Oilers' Bryzgalov gets first shot at Flyers since buyout

EDMONTON -- Ilya Bryzgalov will be looking for a measure of revenge when the Edmonton Oilers host the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night at Rexall Place.

The Oilers goaltender is facing his former team for the first time since being bought out this offseason, two years into a nine-year, $51 million contract.

Bryzgalov signed with the Oilers as a free agent on Nov. 8 and has played in eight games.

"Bryzgalov has been excellent for us," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "Obviously not being in the Philadelphia organization, you read things and you hear things and you see all of this talk. It seems like it's been the exact opposite here from what went on there.

"He's been a good teammate and a pleasure to coach. He's been stopping the puck fairly well. We've had absolutely no problems at all."

Bruins adjust after losing Seidenberg for season

OTTAWA -- Tuukka Rask's NHL-leading fourth shutout of the season Friday in the Boston Bruins' 5-0 win against the Ottawa Senators may have postponed Niklas Svedberg's first NHL start.

Now, an injury to defenseman Dennis Seidenberg definitely has.

Boston coach Claude Julien said he had made up his mind which goaltender would start the second game of the back-to-back set against Ottawa, but he was keeping that decision to himself.

Rask, Svedberg and backup Chad Johnson were all on the ice Saturday for the Bruins' optional skate at Canadian Tire Centre. However, Svedberg was sent back to Providence of the American Hockey League on Saturday afternoon when it was necessary for the Bruins to recall defenseman Zach Trotman to replace Seidenberg, who will be out for the season with a knee injury sustained Friday.

Czech Republic records shootout upset over Canada

Dominik Simon scored the winning goal in the shootout, giving the Czech Republic a 5-4 win against Canada in a preliminary-round game Saturday in Group A of the 2014 World Junior Championship played at Malmo Issatadion.

Simon skated in on Paterson and deked forehand to backhand. As he skated to the left, Paterson followed him but Simon left the puck on his backhand and tucked it behind Paterson for the winner.

"As soon as the coach told me I was taking the shootout, I knew I was going to do it," Simon told the IIHF website. "It was the last shot, so I knew the goalie would react to my first move so I moved to the forehand and then went back. Fortunately, it was successful.

"I haven't tried it a lot but it's harder in practice because the goalie isn't scared of your moves. You look like a jerk when it doesn't work, but in a game it's a good play.”

The Czechs led the game four different times en route to the nation's first WJC win against Canada since 1993, when the country was known as Czechoslovakia.

Islanders' Tavares out with lower-body injury

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- John Tavares' streak of 246 consecutive games played will come to an end Saturday night.

A lower-body injury will force the New York Islanders captain to sit out against the New Jersey Devils at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and Islanders coach Jack Capuano didn't want to discuss it in great detail.

The Islanders are listing Tavares as day-to-day. Capuano said the injury wasn't sustained during a 3-0 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Monday, but rather something that's been lingering.

"I'm concerned, obviously," Capuano said Saturday morning. "You know what Johnny is to our hockey club. He's not only our leader, but obviously his play speaks for itself. But at this particular time, he's not ready to go. We're not going to put him in a situation where he can further hurt himself.

"You just be cautious with it, and hopefully he'll feel better tomorrow."
