Blackhawks beat Wild; play vs improving Oilers on Friday

The Avalanche had a "goalie win" versus the Blackhawks earlier this week; last night, Chicago did the same versus the Wild.

There's been few games this season where the Blackhawks have been held under 25 SOG; last night, they had just 20 - but 4 of them were goals, including one empty-netter.

Chicago broke the streak they were on by scoring first, for the first time in seven games, a Patrick Sharp goal 5:08 into the opening period. Patrick Kane would stretch the lead to 2-0 by the end of the period with a power play goal on Thomas Vanek's 5-minute penalty.

Jason Zucker put the Wild on the board just 1:03 into the second.

Hawks hang on to win 2-1 over Calgary Flames

The Hawks came in looking to rebound off of their loss in New York vs the Islander and bounce back they did. Most importantly they worked hard to beat a very hard working team and can take pride in their efforts and skate away with a solid team win.

The New Jersey Devils (11-13-4; 26 points) current sit outside the playoff picture in the East. They're not bad enough to be in the "Connor McDavid sweepstakes", but they're not exactly breathing down the necks of the 8th place team (Florida, 11-8-7, 29 points, 2 games in hand over NJ).

On Monday night, Jaromir Jagr, 42, played in his 1,500th NHL game - only the 15th player in NHL history to do so. In that game, he had a goal and assist to bring his career total to move into 5th place in the NHL all-time points list...
