Roundup: Penguins beat Blackhawks in shootout

Friday, 09.20.2013 / 1:31 AM / Roundup

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks gave 20,150 fans at United Center a show Thursday night.

Beau Bennett's shootout goal was the winner when the Penguins defeated the Blackhawks 4-3 in their last appearance in Chicago before the teams meet at Soldier Field on March 1 in the fourth and final game of the NHL's Coors Light Stadium Series.

Bennett scored the only goal in the tiebreaker after the Blackhawks rallied from a 3-1 deficit. Sidney Crosby's goal 4:19 into the second period put the Penguins up by two, but Ben Smith scored a shorthanded goal at 12:17 to get the Blackhawks within a goal, and Brandon Bollig beat Tomas Vokoun with 6:53 left in regulation to force the overtime.

"I thought physically they were more dominating in that area, but we got ourselves back in the game and did what we had to do," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said.

Marian Gaborik had two goals and an assist and Brandon Dubinsky had three assists to help the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 at PNC Arena on Wednesday night.

Alexander Semin had two goals for the Hurricanes, but goaltender Cam Ward was beaten five times on 31 shots. Jeremy Welsh and Eric Staal also scored for Carolina. Jay Harrison and Michal Jordan each had two assists.

"It was a start. There are still some things to be ironed out, and the best way to do that is through playing games," Harrison said. "Tomorrow, we'll come back, revisit it and continue to build."

Rookie center Boone Jenner had a goal and an assist and Tim Erixon had two assists for Columbus. Curtis McElhinney stopped 18 of 22 shots before being replaced midway through the game by Mike McKenna, who stopped all 12 shots he faced.

Vigneault gets first win as Rangers coach

Wednesday, 09.18.2013 / 12:49 AM / Roundup

Derrick Brassard had a goal and an assist, and newcomer Benoit Pouliot also scored to lead the New York Rangers to a 3-2 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday, giving Alain Vigneault his first win behind New York's bench.

"They both, I thought, played to their strength," Vigneault said of Brassard and Pouliot. "They moved the puck, they used their speed. They had some quality chances, they even had some real good chances on the power play. There seems to be a little chemistry there and hopefully it's going to continue to improve."

Brassard, acquired last season in the trade that sent Marian Gaborik to Columbus, broke a scoreless tie 1:10 into the second period when his wrist shot beat Flyers goalie Steve Mason.

Iginla scores twice as Bruins beat Canadiens

Tuesday, 09.17.2013 / 1:42 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Jarome Iginla wasted little time showing why the Boston Bruins wanted him.

Iginla scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, as the Bruins opened their preseason by beating the Montreal Canadiens 6-3 on Monday night.

The longtime Calgary Flames captain signed with the Bruins as a free agent this summer after opting for a trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins rather than Boston as the trade deadline approached in April. He opened the scoring with a power-play one-timer past Carey Price 8:29 into the game, then broke a 3-3 tie when he beat Price's replacement, Robert Mayer, from the slot at 9:33 of the third.

The line of Iginla, Milan Lucic and David Krejci made life miserable for the Canadiens all night, combining for three goals and six points.

Oilers defeat Flames in Saddledome opener

Sunday, 09.15.2013 / 12:55 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

The Calgary Flames recorded a victory Saturday just by playing in Scotiabank Saddledome. But the Edmonton Oilers won the preseason opener at the repaired arena, 3-2, in a split-squad game.

Defenseman Martin Marincin scored the game-winner with 4:52 left in the third period.

The Saddledome in late June sustained significant damage caused by record-setting floods throughout southern Alberta that forced more than 100,000 evacuations.

"It's just unbelievable to put this great rink back on its feet in so few weeks," Flames coach Bob Hartley told the team's website before the game. "It's just unbelievable. It allows us to be back in the saddle tonight and have fun."

Hodgson's goal, assist, help Canucks edge Oilers

Sunday, 10.02.2011 / 1:08 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Vancouver Canucks have been waiting for three years for Cody Hodgson to blossom into the player they thought he'd be when they took him in the first round of the 2008 Entry Draft. It looks like he might be ready.

Hodgson scored Vancouver's first goal and added an empty-netter as the Canucks ended their preseason by beating the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 at Rogers Arena on Saturday night.

Roberto Luongo stopped 28 of 29 shots, allowing only a second-period goal to Magnus Paajarvi that tied the game at 1-1. Jannik Hansen beat Nikolai Khabibulin from the slot 5:36 into the third period before Mikael Samuelsson and Hodgson added goals in the final minute.

"I think as a team we really got better as the game went along," Luongo said. "In the third period we really shut them down and took over."

Caps rally to beat Sabres in shootout

Saturday, 10.01.2011 / 1:10 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

With most of his regulars in the lineup, Washington coach Bruce Boudreau got the kind of effort he wanted.

The Caps tied the game on Matt Hendricks' goal with 6:27 left in regulation, then won it on Nicklas Backstrom's goal in the sixth round of the shootout as they beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 on Friday night.

Washington is just 2-3-1 in the preseason, but the team that played Friday night looked more like the one that has Stanley Cup ambitions.

Sharks blank Canucks to stay perfect in preseason

Friday, 09.30.2011 / 2:31 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

The San Jose Sharks look like they're ready to go.

San Jose won its fifth preseason game without a loss by blanking Vancouver 3-0 on Thursday, completing a two-game sweep of the team that kept the Sharks out of the Stanley Cup Final last spring.

Joe Pavelski, Dan Boyle and Jamie McGinn scored, and Thomas Greiss stopped all 25 shots he faced for the Sharks, who beat the Canucks 4-3 in Vancouver on Sunday.

"It was a good game, and we continue to get better," said Sharks captain Joe Thornton, who had two assists. "That's been our goal since the first day of training camp."

The Canucks (2-5-0), who lost in Anaheim on Wednesday night, again chose to keep many of their stars off the ice. Backup goaltender Cory Schneider stopped 33 shots but didn't get much help from a lineup in which only Mikael Samuelsson and Manny Malhotra reached double figures in goals last season.

Ducks, Hiller hold off Canucks 3-2

Thursday, 09.29.2011 / 1:40 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The first appearance of the new season by many of Vancouver's stars ended the same way the last appearance of the old one did -- with a loss.

Lubomir Visnovsky's third-period power-play goal broke a tie and the Ducks held on for a 3-2 win at the Honda Center in the first preseason game for several key Canucks -- including goaltender Roberto Luongo and star forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin. They hadn't taken the ice since losing Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final last spring.

Visnovsky, the top-scoring defenseman in the NHL last season, beat Roberto Luongo with a slap shot at 5:08. Jonas Hiller made 31 saves and withstood a 6-on-3 power play in the final minute.

Oilers' prized youngsters lead the way vs. Coyotes

Wednesday, 09.28.2011 / 1:07 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The NHL's last two No, 1 picks continue to mesh,

Taylor Hall, the top pick in 2010, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, selected first in the Entry Draft three months ago, combined for all three goals as the Edmonton Oilers rolled to a three-goal lead before holding off the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 on Tuesday night,

Nugent-Hopkins had a power-play goal in the first period and set up two goals by Hall in the second, Linemate Jordan Eberle assisted on Hall's second goal, giving the Oilers' top trio a seven-point night,

"All three of us gelled together pretty quick and it paid off, I love playing with those guys, It's a ton of fun," Nugent-Hopkins said after his second game with Hall, "They make things easier for me because they played here last year, I'm just reading off them,"

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
