CHICAGO -- Marian Hossa skated as if he had been recharged during a five-game vacation -- not sidelined for five games with an upper-body injury. [url=https://www.wholesalejerseysaaa.com/]Wholesale Jerseys[/url] . The Blackhawks 35-year-old forward celebrated his return to the lineup with plenty of energy -- resulting in a key goal and two assists -- and Chicago defeated the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Sunday night to snap a two-game losing streak. "Its great to come back and try to help the team," Hossa said. "Its five games, so I dont know how much fresher Ill be than the other guys. But theres some benefit, maybe." Hossa was back in action for the first time in two weeks. He was knocked out in the Blackhawks 5-1 victory over Pittsburgh at Soldier Field on March 1. On Sunday, Chicago lead 2-1 after 40 minutes, then Hossa put the game away with two big plays in the third period. "He changes the look, the complexion of our line, of our team game," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "We seem to have the puck a lot more when hes out there. "He made some nice finished plays and he definitely had some nice jump to his game, as well. It made a big difference having him back tonight." Hossa used his speed to give Chicago a 3-1 lead at 6:33 of the third. After taking a feed from Patrick Sharp, Hossa raced down the right wing, cut in around Detroit defenceman Brendan Smith and beat Jimmy Howard from close range. "He was coming with so much speed, I thought he was going to try to drag me across (the crease)," Howard said. Hossas set up Jonathan Toews short-handed goal with 2:10 left that iced it. After stealing the puck from Johan Franzen near Chicagos blue line, Hossa skated down the right wing. He pulled up and then fed Toews, who cut to the net and tucked in a shot. Ben Smith had a goal and assist, and Nick Leddy also scored for defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago, which is struggling to keep up with the top contenders in the Western Conference. Despite the win, the Blackhawks are 11-8-7 in 2014 and remained fifth in the conference and third in the Central Division. Gustav Nyquist scored for the injury-depleted Red Wings, who are desperate for wins as they try to get into the playoffs for the 23rd straight time. Chicagos Corey Crawford made 19 saves and Detroits Jimmy Howard had 26. "We felt good going into the third, but obviously Hossas goal really made it a two-goal game and makes it tough for us," Detroit Daniel Alfredsson said. The banged-up Red Wings played without 10 injured players, including stars Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. Forward Todd Bertuzzi joined the list Sunday, sitting out after suffering a lower-body injury Friday against Edmonton. "Once the game got to 3-1, its not as good a spot for our team," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "We dont have enough goals in our lineup to play like that. We were set up (at 2-1) and we let it slip away." The Blackhawks faced Detroit for the second time since beating them in overtime in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series last year to complete a comeback from a 3-1 deficit. The Red Wings defeated Chicago 5-4 in a shootout on Jan. 22 at Joe Louis Arena. The Blackhawks and Red Wings were division rivals for the past 31 years until Detroit moved from the Western to Eastern Conference this season. The Original Six teams were grouped together in the Central Division for the previous 19 seasons and in the Norris Division for 12 years before that. The Blackhawks outshot the Red Wings 11-5 in the scoreless first, but neither team generated sustained pressure or many prime scoring chances. The Blackhawks turned up the pressure early in the second and outshot Detroit 14-7 in the period. Leddys power-play goal, on Chicagos 19th shot, finally opened the scoring at 8:44 of the second. Nyquist tied it at 1 with 4:50 left in the period with a power-play goal that deflected in off the skate of Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook. Smith put Chicago back in front 2-1 on a rebound with 14 seconds left in the period. Hossa then helped Chicago put the game away in the third. NOTES: Chicago F Brandon Saad didnt return for the third period after playing a total of 11 shifts. Quenneville said he had an upper-body injury and is day-to-day. ... Detroit RW Jordin Tootoo, recalled from Grand Rapids of the AHL on Saturday, filled in for Bertuzzi. ... Red Wings D Jakub Kindl was a healthy scratch. ... Before the game, Quenneville hinted that C Teuvo Teravainen, one of the Blackhawks top prospects, might join the team soon. Teravainens team in Finland, Jokerit, was eliminated from the playoffs Sunday. That paves the way for the 19-year-old forward, drafted in the first round by Chicago in 2012 (18th overall), to sign an NHL contract.

Adam Lind provided the power and rookie starter Marcus Stroman had the best start of his young career as the Blue Jays dumped the Yankees 8-3 at Rogers Centre. Stroman, making his fifth start for Toronto, allowed one earned run and three hits over a career-high eight innings.Before the 2013-14 NCAA season began, CBSSports.com listed Syracuse point guard and Toronto native Tyler Ennis at 69 on its "Top 100 Players in college hoops." Michigan guard and fellow Canadian Nik Stauskas was one ahead at 68. With 42 days before the NBA Draft in New York City, two of three analysts of the same website have Ennis getting selected in the top 10, while all three have Stauskas going in the 10-14 range. "Ive played against some of the best players in the world and Ive played against some of the best players in my class," Ennis said at the NBA Combine, which began Thursday. "I just have the confidence and I know how hard I work and I know my abilities." Played is the operative word in that sentence. For as much as the 19-year-old Ennis and 20-year-old Stauskas did to get noticed on the court, they both understand to fulfill their NBA dreams theyll have to impress potential employers off the court just as much. "People know how I play and I think the main thing for teams is to get to know me and know if they are going to draft me, what theyre going to deal with," Ennis said. "They want to see, as a nineteen-year-old coming out of college, if youre able to lead grown men in the NBA and I think they are able to get a feel for that in the interviews." The process is something all players have to go through and Stauskas is doing his best to combat the expected nerves. "The main thing for me is to just try to be myself and let teams know what kind of person I am and how I grew up and how I got to this situation right here," the Mississauga native said. Stauskass upbringing could serve him well when talking to NBA clubs. His family originally hails from the basketball-mad Lithuania. "t;Im a good person, really hard-working, and I come from a great family. [url=https://www.wholesalejerseysaaa.com/]Wholesale Jerseys 2022[/url]. I think thats important for people to know and I just want them to know that Im not doing this because I want money or anything like that," he said. "Obviously, the moneys great, but Im really doing this just because I love the game of basketball. This is whats made me happy since I was seven or eight-years-old. I feel like if teams really get that vibe from me, theyre going like that." Both Stauskas and Ennis sat out the first day of the combine. Each player was officially measured - height, weight and wingspan - but neither participated in any of the on-court drills. "Before the combine started, knowing what the drills were going to be, I felt a lot of it was just jump-shooting," Stauskas said. "Obviously, thats the strongest part of my game and I feel that teams already know I can shoot the ball, so coming in, I felt that even if I had a great day shooting the ball, it wasnt really going to do much for me because teams already know thats my strength." Both Canadians, however, will participate in physical testing and the aforementioned team meetings. And although the footage of their abilities is likely endless at this point, both players say there will be a few surprises awaiting any and all who will be watching. "Im not the one dunking all the time but Im able to jump pretty high and Im a lot faster than people think," Ennis said. "Going through the combine I think my numbers will show that its more surprising than people expect. "I dont think people realize I can jump the way I do or run the way I do," Stauskas echoed, "so Im really looking forward to tomorrow, getting in there and working." ' ' '
