  • Blackhawks overcome 3-goal deficit Dec 29, 2014 11:08 PM
    Jonathan Toews scored the only goal in the shootout, after Chicago’s Bryan Bickell netted the tying goal with 1:13 left in regulation, and the Blackhawks topped the Nashville Predators 5-4 on Monday night. Bickell beat Pekka Rinne through a crowd — and with Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford on the bench for an extra skater — after Rinne had stopped David Rundblad’s drive from the blue line. Toews provided the winning margin when he beat Rinne on the Blackhawks’ first shootout attempt. Brad Richards, Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa scored in a 7:10 span late in the second period to tie it at after the Predators built a 3-0 lead. James Neal’s second goal of the game, a power-play tally with 56 seconds left in the second period, put Nashville ahead 4-3. Roman Josi and Craig Smith also scored, and Colin Wilson added two assists. Rinne made 38 saves, and Crawford stopped 36 shots before his perfect shootout as the division rivals met for the fourth and final time in the regular season. Chicago’s Patrick Sharp had an assist for his 500th NHL point, earned in his 700th game. There were surprising scoring bursts and swings, considering the game matched the teams with the league’s best defensive records. Chicago entered with an NHL-leading 2.03 goals-against average. Nashville’s was at 2.06. The Predators were a step quicker in the first period and built a 2-0 lead as they put 18 shots on Crawford. Josi opened the scoring at 11:50, five seconds after the Predators killed Wilson’s hooking penalty. Josi raced down right wing and fired a rising shot over Crawford’s stick. Smith made it 2-0 with 2:48 left in the period and seven seconds after a Nashville power play ended. Crawford stopped Wilson’s first close-in attempt, but Smith popped in the rebound. Neal was credited with his first goal at 7:28 of the second period to make it 3-0. Then the Blackhawks roared back. Rinne made point-blank stops on Toews and Patrick Kane during a Chicago power play midway through the period. Richards made it 3-1 seven seconds after the advantage ended, at 10:33. Shaw stuffed in a loose puck from the side of the net with 4:12 left in the period to cut it to 3-2. Hossa’s 4-on-3-power-play goal, ripped over Rinne’s glove from the top of the right circle, tied it 3-all 1:55 later. Just six seconds after Chicago was penalized for having too many men on the ice, Neal buried a rebound of Filip Forsberg’s drive to put the Predators back ahead.

  • Blackhawks suffer lopsided loss at home Dec 23, 2014 10:53 PM
    Mathieu Perrault scored two goals while extending his point streak to eight games, and the Winnipeg Jets routed the listless Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 on Tuesday night. Bryan Little also had his team-best 13th goal as Winnipeg stopped Chicago’s eight-game home winning streak. The Jets are responsible for two of the Blackhawks’ four regulation home losses, also winning 1-0 at the United Center on Nov. 2 in their first meeting of the season. Winnipeg (18-10-7), one of the NHL’s biggest surprises, won for the third time in four games, bouncing back from a 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. The Jets led the Flyers 3-1 after two periods, but were unable to close it out. It was the Blackhawks’ worst loss of the season; they have only three losses by more than one goal. Chicago (23-10-2) had won 14 of 17 overall. Marian Hossa scored his seventh goal in the second period, but the Blackhawks struggled to generate quality chances. Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson, who began the day with an NHL-best .940 save percentage and 1.73 goals-against average, finished with 38 saves. Winnipeg jumped on Chicago for three goals in the first, chasing Corey Crawford while outshooting the Blackhawks 15-7 in the period. Perreault started the flurry with a wrist shot that went over Crawford’s glove at 9:04. Little took a pass from former Blackhawks forward Andrew Ladd to make it 2-0 at 13:18, and Anthony Peluso slammed home a loose puck for his first goal since Dec. 31, 2013. Peluso’s third career goal put an end to Crawford’s night after 13 shots, with Antti Raanta coming in with 4 1/2 minutes left in the period. Perreault added a power-play goal in the second for his eighth of the season. He has five goals and four assists in the NHL’s longest active point streak. Chicago got on the board when Brandon Saad set up Hossa for a breakaway, and the veteran forward beat Hutchinson into the upper left corner at 12:05. The Blackhawks then turned up the pressure, but Hutchinson made a couple of nice stops on Patrick Kane in the final minute of the second. Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal for Winnipeg, which dropped three of four against Chicago last season. Ladd finished with two assists.
