NHL Live talks to Gretzky from Dodger Stadium

Wayne Gretzky will be at Dodger Stadium on Monday to welcome the NHL's ice truck, and NHL Live with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will talk live with The Great One. The ice truck is arriving in Los Angeles to begin the process of turning the legendary baseball stadium into an outdoor hockey rink for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The Winnipeg Jets made a coaching change Sunday, replacing Claude Noel with Paul Maurice, and analyst Barry Melrose will go Behind the Bench to give his thoughts on this and other coaching moves in the NHL over the past week.

New York Islanders center John Tavares is the League's No. 1 star of the week and he'll call in to talk about the team's recent hot streak.

Panthers, Devils searching for more offense

Goals will likely be at a premium Saturday night at Prudential Center when the Florida Panthers face the New Jersey Devils.

The Panthers have gone 2-1-1 in their past four despite scoring just seven goals in that span and the Devils have gone 3-2-1 with just 11 goals in their past six contests. Both teams hope to find some goals in a game featuring two of the NHL's lowest-scoring teams in the Devils (26th overall) and Panthers (28th).

"We're getting opportunities. We've got to bear down. Against this team [Saturday night], you're not going to get as many chances," Florida coach Peter Horachek said. "They play a very structured system down low. They're not going to be easy to play against. You have to work for your chances."

If Florida does have one thing going for it, it's the play of its top line. The trio of rookie Aleksander Barkov and veterans Sean Bergenheim and Brad Boyes has accounted for 10 goals in the past 10 games, making it one of the League's hottest lines.

Struggling Stars make lineup adjustments for Devils

Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff isn't in desperation mode yet, but he put his team through quite a workout Wednesday at Chelsea Piers in New York City in preparation for the New Jersey Devils on Thursday at Prudential Center.

Most notable was the fact Ruff did some major line reshuffling, moving Rich Peverley to the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Valeri Nichushkin, who had been playing on the top line, was placed with Erik Cole and Cody Eakin. Vernon Fiddler centered Ray Whitney and Alex Chiasson, and Shawn Horcoff centered Antoine Roussel and Ryan Garbutt.

"I'd like to move [Fiddler] up again," Ruff told the Stars website. "He was playing so well before he got hurt. I'd like to get him in some combination, so I thought we'd take a look at that. [Peverley] has gone good at the middle of the ice, but sometimes you need a little bit of a shakeup. Eakin and Cole have played well for a good stretch of time, and for [Eakin] I'd like to get him in a more offensive situation."

Vanek talks Islanders' surge, Sochi Games

New York Islanders forward Thomas Vanek joined NHL Live to discuss the recent success of his team and the honor of being named to play for Austria at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

"Expectations are we go there and try to win the gold, obviously," Vanek said. "We're happy to be there … we know we're the big underdog, but it's fun. We have guys who can play. We have to play smart and for us we need good goaltending. If we can get goaltending and get a lot of big saves, you just never know in this game."
