Hawks earn extra point in the shootout at Columbus

By Brad Gardner

The Blackhawks took two more hard fought points from the Blues Jackets at Nationwide Arena in a 2-1 shootout victory. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane each scored in the shootout while Corey Crawford stopped two of the three Columbus shooters to seal the victory.

The Blue Jackets extended their point streak to 10 games but the club took only their second point from Chicago on the season. The Blackhawks won all four meetings between the two teams in what has turned out to be the final season that the two teams can be considered division rivals. It was far from an easy season sweep for the ‘Hawks, however, as each of those four victories were by one goal.

The fourth and final meeting of the season between the two teams was the longest yet, but despite a superb 39-save effort from Sergei Bobrovsky, the Blackhawks were able to beat the Jackets goaltender with each of their first two shootout attempts. Read more »

Hawks Score Early and Often, Sweep Season Series with Columbus

By Jon Fromi

The Chicago Blackhawks visited the doormat that is the Columbus Blue Jackets Tuesday night. The Blackhawks had not dropped a contest to the visiting Blue Jackets all season, and a strong effort in the opening minutes paved the way for an easy 5-1 victory.

Chicago took control of the contest in the fifth minute when Bryan Bickell went to the corner for a loose puck, won the ensuing battle, and threw the puck off of the appropriately positioned Andrew Shaw and into the Columbus net. Shaw got the credit for the goal and the ‘Hawks led 1-0 just 4:12 into the game.

Patrick Sharp doubled that lead two minutes later after Viktor Stalberg found him in the corner just short of the goal line. Sharp let fly with a shot that caromed off of goalie Steve Mason and in to make it 2-0 with just 6:17 gone in the opening period. Read more »

TTMI~Radio, Kings’ Beat with MayorsManor.com

On tonight’s show we’re joined by The Mayor, coincidentally enough, owner and author of MayorsManor.com, an outstanding LA Kings’ blog.

John joins us to give us the latest on the Drew Doughty contract hold out, where the two sides stand and how Doughty’s status is, or isn’t, affecting his teammates.

Over this solid hour, we covered the Kings’ depth and versatility on the blue line.  We take a look at the rookie who will likely step in to hold Doughty’s place in the line up in the interim; Jack Johnson’s place heading into his new 7-year contract and Willie Mitchell’s health and value entering what is a contract-year for the former Canuck blue liner.

Up front we preview a new-look top six and the competition for jobs on the Kings’ third and fourth lines.  Also, Mayor gives us his thoughts on Mike Richards in LA, where the real leadership comes from on this Kings team and why the Mayor believes this group of Kings are the real deal.

We covered all-things Kings.  The Mayor does a terrific job covering the team.  From player interviews, behind the scenes insight to breaking news, MayorsManor is a must-visit for LA Kings information and analysis.

TTMI~Radio returns this week with a look to the Pacific Division and the upward bound Los Angeles Kings.  We are joined by The Mayor of MayorsManor.com, who gives us the lowdown on all-things LA Kings. 

Terry Murray’s Kings, led by stars Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, Jack Johnson and many others figure to be a prominent fixture and pain in the side of teams like the Blackhawks, Sharks and Red Wings not only in 2010-11 but for many years to come.

For you Twitter-ers, you can also follow The Mayor @ Twitter.com/Mayor119

In the last half hour of the show, we explain what went wrong with last week’s show (a transcript of my interview with player-agent Scott Norton will be posted on the site in a day or two) and why the live show hasn’t been posted on line to date as well as why Antti Niemi and agent Bill Zito made the right choice in signing with the Sharks.

As for our discussion with the Mayor, we covered many topics, including, but not limited to….

- Review and fallout of Kings’ first-round exit dealt by the Canucks in April

- Interesting battle brewing between the pipes this season between Jonathan Quick and rookie Jonathan Bernier.

- Facts behind the Kings’ pursuit of Ilya Kovalchuk

- Likelihood Jack Johnson could be dealt and the Kings’ pursuit of a true #2 centreman

- Updates on talent-rich prospect field including; defenseman Thomas Hickey, Colton Teubert, Vyacheslav Voinov, Alec Martinez and Nicolas Deslauriers and yet another goaltender, Martin Jones.  As well as when we can expect to see forwards Brayden Schenn (who many believe could become the Kings’ #2 center much sooner than you’d think) and Russian winger Andrei Loktionov.

- As young and talented as the Kings were a year ago, four of their more-recent 1st round picks are in-line for solid NHL careers, but have yet to crack LA’s roster.

- The signing of former ‘Nucks blue liner Willie Mitchell

- Who’s the real leader in LA?  And an interesting behind the scenes story of an event that led to the Kings’ turnaround last season.

- Wayne Simmonds

- Matt Greene, Brad Richardson and more key Kings you may not know but should

- LA Kings fans and the atmosphere inside Staples Center

- Southern Cal vs Northern Cal rivalry

Again, check out Mayor’s work at MayorsManor.com.
