OTTAWA - Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa had a memorable night in the city where his NHL career started.Hossa had a goal and an assist in the Blackhawks 5-4 shootout win over the Senators on Thursday night in Ottawa, reaching two special milestones where he began his career back in 1997.Hossas goal at 13:50 of the third period was his 1,000th career point and it came in his 1,100th game in the NHL. The veteran forward started his career with the Senators, moved on to Atlanta, Pittsburgh and then Detroit before finding his current home in Chicago.What a special night for it to happen in Ottawa where it started, said Hossa, who stood and waved to the fans when they gave him a standing ovation after his accomplishment was announced. Its a great achievement and a great milestone and Im very thankful to all that players who helped me achieve this throughout my career,I played (in Ottawa) seven years and the people were nice to me during the time I was here and it was so nice of them for the thanks, so I just stood and thanked them back. Im always going to remember this.Patrick Sharp scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Blackhawks the road victory. Jonathan Toews scored twice for Chicago (6-3-1), while Kris Versteeg added a goal in regulation time. Scott Darling turned aside 28 shots for the win.Mark Stone, Clarke MacArthur, Bobby Ryan and Mika Zibanejad had goals for Ottawa (5-2-2), while Craig Anderson made 35 saves.Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was appreciative of Hossas milestone.Its a special accomplishment, said Quenneville. It shows youve been consistently productive in your career and he does it, not just production wise but he does it by playing on both side of the puck which makes that 1,000 number pretty impressive.Hossas goal was just one of four in a third-period outburst from the two clubs after they went into the period tied 2-2.When we played them close and played them tight it was a much better game for us, said Senators coach Paul MacLean. When we played them loose and I guess gave them respect is the proper word, they made us pay for it.For our group to play the way we did and to get a point out of it I think its a great way to continue momentum. We had a lot of great efforts and we can feel pretty good about it.Ryan gave the Senators a 3-2 lead just 30 seconds into the period when he grabbed a loose puck in front of the Blackhawks goal and surprised Darling with a quick shot.Toews scored his second of the game at 7:31 and then Hossa gave Chicago the lead six minutes later on a shot Anderson admitted he misplayed.The Senators pressured Chicago in its own end until Zibanejad scored not only his first goal of the season, but also collected his first point when he beat Darling through the legs from the slot at 17:52.They were able to pick me up on that fourth one and tie it up to get us to overtime, Anderson said. That was huge with Mika getting on the scoreboard for us and picking up for my mistake but thats what its all about, picking up your teammates when something goes wrong and our guys did a great job.MacArthur scored the only goal of the second period and it tied the game 2-2 just 2:51 into the period.With the Blackhawks shorthanded as Duncan Keith served time for holding, MacArthur jammed a loose puck through Darlings legs during a goal-mouth scramble.Both teams had several good scoring chances throughout the rest of the period but both Darling and Anderson elevated their play. There were also lots of good opportunities in the opening 20 minutes as well, especially from the younger players on the Senators.After taking a pass from second-year defenceman Cody Ceci, Stone passed off to rookie Curtis Lazar and then headed to the front of the net where he tipped Lazars shot through the legs of Darling.The Senators held that lead until the Blackhawks scored twice in a span of just over four minutes in the second half of the period.Toews tied the game 1-1 when his wrist shot barely crossed the goal line behind Anderson with several bodies in front of the net.The Blackhawks then took their first lead at 15:36 when Versteeg slipped around Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson in the faceoff circle and then went around a sprawling Anderson before tucking the puck inside the far post.That goal came moments after Mike Hoffman had a great opportunity to give the Senators the lead.Notes - Senators goaltender Robin Lehner missed Thursdays game as he spent the evening with wife Donya and son Lennox, who was born earlier in the day…Other than Lehner, Colin Greening, Erik Condra and Mark Borowiecki were scratches for the Senators.

The Cottonmouths announced Friday the team intended to sign the Edmonton goalie. Szabados would be the first female to play in the 10-team SPHL since its formation 10 years ago, the team said. Its been an eventful two weeks for Szabados, who backstopped the Canadian womens hockey team to Olympic gold Feb. 20 in Sochi. "When I got home from Sochi, I thought Id be hanging my stuff up for the summer, but definitely excited to get over there," Szabados told The Canadian Press. "Theres three guys that I played college with that play on this team in Columbus and theyve been bugging me for a couple of years to go there." "I had never talked to their head coach and he called me yesterday. Honestly, I thought he was calling to ask me if I would want to go there next year. It happened a little fast, but Im excited." Szabados made 27 saves in Canadas 3-2 thrilling overtime win over the U.S. to defend the gold in Sochi. She posted a 28-save shutout over the Americans in the womens Olympic hockey final in 2010. But the 27-year-old has spent the majority of her hockey career in mens leagues. She played for Sherwood Park, Bonneyville and Fort Saskatchewan during her four years in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Szabados was named the AJHLs top goaltender in 2006-07 after helping Fort Saskatchewan to a league-best record of 45-11-0-4. She then spent five years in Alberta mens college hockey with Grant MacEwen and then NAIT. She set a league record in 2012-13 for the lowest goals-against average (1.58) and her NAIT Ooks won their first championship in 16 years. Szabados stopped 30 of 31 shots in the final game. Cottonmouths captain Kyle Johnson, forward Jordan Draper and defenceman Andy Willigar are her former NAIT teammates. She suspects they paved her road to her first pro tryout. "Probably the guys had a lot to do with it," Szabados said. "It probably made the coach feel a little more at ease with the situation." Szabados will head to Columbus on Wednesday and will be introduced at a news conference the following day prior to a game at home against the Pensaccola Ice Flyers.dddddddddddd Winnipegs Andrew Loewen is the starting goaltender for the Cottonmouths "I am very excited to get a world-class athlete that has competed and has faced, high-pressured situations," Cottonmouths head coach Jerome Bechard said in a statement. "She won a championship with NAIT last year alongside Andy Willigar and Jordan Draper so I know she can compete at this level," Bechard said. "We are working on her immigration, and we are looking to sign her officially Thursday, where she will be backing up Loewen. "She will play when she feels comfortable and situated." The Cottonmouths are 23-22-3 and rank seventh in the league. Szabados participated in an Edmonton Oilers practice Wednesday. The Oilers were short a goalie on trade deadline day awaiting the arrival of Viktor Fasth from Anaheim. Szabados is grateful for that practice now because its the only time shes been on the ice since winning Olympic gold Feb. 20. "I havent been in the gym, I havent been on the ice, I havent been sleeping well," Szabados confessed. "Its been a whirlwind. I told (the coach) Im not going to rush into anything. If I dont feel comfortable I might not even play at all this year. "I want to go there and get on the ice and see how I feel. I still have to unpack from Sochi and pack for this. Im not too worried. Its only been two weeks." No woman has ever played in an NHL regular-season game. Goaltender Manon Rheaume became the first to play in an exhibition game with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992. Canadian womens star Hayley Wickenheiser has played as a forward in mens leagues in Finland and Sweden. The SPHL also includes the Bloomington Thunder, Fayetteville FireAntz, Huntsville Havoc, Knoxville IceBears, Louisiana IceGators, Mississippi RiverKings, Mississippi Surge and Peoria Rivermen. Szabados is accustomed to joining male teams. She believes her former Ook teammates will help her settle into the Cottonmouths locker room. "With having those three guys that Ive played with and since this has happened, at least a handful have tweeted at me and reached out to me," she said. "The older Ive gotten, the easier the transition has been to a new team. Im honestly not worried at all. They seem like a good group of guys." ' ' '
