Jarome Iginla and James Neal each scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins routed the Ottawa Senators 7-3 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
“I thought some guys worked hard and played a good game,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “Again, with our club we need all 20 guys going, and we didn’t have all 20.”
Go to bed one night and Jarome Iginla is saying goodbye to Calgary and hello to Boston. Wake up the next morning and Iginla is not going to Boston. He’s going to Pittsburgh.
Jarome Iginla spent 16 years chasing a Stanley Cup in Calgary. The Penguins think he’ll only need three months playing alongside the likes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to grab one in Pittsburgh.
Ray Emery made 16 saves for his first shutout in more than three years, defensemen Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook scored, and the Chicago Blackhawks snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.
Now that the streak is over, it’s time for the Chicago Blackhawks to get on with the business of winning another Stanley Cup.
The Chicago Blackhawks lost to the Vancouver Canucks after a late game meltdown yielded two goals. They continue their road trip Monday night against the Calgary Flames.
Despite Patrick Kane’s early injury against Calgary that took him out of the game, the Blackhawks still dominated the ice. Both teams scored their goals during the first period with the exception of Bolland’s goal just before the game’s end.
The Blackhawks have won eight of the last nine meetings with the Flames, but lost the last time they faced each other. Chicago is hoping to recover from a 3-0 loss to the Canucks Friday where the Hawks saw a Turco they weren’t used to.
