pair of defenders during a transition

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - A two-goal first period and 32 saves from Scott Darling propelled the Chicago Blackhawks to an eighth consecutive win, a 3-2 triumph over the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Ben Smith had one of Chicagos early goals and set up the other -- the first of Klas Dahlbecks NHL career -- while Darling outplayed reigning Vezina Trophy winner Tuukka Rask in the rookies sixth career start. Patrick Kane also tallied and Marcus Kruger recorded two assists for the red-hot Blackhawks, who survived a late comeback effort from the Bruins as well as an injury to Jonathan Toews. The Chicago captain did not return after sustaining an upper-body injury near the midway mark of the second period. I think hes going to be alright, Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville said afterward. The Bruins had their captain, Zdeno Chara, back in the lineup after missing 19 straight games with a knee injury, but still fell for the fourth time in their last five outings. Rask managed just 18 saves. Darling, recalled from the minors last week with Corey Crawford sidelined by an ailing foot, came up with 14 saves during a first period in which the Blackhawks surged ahead with a pair of high-effort goals. Smith had a hand in both scores, setting up the first by fighting off a check from along the boards and sending a pass to Dahlbeck for a quick shot that got through Rask 9:10 in. He later alertly knocked a puck centered by Daniel Carcillo into an open side to give Chicago a 2-0 lead with 1:17 remaining in the opening frame. The effort was there from start to finish, but as you could see in that first period, the execution was poor, said Bruins head coach Claude Julien. Weve got to get better in those areas if we want to start winning some hockey games. Kane extended the margin with 6:41 left in the second, taking advantage of a failed clearing attempt by the Bruins to blast in a rising shot from the right of the Boston net. The Bruins were able to enter the third period with some momentum, as Reilly Smith converted an on-target behind-the-net feed from Brad Marchand 1:23 prior to the second intermission to get the home team on the board. Boston inched closer during a final period in which it dominated the action, getting within one thanks to an excellent individual effort from Milan Lucic. The physical forward bounced off a pair of defenders during a transition rush, then found a trailing Torey Krug for a blast that rifled past Darling with 7:43 left to play. The Bruins got just two more shots on goal the rest of the way, however, and werent able to generate a good scoring chance with Rask pulled in the final minutes. I was just happy we won, Darling said. There were some lucky bounces for me. The (defense) was playing great and everyone was fighting hard to keep the puck out of the net. Game Notes Darling and fellow backstop Antti Raanta have combined to allow just nine goals over Chicagos past five wins ... The Blackhawks improved to 16-3-0 when scoring first this season ... Boston had been 7-2-0 in games in which it scored in the final two minutes of a period ... Bruins forward Simon Gagne missed the game, taking a leave absence from the team earlier in the week to attend to his father, who is battling cancer, in Quebec. Geoff Cameron Jersey . Off-season additions Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley did not train with the club today, prompting Nelsen to declare its too early to tell if either will be ready for Saturday.

Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.TORONTO -- Its Week 12 in Major League Soccer and Toronto FC is 4-4-0. The Philadelphia Union, FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo have played 13 games while New York and Seattle have had 12. Toronto and the Los Angeles Galaxy, with nine games, are the only clubs in the 19-team league not to have played at least 10 matches so far. "Its very frustrating because were in a false position," said Toronto captain Steven Caldwell. "A very big if in the MLS, but if we win all our games in hand, were on top of the league. "Were not denying weve had a little bit of an up-and-down start but weve shown glimpses of real quality and weve had games weve let ourselves down. If we had played similar games to the rest of the teams, Im pretty sure wed be very near the top if not on the top. So its slightly disappointing but well get our chance to address that when we play more games than other teams. Weve just got to be ready for that. "Weve had injuries and were losing Michael (Bradley to the World Cup) for a longish period. It might be a blessing in disguise." With 12 points, Toronto is currently seventh in the East -- two points and two places out of the playoff picture. But its rate of 1.5 points a game is good for third in the conference (and fifth in the leaguee).dddddddddddd Torontos weather is part of the reason for the lack of early games. Toronto had a bye the opening weekend, for example. The Amway Canadian Championship also has not helped the calendar, taking up four midweek games. And television, no doubt, played its part in scheduling with more games saved for later on, when hockey is over. Including Friday nights game in Kansas City, Toronto has three more league games before MLS takes a two-week break in mid-June during the World Cup. When play resumes, Toronto has 23 league games remaining. In contrast, Philadelphia will have 18. For Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen, the schedule has pluses and minuses. Injured players have had a chance to heal. But a team that brought in a half-dozen starters during the off-season needs time to mesh on the field. "This team needs more games than anyone other team, to tell you the truth," said Nelsen. "Just because thats how you get to know each other. And a lot of players werent there in pre-season -- they were injured or hadnt arrived or different kind of stories. "So we kind of started our pre-season in away during the season. So we started a few steps back. The more games, the better for these guys. ... Thats what were looking forward to."
