Kane, Toews lift Blackhawks to 2-1 win over Sabres
Question of the Day
Buffalo’s power play went 0-for-5 on Sunday, and is 0-for-10 over its past four games.
“What do we take out of that one?” Ennis said. “One: Jhony’s playing great. Two: We’ve got to stay out of the box. And, three: Our power play’s got to be better.”
Enroth stopped 29 shots and had little chance on either of the two goals he gave up.
With the game tied at 1 and the Sabres mounting a threat in Chicago’s end to open the third period, Toews answered by capping a 3-on-2 rush the other way. Andrew Shaw crossed Buffalo’s blue line and found Brandon Saad breaking up the right wing. Saad drew Enroth his way before steering a pass through the crease to Toews, who then snapped it in the open side.
It was Toews‘ 25th goal of the season and sixth in four games.
Toews has shown little sign of a post-Olympic hangover after he helped Canada win a gold medal at Sochi.
“I think he’s returned from the Olympics in great shape, very confident,” Quenneville said. “He just seems to have the knack, has good pace with it, has the puck a lot as well. And when he’s around the net, he’s getting rewarded.”
NOTES: Kane was the last Chicago player off the ice following pregame warmups and got a big cheer after flipping a puck into a large crowd of Blackhawks jersey-wearing fans behind the team’s bench. … Sabres C Conacher made his debut with Buffalo since being claimed Wednesday, a day after being waived by Ottawa. Conacher played college at Buffalo’s Canisius and is from nearby Burlington, Ontario. … The Sabres suspended D Rostislav Klesla for failing to report to the team’s AHL affiliate in Rochester. Acquired in a trade with Washington on Wednesday, Klesla told Canadian broadcaster TSN that he intended to not finish the NHL season, and instead planned to continue his career in Europe.
