CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks had Brad Richards at second-line centre for much of training camp, and then coach Joel Quenneville returned Andrew Shaw to that role near the end of the preseason. Yeezy Boost 350 Saldi .Sure looks like a smart move right now.Shaw, Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad combined for two goals and five assists, and the Blackhawks used a four-goal third period to beat the Buffalo Sabres 6-2 in their home opener on Saturday night.It is satisfying. Playing with those two guys, you know theyre going to make plays, Shaw said, so I just try to go to the dirty areas and get them the puck and go to the net and they seem to make a lot of things happen.Shaw, Kane and Saad helped lead Chicago back from a 3-1 deficit in the Western Conference final last season, but the Stanley Cup champion Kings won Game 7 in overtime. The Blackhawks then signed Richards in the off-season, but it looks as if Shaw is right at home playing centre behind captain Jonathan Toews.That line had a couple of shifts that were pretty impressive in the third period, Quenneville said.Zemgus Girgensons and Tyler Ennis scored in the first period for Buffalo, which lost 3-1 to Columbus in its season opener on Thursday night. Drew Stafford had two assists and Jhonas Enroth had 41 stops.In the third period, their star players turned it up a notch and we didnt, Sabres coach Ted Nolan said.Shaw and Kane each had a goal and an assist in the Blackhawks fifth consecutive win against the Sabres. Saad had a career-high three assists and Corey Crawford made 21 saves.I think we started really well, and we forgot to play defence, said Marian Hossa, who had a short-handed goal in the third. They just kept coming and it was a tie game. But we had more chances and more shots, and eventually we played better defensively.The game was tied at 2 when Kane one-timed a backhand pass from Shaw past Enroth at 5:58 of the third. It was the first of the season for the Buffalo native, who has five career goals against his hometown team.Chicago poured it on from there. Hossa had a short-handed score at 10:03, Patrick Sharp converted a long power-play slap shot and Daniel Carcillo tapped in a feed from Saad with 2:37 left.We just got outplayed, Ennis said. We didnt have any power plays going in the third and we were giving up tons and its not acceptable to play like that on the power plays with the man advantages.Coming off a 3-2 shootout win at Dallas in their season opener, a victory that Quenneville said they stole from the Stars, the Blackhawks jumped out to a fast start against the Sabres.Shaw tipped Niklas Hjalmarssons long shot past Enroth just 59 seconds into the game. Duncan Keith then had another long shot go off the stick of a Buffalo player and into the upper right corner for a 2-0 lead at 2:52 of the first.With the crowd of 22,012 looking for a quick knockout, Enroth settled down and the Sabres went to work on Crawford. Girgensons poked home a rebound to get Buffalo on the board, and Ennis scored on a short-handed breakaway to make it 2-2 at 18:40.Stafford set up the tying score when he intercepted a pass from Richards near the blue line and played it forward to a streaking Ennis, who skated in on Crawford for his first goal of the season. The Blackhawks went 1 for 4 on the power play.Chicago had a chance to go in front in the final seconds of the first, but Enroth made a great save on Jonathan Toews right in front of the net.Buffalo had the best opportunity in the scoreless second period. After Blackhawks defenceman David Rundblad failed to control the puck at the point, Nicolas Deslauriers got loose for a breakaway, but was stopped by Crawford, leading to chants of Co-rey! Co-rey! from the crowd.NOTES: The Flames scratched C Brian Flynn and Ds Tyson Strachan and Nikita Zadorov. ... F Kris Versteeg and Ds Kyle Cumiskey and Michal Rozsival were the scratches for the Blackhawks ... Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon received a standing ovation before he participated in the shoot the puck contest in between the second and third periods.___Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Italia .

