Blackhawks head to Nashville for Round 1 - let the playoffs begin!

The Blackhawks finished out their season in a ho-hum 3-2 loss to the Avalanche. Since Colorado had already been eliminated and Chicago was already locked into third in the Central, Coach Joel Quenneville opted to rest a few of his top players in advance of next week's playoffs. So the team can be forgiven for playing less than their best, in a game that ultimately had no meaning for them.

With the regular season finished, the Blackhawks end with a record of 48-27-6 (102 points), and a +41 goal differential. Corey Crawford, who finished with a record of 32-20-5, 2.27 GAA, and .924 sv%, shares William Jennings Trophy honors with the Canadiens' Carey Price (44-16-6, 1.96 G...

Game Preview: Islanders Head North Looking For Revenge

It was only a few short weeks ago that the Montreal Canadiens and their contingent of rowdy fans stormed into the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and halted an Islanders 4 game-winning streak with a 3-1 victory. Fast-forward to tonight and the Islanders (30-13-1) are on another 4 game winning streak, and once again are set to square off against the Canadiens (27-13-3). Only difference is, the Isles and their raucous supporters are traveling north of the border looking to extend the streak to 5.

Blackhawks' hard work pays off in 5-0 win at Montreal

The Blackhawks haven't had the start to the season that they would have liked: heading into Tuesday night, they were 6-5-1, their 13 points just good enough for 10th place in the West. This wasn't where Chicago was supposed to be, even among the powerhouse Central division. Part of it was the team's skewed performance: despite averaging a league-best 37.9 SOG/game (not to mention all the blocked and missed shots), the pucks just weren't always going in, even when the Blackhawks were grossly outshooting their competition. Prior to tonight, 10 of the Blackhawks' twelve games were 1-goal affairs, with two determined in OT, and two in the shoot out.  Statistics...

Flyers give up 3-0 lead; lose in shootout

On Saturday, there were two versions of the Philadelphia Flyers to be observed.

Through the first two periods, the Flyers looked like a team that was on its way to win the first game of the season. But in the third, they were a team that barely came away with a point.

The Flyers blew a 3-0 lead in the third period, ultimately losing 4-3 in the shootout to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday. The Flyers (0-2-1) lost their third straight game, starting the season with three losses for the third straight year.

"It sucks," winger Wayne Simmonds said. "We were up 3-0. Obviously you don't get the two points, you’re disappointed."

Blackhawks face the Habs in Montréal on Saturday

The Chicago Blackhawks will face another Original Six team on Saturday night as they play the Canadiens at the Bell Centre in Montréal.

Last year, the Canadiens completely missed the playoffs and languished near the bottom of the league for most of the shortened season. This year, the team has turned around completely: with a 25-15-5 record and 55 points, they're sitting at third in the Atlantic division. They have a strong penalty kill - 3rd best in the league, at 86.3%.

Additionally, eight Habs will be representing their home country in the Olympics: Carey Price and P.K. Subban for Canada; Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin for Russia; Max Pacioretty for the U.S....

Flyers Hang On to Spoil Briere's Homecoming

A loud ovation after a long-awaited return home greeted Danny Briere.

All that was missing was a victory. Briere didn't get that as the Flyers held on for a 2-1 win over the Canadiens to snap a three-game losing streak.

Michael Raffl and Claude Giroux both scored for the Flyers, who held a 2-0 lead into the final minute of play. Steve Mason didn't get the shutout but he made 20 stops in the win.

The win came less than 24 hours after the Flyers were hammered by the Canadiens, 7-2.
