Guerin, Curley give thanks to Devils GM Lamoriello

DETROIT -- United States Hockey Hall of Fame inductees Cindy Curley and Bill Guerin went out of their ways Monday to mention how important New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello was in the growth of their careers.

Lamoriello was the men’s hockey coach and athletic director at Providence College during Curley’s time as a player at the school. Curley said few people at that time were as dedicated to the advancement of women’s hockey as Lamoriello.

“He did so much for that school and promoting hockey,” Curley said. “All hockey, women’s hockey, men’s hockey. I think he was way ahead of his time by treating the women’s program equally to the men’s program.”

Curley thought U.S. Hall call was a mistake

DETROIT -- Cindy Curley couldn’t believe the call when it came from USA Hockey. In fact, she really didn’t believe what executive director Dave Ogrean was telling her.

“I thought he was calling me for some arbitration panel,” she said Monday prior to her induction into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame. “Then he told me [it was the Hall of Fame], and I thought, ‘He has the wrong person.’ I didn’t want to volunteer, this is Cindy Curley, you probably called me by mistake.”

Bettman calls Karmanos' influence 'immeasurable'

DETROIT -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said he was proud of all five members of the 2013 induction class for the United States Hockey Hall of Fame, but he was most excited that Peter Karmanos Jr. was receiving one of hockey's highest honors.

"I consider Pete to be a great friend," Bettman told NHL.com. "It's nice to see somebody who's contributed to the game at all levels get recognized, not just for his ownership of the Hurricanes and winning a Stanley Cup, but the fact that at the grassroots level, teaching thousands of kids how to play the game and how to excel at the game has been immeasurable in terms of the growth of the game."

Bettman also said he was happy to see Doug Weight and Bill Guerin join Karmanos in this year's Hall class. He has seen those players go from Stanley Cup champions as players to development and coaching roles with the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins, respectively.

"They were always fierce competitors on the ice but really good guys off the ice as well," Bettman said. "And it's not surprising that they excel at whatever they do."

Nelson back in lineup for Islanders; Poulin starts

PHILADELPHIA -- Looking for extra size down the middle, New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano has opted to put Brock Nelson back in the lineup.

The 6-foot-3, 196-pounder has played center and the wing, but is a natural center. He was a healthy scratch for the Islanders' 4-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

Smiling Flyers surging, more comfortable for Berube

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers had a full and happy group on the ice Saturday morning as they got ready for their game against the visiting New York Islanders.

Winning five of six like the Flyers have generally puts a smile on people's faces.

"When you're winning it's definitely a better atmosphere," Flyers center Vincent Lecavalier said. "I think we're having a lot of fun out there. We're working hard but we're smiling. We're just playing. ... I think everything snowballs in a good way. When things go well you feel better out there individually and as a team."

Perron returns for Oilers; Flyers shuffle lines

PHILADELPHIA -- The Edmonton Oilers will have forward David Perron back in the lineup Saturday when they play the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers again have shuffled their lines, with Matt Read and Brayden Schenn moving up to flank Claude Giroux on the top line, and Scott Hartnell and Wayne Simmonds joining Vincent Lecavalier on the second line.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
