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

“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. 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. He’s riding a season-high six-game point streak, totaling eight while also netting his first goal of that stretch Tuesday to end an 11-game drought. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-penguins-preview-160326964–nhl.html

The Stars (21-17-7) also earned their first victory of the season against the Blackhawks after they dropped their first three meetings. “The game went back and forth,” Eakin said. “They started strong and we didn’t, then we picked up our socks. The third period was good, which we needed, and that’s the difference.” Tyler Seguin had a goal and an assist for Dallas, which was coming off a 5-4 victory over Washington on Saturday night. Seguin is tied with Rangers star Rick Nash for the NHL lead with 28 goals. Chicago (28-15-2) dropped consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 1-2 against Toronto and Winnipeg. The Blackhawks, who lost 4-2 to Winnipeg on Friday night, are just 3-5 in January after they went 10-2-1 in December. “We’re not happy,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “Home games. Games that we’re expected to win. Teams that played the night before. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-eakin-helps-dallas-stars-beat-chicago-blackhawks/article_a0a63dfe-a005-11e4-b224-cf19ba668c2c.html

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. … The Coyotes say Boedker is week to week following the surgery. D Zbynek Michalek also missed the game with an upper-body injury, putting Brandon Gormley in the lineup. … Blackhawks F Daniel Carcillo served the second game of his six-game suspension for an illegal hit on Winnipeg’s Mathieu Perreault in the second period of Friday night’s 4-2 loss to the Jets. Chicago also scratched injured F Kris Versteeg and D Tim Erixon. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-blackhawks-hand-coyotes-sixth-straight-loss/article_9297509e-a150-11e4-bf0a-4b78b9531147.html
