Question of the Day
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jaroslav Halak shrugged off his shaky start to the season, making 29 saves as the St. Louis Blues won coach Ken Hitchcock’s debut with a 3-0 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
Chris Stewart scored on the power play to end a 10-game goal drought. Vladimir Sobotka and T.J. Oshie also scored and Barret Jackman had two assists for the Blues, whose 6-7 start cost coach Davis Payne his job.
Stewart’s deflection in the second period was only the fourth goal in 41 power-play opportunities for St. Louis, which entered as the NHL’s worst team with the man advantage.
Red Wings 5, Avalanche 2
DETROIT (AP) _ Johan Franzen scored three goals, and suddenly Detroit rolled over Colorado.
Detroit has won two straight with a combined 10 goals after scoring a total of six in a six-game skid following a 5-0 start.
Nicklas Lidstrom started the scoring midway through the first period. Franzen gave the Red Wings a three-goal lead in the second period and chased goalie Semyon Varlamov.
Dan Cleary scored off his own rebound against Jean-Sebastien Giguere to essentially seal the win with 5:14 left.
Milan Hejduk pulled the Avalanche within two goals a couple minutes later, but Franzen scored an empty-net goal with 31.3 seconds left after Giguere was pulled for an extra skater.
Gabriel Landeskog scored the only goal for the Avalanche (7-7-1), who are in a 1-5-1 slide.
Stars 5, Capitals 2
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Michael Ryder scored twice, Adam Burish had the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and Dallas beat Washington to snap the Capitals’ six-game home winning streak.
Kari Lehtonen stopped 30 shots for the Stars, who have won four straight and own the NHL’s best record (11-3).
Burish put Dallas ahead to stay at 34 seconds of the third period, and Jamie Benn and Eric Nystrom scored in a 32-second span to make it 5-2 with 11:55 left.
Trevor Daley had two assists for the Stars, giving him 100 for his career. Benn also had two assists.
