Sharks Blank Red Wings In Shootout
(Detroit, MI) -- Logan Couture scored the lone goal in the shootout as the Sharks blanked the Red Wings 1-0 at Joe Louis Arena. Antti Niemi made 24 saves plus stopped all three shootout attempts for his fifth shutout of the season and 24th of his career. San Jose improved to 8-0-1 and currently leads the NHL with 17 points. Jimmy Howard denied 27 shots for the Wings, who fell to 6-3-1.
Giguere Powers Avs Past Penguins
(Pittsburgh, PA) -- Jean-Sebastien Giguere [[ zhih-GARE ]] stopped all 34 shots he faced to record his second shutout of the season and lead the Avalanche to a 1-0 win over the Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center. It's the 38th bagel Giguere has delivered in his career. Gabriel Landeskog [[ LAN-deh-skogg ]] scored his third goal of the year in the second period to provide all of the offense for Colorado, which improved to 8-and-1. Marc-Andre Fleury halted 13 shots in the cage for Pittsburgh. The Pens saw a four-game winning streak come to an end and fell to 7-and-2.
Calgary Wins on Late Goal
(Los Angeles, CA) -- In a tumultuous contest that saw the Kings fall to the Calgary Flames 3-2 in late, unfortunate fashion, the Kings hurt themselves by taking five consecutive penalties in the second half of tonight’s bout. Calgary’s game-winning tally, off the stick of T.J. Brodie with just :29.2 seconds remaining in regulation, incidentally came while Anze Kopitar was serving a seriously questionable penalty. Special teams were the storyline throughout Monday’s Pacific Division match-up, as every single goal scored came during a man-advantage situation. All three of Calgary’s tallies came on the power play. The Kings struck gold once on a power play opportunity of their own, and also on the penalty kill – which is their second shorthanded goal of the season.
Blackhawks Take On Panthers
(Sunrise, FL) -- The Blackhawks skate against the Florida Panthers tonight just outside Miami. Chicago enters the contest having won four out of five with a 5-1-2 record on the year. The Panthers stopped a three-game skid on Saturday to move to 3-6. The puck drops at 6:30.
