Saad, Kane, Toews Lead Blackhawks To 5-1 Win Over Blue Jackets

CHICAGO (AP) — Brandon Saad, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and assist to lead the Chicago Blackhawks over the Columbus Blue Jackets, 5-1, on Saturday night. Richard Panik also scored and Jan Rutta got his first NHL goal as Chicago followed up on a season-opening 10-1 rout of Pittsburgh with another solid performance. Sonny Milano scored for the Blue Jackets, who blanked the New York Islanders 5-0 in their opener Friday in Columbus. Corey Crawford made 32 saves for Chicago, while Joonas Korpisalo blocked 24 shots. Chicago center Nick Schmaltz was hit hard by two defensemen as Kane scored the opening goal 1:33 in. He later left the game with with an undisclosed injury. Schmaltz tried to return with a short shift midway through the first period. Saad, one of four players to open the season with a hat trick this week, has four goals and an assist in his first two games. Kane boosted his totals to two goals and four assists. Columbus forward Artemi Panarin, a centerpiece in an offseason trade that sent Saad back to Chicago, got a loud ovation during a first-period video tribute. The Blackhawks jumped ahead 2-0 with a dominant first period. Kane scored on the Blackhawks’ first shot when he was left open at the low edge of the right circle. He beat Korpisalo with a quick shot into the upper-right corner. Jack Johnson and Gabriel Carlsson leveled Schmaltz on the left side of the crease during the play. Schmaltz took a minute to get up, then skated slowly to the bench with help from trainer Mike Gapski. Saad made it 2-0 at 6:04 with a power-play goal when he converted a rebound from a goalmouth scrum. Chicago extended its lead to 4-1 after 40 minutes. Set up by Saad, Toews one-timed in his first goal this season from the left circle at 10:14 of the second. The play was set up when Panik knocked Seth Jones off the puck behind the Columbus net. Milano cut it to 3-1 31 seconds later when he poked in Nick Foligno’s feed that slid along the goal line behind Crawford. Rutta pinched in to the right circle and scored on a shot that deflected in off Korpisalo’s glove at 12:51 of the second to make it 4-1. Saad narrowly missed connecting again during a power-play midway through the third. His close-in shot trickled through Korpisalo, but Johnson swept the puck from the goal line. Panik completed the scoring with 5:55 left when he whipped in a loose puck after a faceoff. NOTES: NBC and Blackhawks TV analyst Eddie Olczyk visited the United Center press box after having surgery for colon cancer 11 weeks ago. Some in the crowd of 21,264, chanted “Eddie, Eddie” when a live shot of Olczyk, who played 16 seasons in the NHL, was shown on the scoreboard. … Schmaltz had hobbled off the ice in the third period of Thursday’s game, but was back on a line with Kane and Ryan Hartman for his first shift Saturday before being injured again. … RW Tommy Wingels made his Blackhawks debut as C Tanner Kero sat out. Wingels, who signed a one-year free agent deal, is from Chicago’s north suburbs. … The Blackhawks had a pregame video tribute and moment of silence for Pierre Pilote, their captain from 1961 to 1968, who died last month at age 85.

Levine: Cubs Stay Even-Keeled After Bullpen Meltdown Changes Complexion Of Series

