Habby beats Flames again
By wire services
Published November 19, 2005
CALGARY - In his first regular-season game against it since Game 7 of the 2003-04 Stanley Cup final, Nikolai Khabibulin made 29 saves, 11 in the third, as visiting Chicago ended Calgary's eight-game win streak 5-2. He improved to 15-2-2 against them during the regular season.
The turning point might have been the first period, when Calgary emerged with just a 2-1 lead despite having four two-man advantages.
The Blackhawks were called for nine consecutive minor penalties before Mark Bell tied it at 2 on Chicago's only power play. Matt Ellison's shot was knocked down in front by Robyn Regehr, but Bell whacked the puck past Miikka Kiprusoff.
Chicago took the lead 1:24 later when Matthew Barnaby placed a perfect shot from the slot inside the post. Bell scored his second goal with 1:12 left in the second, completing a tic-tac-toe passing play with Rene Bourque and Kyle Calder.
THRASHERS 6, FLYERS 5 (OT): Greg de Vries scored 3:05 into overtime for Atlanta, which improved to 2-8-2 all-time in Philadelphia. With Branko Radivojevic off for hooking, Derian Hatcher was called for hooking with 1:58 left, giving Atlanta a six-on-three advantage after the goalie was pulled. And Peter Bondra's shot from the point made it 5-4 with 1:50 left.
Simon Gagne, who earlier scored his 18th goal, was pulled down while heading for the empty net, but no penalty was called. Moments later, Patrick Stefan tied it with seven seconds left. De Vries then gave goaltender Michael Garnett his first win by converting on a breakaway.
DEVILS 5, CANADIENS 3: Brian Gionta scored twice on the power play, including the winner, for New Jersey, who played without wing Alexander Mogilny for the third consecutive game because of a concussion. Montreal lost its first road game in regulation. Gionta, positioned just outside the crease, made it 2-0 with 4:11 left in the first by deflecting in Scott Gomez's pass. Then 7:25 into the third, Gionta knocked in a rebound of Brian Rafalski's shot for the Devils' third power-play goal.
STARS 6, BLUE JACKETS 3: Jere Lehtinen scored 9:06 into the third for his third consecutive winning goal for host Dallas. Tied at 3, Lehtinen took a pass from Niko Kapanen and snapped a one-timer from the top of the right circle.
Yzerman rips new rules
EDMONTON - Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman said he would like to see some of the old NHL back, before the new rules and crackdown on obstruction.
"Everybody keeps saying this is great. It's not great," the center, in his 22nd season, said after Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Oilers. "It's not hockey."
Yzerman said he was particularly irked by a second-period holding penalty against Mathieu Schneider. But overall, his comments were more about the quality of games than the loss.
"There are penalties all over," he said. "I'll just use Mathieu Schneider's penalty as an example. He steps up and takes his guy out, and his stick gets caught. The crowd cheers, so the referee puts his hand up. There has to be some discretion.
"Good referees used to have good judgment. Now they've taken that out of the game. I'm not saying I'm blaming the referees for it. I just feel the whole thing has to be adjusted, and they have to look at this seriously. They can't continue to call irrelevant things that have no business being called."
COYOTES-BRUINS TRADE: Phoenix got center Dave Scatchard for defenseman David Tanabe. Scatchard has 111 goals in eight seasons and four goals and six assists this season after signing a four-year deal worth more than $2-million per season. Tanabe has four assists in 21 games.
