Looking further into the Blackhawks traditionally bad

The crowd gasped in disbelief after Darling made the backup. His teammates had to catch their breath too.

"It was a kind of saving," said captain Jonathan Toews, who had a goal and two assists. "It was just to give a kick to the long legs (Eaves) probably thought he had a goal anything and put on ice." The foot Scotty comes from nowhere.

The Hawks are up after their sixth consecutive victory, but the night was not all warm fuzzies for the Hawks. They lost winger Tyler Motte to an apparent injury to his left leg in the second period.

"Time was short and 6-on-4 is a fairly dangerous look," Quenneville said. "Fortunately, we had a little game on the net. We had 5-on-4 ordinary and it was running, and I always thought with 2 1/2 (minutes) or two and change you would like 6-on-4. "
Hossa was the player who has left the bench with about 35 to 40 seconds left in the penalty four minutes at high adhesion to Vernon Fiddler, and it took only 10 seconds to score him.

Jonathan Toews Jersey sent the puck from the right circle through the crease and Richard Panik and Hossa swept their sticks to it simultaneously with the goalkeeper Keith Kinkaid Devils on the other side of the net.
"It was a clear path from post and I put everything I had just to make sure I put it in the net," said Hossa. "I know that Richard put his stick again, and we all looted everything in the net. No matter who got the goal as it was the goal to tie."
Artemi Panarin, who also scored for Chicago, took a shot from the right circle on Anisimov fifth goal of the season. Kinkaid, who made 26 rescues, has stopped the shooting, but no chance on the rebound.

"The puck came to me in the right position, and I just put in," Anisimov said.
Crawford had kept the Blackhawks in the game in the first two periods, stopping 25 of 26 shots, including all 16 in the second period.
Chicago has surpassed New Jersey 17-4 in the third period and overtime.
PA Parenteau and John Moore scored for New Jersey, which was 3-0 at home. Kinkaid made 26 saves in his first start of the season.
"If you break this game, we controlled the play, we played hard, dictated the play of the game," said coach John Hynes. "We played hard enough to win a point, and do not play smart enough to win two points."
Moore gave the Devils the lead early in the third period with a slam dunk at the front.
Taylor Hall has done all the work on the first goal of the season for Moore. He carried the puck into the Blackhawks zone, skated into the right circle and sent a backhand pass to the net. The puck hit the skate of Devils forward Kyle Palmieri and went straight to a wide open Moore.
Panarin, who hit the post in the first period, tied the score 1-1 in the second period with a power-play goal just 13 seconds after Damon Damon Severson Deverson defender was called for hooking.
The Chicago Blackhawks punishment to start the 2016-17 season was bad. Historically bad.

After allowing another power play goal in Friday night's game against the New Jersey Devils, the Hawks had given up an astonishing 15 goals on 27 occasions. They gave up a total of 46 in 2015-16. How is he compares to the worst falls ever? STATS inc. A began keeping statistics in 1987-88 and the rate of PK Hawks is the worst since.

"It can not be worse" is a kind of attitude loser, "said goaltender Corey Crawford in Chicago Chicago Tribune. "We have to fight hard and be hungry for the kill ... and be proud to kill things."

As the saying goes, "Your goalie is your best penalty killer," it is not all about Crawford who had given up only three goals strength even in five games before Chicago Friday. In fact, before Friday, the Hawks had surpassed their opponents 16-8 in 5-on-5.

Needless to say, their killing is 30th place in the league with 3-3-1 in their record after seven games. They currently sit outside a playoff spot.

For all the problems the Hawks hat dodged over the years, it seems that it is finally catching up to them.
The puck slid Patrick Eaves, the left side of the net was open and the game was about to be completed.

Down by a goal late and in a four-minute power play in the closing minutes of the third period, the Chicago Blackhawks Coach Quenneville took a chance and pulled his goalie with more than two minutes to to play.
It did not take long for Marian Hossa to make the gamble paid off, setting the stage for Artem Anisimov to be a hero in overtime.
Hossa tied with 2:11 remaining in regulation and Anisimov scored on a rebound at 1:15 of overtime as the Blackhawks rallied to beat New Jersey 3-2 Friday night, handing the Devils their first home defeat.

