They’re Kings of cellar

first_imgCHICAGO – The Kings took a firmer grip on last place in the Western Conference on Tuesday night. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 26 shots to earn his first shutout with the Blackhawks and Patrick Sharp scored two goals in Chicago’s 3-0 victory over the Kings in a matchup of the conference’s two worst teams. Khabibulin, who signed a four-year, $27 million contract with the Blackhawks in August 2005, posted his first regular-season shutout since March1, 2004, while with Tampa Bay. He played his 99th game with Chicago and recorded his 36th NHL shutout. “He played well,” Kings coach Marc Crawford said of Khabibulin. “I thought he was sound and didn’t allow a lot of rebounds, especially in the first period. But we didn’t test him to the level that we’ll be sending that one to the Hall of Fame.” Sean Burke made 18 saves for the Kings, last in the West with 54 points. Following the game, Crawford could be heard yelling at his team behind the closed dressing room door. “When you allow any team in the National Hockey League not to work for their goals, then you’re really facing an uphill battle,” Crawford said. “In a game tonight between twoteams at the bottom of the league battling for position, I was disappointed in how our battle level was.” Rene Bourque also scored for Chicago, which won its second straight after a 1-6-2 stretch. Brent Seabrook and Jeff Hamilton each had two assists. Bourque had the only goal of the first period, scoring just 22seconds in on the game’s first shot. Khabibulin made a couple of close-in stops in the first, including a toe save on Mike Cammalleri at 4:37. center_img Sharp made it 2-0 at 1:38 of the second period. He swept in a one-timed shot from the left circle after Seabrook chipped a cross-ice pass to him that bounced past two Kings. The Kings managed only three shots in the second, two on a late power play. Also: The Kings recalled defenseman Peter Harrold from Manchester of the AHL and he arrived in time to play. … Defenseman Rob Blake was a late scratch because of a groin pull. Center Anze Kopitar missed his third game with a muscle strain, and defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky sat out his second with a lower body injury. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jonathan Prince Leaves Spotify for Role at Slack

first_imgPrince was also with Spotify at the time of its public sparring with Taylor Swift over royalty rates, and had been an outspoken critic of Apple Music’s “app tax,” in which the company takes a 30%  commission on every subscription sold on its App Store. Popular on Variety Jonathan Prince, the Spotify executive who helped lead the company’s ill-fated policy against “hateful conduct” last year, has left the company to join the work-flow platform Slack, according to his LinkedIn profile. A rep for Spotify did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment; the news was first reported in Music Business Worldwide.Prince’s profile states that last month he became Slack’s Head of Strategic Communications and Senior Advisor to the CEO. Since 2014 he had been Spotify’s VP, head of marketplace and content policy and vp, global head of communications and public policy.Prince, who previously held advisory roles in the Clinton and Obama administrations, was described by a source as being at the “center” of Spotify’s controversial policy against “hateful conduct” last year, which essentially amounted to banning the music of two artists — R. Kelly and XXXTentacion — from the platform’s playlists. The announcement met with immediate backlash from the media, artists, legal experts and even, according to sources, several senior Spotify executives, and was quickly walked back in the face of fierce criticism over its vaguely stated criteria, the impracticality of policing it, Spotify’s seeming hubris in making such determinations, and especially the fact that it has thus far targeted only black males who have been accused but not convicted of serious crimes.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
