Blackhawks crash LA Kings' party with 5-2 rout
‘‘I think most people expected to be a little rusty, and both teams were,’’ said Scuderi, who scored midway through the second period. ‘‘We made a few mistakes, but we’re not taking it as an excuse.’’
NOTES: Scuderi matched his entire goal total from 82 games last season. ... Chicago scratched veteran RW Jamal Mayers and new D Michal Roszival. ... Los Angeles scratched new RW Anthony Stewart after acquiring him from Carolina earlier in the week.
