CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks kick-started their league-leading offence by holding on to the puck -- and shutting down New Jersey defensively. Maillot Draxler Psg . Patrick Sharp scored twice and Patrick Kane, Bryan Bickell and Nick Leddy also connected to lead Chicago to a 5-2 win over the Devils on Monday night. Stephen Gionta and Michael Ryder had goals for the Devils, whose season-high four-game point streak (3-0-1) ended. New Jersey was lucky to get those two scores -- off a failed clearing attempt and a close-in turnover -- as Chicago outshot the Devils 37-12, and controlled the puck and the play. "I thought it was one of our better games all year as far as puck possession, directing plays," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "I thought we did everything we were looking to do in the game. I liked their energy, I liked their thought process, our purpose." The Blackhawks spent little time in their zone. With only a couple of exceptions, they moved the puck to their forwards efficiently and left the Devils. Sharp, who recorded his third two-goal game this season, was one of the beneficiaries. "It starts with the defence making great plays in the D-zone," he said. "Weve had great forwards here for a while that want the puck and want to score goals." The 25-year-old Kane has been better offensively this season, his seventh in the NHL. He has points in 12 straight games, matching his career high -- set earlier this season and just before his run. Kane has seven goals and 14 assists in his streak, and at least one point in all but one of his past 25 games, helping him climb into second in the NHL scoring race behind Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby. "If we can play defence like that every night, I think youre going to see more scores like that," he said. Bickells goal was his first since Nov. 10, but he missed 14 of Chicagos 19 games during that span with a knee injury. Chicago rookie Antti Raanta blocked 10 shots in his seventh straight start -- all since Blackhawks top goalie Corey Crawford suffered a lower-body injury on Dec. 8. He faced the fewest shots against Chicago in a game this season. New Jerseys Cory Schneider made 32 saves. "Theyre a relentless team," Schneider said. "They dont give up on the puck and theyre always trying to force turnovers. They didnt take their foot off the gas. "We just didnt play at the level we need to play to compete." The Blackhawks outshot the Devils 12-2 in the first period and led 1-0 after 20 minutes. Sharp opened the scoring at 12:59 when he snapped off a 40-foot shot from the left boards. New Jersey defenceman Mark Fayne reached toward the puck with his right glove, but deflected it past Schneider. One of the Devils two shots in the period was a dump-in from their own blue line while killing a penalty. Gionta tied it at 1 at 5:37 of the second on a deflection at the doorstep and the Devils fourth shot on goal. Following a failed Chicago clearing attempt on the left boards, Jon Merrill fired from the top of the slot. The puck struck the skate of Blackhawks defenceman Michael Kostka, then ticked in off Giontas stick. Kane put Chicago back ahead 2-1 just over 2 minutes later when he drove to the net and slammed in a rebound of Leddys shot. Schneider made a glove save on Leddys drive from the slot, but it dropped to the ice and Kane plowed over Devils defenceman Marek Zidlicky to score. Bickell made it 3-1 with 7:33 left in the period, connecting on a rising, screened shot from the right circle after taking a feed from Brandon Saad. Ryder swept in a backhand 59 seconds into the third to cut it 3-2 after he picked off a clearing pass by Chicago defenceman Brent Seabrook. The Devils managed to come back from a two-goal deficit against Washington on Saturday to win in overtime. The Blackhawks didnt let that happen. "Tonight we gave away way too much space and way too much opportunity to move the puck as well," Ryder said. "Were pretty stingy on defence usually, and tonight we got away from that and tonight it shows on the scoreboard." Set up by Marian Hossas stretch pass, Sharp scored his second goal on a breakaway at 5:54 to extend Chicagos lead to 4-2. He took the feed at centre ice, streaked in alone and fired a low shot under Schneiders glove. Leddys power-play goal, on a drive from the top of the circle with 7:01 left, completed the scoring. Sharp narrowly missed a hat trick, firing the puck off the post with 39 seconds left. NOTES: Crawford has resumed skating and is expected to start practicing after Christmas, according to Quenneville. ... Giontas goal was his second in four games after not scoring in his first 20 games this season. ... Devils RW and leading scorer Jaromir Jagr was held without a point for the first time in seven games. ... New Jersey RW Damien Brunner missed his second game with a lower-body injury and C Andrei Loktionov sat out his second with an illness. ... Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin, who used to work in the Blackhawks front office, attended the game. Maillot Edinson Cavani Psg . Both moves were announced Tuesday. The Titans had waived Matthews on Saturday when they promoted wide receiver Michael Preston from the practice squad. Maillot Neymar Psg . Braves reliever David Carpenter was also fined for throwing at Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson in the same game, which featured several ejections, including Colorado manager Walt Weiss.Well begin with the best hockey action figures McFarlane Toys has ever created -- and what "best of" list doesnt feature The Great One, Wayne Gretzky? No "best of" list we want any part of! The old Oilers jersey, the signature Gretzky Jofa helmet, and the attention to detail on his face all make this figure a "great one."The goaltender position is our personal favourite for the figures because we love the detail McFarlane puts in to the pads and masks. The Dominik Hasek figure is a specifically cool looking toy because hes been created in the typical stance Hasek always took before flopping and slithering around the crease.Next on the list is another goalie -- Patrick Roy himself. The positioning of Roy mid-save is really cool, along with the detail in his helmet design... although we wouldnt mind seeing a Montreal Canadiens version.Sergei Fedorov is known for his unique style of play with the Detroit Red Wings, but we tip our hats to the creative team making this toy for finding an excuse to paint the incredible Mighty Ducks of Anaheim jersey on this figure! Fedorov only played with the Mighty Ducks for two seasons, but this is magnificent.This next figure embodies everything that Alexander Ovechkin represents... just look at it!And to round out our best of, weve got Darryl Sittler rocking the old school Maple Leafs jersey with some great flow coming out the sides and back of his helmet. Hes even a beauty in action figure form!And now for the worst... the "why did you even make action figures of these players" list, starting with goaltender Dan Cloutier. In the thick of Cloutiers three impressive seasons in Vancouver, McFarlane toys decided to cash in on the goaltenders success... only to watch him fall out of favour with Canucks management after a series of injuries, a lack of playoff success, and a weak goal let in during a 2002 playoff game against the Detroit Red Wings that has seemed to define his career.We love Tie Domi, and think he is semi-deserving of an aaction figure, but this specific pose is unacceptable for a player of Domis likeness.Maillot Psg Cavani. . First of all, hes skating. Second of all, his gloves are still on. And third, his fists arent in the air waiting to fight an opponent! McFarlane really dropped the ball on this one!We would have also accepted a figure of a fan falling into the penalty box with Domi, but we digress...The inconsistency of Andrew Raycroft is something Toronto Maple Leafs fans are familiar with, who is next on our worst hockey action figure list. We can see why the figurine was made, as Raycroft was an up and coming stud in the NHL, but his career never fully panned out as he floated from team to team before heading to Europe.We hate to keep picking on former Maple Leafs goaltenders, but the player who played side-by-side with Raycroft is the next action figure choice were pondering -- Vesa Toskala. All we really need to mention is Rob Davisons attempt to clear the puck out of his defensive zone and it bouncing over Toskalas glove and into the net to justify us putting this hockey action figure on our worst of list. Does that play deserve an action figure? We think not!Patrick Lalime was a fine starting goaltender who could be argued as a star, but Joe Nieuwendyk discovered Lalimes five-hole one faithful evening and unfortunately thats the entire reason he probably didnt deserve this action figure. Maybe its fitting hes just drinking water in the figurine.And finally, at one point we would have argued Jonathan Cheechoo fully deserved a figurine made of him, but after his 56 goal season in 2005-06 his production numbers began to fall drastically. Perhaps hell make a triumphant return and prove us wrong, but we arent going to bet the house on it.All the photos used in this post were taken from the McFarlane Sports Picks Hockey page.
