For almost 36 minutes, it looked like the Blackhawks were shooting at a brick wall. But a lucky bounce got the Hawks on the board, and a great team effort kept the Blackhawks’ record perfect on the young season. Patrick Sharp had … Continue reading →The post Gritty Blackhawks Stay Undefeated appeared first on Committed Indians.
DALLAS (AP) -- Marian Hossa scored his NHL-leading fifth goal on a power play 1:41 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 comeback victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.
With Dallas captain Brenden Morrow in the penalty box for interference, Hossa fired a one-timer from the slot past goalie Kari Lehtonen after receiving a nifty, behind-the-back pass from Patrick...

7:30 PM CT
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
Chicago comes into this game as one of the top offensive teams in the league (though it’s just three games) with an average of 4.7 goals per game.
That hot start can mostly be attributed to the play of Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews...
The longer that Jamie Benn goes unsigned in Dallas, the more the Stars are being inundated with a variety of inquiries about whether the team would consider trading his rights. That's just how it goes, as teams try to feel out what it would take to land the burgeoning first-line center and the Stars at least formulate backup plans in case someone blows them away with an offer...

Lehtonen was brilliant tonight (40 saves), only giving up 1 goal to Damien Brunner with 4 seconds left in the game.
Jimmy Howard was very good, but the Stars made the most of their opportunities to defeat Detroit 2-1.
One stat stands-out to me, the Wings are 0-15 on the pp over their first three games (0-4 tonight).
The Dallas Stars did some things well last night but were unable to slam the door on the undefeated Chicago Blackhawks after building an early 2-0 lead. As a result of some missed scoring chances when there was a chance to put the game away, followed by late penalty trouble and inability to kill the penalties, the Stars skated off with a 3-2 overtime loss and settled for one point...
Final - Overtime
Dallas Stars 2 – Chicago Blackhawks 3
Dallas was both unlucky and very fortunate to get at least a point in this game. Chicago dominated possession of the puck and put enormous pressure on Kari Lehtonen the entire game. The Stars couldn’t stay out of the penalty box and that, in the end, was the difference in the game as the Hawks scored three power play...
After yesterday's revelation that they were using their empty seats as a humor device, the Dallas Stars have now turned in a direction I was not expecting. They are now inventing players for their press releases!
Even children's books are incredulous.
No, Tasha Pym, we have never seen a Sneep.
Shame on you, Dallas Stars. Shame. On. You.
DETROIT -- He didn't get the shutout, but Kari Lehtonen got the win.

Rookie Damien Brunner ruined Lehtonen's shutout attempt by scoring his first...
Now that the Dallas Stars finally have reached a contract agreement with their star player, they can devote their full attention to what's happening on the ice.
Jamie Benn likely won't be around, though, to try and help contain Blues rookie sensation Vladimir Tarasenko.
