(SportsNetwork. Corey Moore Jersey .com) - The Ottawa Senators will try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they face the Chicago Blackhawks who are trying to secure their place in the post-season. You can listen to the game live on TSN 1200 in Ottawa at 7:30pm et. The Senators have lost four of their last six at home versus the Blackhawks and a late-season fade has just about knocked them out of the playoff race. They snapped a six-game slide with Mondays shootout win over Tampa Bay, but lost a 3-2 shootout to the Florida Panthers the following night. Ottawa has gone 2-6-3 in its last 11 and sits eight points back of four teams tied for the two wild card berths in the Eastern Conference. On Tuesday, Vincent Trocheck and Brandon Pirri beat Ottawas Robin Lehner in the shootout. After Turris rattled a goal off the post and in, Jason Spezza fired wide on Ottawas second chance and Floridas Roberto Luongo ended the game with a glove save on Michaleks backhand as he did a split in the crease. Lehner had 39 saves for the Senators, who begin a five-game homestand tonight. "It is what it is," Lehner said of the loss. "We lost that one but I thought it was a good effort." Anderson may get the start tonight and it would be his first since March 10, when he suffered an upper-body injury. He is 4-1-2 with a 3.43 GAA lifetime versus the Blackhawks. Bobby Ryan, who leads Ottawa with 23 goals, missed his second game with a lower-body injury and will miss the rest of the regular season due to surgery to correct a sports hernia. Ryan was acquired in a trade with Anaheim on the same day long-time Sens skater Daniel Alfredsson signed with the Detroit Red Wings. He finished his first season in Ottawa with 48 points in 70 games. The Blackhawks went into Thursday nights game versus the hosting Boston Bruins needing just one point to clinch a playoff spot, but were blanked 3-0 in their first trip to TD Garden since winning the Cup last June. Corey Crawford stopped 20 shots for the Blackhawks, who had won three of their previous four but were shut out for the second time in three games. A struggling power play didnt help. Chicago went 0-for-2 on the man advantage and has gone 0-for-20 in its last seven on the road. "Were looking to get one more win," Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville said. Chicago played a fourth straight game without winger Patrick Kane due to a lower-body injury and fellow forward Bryan Bickell also sat out his fourth in a row because of an upper-body issue. Still, the Blackhawks sit second in the Central Division, one point ahead of the Colorado Avalanche but 14 up on the fourth-place Minnesota Wild. It is unknown if Crawford will start on back-to-back nights or if rookie backup Antti Raanta will face the Senators for the first time. Crawford is 2-0-0 with a 1.92 goals against average in his career against Ottawa, picking up a victory in relief on Oct. 29. He yielded one goal on 15 shots in spelling Nikolai Khabibulin as the Blackhawks rallied for a 6-5 win. Jonathan Toews scored twice in the third period to notch a hat trick as the Blackhawks beat the Senators for a third straight meeting and for the sixth time in the last seven encounters. Ottawa saw Craig Anderson allow six goals on 40 shots, while Kyle Turris and Milan Michalek both had a goal and an assist. Whitney Mercilus Jersey . Chris Heisey followed with a two-run triple and Billy Hamilton added an RBI double, all but sealing Cincinnatis fourth straight victory and seventh in eight games. Brandon Phillips, celebrating his 33rd birthday, hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth for the Reds before pinch-hitter Buster Posey tied it with an RBI double off hard-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom half. Deshaun Watson Jersey . Louis Cardinals are one of Major League Baseballs model franchises. MILWAUKEE -- As conditioning tests go, this might have been a little bit more than Tyson Chandler was expecting in his first game back. A double-overtime victory made the extra effort worthwhile. Chandler played 36-plus minutes in his return from injury, J.R. Smith hit a go-ahead jumper in the second overtime and the New York Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 107-101 on Wednesday night. Chandler cramped up at the end of the game, earning him an apology of sorts from Knicks coach Mike Woodson. "Its a sign of not being out on the floor and running," Woodson said. "I apologized to him -- but hell, I needed him." Chandler didnt mind at all. "I was willing to do whatever it took to get a win," Chandler said. "I told coach, dont put me on a minute restriction. Whatever you feel like you need or whenever you need me out there, just keep me out there." Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points and Beno Udrih added a season-high 21 for the Knicks. Smith had 19 points. Anthony had the biggest workload of all, playing 55-plus minutes. "We were right there and it kept going back-and-forth so we needed everybody to step up," Woodson said. "I just didnt have time to rest him. Thats how its probably going to have to be for right now." Chandler, who had been out since Nov. 5 with a non-displaced fracture of his right fibula, had nine points and nine rebounds. "Tyson came back strong," Anthony said. "Just his presence out there. His awareness out there on the court, how to be aggressive, knowing when to be aggressive, when not to -- his comeback was big for us." Brandon Knight scored a career-high 36 for the Bucks, who have lost four straight. John Henson had 20 points and 14 rebounds while Khris Middleton added 20 points. Bucks coach Larry Drew praised Knights scoring ability, but noted that he only had three assists -- and the Bucks only had 13 as a team. "Were going to have to be better, and hes going to have to be better, at distributing the basketball," Drew said. Simply getting through a double-overtime game was a challenge for Drew, who had only eight healthy players. "Its challenging,"; Drew said. Alfred Blue Jersey. "I know a couple of our guys were gasping for air over there. But it certainly is an opportunity to see what theyre made of." New York took a 99-98 lead on a jumper by Smith with 3:07 left in the second overtime. Anthony then hit a pair of free throws for a three-point lead with 1:32 left. Knight missed a three-point attempt, giving the ball back to the Knicks, and Anthony hit a 3-pointer with 50.1 seconds left to put the game away. Points were hard to come by late in the fourth quarter and in both overtimes, but both teams had chances. The Bucks had a shot at the win with 19.2 seconds remaining in regulation but Henson and Middleton both missed, sending the game into overtime. Drew made no secret of his annoyance with Henson deciding to take a long jumper, saying, "That was not the shot. Ill just leave it at that." With the Knicks holding a two-point lead with 33.3 seconds left in the first overtime, Anthony missed a shot, Chandler grabbed the rebound and Andrea Bargnani missed, giving the ball back to the Bucks. Henson then tipped in a wild Knight miss, tying the game with 0.3 of a second left and sending it into double overtime. Bargnanis miss was a head-scratcher for Woodson. "I dont know if he thought we were down," Woodson said. "This is a game of inches and obviously he had something else going through his mind at the time." Chandlers return was a boost for a Knicks team that continues to struggle with injuries. Guard Pablo Prigioni was out with a toe fracture, and the Knicks were without Amare Stoudemire. Rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo made his first career start for Milwaukee. Antetokounmpo got in early foul trouble, but recovered to score 10 points and grab seven rebounds. NOTES: Guard O.J. Mayo was attending his grandmothers funeral and did not play for Milwaukee. ... Antetokounmpo is the youngest player to start a game in team history, and the youngest player to start an NBA game since Andrew Bynum in 2006, according to the Bucks PR staff. ... Raymond Felton (strained left hamstring) did not dress and Kenyon Martin (strained abdominal muscle) did not make the trip for New York.
