Blackhawks move closer to division title

PITTSBURGH (AP) Patrick Kane darted behind the Pittsburgh Penguins net, seemingly intent on trying to bend a wraparound past Marc-Andre Fleury.

Halfway there, the Chicago Blackhawks star changed his mind, instead flipping a backhand pass to Artemi Panarin at the left post. Panarin flicked the puck off an unsuspecting Fleury - caught looking the other way - and into the net.

Seems nobody can see the Blackhawks coming these days. Not even the defending Stanley Cup champions.


Caps win, close in on Presidents' Trophy

DENVER (AP) The Washington Capitals weren't at their best Wednesday night. They still had plenty to beat the worst team in the NHL.

Marcus Johansson and Evgeny Kuznetsov each had a goal and an assist, Jay Beagle and John Carlson also scored and Washington kept rolling with a 5-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night.

Tarasenko, Patrik Berglund and David Perron scored, Berglund added an assist and the Blues beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Wednesday night.


Iginla helps Kings fight past Flames

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Jarome Iginla wheeled around center ice, fist bumped Flames mascot Harvey the Hound and grinned through what may be his final ovation as a player at the Saddledome.

If this season is it for Iginla, the longtime Calgary star said a fitting goodbye in a bruising game.


Wild F Parise likely out 1 week

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise will likely miss the next three games with bruising and swelling around his eye from a high stick to the face that led to blows to the head as he fell.

Parise was struck Tuesday by Washington's Tom Wilson before he crashed into the knee of another opponent, Jay Beagle, and then slammed onto the ice. Parise needed assistance getting to the locker room and didn't return, causing plenty of concern for the team.


Teams' expansion draft lists made public

NEW YORK (AP) After further consideration, the NHL will release teams' protected and available lists to the public before the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion draft in June.

The league announced the decision on Twitter on Wednesday despite NHL general managers expressing a desire to keep the lists private. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said there was more internal discussion at the league office and that none of the GMs expressed strong views on the subject.


Red Wings' playoff run ends at 25 years

DETROIT (AP) Ken Holland swiveled away from a visitor in his office at Joe Louis Arena, picked up a thick book and plopped it onto his desk.

"This collective bargaining agreement was put in place for parity and competitive balance," the Detroit Red Wings general manager said. "The CBA gave us the salary cap, and that has made it even harder to win and get into the playoffs."


Kings, Canucks to play in China in Sept.

BEIJING (AP) The NHL will play its first games in China this fall when the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks meet in Beijing and Shanghai.

The preseason games will take place Sept. 21 in Shanghai and Sept. 23 in Beijing. Commissioner Gary Bettman announced the launch of the NHL China Games at a news conference Thursday morning at Le Sports Center.


Ducks beat Canucks, clinch playoff spot

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Minus their captain and leading scorer, the Anaheim Ducks didn't miss a beat.

Corey Perry and Patrick Eaves scored 74 seconds apart early in the first period, and the playoff-bound Ducks cruised past the listless Vancouver Canucks 4-1 on Tuesday night to extend their season-high winning streak to five games.


Sharks snap slide, headed to playoffs

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) After six straight losses, the San Jose Sharks were looking for any kind of win. A well-played game that featured a late comeback and dramatic winner only made them feel even better.

Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 3:10 into overtime and the Sharks snapped their longest skid in six years on the night they clinched a playoff berth, rallying past the New York Rangers 5-4 on Tuesday.
