Schmaltz powers U.S. in World Junior A opener

Nick Schmaltz, an "A"-rated prospect on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list for the 2014 NHL Draft, had two goals and two assists to help lead the United States to an 8-3 victory against Russia in its first game at the 2013 World Junior A Challenge, being held at Yarmouth Mariners Centre in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

The U.S., which has won four of the past five tournament titles, outshot the Russians 41-27. Schmaltz, who plays for the Green Bay Gamblers of the United States Hockey League, scored twice in the Americans' five-goal second period as the U.S. opened a 6-1 advantage.

"Great chemistry and our power play was clicking [5-for-9], so that helps," Schmaltz told Tina Comeau of the Yarmouth County Vanguard. "We've got a lot of skill on this team, we're comfortable playing with these players, we've got one line that's been playing together for 100 games. I thought we had a great game."

PHI @ CAR - 16:02 of the Third Period

At 16:02 of the third period in the Flyers/Hurricanes game, video review supported the referee's call on the ice that Scott Hartnell's stick was below the level of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the net. According to Rule 60.5 "The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick. If the puck makes contact with the stick below the level of the crossbar and enters the goal, this goal shall be allowed." Good goal Philadelphia.

Sharks' Burns making progress in recovery

SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks injured forward Brent Burns will miss his seventh straight game Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres, but he took another step forward in his recovery from a head injury.

Burns took part in the Sharks' morning skate at SAP Center at San Jose, going through team drills for the first time in 16 days.

Burns was injured Oct. 12 against the Ottawa Senators when he was hit in the face by a high-stick by goaltender Robin Lehner, losing a number of teeth. Burns played three more games but has been sidelined since Oct. 19.

"That's a great step," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said of Burns' return to team drills. "I don't know if you're going to qualify it as little or big, but getting closer, feeling better, back out there with his teammates. I didn't know who he was when he came out because he doesn't look the same, but it's nice to see him out there."

Coyotes after improvement despite fast start

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes are off to their best start in more than a decade, but even with a four-game winning streak and the NHL's most potent defense, coach Dave Tippett is still tinkering with his lineup and looking for more production.

After allowing 50 shots and needing 48 saves from goalie Mike Smith to pull out a 3-2 shootout win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday, Tippett juggled his defense pairings at the morning skate Tuesday, splitting up Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Zbynek Michalek for the first time this season.

Turnovers and defensive zone coverage remain a concern for the Coyotes, who have allowed 46 goals in their first 15 games and been forced to come from behind in several of them. The Coyotes face the equally hot Vancouver Canucks in another big Pacific Division matchup Tuesday at Jobing.com Arena.

Canadiens' Desharnais healthy scratch against Blues

MONTREAL -- A situation that has been brewing all season came to a head Tuesday with Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien making center David Desharnais a healthy scratch for their game against the St. Louis Blues.

Desharnais has one assist in 15 games this season, and dating back to last season he has one goal and eight assists in his past 32 regular season and Stanley Cup Playoff games.

"It's never easy to make a decision like this," Therrien said. "The principle is to always make it so a player is at his best, but when we don't see results decisions need to be made."

Desharnais, 27, is in the first of a four-year, $14 million contract he signed in March, one he earned with a 60-point season in 2011-12. But last season was a down year for him with 28 points in 48 games, and he is in the midst of the worst slump of his NHL career.

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.
