feel the same way about the fisticuffs that filled Tuesday’s 3-2 overtime loss at Philadelphia. 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. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-penguins-preview-160326964–nhl.html

Kari Lehtonen had 38 saves. “We’re coming together here halfway through the year,” Jamie Benn said. “It’s just coming together as a team, playing good team defense and getting contribution from everyone.” Patrick Kane scored his 21st goal for Chicago, and Corey Crawford finished with 28 stops. “You’re going to have your moments across the season,” Blackhawks captain Jonathan 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.” The Blackhawks trailed 2-1 before they turned a strange play by Dallas defenseman Jordie Benn into the tying score. Benn was sent off for interference after he skated up to Marian Hossa from behind and flipped the forward’s stick out of his hands, all the way to the protective netting behind the Dallas net. Saad scored on the resulting power play, tipping home a rebound after a long shot for Sharp. After Fiddler scored on his own rebound in the final minute of the first, Saad tied it again when he spun around and flung the puck past Lehtonen for his 15th goal at 7:13 of the second. NOTES: The Stars and Blackhawks play again on March 21 in Dallas. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-eakin-helps-dallas-stars-beat-chicago-blackhawks/article_a0a63dfe-a005-11e4-b224-cf19ba668c2c.html

NHL: Blackhawks hand Coyotes sixth straight loss 6-1 – Daily Republican Register: Daily Republican Register

“We’ve 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 Sunday’s 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. “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. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-blackhawks-hand-coyotes-sixth-straight-loss/article_9297509e-a150-11e4-bf0a-4b78b9531147.html