The Grizzlies erased most of a 25-point deficit before Durant, the leagues scoring champion, got hot.Chicago Blackhawks 5, Winnipeg Jets 1 - There was plenty of hype going into this game as the Chicago Blackhawks made their first appearance at MTS Centre. And plenty of reasons for the hype - an original six team, the defending Stanley Cup champs, theyve won two of the last four league championships, local boy Jonathan Toews is the Hawks captain, and plenty of players and people with ties to one of the cities or organizations. For only the fourth time this season the Jets opened the scoring, as a Toby Enstrom (2nd) blast from the line found the back of the net. It was only the fourth time this season the Jets scored the games first goal. This game saw momentum swings, the first coming right after the goal. Brandon Bollig was called for tripping and the Jets went on the power play but within 41 seconds, it went from a Jets power play to four-on-four to a Chicago power play, as Dustin Byfuglin and Andrew Ladd were called for penalties 20 seconds apart. It was the third time this season the Jets have been two men short and officially they killed it off, but a Chicago goal came one second after the penalty to Ladd expired. A clean faceoff win by Marcus Kruger led to a blast from Niklas Hjalmarsson for his first of the year to tie the game at one. The next momentum swing was the first six minutes of the second, a swing that decided the game. Andrew Ladd and Brian Little combined for a couple of great chances in the opening seconds but could not beat Corey Crawford. The Jets aggressiveness led to an odd-man rush for Chicago with Brandon Bollig (2nd) ripping a wrist shot short side to give the Hawks the lead. One minute and 47 seconds later, Patrick Sharp got in behind the Jets defence and scored a beauty to make it 3-1. It was a goal the Jets felt really turned the game. At 5:49, a neutral zone turnover lead to a Nick Leddy shot that found the net through all sorts of traffic to make it 4-1 and end the day for Ondrej Pavelec and pretty much put the game away. Patrick Kane had a penalty shot in the third but other than that, the three calls in 41 seconds in the first were the only penalties. On the penalty shot, Kane went to the back hand and appeared to have Al Montoya beaten, only to hit the cross bar. Ben Smith scored soon after to make it a 5-1 final. The Jets spent plenty of time Thursday and Friday at practice working on defensive parts of the game. Yeezy Boost 380 Italia. . Some was just because it needed work and some was because of playing Chicago. And the Jets followed the plan in the first period. Keep the puck out of the middle of the ice, dont over attack in the Chicago end, and be careful of the transition game. The feeling from several players was that once they fell behind, the game plan was abandoned. It does not get any easier for the Jets, with Detroit in Winnipeg Monday (TSN Jets and TSN 1290) and the Jets back in Chicago Wednesday. This game started a stretch of six games in 11 days. The Jets will play 14 in 28 days in the month of November. "We had a good first period, coming out 1-0 would have been nice but we lost a face-off and they scored," is how Coach Claude Noel started his post-game news conference. "Turning point was the goal that made it 3-1. Took the win out of our sails and took the air out of the building. You could see the frustration. Turnovers hurt us. I am not going to fault Pavelec. There were breakdowns long before it got to him." Andrew Ladd led the Jets with five shots on goal. Matt Halischuk had four, as his line with Mark Scheiffele and Michael Frolik was probably the Jets best line. Jets kept Toews off the score sheet, ending his five game point streak. After scoring 10 goals in the first two games of the season, the Jets have now scored 23 in the last 13 games, not counting shootout goals. Jets record is now 3-5-1 at home and 5-7-2 on the season. Hawks are now 8-1-2 in their last 11. Jets were minus Paul Postma, Mark Stuart, Jacob Trouba and Jim Slater because of injury while Eric Tangradi was a healthy scratch. Ben Chairot made his NHL debut and along with defence partner Adam Pardy had a tough night at minus- 3. Chairot played 10:47 and had three hits. Julian Melchiori was recalled from St. Johns because of all the injuries on defence but did not play, plus the Jets picked up Keaton Ellerby off waivers from Los Angeles. He is expected at practice Sunday. Ellerby is 65, 220 and turns 25 on Tuesday. He was a Florida pick, 10th overall in the 2007, a draft pick out of Kamloops of the WHL, and was traded to the Kings last February. He has not gotten into any games this season and has 160 NHL regular season games under his belt. He appeared in five playoff games with the Kings last spring, averaging 10:43 of ice time. ' ' '
