Thomas Vanek enjoying success with Canadiens

Montreal Canadiens forward Thomas Vanek was a guest of NHL Live to discuss playing in Montreal and the team's recent hot streak. The Canadiens have won eight of their past nine games and Vanek has six goals and 10 points in his past seven.

"It's a blast," Vanek said. "Obviously it's always nice to come to a team and win right away, so it's been good. I thought we've been playing some good hockey. We're just finding ways to win, which is what good teams do."

Vanek has found chemistry playing on a line with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty.

Mark Van Guilder, 30, talks NHL debut with Predators

One night after making his NHL debut with the Nashville Predators at the age of 30, forward Mark Van Guilder joined NHL Live discuss the experience.

Van Guilder was in a team meeting with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League this past Saturday when he found out he was going to Nashville.

"I was surprised at first, but all my teammates gave me hugs and high-fives and everything like that," Van Guilder said. "It was pretty special for me. It was awesome."

Van Guilder, who was reassigned to Milwaukee on Monday, played 8:27 on a line with Colin Wilson and Viktor Stalberg in Nashville's 4-3 shootout win against the Washington Capitals on Sunday.

Ducks' Selanne downplaying last game vs. Jets

Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne, who began his NHL career with the original Winnipeg Jets, on Monday will play his final game against the current Winnipeg franchise.

Selanne, who has said the 2013-14 season will be his final one, had 76 goals and 132 points as a rookie with the Jets in 1992-93 and spent his first four NHL seasons with them.

Since leaving the Jets he's gone on to score 684 goals, second among active players. This season he has nine goals and 25 points in 58 games; he's sat out the second of back-to-back games this season to conserve energy for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"I try to take this as a normal game," Selanne told the Ducks' website. "Obviously I know it's the last game, so it's always special. I'll try to enjoy it."

Desperate Devils deal with inexperienced Islanders

Sitting four points behind a quartet of teams tied for the Eastern Conference's two wild-card spots in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the New Jersey Devils have eight games remaining in the regular season. Any chance New Jersey had of making the playoffs has been bolstered by the collective poor play of those four teams.

The Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs went a combined 1-6-1 this week before evening games began Saturday; that includes Washington's 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday afternoon.

Visiting the New York Islanders on Saturday, the Devils are looking to make one last-gasp run at the postseason.

"We have nine games to go. If we want to make the playoffs we have to win almost every game now. And every game is tough. There are no easy games in this League," forward Jaromir Jagr said. "We have to make sure we play our game and we might need help from other teams."

Lightning's Callahan enjoying new surroundings

Tampa Bay Lightning wing Ryan Callahan wasn't the focal point of the transaction that sent Martin St. Louis to the New York Rangers at the NHL Trade Deadline. Though St. Louis has yet to score in 13 games with New York, former Rangers captain Callahan has flourished in his new surroundings down south.

The hope is he can continue that scoring run when the Lightning visit the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night at First Niagara Center, which is located roughly 75 miles from Callahan's hometown of Rochester, N.Y.

"I'm really glad to be in Tampa," Callahan said after the morning skate Saturday. "I couldn't have landed in a better spot."

Panthers turn to Ellis against Canadiens

Just before the passing of the NHL Trade Deadline earlier this month, it looked like the Florida Panthers would have a wealth of experience in the crease when Roberto Luongo was acquired from the Vancouver Canucks to join Tim Thomas.

But with Thomas traded to the Dallas Stars before the deadline and Luongo now battling an upper-body injury, Florida will turn to its backups against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night at BB&T Center.

Dan Ellis entered the game Thursday during Florida's 3-0 home loss to the Carolina Hurricanes after Luongo was hurt in a collision with forward Radek Dvorak. Scott Clemmensen was called up Friday from the American Hockey League and will back up Ellis, who gets the start against Montreal.

Ellis and Clemmensen have served as backups for most of their careers, but Panthers coach Peter Horachek remained confident in his goaltending.

"[Clemmensen] has done a great job for us throughout the year," Horachek said after Florida's morning skate. "When Tim Thomas was here and got hurt, [Clemmensen] played those games. We had some road trips up there and did pretty well, won three out of four and he played three of those games. I think they're both quality guys and we'll be fine with him."

Penguins' Goc to miss three weeks

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Marcel Goc will miss three weeks with a foot injury.

The timeline for the injury means Goc, acquired from the Florida Panthers at the NHL Trade Deadline, would miss the rest of the regular season and perhaps the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Rangers forward Kreider has hand surgery

New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider had surgery on his left hand Friday at Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

Kreider, who is tied for second on the Rangers this season with 17 goals, is out indefinitely.

The 22-year-old was injured Friday night in New York's win at the Columbus Blue Jackets but played in the next two games before coming out of the lineup while a determination was made on how to proceed.

"Waiting for the doctors to tell us what was the best course of action," coach Alain Vigneault said. "He came to the conclusion yesterday and he got operated on today."

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
