Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Pa­trick Kane had a goal and an as­sist, and the Chicago Black­hawks hung on to beat the Ana­heim Ducks 3-2 for their fifth con­sec­u­tive win in the clubs’ Black Fri­day ri­valry game. Artem Anisi­mov and Ryan Hart­man also scored as the Black­hawks snapped their two-game skid even with­out cap­tain Jonathan Toews. He missed his first game of the sea­son due to an up­per-body in­jury. Corey Crawford made 34 saves for the Western Con­fer­ence lead­ers. They have won five straight reg­u­lar-sea­son games in Ana­heim since March 2013. Nick Ritchie and Jakob Sil­fver­berg scored and John Gib­son stopped 22 shots for the Ducks. They wrapped up a five-game home­s­tand on a three-game skid. The Ducks fell to 4-4-2 against the Black­hawks on Black Fri­day. They haven’t won this ri­valry game since 2009.


Pa­trick Mar­leau scored with 22.5 sec­onds left and San Jose re­bounded af­ter al­low­ing the ty­ing goal to New York in the clos­ing minute. Nick Leddy had tied it for New York with a one-timer off a feed from John Tavares with 57.1 sec­onds left but the Sharks bounced back quickly. Brent Burns took a shot from the point that Mar­leau de­flected in the slot past Thomas Greiss for the win­ner that helped San Jose im­prove to 7-2 at home this sea­son. Joe Pavel­ski and Brent Burns scored 34 sec­onds apart in the sec­ond pe­riod and backup Aaron Dell made 26 saves for the Sharks. Dell has earned both of his wins this sea­son against the Is­lan­ders An­ders Lee also scored for New York, and Greiss made 25 saves.


De­fense­man Mike Green scored from the right cir­cle at 3:18 of over­time and Detroit handed New Jersey a rare home loss. Frans Nielsen added two goals, and Dy­lan Larkin and An­thony Man­tha scored one apiece as the Red Wings won their sec­ond straight de­spite los­ing goalie Jimmy Howard to a lower-body in­jury in the first pe­riod. Petr Mrazek fin­ished and al­lowed three goals in re­lief. John Moore, Mike Cam­mal­leri, Pavel Zacha and Adam Hen­rique scored for the Devils. They are 7-0-2 at home.


Char­lie Coyle scored twice in the first pe­riod to set the tone as Min­nesota matched its sea­son high for goals, and Nino Nieder­re­iter had two of the Wild’s three goals on the power play on their way to the vic­tory over Pitts­burgh. Zach Parise also scored with the man ad­van­tage and Mikael Gran­lund added a goal to build 5-1 lead by the sec­ond in­ter­mis­sion. Pen­guins goalie Mar­cAn­dre Fleury’s ca­reer record against the Wild fell to 2-7, with 30 goals al­lowed in those nine all­time matchups. Phil Kes­sel and Bryan Rust had goals for the Pen­guins.


Esa Lin­dell scored his first NHL goal and had an as­sist to help Dal­las beat Van­cou­ver. Play­ing in his 17th game for Dal­las, Lin­dell at first was Chicago St. Louis Min­nesota Nashville Dal­las Win­nipeg Colorado
