When Jeremy Colliton was handed
#1
CHICAGO — the reins of the Chicago Blackhawks last week Womens Evander Kane Jersey , he understood that there weren’t going to be any quick turnarounds.That hasn’t changed in the three games Colliton has spent behind the Blackhawks’ bench — all losses, which has extended Chicago’s losing streak to eight games heading into Wednesday’s game against the St. Louis Blues at the United Center.While the frustration remains present throughout the Blackhawks’ roster, the patience that Colliton is being forced to exhibit must also trickle down to his players as they attempt to get things turned around.Article continues below ...“We can only take it one game at a time,” Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said after Monday’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, according to The Athletic. “You’re putting yourself behind quite a bit by going on a slide like this, but it happens. Good teams go through it, and good teams have overcome it before.“So it’s a long year and all we can worry about is the next game. We’ve got a home game coming up and this road trip wasn’t what we wanted, but like I said it’s tough to get thrown in right away with a lot of things to adjust to, but a good feeling is there and the guys are really bought in to what the coaching staff is saying and Jeremy Colliton is saying, so we’re as optimistic as we can be given the situation we’re in.”Chicago’s latest loss came after the Blackhawks built a 2-0 advantage — their first lead in a game under Collison, who replaced fired Joel Quenneville last week. But as they have experienced many times this season, they were unable to put a team away and once again couldn’t figure out how to win.The Blackhawks placed forward Marcus Kruger on injured reserve Tuesday with a left leg injury and called up defenseman Gustav Forsling. Forsling underwent wrist surgery during the summer and has started the season with the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate.Kruger is eligible to return Friday, but the Blackhawks will get Brandon Saad back on Wednesday. He missed the past two games after he was hit on the arm by a puck last week in practice. Saad, like many of his teammates Authentic Joe Pavelski Jersey , has been intent on watching video as the Blackhawks hope to adjust to Colliton’s system.“What we were doing (before Colliton) wasn’t working,” Saad said Wednesday, according to the Chicago Tribune. “He’s our new coach. We want to commit to his system and buy into his play. Once we get that going, we’re going to have some success.”The Blues, meanwhile, begin a stretch of three games in four days (all on the road). St. Louis has won four of its past six games but is coming off a 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.St. Louis coach Mike Yeo told reporters on Tuesday that center Brayden Schenn (upper body injury) wouldn’t play Wednesday but could return to the ice sometime during the upcoming three-game road trip. Schenn has missed three straight games.“We were hoping that he’d be ready for tomorrow, but he’s not,” Yeo told said, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Hopefully, we’ll have more information (Wednesday). As of right now, I’m not concerned, but obviously things could change and things could linger, so we’ll see.” OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) One day after being eliminated from playoff contention for the second straight year Joe Thornton Jersey , the reeling New York Islanders were glad to get another win.Andrew Ladd scored the tiebreaking goal late in the third period to lift the Islanders to a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.Anders Lee, Anthony Beauvillier and Brock Nelson also scored to help New York get just its third win in 17 games (3-10-4). Jaroslav Halak stopped 33 shots.”As athletes we want to win, we hate losing so we want to compete, we want to go out there and work hard do the right thing,” Beauvillier said. ”It’s about pride, it’s about playing for us and it’s about feeling good about ourselves.”Matt Duchene, Erik Karlsson and Bobby Ryan scored for Ottawa, which has lost six straight for the second time this season. Mike Condon finished with 27 saves.”It’s frustrating,” said Duchene, who also had two assists. ”I thought we were probably the better team start to finish. We had a lot of sustained pressure in their end, some really good scoring chances and Halak was good for them. It’s frustrating, even though the points don’t mean anything right now, you want to win games.”Ryan tied the score 3-3 for Ottawa with 4:34 left after he sent a shot on goal and New York’s Brandon Davidson deflected it into his own net.Ladd regained the lead for the Islanders with 2:03 remaining as he tipped Thomas Hickey’s shot past Condon for his 11th of the season.”It was a little scrambly game, but we kept fighting and it was good to see (Ladd) get the winner Joonas Donskoi Jersey ,” Islanders coach Doug Weight said. ”We had to weather some storms. They put a lot of pucks on the net. They had some pretty good power play looks and we managed to hold on so it was good.”It was a good win.”Trailing 2-1, the Islanders tied it in the game 1:23 into the second as Beauvillier beat Condon with Jordan Eberle in front to screen.The Senators had a number of chances to regain the lead as they outshot New York 13-7 in the middle period, but Halak made several big saves.Nelson gave the Islanders a 3-2 lead with 1:18 to go in the period as he fired a wrist shot past Condon for his 18th of the season.The Islanders opened the scoring on the power play 6:15 into the game as Lee, with his team-high 39th, backhanded John Tavares‘ rebound past Condon.The Senators then scored twice to take the lead.

His father, Randy, was the Senators’ general manager from 1993-95.NOTES: Ottawa D Ben Harpur was a healthy scratch. … Senators RW Mark Stone missed his ninth straight game with a leg injury, while Marian Gaborik missed his third straight game with an undisclosed injury. … Davidson knocked a puck into his own goal for the second straight game. On Monday night in a 3-0 loss at home against Florida, the Panthers’ Evgenii Dadonov sent a pass from the left side boards toward the net for a streaking Nick Bjugstad, but the puck deflected off Davidson’s skate and past goalie Christopher Gibson.UP NEXTIslanders: Host Florida on Thursday night.Senators: Host Toronto on Friday night.
