this early in the season

VANCOUVER - A night that started with a tribute to Daniel Sedin ended with the fourth line stealing the show. Jimmer Fredette Jersey .Jannik Hansen scored the first hat trick of his career and Bo Horvat and Derek Dorsett combined for five assists Sunday as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Chicago Blackawks 4-1.Radim Vrbata had the other goal and Ryan Miller made 24 saves as Vancouver (14-6-1) celebrated Sedins 1,000th NHL game with a hard-fought victory.We wanted to get the win for him. Its a measuring stick. Chicago is a very good team, said Hansen. We just dont want to be satisfied with winning a game here and there. We want to be the team that other teams are chasing.Hansen, who now has eight goals on the season and five in the last three games, snapped a 1-1 tie at 6:24 of the third, deflecting a Dorsett shot from the boards into the top corner.We strive this year to make it a four-line team. Its not a matter of one, two, three (or) four, said Hansen. Everyone knows the (Sedin) twins are going to get their matchup every night.After that its up to the nine other guys to supply the secondary scoring. As long as we can do that weve got a chance to win games.Horvat finished with the first three assists of his NHL career, while Dorsett chipped in with two of his own for Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins, who appears to have found a fourth line he can trust — something that predecessor John Tortorella could not last season.Bos been real good in the faceoff circle. They start with the puck lots of times. I think that makes a difference. They play smart. They dont complicate it, said Dejardins. Jannik had a great game going to the net and when you go to the net good things can happen.Horvat, who finished 13 for 16 on faceoffs, continued to make a strong case to stay with the Canucks instead of going back to junior.Were pretty confident as a line that we can go out there against some tough guys and some tough players, said Horvat, who played his eighth NHL game on Sunday. The more I play and the better I play, the harder the decision is going to be on them. Hopefully Im making it tough.Horvat beat Jonathan Toews, a player he tried to emulate as a youngster, on one of those draws in the moments leading up to Hansens winner.Believe it or not thats my idol, Horvat said with a smile. Thats the guy I wanted to model my game after and thats the guy I watched growing up playing in the NHL. To take a faceoff against him a couple times and to be on the same sheet of ice as him, its pretty cool.Dorsett said the 19-year-old centre who scored his first goal in Thursdays shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks has impressed as he approaches the critical ninth NHL game for junior-age players trying to stick.The way (Horvat) carries himself on and off the ice is like hes a 10-year vet, said Dorsett. Hes a nice kid, he wants to learn and thats all you can ask for.Id be happy to play with him the rest of the year.Kris Versteeg had the only goal for Chicago (12-8-1), which got 26 saves from Cory Crawford.They played well, they played hard, said Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, whose team came in having given up a league-low eight goals in the third period. They had a real purpose to the way they played.Chicago had a power play with about eight minutes left in the third, but Vancouvers penalty kill was up to the task. The Blackhawks, playing their second of a back-to-back and third game in four nights, pressed for the tie late, but were caught out on a rush when Vrbata scored his 10th of the season at 17:36.We rolled four lines, we were fresh, we did all the little things that we had to do be successful and everyones buying in, said Daniel Sedin, who was honoured in a pre-game ceremony. Thats a lot of fun when you can do that. No one feels the pressure to score each and every game, but everyone knows they can do it. Its a great feeling.Hansen, who had 11 goals all of last season, then won a race for the puck and scored into an empty net with 42 seconds left to add the exclamation point.Its been a while. I think it was back when I was playing in Denmark, Hansen said of the last time he recorded a hat trick. Its extremely nice to get it (but) its not one of those things I have on my bucket list.The Blackhawks came in having won three straight — including Saturdays 7-1 thrashing of the Edmonton Oilers — and five of their last six, but were down 1-0 after the first period before starting to impose their will as the second wore on.Versteeg, who came in with two goals and four assists in his last three games, scored his seventh of the season to tie things at 7:55 on the power play, deflecting home a point shot from Duncan Keith.The Canucks had a great chance to restore the lead on a man advantage of their own later in the period, but Crawford robbed Henrik Sedin with the heel of his skate.Theyve had a good start to the season, said Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane. It seems like a lot of their guys are re-energized, motivated, they get good goaltending and theyve had solid contributions from everyone. You look at their so-called third or fourth line tonight and they had three goals.Vancouver opened the scoring at 13:13 of the first on the power play when Dorsetts pass glanced off Horvats stick right to Hansen, who scored over Crawfords blocker.Confidence is a funny thing, said Hansen. Once the puck goes in you feel like every shot you take might have a chance.Notes: Henrik Sedin played his 1,000th game with Vancouver in March. ... Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis sat out with a lower-body injury after getting hurt on Thursday. ... Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury. ... The Canucks host Cory Schneider and the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday before starting a season-high seven-game road trip in Columbus against the Blue Jackets on Friday. ... The Blackhawks continue their six-game road trip on Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche. Tyreke Evans Jersey . Since coming to the big leagues in late May, La Stella is 6 for 7 with the bases loaded, driving in 13 runs in those at-bats. Jrue Holiday Jersey .com) - The Winnipeg Jets got over one hurdle by snapping their longest losing streak of the season.DETROIT -- Chris Sale figures his arm injury could have been a lot worse. The Chicago White Sox believe Sale has a strained muscle in his throwing arm, and the ace left-hander was officially put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. There does not appear to be any ligament damage. "Yesterday was as good a news as we could have possibly gotten," Sale said Tuesday. "I think just with kind of the way spring training and the year has unfolded for a lot of pitchers, maybe I (was) a little bit more nervous, just because you dont know." Matt Moore, Kris Medlen, Patrick Corbin and David Hernandez are among the pitchers who have been dealing with significant elbow problems this year, and Sale doesnt appear to be joining that hard-luck group after undergoing an MRI. "First words out of the doctors mouth was, The UCL looks excellent," Sale said. "I heard UCL was excellent, and I walked out. Its about all I needed to hear." Sale said this is similar to an issue he dealt with in 2012, and he "absolutely" expects to be back once hes eligible to come off the DL. The move is retroactive to last Friday. The White Sox recalled left-hander Charlie Leesman from Triple-A Charlotte to start in Sales place against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Chicago also assigned right-hander Frank Francisco tto Charlotte after a stint at extended spring training. Terrence Jones Pelicans Jersey. He signed a minor league deal April 14. The White Sox have already been dealing with their share of injuries this year. Outfielder Adam Eaton is day to day with a left hamstring strain, and infielder Conor Gillaspie was out of the starting lineup Tuesday with what he described as a minor issue with his left hand. Second baseman Gordon Beckham is out with a strained left oblique, reliever Nate Jones has a strained left hip, and outfielder Avisail Garcia was lost for the season with a torn labrum. So the White Sox can deal with Sales injury if its a relatively minor one. "Youre always concerned when somebody says theyre feeling something different than they normally do," manager Robin Ventura said. "Theres just a relief thats there, and you can tell by the way hes walking around today and talking, he feels pretty good." The 25-year-old Sale is 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA on the season. He threw 127 pitches in a loss to Boston on Thursday, but he wasnt about to put too much blame on that for his injury. "Obviously, this early in the season, it could have something to do with it, but I dont put too much emphasis on pitch count," Sale said. "Whos to say if Id have thrown 18 less pitches that it would have been any better?"
