Giguere discusses Avalanche's amazing start

Colorado Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere joined NHL Live to break down his team's fast start to the season.

"Our attitude is totally different from the previous two seasons I've been here," Giguere said. "Guys are upbeat and having fun. Our practices are at a high tempo every day. Win or lose, we haven't changed the way we approach every day. It's been so much fun. It kind of gives you energy. As an old guy you go the rink and you might be tired because you have to get up with the kids an all that. But when you get to the rink, you have energy because it's so much fun."

Coach Vigneault talks state of the Rangers

New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault joined NHL Live to discuss the recent success of his team following a slow start to the season. Vigneault believes a big reason behind the Rangers' improved performance is the play of forward Chris Kreider since his recall from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

"He's one of our most important players at this time," Vigneault said. "He's generating a lot of scoring chances. He's creating a lot of room with his speed and his size for his linemates. Ever since he's come back from Hartford ... he's been one of our top-six forwards and is helping us win a lot of hockey games."

Melrose Minute: Panthers stopped listening to Dineen

One of the big stories this past weekend came Friday when the Florida Panthers dismissed coach Kevin Dineen and replaced him with Peter Horachek. I think there were a lot of reasons this move came about, with the obvious one being that for the second straight season the Panthers are struggling. New Panthers owner Vincent Viola, I think to some extent, wants to put his stamp on the team by pushing general manager Dale Tallon to make a change, but it's important to show your fans you won't settle for what's happening on the ice, and that's what this move does.

In addition to that, though, it looks to me like the players had quit listening to Dineen. In recent weeks you started seeing veteran players like Kris Versteeg as healthy scratches. When you have to start doing that as a coach, scratching veterans and guys that are supposed to be your leaders, that tends to tell you there's trouble in the dressing room. This was Dineen's third year in Florida and that third year tends to be when the majority of coaches get fired. They run out of ways to say what they believe in and the players can get tired of hearing you. I think that's what happened with Kevin.

Of course, some things were out of Dineen's control. There were a ton of injuries last season and this season, a number of guys they were counting on are having terrible years and a lot of the young guys haven't progressed as quickly as the team would have hoped. Don't forget, the Panthers also lost Stephen Weiss and Jason Garrison to free agency over the past few years and you can't really replace those guys.

Bettman applauds Shanahan's off-ice contributions

TORONTO -- While praising the five new members who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman singled out his own employee as his "personal favorite."

Brendan Shanahan is the League's Senior Vice President in charge of Player Safety.

"Obviously my personal favorite is Brendan Shanahan, because I think his contributions to the game based on what he's doing now will even exceed what he did in the 21 years he played," Commissioner Bettman said. "He's making a real mark on how the game is played, making it safer for current players and generations to come."

Panthers send Markstrom to AHL; Nash skates again

Jacob Markstrom entered training camp poised to develop from the Florida Panthers' goaltender of the future into their goaltender of the present. But the signing of Tim Thomas shortly before the season, coupled with Markstrom's slowed development, led the Panthers to assign the 23-year-old to their American Hockey League affiliate in San Antonio.

Markstrom, who hasn't won a game since Oct. 11, is 1-5-3 with a 3.36 goals-against average and .877 save percentage. Despite getting the start in a 3-2 loss on Saturday against the Ottawa Senators, Tim Thomas will be back between the pipes against the New York Rangers on Sunday at Madison Square Garden.

Henrik Lundqvist will start for the Rangers, who will insert Brandon Mashinter for Taylor Pyatt (concussion). Mashinter has been a healthy scratch the past two games for New York.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
