Ducks to go with Andersen in goal

ANAHEIM -- Depth at goalie for the Anaheim Ducks has worked out so well that backup Frederik Andersen is 4-0-0 without having started a game at home.

Logic would dictate that coach Bruce Boudreau would go back to Jonas Hiller after a win, but Andersen will get his first home start Friday against the Buffalo Sabres. Andersen was recalled from the American Hockey League when Viktor Fasth was injured, and his adjustment to the NHL has been smooth enough that Boudreau is comfortable going back to him.

"We play Vancouver on Sunday, which I want [Hiller] to play, so it seemed like a good spot for a goalie that's undeterred," Boudreau said. "What I mean by that is that there's no letdown I think in his mind because he's still trying to impress to be here."

Nylander's goal lifts Sweden past U.S. at Four Nations

William Nylander, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, scored the game-winning goal at 11:49 of the third period to give Sweden a 3-2 win against the United States at the 2013 Under-18 Four Nations Tournament, being held in Turku, Finland.

With Sweden skating on a 5-on-3 power play, Nylander beat U.S. goalie Edwin Minney.

Nylander, who plays for Rogle in Sweden's second division, earned an "A" rating from NHL Central Scouting in its preliminary list of players to watch for the 2014 draft. He is the son of former NHL center Michael Nylander.

Nylander's goal came after Jack Eichel's second goal of the game tied things at 8:11 of the third. Eichel, who plays for the United States National Team Development Program's under-18 team, also had a power-play goal in the second period. He is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft.

Fantasy Spin: Stars' Nichushkin picking up steam

Whether we're talking fantasy or reality, Dallas Stars rookie Valeri Nichushkin has a bright future ahead of him.

And glimpses of his promise are already evident this season.

The 18-year-old Russian has put together a three-game point streak after a slow start to the season (two points in his first 12 games). His patience in the offensive zone in overtime against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday allowed him to feed Rich Peverley for the game-winning goal.

Maple Leafs' Clarkson not concerned by facing Devils

TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson will see some familiar faces Friday when his current team faces his former one, the New Jersey Devils (7:30 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS2).

"I have a lot of friends over there and I spent a lot of time with a lot of people I'm close with, but it's another game," Clarkson said. "I'm a part of something new and I've got to move forward. But I don't know, maybe as the game gets closer maybe I'll feel a little different, but it's definitely the difference in warm-up wearing a different jersey than I'm used to."

Clarkson played seven seasons with the Devils, highlighted by a 30-goal season and trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 2011-12.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.

— Sabres forward Jack Eichel on transitioning from college hockey to the NHL
