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

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. The six goals allowed were a season high for Chicago. Vernon Fiddler also scored for Dallas, and Jamie Benn had three assists. 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. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-eakin-helps-dallas-stars-beat-chicago-blackhawks/article_a0a63dfe-a005-11e4-b224-cf19ba668c2c.html

Blackhawks-Penguins Preview – Yahoo Sports

Raanta started in place of Corey Crawford, who likely will get the nod in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. Arizona lost its sixth consecutive game, extending its season-worst streak. Lucas Lessio scored his first career goal in the second, and Mike Smith finished with 45 stops in the Coyotes’ final game before the All-Star break. “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 Sunday’s 4-3 shootout loss at Winnipeg. Arizona coach Dave Tippett said everything is going wrong for his team right now. “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. source: http://tristate-media.com/drr/nhl-blackhawks-hand-coyotes-sixth-straight-loss/article_9297509e-a150-11e4-bf0a-4b78b9531147.html

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

Chicago (29-15-2) has been inconsistent in going 4-5-0 since New Year’s Day, totaling 19 goals in those victories compared to nine in the defeats. The Blackhawks had little trouble finding the net Tuesday, scoring the first four goals of a 6-1 romp of Arizona. 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. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-penguins-preview-160326964–nhl.html
