NHL Predictions: Will Wild win as underdog at Blackhawks? 1/10/18

Nick Schmaltz and Jonathan Toews netted two goals apiece, while Richard Panik, Patrick Sharp and Jan Rutta each made their own contributions to the scoring frenzy.

Panik's goal preceded a parade of points from Kane, who had four assists during a five-goal second period.

"I think one of the things we really haven't really had the fortune of this year is to have a hot power play", Kane said.

"You win and you lose as an entire team", said Boucher.

"It's 4-0 and, yeah, we make it 4-2 but you just have to use so much energy to try to get back into a game like that". Let me know where they stand when there is 10 games left in the season! After 30 relentless minutes in the net, he was replaced by Mike Condon, who allowed four goals on 17 shots.

"To [the Wild's] credit, I thought in the second and third period, they really buckled down and played really hard".

The Blackhawks power play broke out with a 4-for-6 night against Ottawa after failing to convert in their previous four games. It paid off early, as Seabrook pounced on a Michal Kempny rebound in the crease and knocked it in for just his second goal of the season.

At the time, Buzzfeed News admitted it contained unverified allegations but said it wanted Americans to "make up their own minds". Several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations.

Both Ottawa goaltenders have struggled all season, but veteran Dion Phaneuf said it's unfair to put the blame on them. "I really can not be honest than to say we have to find a way to be better and more consistent".

"We fell off in the second period and we couldn't climb back", said alternate captain Dion Phaneuf. "We made mistakes in key areas and our goaltenders have been solid".

Over the span of 4:39, Craig Anderson surrendered three goals on four shots. Chicago is only 2-6 this season in that scenario and Minnesota is 2-4, but a sample from the OddsShark NHL Database that is more favorable to the Blackhawks is their 5-1 record in their last six home games. Stephenson wound up with 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Toews added another in the third, giving him five goals in his last five games.

If this ugly loss wasn't bad enough, the Senators will e have to recall a forward Wednesday night against the Maple Leafs in Toronto because winger Bobby Ryan left with a hand injury late in the second period, didn't return and coach Guy Boucher told reporters he won't play.

NOTES: D Mark Borowiecki (concussion), Johnny Oduya (lower body) and C Nate Thompson (lower body) did not play for the Senators.

Technically, the Wild trailed the Blackhawks in the standings entering the night by virtue of playing one more game. "We have an interesting decision (Wednesday against the Wild) as well".
