#1 CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Blackhawks and Jonathan
Toews executed their plan – and didn’t waste any time in overtime.Toews scored nine seconds into the extra period and had an assist in regulation to lead Chicago past the Colorado Avalanche Calgary Flames Hats Authentic , 2-1 on Tuesday night.The winner was generated directly from the faceoff at center ice. Toews pulled the draw to Duncan Keith, who passed to Patrick Kane on the right side. Kane fed Toews on a 2-on-1 and the Chicago captain chipped his 18th goal past Semyon Varlamov from the low edge of the circle.The Blackhawks’ signature puck possession game has disappeared for much of their disappointing season. But in overtime, Chicago was the only team to touch the puck on a play Toews said came almost off the drawing board.”It was nice to get that chance right away and bury it,” Toews said. ”Overtime can go either way, and it’s usually one great scoring chance to the next.””That was a pretty good play,” coach Joel Quenneville said. ”A great pass and a great shot. Good ending there.”Chicago’s Jean-Francois Berube stopped 33 shots and Erik Gustafsson connected in the first as the fading Blackhawks won for the second time in five games.Berube was sharp in his fourth game since being called up from Rockford of the AHL. The Blackhawks have been without injured No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford since Dec. 23.”Every time you go in the net you try to showcase yourself,” Berube said. ”For me, it’s `Take it one game at a time and play the game I can play and let the result unfold.”’Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon extended his points streak to six games with his team-leading 32nd goal in the second period. MacKinnon has seven goals and six assists during the run and eight goals and nine assists in his last eight games.Varlamov stopped 25 shots as the Avalanche lost their second straight in overtime, but earned a point to pull even with the idle Los Angeles Kings, who are in the second Western Conference wild-card spot.Coach Jared Bednar was disappointed his team didn’t buckle down in overtime for a chance to leapfrog Los Angeles.”Wish we had two (points) Custom Calgary Flames Jerseys ,” Bednar said. ”I didn’t think we played a complete game tonight.”And then, not happy with the overtime goal at all. We made a mistake on that easy coverage and we let a guy get in behind us, and it cost us the second point.”The Avalanche lost 4-3 at home to Nashville on Sunday.Gustafsson was credited with opening the scoring 5:08 into the game.The defenseman whipped a crisp pass from the top of the left circle toward Kane at the right side of the crease. Kane was covered by Colorado’s Patrik Nemeth, but the puck deflected off Nemeth’s left skate and into the net.MacKinnon’s power-play goal with 3:42 left in the second tied it. After taking a cross-ice feed from Tyson Barrie, MacKinnon fired in a high shot from the left circle, beating Berube on the stick side as the goalie slid across the crease.An apparent goal by Chicago’s Brandon Saad with 1:17 left in the period was disallowed after a video review determined Saad kicked the puck into the net with his right skate.Capping a spinning move, Kane fed the puck across the crease to Saad on the left side of the net. The puck struck Saad and a replay showed him sweeping it just over the goal line.Varlamov stopped Chicago rookie Alex DeBrincat on a point-blank deflection two minutes into the scoreless third. He made a close-in glove save on Toews minutes later.Colorado’s J.T. Compher fired a rebound wide of a partly open net with 5:40 left in regulation.Each team failed to convert a power play late in the third.NOTES: Avalanche C Colin Wilson missed his second game after suffering a head injury against Minnesota last Friday. … Earlier on Tuesday, the Blackhawks signed Gustafsson to a two-year contract extension and F Tyler Sikura to a one-year contract for 2018-19. The 25-year-old Gustafsson played his 20th game this season with Chicago on Tuesday night. Sikura, also 25, has skated with AHL Rockford www.officialhurricanes.com , where he leads the farm team with 16 goals in his first season there. He’s the older brother of Blackhawks prospect Dylan Sikura, who’s finishing his senior year at Northeastern University. Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman has said he wants to sign Dylan after the NCAA season ends.UP NEXTAvalanche: Visit Columbus on Thursday night.Blackhawks: Host Carolina on Thursday night.— ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Marc-Andre Fleury has played more games than any other NHL goaltender this season. It hardly appears to be taking a toll.The 34-year-old Fleury stopped 34 shots for his league-leading seventh shutout and the Vegas Golden Knights swept the season series from the Anaheim Ducks with a 3-0 victory Friday night.“My teammates helped me out blocking shots and taking rebounds away. It was a good team win,” said Fleury, who has played 55 games and also leads the league with 31 wins.It was Fleury’s 11th shutout for Vegas and the 55th of his career. Two have come against Anaheim, and 13 in March.“We played good all night and Fleury was excellent,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “They didn’t have a whole lot of good chances but when they did he made some great saves.”Fleury said he doesn’t feel tired despite playing in all but 11 games this season, but his workload over the final five weeks of the regular season might be watched more to make sure he is primed for the playoffs.“I’m fine. Our schedule is less busy right now,” he said. “We’ll go with the flow and try to stay healthy.”William Karlsson, Alex Tuch and Cody Eakin scored for Vegas Carolina Hurricanes T-Shirts Authentic , which won its third straight. The Golden Knights are on their longest streak since winning seven consecutive games in late December and early January but remain nine points behind San Jose for second place in the Pacific Division.“The win is awesome but the amount of times he shuts a team out is phenomenal. It gives us energy,” Tuch said about Fleury. “He’s probably the biggest part of our team’s success right now.”John Gibson made 31 saves for Anaheim in his first start since Feb. 7. Gibson had missed the last nine games due to a concussion and having his wisdom teeth removed.The Ducks have lost five in a row and are 3-10 since the All-Star break.“We’re out-chancing a lot of teams, so the stats say. We’re just not scoring, and other teams are scoring timely goals against us,” Ducks forward Nick Ritchie said.Karlsson scored his 19th at 14:49 of the first period when he took a cross-ice pass from Mark Stone and caught Gibson out of position. It was Stone’s first point with the Golden Knights since he was acquired from Ottawa on Monday.The Golden Knights had scored just twice in 28 power-play opportunities on the road coming into the game.Tuch got his first goal in 15 games and 17th this season at 18:13 of the second when he put a backhand between Gibson’s legs. Jonathan Marchessault was able to grab an errant puck off the boards and fired a stretch pass to Tuch as the Ducks were in the middle of a line change.“It’s been a little bit and I almost forgot the feeling,” Tuch said. “We’ve been playing real good hockey so far. We’ve got to clean up little bits and pieces and make sure we don’t let teams back in the game.”Eakin added an empty-net goal at 19:40 of the third for his 16th this season.NOTES: Anaheim RW Corey Perry tied team captain Ryan Getzlaf for most games played in franchise history at 971. Getzlaf has missed the past five games due to an upper-body injury. … The Ducks were 0 for 2 on the power play and have not converted in eight chances over the past five games.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Host the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.Ducks: Host the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.
