Jonathan Toews Has Goal, Two Assists In 4-2 Win For Blackhawks Over Wild

Jonathan Toews had a goal and two assists, as the reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks held on for a 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild at the Xcel Energy Center.

Patrick Sharp tallied a goal and an assist for the Blackhawks, who have won five straight and are now 7-1-2 in their last 10 contests as they make a final push for a playoff spot in a crowded Western Conference. With the win, Chicago has 74 points and sits in sixth place.

Tomas Kopecky and Marian Hossa also lit the lamp, while Corey Crawford turned away 24-of-26 shots to pick up the win.

Martin Havlat notched a goal and a helper, while Brent Burns also scored for Minnesota, which has dropped five of eight. Niklas Backstrom allowed four goals on 34 shots.


Blackhawks' Jordan Hendry Out For Season With Knee Injury

Blackhawks defenseman Jordan Hendry, no relation to Cubs general manager Jim Hendry, had to be helped off the ice last night with an apparent knee injury.

Today, the team issued a statement indicating that Hendry will miss the rest of this season with that injury. From Blackhawks team physician Dr. Michael Terry:

“Jordan injured his left knee last night during a collision into the boards and has sustained an ACL tear. He will undergo reconstructive surgery shortly and we anticipate a full recovery in approximately six months.”

Best wishes to Jordan for a full recovery and a return to the ice next year.


Chicago Blackhawks Vs. Minnesota Wild: Blackhawks Trade Potulny To Senators

The Blackhawks have won five of their last six games and hope to extend that nice little streak when they face the Wild in Minnesota tonight.

In advance of the game, and just before today's 2 p.m. CST NHL trade deadline, the Blackhawks sent Ryan Potulny and a second-round draft pick to the Ottawa Senators for defenseman Chris Campoli and a conditional seventh-round pick, all of this according to tweets from Jesse Rogers of ESPN 1000, and confirmed at Canadian sports network TSN's TradeCenter.

Campoli, 26, is in his sixth NHL season; he began with the New York Islanders and was traded to the Senators at the trade deadline two years ago. In 58 games this year he has 11 goals, 14 assists and 34 penalty minutes. General Manager Stan Bowman was supposedly looking for defensive help; hopefully, this will give the Blackhawks that help.

This is the fourth and final meeting between the Blackhawks and Wild during the regular season; the Hawks have won two of the first three showdowns, including a 3-1 victory on Feb. 16 at the United Center.

Tonight's game begins at 7 p.m. CST -- no local TV, it's on Versus.
