( - The red-hot Chicago Blackhawks will try for a ninth consecutive win Saturday against the New York Islanders, but they may have to earn the road victory without the services of captain Jonathan Toews. Toews suffered an upper-body injury in the second period of Thursdays 3-2 win in Boston after going face-first into the end boards following a check from Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg. Although Toews played on the ensuing 5- on-3 power play, he left the game after that and did not return. The star forward is questionable for tonights game, as Chicago has yet to reveal the nature or severity of the injury. The 26-year-old Toews does have a history of head injuries, missing time on three separate occasions due to concussions during his career. He was able to make the trip to Long Island for tonights game. Seidenberg was whistled for a minor penalty on the play, but will not face further discipline from the NHL. A two-goal first period and 32 saves from Scott Darling propelled Chicago to Thursdays triumph in Beantown. 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 Blackhawks, who hung on for the victory after leading 3-0. Chicago is on its longest winning streak since setting a franchise record with 11 consecutive wins from Feb. 15-March, 2013. With No. 1 netminder Corey Crawford sidelined with a foot injury, Darling is expected to make a fourth straight start in net tonight. The 25-year-old has never faced the Islanders. New York enters Saturday hoping to avoid its longest skid of what has been a surprisingly successful season so far. Prior to dropping the last three games, the Islanders had won 13 of their previous 15 outings. The Isles lost three in a row from Oct. 28-Nov. 1, but havent fallen in four straight since a five-game slide from Jan. 23-31 of last season. All three setbacks on New Yorks current skid have come in regulation and the Isles have surrendered a total of 17 goals during that stretch. The Isles also have tallied 11 goals of their own during the slide, but they clearly need to shore up things in their own end to get back on the right track. Two losses in this slide have come against the Blues, including a 6-3 setback in St. Louis on Thursday. Alexander Steen had two goals and one assist to help the Blues skate away with the victory. John Tavares and Mikhail Grabovski scored in the second period for the Islanders. Former Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak allowed five goals on 32 shots. We didnt really grasp it. said Tavares. Sometimes we just have to make the plays a little quicker. New York is hoping to return to the win column tonight when it begins a stretch of four home tilts in five games. The Isles boast a 10-3-0 record at Nassau Coliseum and had won seven straight as the host before losing last Saturday against the Blues. Josh Bailey sat out Thursdays loss with a lower-body injury and the forward is questionable for the Isles tonight. Halak expects to start in net and he owns a 6-1-3 record and 2.07 goals against average in 11 career games against Chicago. The Blackhawks and Isles last met on Jan. 2 when New York halted a four-game slide in the series with an overtime win at the Coliseum. Chicago has lost four of its last five games on Long Island. Former Chicago defenseman Nick Leddy will face his old team for the first time on Saturday. Leddy was traded to the Isles right before the start of the 2014-15 season and has five goals and 14 points in 29 games for New York.

Bernie Kosar Jersey .C. -- Eric Staal kept his focus after his apparent breakaway goal was waived off early in the third period. . -- Rookie Victor Oladipo came off the bench to score 20 points and Glen Davis had 18, leading the Orlando Magic to a 112-98 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

Austin Seibert Womens Jersey . Among the teams moves was trading one of the teams two third round picks, no. 83 overall, to the Chicago Blackhawks for Brandon Bollig, a six-foot-two, 223-pound left-winger who had seven goals, seven assists, and 92 penalty minutes in 82 games last season. JEREZ, Spain -- Jenson Button steered his repaired McLaren to the fastest lap on Wednesday, and Nico Rosberg helped Mercedes rebound from Lewis Hamiltons crash with the longest run on the second day of Formula One preseason testing. Otherwise, most teams continued to struggle with their new cars following a massive rulebook overhaul that includes a shift to a turbo engine and more sophisticated energy recovery systems. Four-time defending world champion Sebastian Vettel only managed eight laps around the Jerez track before Red Bulls engine maker, Renault, reported a malfunction and the team decided to call it quits. That gave Vettel a total of 11 laps to start the preseason. "Obviously weve not had a lot of running and have a few problems to sort out, but with such big rule changes it is usual to have some teething problems. Thats what tests are for, to sort those issues out," said Vettel, who now hands the wheel to new teammate Daniel Ricciardo for the remaining two days in southern Spain. An electrical problem had kept Button in the garage on Tuesday, but he was the first out on wet tires in the morning and after the asphalt had dried he set the benchmark lap time with 1 minute, 24.165 seconds. The former world champion is aiming to help McLaren bounce back from its worst season since 1980 after it didnt reach the podium last year. Rosberg led the eight-car field with 97 laps, a day after a front wing problem sent Hamiltons Mercedes flying into the barrier. Rosberg said the new Mercedes F1 W05 has little in common with its predecessor and compared its steering wheel to a "smartphone with all the information on it." After overnight rain, the sessions 9 a..ddddddddddddm. start was delayed as a tractor worked its way around the track spraying more water on the already damp asphalt so teams could test Pirellis tires for wet surfaces. But by noon the sun had come out and the track was dry as forecasts of showers never materialized, leaving teams to run under normal conditions. All the teams are struggling to get their cars race ready in time for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on March 16. They will have two more tests in Bahrain before heading to Melbourne. So far, they have combined for 424 laps across two days of testing. Last year, with the preseason starting after far fewer tweaks to the rules governing car design, drivers combined for more than 1,500 laps over the first two days here. Ferrari appears to be handling the new regulations the best. Kimi Raikkonen followed up his fastest lap time from Tuesday with the second-fastest lap on Wednesday, 0.647 seconds behind Button. Local favourite Fernando Alonso will drive for Ferrari on Thursday and Friday. McLarens promising recovery from Tuesdays no-show coincided with its hiring of Eric Boullier as its new racing director. Boullier joins a week after leaving rival Lotus, in a restructuring at McLaren that recently included luring back former team principal Ron Dennis as its new chief executive. F1 newcomer Marcus Ericsson came to a stop in his Caterham for the days third and final red flag. Sergio Perezs Force India had spouted smoke earlier after Esteban Gutierrez ended up in the gravel in his Sauber. F1s new rules include a shift to a 1.6-litre V6 turbo engine from last years 2.4-litre V8. They also affect the cars fuel limits, weight and body design. ' ' '