By Bruce Levine– WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS) — In the aftermath of disaster, they were standing in front of their lockers in the visiting clubhouse at Nationals Park on Saturday when the media was allowed in. Cubs relievers Carl Edwards Jr. and Mike Montgomery failed to get the job done in a 6-3 loss to the Nationals in Game 2 of a National League Division Series that’s now tied 1-1 as it heads back to Chicago for Game 3 on Monday. Five outs from taking a commanding series lead, the Cubs watched as Edwards allowed a game-tying two-run homer to Bryce Harper and Montgomery followed three batters later by serving up a three-run blast to Ryan Zimmerman in the Nationals’ five-run eighth inning. Edwards and Montgomery kept a focused, even-keeled outlook. Edwards took responsibility for hanging curveball on a 3-1 count that Harper drilled about as far as a human can hit a ball. Harper had been 1-of-7 in the series before the at-bat. “That was the right pitch,” Edwards said. “I just hung it. When you hang it, it gets banged. It was certainly the right pitch selection and as I said, I hung it. At that moment, I really couldn’t do anything once it left my hand. As soon as I left it up, I was thinking it wasn’t coming down anytime soon.” Cubs manager Joe Maddon had chosen to keep the right-handed Edwards in against the lefty-swinging Harper because Edwards has quality reverse splits, allowing lefties to hit just .119 with a .437 OPS in the regular season. Maddon called using Edwards the “right call” and also curiously added he was “the only option” in the situation. “Bryce got him,” Maddon said. After Edwards walked Anthony Rendon, Maddon called upon the left-handed Montgomery to face the lefty-swinging Daniel Murphy, who promptly singled. Maddon then chose to stay with Montgomery instead of turning to star closer Wade Davis or another right-hander. Montgomery had held righties to a .215 batting average and .632 OPS. Davis held righties to a .211 batting average and .690 OPS. Montgomery’s pitch caught too much of the plate, and Zimmerman’s homer landed just inches over the left-field wall. Just like that, in a span of six batters, the complexion of the series changed. “Hey, they are a good offense,” Montgomery said. “We have to do a better job of executing pitches. Really, that is about it.” There were no Cubs players hanging their heads or hiding from reporters in the aftermath of a gut-wrenching defeat. What was on display was a group that still has a total belief in themselves. “A big part of it is you have to know how to lose,” Montgomery said. “You cannot let one loss affect the rest of the series. I think we are good at understanding that. It was a frustrating loss. You have to brush it off and get back out there on Monday playing good baseball, just like we have been playing.” Bruce Levine covers the Cubs and White Sox for 670 The Score and Follow him on Twitter @MLBBruceLevine.

Official Says Note In Room Of Las Vegas Shooter Aided Shooting Precision

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Latest on the mass shooting in Las Vegas (all times local): 5 p.m. A law enforcement official says investigators believe a note found in the Las Vegas shooter’s hotel room contained a series of numbers that helped him calculate more precise shots. The official says Saturday that the numbers found on a note on a nightstand included the distance between the high-rise hotel room that Stephen Paddock was using as a perch and the concert the victims were attending. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the details of the ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Investigators are still trying to determine why Paddock committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. He killed 58 people and wounded hundreds of others last Sunday before taking his own life. — By Associated Press writer Michael Balsamo
1:30 p.m. Vice President Mike Pence says in the depths of horror, Americans have found hope in those who risked their lives after the Las Vegas shooting. Pence spoke Saturday afternoon at a prayer service in Las Vegas honoring the 58 victims killed last Sunday in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Pence says those killed were taken before their time. But he says, “Their names and their stories will forever be etched into the hearts of the American people.” Fifty-eight doves were released outside on the steps of City Hall. They flew in a wide arc before disappearing into the distance as someone shouted, “God bless America!” Investigators are still trying to figure out what led gunman Stephen Paddock to carry out the attack.
12:30 p.m. The family of a California man killed in the Las Vegas shooting is asking a judge to appoint a special administrator to take control of the gunman’s assets. Attorneys for the family of 56-year-old John Phippen filed the petition in Clark County, Nevada, on Friday. The court filing asks a judge to appoint the county’s public administrator to take control of gunman Stephen Paddock’s estate. The petition says that’s a necessary step to allow lawsuits to be brought against Paddock’s estate. Phippen was one of 58 victims killed when Paddock opened fire from his high-rise hotel suite last Sunday. Hundreds of others were injured before Paddock took his own life. Friends have said the father of six from Santa Clarita, California, was always willing to lend an ear — or a cold beer — to a friend in need.
10:30 a.m. Federal agents are starting to haul away thousands of personal items left behind when a gunman opened fire on a Las Vegas concert, killing 58 people and injuring nearly 500 others. FBI agents were seen Saturday morning hauling baby strollers, lawn chairs, backpacks and purses onto dollies and into the back of a white truck. Law enforcement officers had fanned out across the crime scene throughout the week, stacking up belongings of concert-goers into more than a dozen large piles. Authorities have said they plan to return the belongings to people in the next week. An estimated 22,000 people attended the Route 91 Harvest festival on Sunday when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from his high-rise hotel suite.
12 a.m. Tourists coming to Las Vegas may soon encounter something darker than the dazzling lights that typically welcome them to the city. Billboards will serve as a stark reminder that investigators remain stumped about what drove a gunman to mow down concertgoers from a perch in a high-rise casino hotel last Sunday. Police who have yet to find Stephen Paddock’s motive for the massacre said Friday that they will enlist the public’s help. The FBI’s Aaron Rouse says billboards will ask people with credible information to call the agency. The number will be 800-CALL-FBI. Paddock left behind little clues about what led him to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. He killed 58 and wounded nearly 500 before killing himself.
