Blackhawks Beat Canucks With Four-Goal Second

(Vancouver, British Columbia) -- Brandon Saad tallied two goals and an assist as the Blackhawks used a four-goal second period to beat the Canucks 5-2 in Vancouver. Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews had a goal and helper each for Chicago, which snapped its season-high four-game losing streak. Corey Crawford kicked aside 29 of the 31 shots he faced in the victory. Chris Higgins and Tom Sestito both scored for the Canucks, who have dropped three-of-four. Robert Luongo allowed four goals on 39 shots in the setback.

Rangers Edge Isles At Yankee Stadium

(Bronx, NY) -- Daniel Carcillo scored the deciding goal early in the third period as the Rangers edged the Islanders 2-1 at Yankee Stadium. Benoit Pouliot lit the lamp with 47 seconds to go in the second period for the Blueshirts, who were coming off a 7-3 win over the New Jersey Devils at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.  Henrik Lundqvist made 30 saves in the victory. Brock Nelson netted the lone goal for the Isles, who have lost four straight.  Evgeni Nabokov stopped 32 shots in his first start since suffering a lower-body injury on January 6th.  The teams meet again Friday at Madison Square Garden.

Oilers Blank Sharks

Scrivens set an NHL record for saves in a regular-season shutout. It was also his first whitewash since joining the Oilers earlier this month. Taylor Hall tallied a goal and two assists, while Jordan Eberle had a goal and a helper for Edmonton, which has won three in-a-row for just the second time this season. Justin Schultz also lit the lamp in the victory. Antti Niemi stopped 24 of the 27 shots he faced for San Jose, which suffered its second straight loss via shutout on the heels of a six-game winning streak.
