Sunday, 10.19.2014 / 12:25 AM / News

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- St. Louis Blues center Paul Stastny will not play Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks because of an upper-body injury he sustained during his first shift against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said.

Stastny, who leads the Blues in scoring with four points in the first three games, was hit by Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal along the boards at center ice and then by Mikkel Boedker in the St. Louis zone. He headed back to the locker room to be evaluated after his shift ended and did not return to the game.

Hitchcock described Stastny as day-to-day.

Avalanche shrug off doubters, slow start to season

Saturday, 10.18.2014 / 3:07 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- The Colorado Avalanche came into this season with many in the hockey world doubting their ability to build off their surprising performance in 2013-14.

The percentages simply didn't add up to long-term success.

So when the Avalanche came out of the gates with back-to-back losses by a combined score of 8-0 to the Minnesota Wild, the team that eliminated them from the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the Western Conference First Round, it appeared as though those predictions of regression were not so off base.

Those whispers were heard by the Avalanche in the offseason, and they're still being heard now. But the only affect it has had on Colorado is to strengthen the resolve to prove those people wrong.

"We certainly know that there are doubters out there. They're always going to be there," Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog said Saturday prior to facing the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET, TVA, CITY) to close out a four-game Atlantic Division road trip. "As long as we in this group, in this room, believe in ourselves, we know what we can do, we know that we can accomplish a lot of good things. Sometimes, that only motivates you when people start doubting you, saying last year was a fluke and all those things. But we know what we can do in this room, that's what's most important."

Shattenkirk's defensive gem paid off for Blues

Saturday, 10.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / Defenders of the Ice

NHL.com

The St. Louis Blues lost to the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 in a shootout Thursday at Staples Center.

They can thank defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk for the one point they got out of the game against the defending Stanley Cup champions. It was Shattenkirk’s extra effort late in the second period that kept the game scoreless.

Shattenkirk, who’s in his fifth NHL season, denied Kings forward Jeff Carter on a prime scoring chance with less than a minute left in the second period.

Carter moved in behind Shattenkirk after Kings defenseman Alec Martinez stripped the defenseman of the puck near the blue line in the St. Louis zone.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS: GOALIES STEAL FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT

Minnesota’s Darcy Kuemper established a new franchise record for longest individual shutout streak and three veteran goaltenders – Vancouver’s Ryan Miller, Florida’s Roberto Luongo and Nashville’s Pekka Rinne– posted shutouts on a night highlighted by goaltending performances.

* After not surrendering a goal through Minnesota’s first two games, Kuemper had his season-long shutout streak snapped at 4:02 of the third period versus Anaheim. His stretch of 163:46 is the longest individual single-season shutout streak in Wild history (he was off the ice for 0:16 in MIN's opening two games). The team shutout streak of 164:02 fell short of the franchise record (169:20) by just 5:18.

* Kuemper stopped the first 66 shots he faced this season and 70 of 72 overall for a 0.67 goals-against average and .972 save percentage. At age 24, he became the youngest goaltender in NHL history to post shutouts in each of his team’s first two games of a season.

Devils take mostly positives from four-game road trip

Friday, 10.17.2014 / 4:08 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- When the 2014-15 schedule came out in June, New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer immediately noticed a major challenge his team would have to overcome.

DeBoer looked down the schedule to mid-December and counted 21 road games in 17 buildings. He counted 11 games at Prudential Center.

He knew right then that if the Devils were going to give themselves a fighting chance to break a two-year Stanley Cup Playoff drought, the longest the franchise has had in 27 years, they were going to have to pick up points in a lot of unfriendly buildings, including 11 in the Eastern Conference, in the first two-plus months of the season.

They're off to a good start.

Demers, Sharks shake off first loss, key in on Devils

Friday, 10.17.2014 / 3:18 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- There's no better tonic for a loss than to get right back on the ice in an attempt to make amends.

At least that's how San Jose Sharks defenseman Jason Demers views the situation when asked about his team's demeanor 24 hours after losing its first game of the season, 4-3 to the New York Islanders in a shootout Thursday.

The Sharks (3-0-1) will play the New Jersey Devils (3-1-0) at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on Saturday.

"We did some good things and maybe they out-skated us a little bit in certain areas," Demers told NHL.com during an off-day visit to The NHL Powered by Reebok Store. "You know as a team the odds of going 82-0 are pretty tough, so eventually you might drop a few, but it's how you bounce back.

Friday, 10.17.2014 / 3:02 PM / News

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Friday the 2016 NHL All-Star weekend will be hosted by the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena, on Jan. 30 and Jan. 31, 2016.

The 2016 All-Star Game will be the first the Nashville has hosted. The Predators hosted the 2003 NHL Draft, an event that was well-received throughout the League. The NHL is confident that an All-Star Game in Nashville will garner a similar reception.

"There is no doubt that putting our game center stage here in Nashville is going to be great for the NHL and for Nashville," Bettman said.

The Predators are looking forward to putting Bridgestone Arena and the city of Nashville on display for the world to see. The Predators are trying to set the bar high for the fans to make the 2016 NHL All-Star weekend an experience they never will forget.
