Losing Streak Now At Five For The Chicago Blackhawks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,

For three minutes and 28 seconds Wednesday night, the Blackhawks were truly awful. A failed clear by Duncan Keith led to a Nicklas Backstrom goal. Anton Forsberg let in a brutally soft goal by Tom Wilson from the boards. Then nobody picked up the greatest goal-scorer of his generation trailing a Wilson breakaway, and Alex Ovechkin cashed in the rebound.

Three-zip, just like that.

But here’s the thing about the Hawks’ 6-2 loss to the Capitals — their fifth straight loss and their seventh straight loss in Washington. For much of the other 56 minutes or so, the Hawks didn’t look bad. They had six of the first seven shots of the game. They had 15 of the first 16 shots in the second period. When J. F. Berube came in to relieve Forsberg after the three-goal flurry, he didn’t face a second shot until more than 18 minutes had passed. That’s utter dominance.

“Don’t be fooled,” Joel Quenneville growled afterward. “[Our] shots hit them right in the chest, with no chance of getting a second opportunity. It’s almost like we gave the puck back to them, just putting it at the net with no purpose.”

Slump Continues For The Ottawa Senators

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Yes, the Senators put up a better effort Wednesday night after a tongue-lashing from coach Guy Boucher during an 80-minute skate Tuesday, but this trip to Disneyland was no holiday treat as Ottawa suffered its ninth loss in the club’s last 10 games with a 3-0 defeat to the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center....

Goaltender Craig Anderson suffered his sixth straight loss and now hasn’t won since back-to-back victories over Colorado nearly a month ago in Sweden.

“If we’re going to talk about effort it’s not going to get us anywhere. We played a much more solid game but couldn’t find a way to score a goal. Those are small things as well and something we need to work a little bit more on,” said captain Erik Karlsson. “We played a much better game but it didn’t give us the result we wanted.”

The Senators didn’t get the job done … again.

Another Bad Game From The Edmonton Oilers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Journal,

Head coach Todd McLellan warned his team the morning of the game about taking the Philadelphia Flyers lightly.

They didn’t listen.

At least, we hope they didn’t listen because if they did, and they really were trying their hardest, the Edmonton Oilers are done.

The team that got snuffed out by the Flyers Wednesday night at Rogers Place isn’t going anywhere but down.

Not only did they lose, at home, in a must-win game, to a team with one victory in it’s previous 11 starts, they looked especially bad doing it.

Lifeless, disorganized, all the usual maladies that have plagued them all year.

It was bad. In a game between two organizations trying to right their sinking ships, the Oilers spent the evening taking on more water.


from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

Just when you thought they were out of the funk, the team that spanked New Jersey 6-3 and returned to stink the joint out against Detroit, clobbered Vegas 8-2 and returned to soil the sheets against St. Louis returned. The team that put together an impressive performance winning 6-2 in Detroit then went to 30th overall Buffalo and delivered another dud, was back.

The club that won 4-2 in Boston and returned to soil the sheets against Phoenix re-entered the arena.

If Brossoit wasn’t now 1-5-1 and not improving his goals against average (3.80) or his save percentage (.872), you’d say it just wasn’t fair.

Golden Knights Historical Season Discussed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Gracie Kuhn on the Vegas Golden Knight’s meteoric rise in the Western Conference. The Vegas Knights historical season is discussed, including odds on their playoff chances as well as some individual and team props.

“Gerard Gallant is getting the most out of his group on a nightly basis. Vegas’ 16 ROW (“regulation + overtime wins”; historically, an excellent indicator of overall team strength) is tied for second in the league, only behind the Tampa Bay Lightning (17). What has made the Knights so successful and put them in prime position to make the playoffs? The Coles Notes version is speed, depth, and hard work.

When GM George McPhee started charting out his roster, he had a clear vision: build the fastest roster possible, one with players who could all play in a very specific way. He wanted a team that could play with relentless tenacity and pace. What he built is a squad that forces turnovers like no other thanks to an aggressive and persistent forecheck. That style of play — i.e. a quick and bruising north-south transition game — renders a team that is greater than the sum of its individual parts and makes Vegas a handful for even the NHL’s elite. Most other teams in the West play a more skilled, east-west game, and Vegas is uniquely suited to exploit these teams.”

The overnight report: On Secret Santas, overachievers, Green, Nyquist and battle drills

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Of disparate Red Wings-related note this morning:

1. The Red Wings did a very good deed with kids from Detroit's Clark Park, engaging in a shopping spree with youngsters who didn't know that in addition to buying presents for sick kids in Children's Hospital, the kids would be able to purchase their own gifts as well. WXYZ's Brad Galli chronicled the shopping trip via a Facebook video:

2. In the overchiever's category, Dr. Murray Howe has written a book about his father, Gordie, titled, Nine Lessons I Learned From My Father. Murray is taking part in a book tour presently, and he's currently in Vancouver, where his father was a minority owner of the WHL's Vancouver Giants. Murray told the Vancouver Province's Steve Ewen that his book could have been much, much longer:
