It's Monday and NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network will fill you in on what to watch for "This Week in the NHL," including the Wednesday Night Rivalry matchup between Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. Three-time Stanley Cup Champion Ken Daneyko is filling in for EJ Hradek for the next two days and will give us his Hart Trophy candidates as we've already reached the quarter mark of the NHL season. We'll also get you ready for the three games on Monday's schedule, along with a live report from our PIttsburgh arena cam.

We've got three games on the schedule, and Monday marks the return of Carolina Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward as they host the Boston Bruins in Raleigh.

We'll fire up the NHL Arena Cam with a look at warmups and a preview of the game at PNC Arena, where Carolina is 4-0-1 in its past five.

Rangers look to ride momentum off win in Montreal

NEW YORK -- To say the New York Rangers were long overdue for a win in Montreal would be a major understatement.

After losing eight straight games against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre, New York finally got that elusive win in Quebec Saturday night. They only scored one goal, their first in four contests in Montreal, but it was enough with Cam Talbot making 22 saves to secure the 1-0 win.

With their first win in Montreal since March 17, 2009, the Rangers are looking to ride that momentum into their next game Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings.

"I think it's good for the team. Anytime we can get a road win, especially when you go into that building, where there hasn't been a lot of success," Rangers associate coach Scott Arniel said, "we want to use it as momentum."

Blackhawks looking to rebound against Sharks

CHICAGO -- The way their weekend started Saturday night in the "Music City," the Chicago Blackhawks hope to sing a different tune after playing the San Jose Sharks on Sunday at United Center.

Not only did the Nashville Predators defeat them 7-2 at Bridgestone Arena, the Blackhawks also played without Marian Hossa, a late scratch because of a lower-body injury, and lost goalie Nikolai Khabibulin to an undisclosed injury in the first period.

Corey Crawford, who was supposed to get a day off, finished the game and allowed five of the seven goals. He'll go again Sunday against the Sharks, who have one of the most potent offenses in the League.

Dumba in for Wild against Jets

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba is back in the lineup Sunday when the Wild face the Winnipeg Jets at Xcel Energy Center.

Dumba hasn’t played since Nov. 9 against the Carolina Hurricanes — the only game this month in which he's played — but the Wild were impressed with the Dumba-Clayton Stoner pairing in preseason matchups against the Jets.

“He’s played well against these guys,” Wild coach Mike Yeo said. “I just want to see him continue to evolve, continue to grow. He’s in here for a reason and I want to see his strengths come out in the game."

Canucks shake up lines in search of offense

VANCOUVER – Struggling to score, the Vancouver Canucks appear ready to shake up their forwards against the Dallas Stars on Sunday, breaking up their loaded top line in favor of more balance.

Ryan Kesler was moved off the wing of the No.1 line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin in practice Saturday and replaced by Alexandre Burrows, who returns to his old spot without a goal in nine games this season.

"I know how to play with them,” Burrows said of the Sedin twins. “It should be fun, just give them the puck and go to the net.”

Vancouver has scored three goals during its first three-game losing streak of the season, including a 2-1 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night in which they blew a late 1-0 lead.

The chances have been there. The goals have not.

Scrivens steps into spotlight with Kings

NEW YORK -- When he first saw the Los Angeles Kings' four-game road swing through New York and New Jersey on the calendar, goaltender Ben Scrivens thought he might have a chance to catch up with some old classmates from Cornell University, many of whom live in the New York metropolitan area.

But those plans changed drastically early in the trip for the Alberta native, who played four years at Cornell and was named ECAC goalie of the year in 2010.

In the first game Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres, franchise goaltender Jonathan Quick was lost to a lower-body injury and forced to go back home to further evaluate the ailment. That injury thrust Scrivens into the L.A. crease. He'll be there again Sunday night at Madison Square Garden as the Kings face the New York Rangers.

Blue Jackets seek return to win column

OTTAWA -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have a curious combination of streaks going as they get ready to face the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.

The Blue Jackets have just one win in their past nine games (1-5-3), yet they have earned points in four straight games. Columbus ended a five-game losing streak on Nov. 9 with a 5-2 win against the New York Islanders, then followed that up with a pair of overtime losses and a 3-2 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

Blue Jackets left wing Nick Foligno will play his first game in Ottawa since he was traded by the Senators to Columbus for defenseman Marc Methot on July 1, 2012.

"It's going to be a tooth-and-nail kind of game, where it's 60 minutes and you're grinding it out to get that win, and I think we just have to find that little extra effort to make sure we do that," Foligno said. "I think once we do, and find that way to get a win, we're going to start rolling from there."

Capitals' Johansson coming into his own

ARLINGTON, Va. -- With his team trailing the Detroit Red Wings by two goals entering the third period Friday, Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates was in need of a spark.

After a failed power play to open the period, Oates altered his top two lines, reuniting Marcus Johansson, who had recently been centering the team’s second line, with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin after nearly six games apart.

Oates’ intuition came to fruition immediately. On the reassembled first line’s first shift together, Johansson gathered a puck left for him by Backstrom near the end boards and fed Ovechkin in front for his 15th goal of the season, one that ignited Washington’s rally from two down to ultimately defeat Detroit 4-3 in a shootout.

It was the kind of fluid play that comes naturally with undeniable chemistry, which the Capitals’ top trio has firmly established by playing the bulk of their time with each other since late last season.

First | Prev | 610 | 611 | 612 | 613 | 614 | 615 | 616-621 | Next | Last
Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
