CHICAGO — Coming out of a three-day holiday break Authentic Artturi Lehkonen Jersey , the Chicago Blackhawks are hoping to re-establish some of the momentum they have built of late.Although their record isn’t close to where they would like it to be, the Blackhawks (13-20-6) are 4-2-1 over the past seven games heading into their home date with the Minnesota Wild on Thursday at the United Center.More Wild coveragePhotos of the Week: 12/30/18 – 1/5/19Wild Breakaway: Wild start slow, finish fast in beating OttawaSpurgeon scores twice, Wild beat Senators 4-3WATCH: Wild’s Spurgeon scores pair of goals vs. OttawaSt. Cloud State’s Ryan Poehling shines at World Junior ChampionshipDespite a 6-3 loss to the Florida Panthers on Sunday, Chicago — which remains without goalie Corey Crawford (concussion protocol) — has found a level of confidence that had been absent for much of the difficult stretch that cost Joel Quenneville his job in early November.Now, coming off a brief respite that will lead into the second half of the season, the Blackhawks hope to play with the kind of energy they were over the past few weeks.“We know we’re a good team,” Chicago forward Dylan Strome said after Sunday’s loss, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We’ve just got to play the right way and follow the game plan. I think when we’re getting pucks out along the walls and creating chances and we’re locking down defensively and not giving them second and third chances, we’re a good team. Hopefully we can continue that after Christmas and continue the little good run that we’re on.”While it’s uncertain how long the Blackhawks will be without Crawford, the veteran goalie attended Chicago’s morning skate before Sunday’s game. Crawford, who has been out since Dec. 16, is eligible to come off of injured reserve on Thursday and coach Jeremy Colliton characterized Crawford’s attendance at the morning skate as a positive.Cam Ward has seen the majority of time in net since Crawford’s injury Carey Price Jersey , but Collin Delia played well in his season debut last week. Colliton recently told reporters that he doesn’t have a plan in place of who will start on a nightly basis.“Performance will dictate (who plays),” Colliton said, according to the Tribune. “Both guys have been good lately and hopefully that keeps going.”Minnesota, meanwhile, enters Thursday’s game looking for its first victory since Dec. 13 and hasn’t played since Dec. 22 when it lost to the Dallas Stars 2-1 in overtime. The Wild have managed just three goals in their past four games and have yet to tally more than one goal since their 5-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Dec. 13.Entering the Christmas break on a four-game losing streak wasn’t exactly ideal.“It’s frustrating and it’s disappointing,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau told reporters after Saturday’s loss, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “I was really disappointed for the players because you can see they stayed on the bench and they hung their head. They really wanted (Saturday’s game).”The Wild (17-15-3) had chances to snap their three-game losing streak but couldn’t capitalize on three power-play chances they had against the Stars, including on four-minute chance they had with an extra attacker.Moving forward, Boudreau said his team has to be better when chances at scoring — and ultimately winning — are at stake.“Those are the times you’ve got to put teams away,” Boudreau said, according to the Star-Tribune. “You have no choice. That’s what you’ve got to do.” NEW YORK (AP) — Cam Talbot had every reason to celebrate as the buzzer sounded and the Edmonton Oilers cemented their first win of the season.Talbot stopped 23 shots against his former team, Connor McDavid had a goal and an assist to lead the Oilers past the New York Rangers 2-1 Saturday.It was also Talbot’s first win over the Rangers, the team he helped reach the Stanley Cup Finals in 2014 as a backup to Henrik Lundqvist. Talbot was all smiles as the Oilers prepared to fly home after their season-opener in Sweden and two weeks overall on the road.“This is right up there with the first win of my career Jeff Petry Jersey Kids ,” said the 31-year-old goaltender, who spent two seasons with the Rangers before they traded him to the Oilers before the 2015-16 season. “I hadn’t gotten the best of them yet so I was definitely looking forward to that and happy to get this out of the way.”McDavid scored his second of the season at 6:23 of the third period, redirecting the puck past goalie Henrik Lundqvist on the power play with Rangers forward Vladislav Namesnikov in the penalty box for holding. Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had assists.The Oilers lost their season opener 5-2 against the New Jersey Devils in Sweden before dropping their next game 4-1 on Thursday at Boston.The 21-year-old McDavid, who has led the league in points each of the past two seasons, has points on all five Oilers goals in three games this season. The Edmonton captain, the Oilers’ first overall selection in the 2015 NHL draft, is one of 11 first-round picks on the roster.“We’ve only scored five goals in three games. When offense isn’t there, you need to check. I thought we did a great job finally getting a win in a tough building,” McDavid said. “It wasn’t the prettiest way to win a game but we needed to win a game.”Mika Zibanejad opened the scoring for the Rangers with 7:11 to go in the first period. The fleet Zibanejad took a pass from defenseman Marc Staal and put the puck past the former Talbot. Defenseman Brendan Smith also assisted on Zibanejad’s first goal this season.Zibanejad also twice rang shots off posts behind Talbot, who also denied the forward in the waning seconds..“We came out really well in the first 10 minutes and kind of slowed down a little bit after that,” Zibanejad said. “I thought we had plenty of chances to put this one away.”Nugent-Hopkins tied it with 5:43 left, tapping a rebound past Lundqvist for his first this season. Defenseman Darnell Nurse — playing his 200th NHL game — and McDavid assisted.The Rangers came out with purpose for the matinee against the previously winless Oilers. The home team was coming off its first win, a 3-2 overtime victory over San Jose on Thursday after opening the season with three losses under new coach David Quinn.Lundqvist made 25 saves and the Rangers defense was steady for the most part. But timely scoring has emerged as a problem area as New York has started the season with four losses in five games.Quinn — who made the leap from Boston University to the NHL when he replaced Alain Vigneault after last season — said he is seeking a fiercer approach when his squad has the puck.“We have to have more tenacity offensively Jonathan Drouin Jersey ,” Quinn said. “And we have to shoot more. Shooting creates opportunities.”The Rangers had won each of their last five games against the Oilers, dating back to Dec. 15, 2015.Staal, 31, the second-most senior player on the Rangers’ roster after Lundqvist, said he remained confident despite the result and was heartened by the team’s work ethic.“I liked the start of our game. We had good legs and good pace,” he said. “We just have to find a way as a team to be confident in these situations and close out a game.”NOTES: The Rangers visit Edmonton on March 11 to complete the season series. … Rangers D Kevin Shattenkirk returned to the lineup after he was healthy scratch in the previous game. … The Rangers scratched D Neal Pionk, D Tony DeAngelo and F Cody McLeod. … Edmonton scratched F Zach Kassian, F Alex Chiasson and D Matt Benning.UP NEXTRangers: Host Colorado on Tuesday night.Oilers: Visit Winnipeg on Tuesday night.
