  • Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork. Jets Womens Jerseys .com) - Patrick Kanes late power-play goal led the Chicago Blackhawks to a hard-fought 5-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. Brent Seabrook and Ben Smith each had a goal and an assist, Jonathan Toews lit the lamp and added two helpers and Marian Hossa also scored for the Blackhawks, who have won 10 of their last 11 games. Antti Raanta made 26 saves in the first meeting between the two clubs since Chicago eliminated Minnesota with a 4-2 series win in the Western Conference Semifinals. Nino Niederreiter scored on a penalty shot, while Marco Scandella and Thomas Vanek also posted goals for the Wild, who have dropped two of their last three.

Kane sent the puck towards the slot, but it deflected off a Wild defender and into the net with 3:28 to play. Smith sealed the win with an empty-net marker with 14 seconds remaining. The visitors were behind 3-1 when Niederreiter was tripped on a breakaway by Hossa and was awarded a penalty shot 7:13 into the third.

Scandellas right point shot deflected off a Blackhawks defenders stick and past a screened Raanta for a tied game midway through the final stanza. Mikael Granlund skated behind the net and dished a pass to Vanek, who one- timed the puck over the blocker of Raanta for a 1-0 lead with 7:11 remaining in the first period.

This time, he had something to show for it. Tillman outpitched Justin Verlander while working into the ninth inning, helping the Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 3-1 Sunday to avoid getting swept. "Some guys see Verlander in the opposite slot and they shy away," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "Tillman takes that as a challenge." Tillman (1-0) gave up five hits, including Torii Hunters solo homer in the fourth. The right-hander was thankful to match a career-high 8 1-3 innings after missing some spots he was targeting. "I know I got away with a couple of pitches," Tillman said. "I tried to go down and away, but I missed up." Tommy Hunter replaced Tillman with one out in the ninth and Victor Martinez on second base and retired the last two batters for his second save. When Baltimore opened with a 2-1 win against Baltimore, Tillman allowed one run over five innings and didnt factor in the decision. Baltimore, which had lost four straight since beating the Red Sox, handed baseballs last undefeated team its first setback of the season. The Orioles had shortstop J.J. Hardy in the lineup, but scratched him because he had back spasms during batting practice. "Frankly, its not much better now," Showalter said. Before the game, Showalter said Verlander has become better because hes more of a pitcher and less of a hard-throwing righty that he used to be. Verlander (0-1) gave up two runs on five hits and two walks over eight innings. He struck out three, moving past Tommy Bridges and into fourth place on the franchises all-time list with 1,674 in his career, but isnt pleased with that part of facet of his game after fanning just two in his first sttart. Cheap Jets Jerseys. "You get a feel for strikeouts and my feel for those isnt there yet," Verlander said. "Im not executing as well as I should or maybe over-trying a little bit with two strikes and hanging stuff." Adam Jones drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth with a sacrifice fly after Nick Markakis tripled. Baseballs replay system was temporarily unavailable early in the game for the Tigers. Both managers were informed of the technical difficulty during the first inning and it was repaired after a half-inning, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. Tillman had more strikeouts (five) than the Tigers had hits (four) against him through eight innings. After Tillman got Cabrera to ground out for the first out in the ninth, he gave up a double to Martinez that brought the fans to their feet. Hunter then struck out Austin Jackson for the second out of the inning and got Tyler Collins to bounce out for the last one. Torii Hunter homered for the third straight game -- for the first time since 2006 -- to make it 1-0 Tigers. Baltimore tied it at 1 in the sixth inning when Nelson Cruz doubled home Jones, who also hit a double. The Orioles went ahead 3-1 in the ninth after Al Alburquerque replaced Verlander and allowed Matt Wieters to homer. The Tigers scored 17 runs and had 30 hits in the previous two wins against Baltimore, but were kept quiet at the plate in the series finale. "Bats cooled a little bit, but I think that had more to do with Tillman than anything else," Ausmus said after his first loss. NOTES: Orioles stay on the road to play the New York Yankees on Monday afternoon. ... Ausmus was the first to begin his career with four straight win since Clint Hurdle of Colorado and Jerry Royster of Milwaukee both did it in 2002. Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys ' ' '
