DALLAS -- Patrick Sharp is having a big season -- and thats just counting his stats against the Stars. Sharp extended his domination of Dallas with two more goals that sent the Chicago Blackhawks to a 6-2 victory Tuesday night. Brandon Saad also scored twice for Chicago, which has won three of the four games between the teams. One victory was in a shootout. Sharp has four goals and four assists against the Stars this season, with one goal at home and the other seven points in three games at Dallas. In his last eight games versus the Stars, he has eight goals and seven assists. "Weve had some success here, but its still a tough place to play and the Stars are a tough team to play against," Sharp said. "I thought we did a good job of sending a lot of pucks on net. Not too many prime chances, but the ones we had, we made sure we capitalized on them." Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists for the Blackhawks. Defenceman Michael Kostka returned after missing 24 games because of a foot injury to score Chicagos first goal. The Central Division-leading Blackhawks (22-6-5) reached six goals for the fifth time this season, and second in a row. They defeated Florida 6-2 on Sunday. Dallas has given up six goals in three different losses. Antoine Roussel scored in the second period for the Stars (14-10-5) to end Antti Raantas shutout bid. Roussel was credited with another goal when he deflected Sergei Gonchars drive into the net with 19 seconds remaining in the game. "I thought when we scored our first goal, we kind of got the momentum. But then they bounced back again. Theyre a hard team to play against," Roussel said. Three of Roussels seven goals have come against Chicago. "Hes the one bright spot," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "They hate playing against him, and he showed why. He wasnt afraid to get into dirty places and he got rewarded for being in the right place. I admire the way he plays the game." Ruff couldnt find much else to say about his team that was positive. "We just got flat-out outworked. Youre not going to win like that. That was something weve taken a lot of pride in, but we got outskated," he said. "If we want to be one of the best teams, weve got to beat the best." Raanta finished with 27 saves for his fourth win. Dan Ellis replaced Stars starter Kari Lehtonen after he gave up four goals in the first 28:20. Chicago dominated the first period, with 14 shots on goal to four for the Stars. The defending Stanley Cup champions scored barely 2 minutes into the game. Kostka drove the puck from the top of the right circle toward a crowd in front of Lehtonen. The deflected puck slid toward the right post. Lehtonen smothered the puck with his glove, and the goal light did not go on. After a video review, referee Kelly Sutherland announced that the puck had crossed the goal line. Kostka had his second goal of the season, in just his third NHL game this season. He also played on a conditioning assignment at Rockford of the American Hockey League. "Its always good to be able to get right back in the action after a little bit of a time off there," Kostka said. "It was good also to be able to go down to Rockford and get a few games in. I had to get my timing back." Seconds after the Stars Dustin Jeffrey sent a close-in attempt wide left, the Blackhawks quickly moved the puck up ice. Kane skated in on a breakaway and beat Lehtonen at 12:05 for his 17th goal and a 2-0 lead. "When we let go of coverage and give Kane a breakaway, thats inexcusable," Ruff said. The Blackhawks went up 3-0 on Saads first goal 2:46 into the second period. Kostka took a shot from a narrow angle, Dallas couldnt control the rebound and Saad poked the puck in from in front of the net. "Its good obviously when you start like that, you can build off it," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "Had a good second period and were in the right spots. It was a real nice win. It was nice to see us play so well on the road." Sharp then scored two goals less than 3 minutes apart for a 5-0 lead, giving him 14 goals this season. The period ended 6-1 after Roussels first goal and Saads second, at 19:15. NOTES: Raanta started in goal because Corey Crawford reportedly sustained a groin injury Sunday against Florida. Raanta replaced Crawford in the first period vs. the Panthers and earned a victory. The Blackhawks recalled rookie Kent Simpson from Rockford to back up Raanta; Crawford did not travel to Dallas. ... The Stars failed to score on their five power plays, dropping their home success rate to 1 for 47 (2 per cent). Chicago was 1 for 5 with the man advantage. The Blackhawks have killed each of the last 10 power plays against them. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

Point scored twice and had an assist as the Canadians tuned up for their U18 world championship opener Thursday against Sweden. "He goes to the hard places," said head coach Kevin Dineen, who recently guided the Canadian womens team to Olympic gold in Sochi. "He earns everything he gets." Point, who plays for the Western Hockey Leagues Moose Jaw Warriors, had a goal and an assist in last Fridays 3-2 loss to Finland. The five-foot-eight forward has been centring a line with Travis Konecny of the Ottawa 67s and Brendan Perlini of the Niagara IceDogs. Konecny had a goal Monday and Perlini added three assists. "For the most part that line has been very good," Dineen said. "Theyre a pretty dynamic group." Ryan Gropp of the Seattlee Thunderbirds, Clark Bishop of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, Ben Thomas of the Calgary Hitmen and Haydn Fleury of the Red Deer Rebels had the other Canadian goals.dddddddddddd Julio Billia of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens and Mason McDonald of the Charlottetown Islanders split the goaltending duties. Billia allowed both goals as Canada outshot Denmark 46-23. Preliminary round play begins Thursday and continues through April 22 with the medal games set for April 27. Canada has won gold at this tournament on three occasions: 2003, 2008 and 2013. The defending champions havent had a lot of time together. Some players just arrived in Europe on Monday. "Were at a bit of a disadvantage ... with this quick turnaround and putting a team together," said Dineen. "But at the end of it were talking about the best 17-year-old hockey players in Canada and when you have that it may make up a little bit for lack of chemistry." ' ' '