All Eaves had to do was bury the shot.

But Scott Darling 6 feet 6 had a final round in his sleeve, or more precisely, in his skate. He scrambled just in time to get his blade on the stroke of Eaves by launching the coup and maintaining equality in overtime that would become a 4-3 Hawks because Darling pulled the improbable backup.

"It took every centimeter of me for this,"

In fact, every centimeter of him and his skate blade.

Marian Hossa scored the winner on a blast from the point with 28.7 seconds remaining for a victory that would not have been possible without the help of Darling by 32 rescues, some of which came when the Hawks had to kill a four-on The penalty -three additional session. That's when Darling tempered golden kick Eaves.

"I just tried to get something out there," Darling said. "Fortunately, it hit me."

Motte then crashed awkwardly into the boards after fighting for the puck with Stars center Radek Faksa.

Motte soon get up and although he got up without assistance, he could not put pressure on his left leg as he left for the locker room. He did not return. The coach Joel Quenneville said the Hawks will know more about the status of Motte Monday, but it seems Motte "could miss some games."

The Hawks overcame the loss Motte to erase a 2-1 lead Stars with a flurry of scoring in the third period. What was unusual was that they turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead while playing four against four hockey. With Antoine Roussel and Patrick Kane in the penalty area, the Hawks have equalized when Toews took a perfect pass from Hossa and won his third goal of the season at 3:39.

Toews then created Artem Anisimov for the eighth goal of the season Anisimov at 4:35. Anisimov, who added an assist and a screen on the winner of Hossa is now tied for leading the league with eight goals, has lead the league with 17 points and scored a run in 11 consecutive games.

But the oohs and ahs Sunday were reserved for Darling and her savings. It can be difficult for Darling to develop a rhythm and a quick jolt needed to stop the shots like Eaves. But in year 2 to save Corey Crawford, Darling said he is more comfortable and prepared when he gets his turn.

"Honestly, I felt it was my best game," Darling said. "I felt the most comfortable ... You're never so happy when you have missed three goals, but we have succeeded."

All because Darling failed Objective 4 when it seemed all but certain that he would.

"Our identity in the past was to be fast and have the puck," said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville at the Chicago Sun-Times. "Now we have not really rotating four lines, or the puck enough to get this precision that we seek, that identity that we are used to have. We do not play as fast, because we defend a lot more than we are accustomed. "

In the first week of the season, Chicago dropped a pair of power play goals to Nashville with two defenders from drawing point. Watch as the points are left uncovered, giving the defense Preds time and space while the net on the front is blocked in front of Crawford.

Planning could be a factor for a team with young younger faces in the lineup. Chicago has twice played three games in four nights in October.

After killing a penalty Friday night, there was reason to celebrate.

Although it is too early to draw hard conclusions on almost anything in the NHL so far this year (read: Canucks, Predators), bad is bad is bad. There is no right answer right away, but the questions attract attention.

Are Chicago Blackhawks too good to fail? PK or is it symptomatic of wider problems and development?
Patrick Kane found last year Rookie of the Year in the left circle and beat Kinkaid with a shot at the top corner with Anisimov selecting the goalkeeper.
Parenteau gave New Jersey the lead with a power-play goal with 4:28 left in the first period. Crawford stopped the shot from defender Yohann Auvitu but the puck jumped into the air, hit the front of Devils Devante Smith-Pelly and Parenteau knocked in the rebound for his third goal.
Crawford was the difference in the second period, stopping all 16 shots for New Jersey. His best was a glove slap on a Hall power play chance with New Jersey in front 1-0 and the point-blank rebound stop Beau Bennett with the game tied 1-all.

Marcus Kruger, one of the top killers of team penalties, knows the old cliché not to do too applies here.

"We must all be on the same page and to trust each other," said Kruger to the Tribune. "Everyone has to do his job. You are not trying to catch someone else and do not you trust instead of doing your job.

The Blackhawks lack depth forward in a way they have not really recent years. While their talent base, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Artemi Panarin, and some supremely talented defenders find themselves in the ranks of Ryan Hartman, Tyler Motte, Jordin Tootoo and Nick Schmaltz.
