Islanders hope to build momentum against Devils

UNIONDALE, N.Y. – The New York Islanders ended a five-game losing streak Thursday night when they rallied for a 4-3 shootout victory against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

The Islanders (5-7-1) hope to build off that win Saturday evening, when they play host to the New Jersey Devils at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. New Jersey, which also rallied for a 5-3 win on home ice against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, sit atop the Eastern Conference with 21 points (9-2-3).

Johan Hedberg gets the start in goal for New Jersey. Hedberg, who turns 40 in May, has allowed two goals in three appearances this season. He is 2-0-1 with a 0.65 goals-against average and .973 save percentage. Hedberg stopped all 22 shots he faced in the Devils’ 3-0 win against the Islanders on Feb. 3 at the Coliseum.

GOALS: 6 | ASST: 8 | PTS: 14

Center Pavel Datsyuk is not in the Detroit Red Wings' line for Friday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks. According to published reports, he is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Prior to Friday, Datsyuk had registered goals in three straight games. It was the first time in more than a year that the Wings' Russian star had scored in three consecutive games. He has six goals and eight assists in 13 games.

Detroit recalled rookie forward Gustav Nyquist from their AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, to take Datsyuk's place. He'll play with center Valtteri Filppula and forward Justin Abdelkader on the second line.

Report: Landeskog back on the ice

Gabriel Landeskog
Left Wing - COL
GOALS: 1 | ASST: 0 | PTS: 1
SOG: 15 | +/-: 3
The Denver Post is reporting that Gabriel Landeskog, out since sustaining a concussion Jan. 26, skated for the first time Friday.

The report states that the 20-year-old Colorado Avalanche captain skated for an unspecified length of time at the team's practice facility, with club medical personnel watching. Neither Landeskog nor the team would comment on where Landeskog is in his recovery.

It's unclear when Landeskog will skate again.

Landeskog was hit hard by the San Jose Sharks' Brad Stuart during a Jan. 26 game. Landeskog was able to return after missing a few shifts, but has yet to play again. He has one goal and a plus-3 rating in four games.

Rome still has exalted place in Canucks' history

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Aaron Rome was a popular player when he left the Vancouver Canucks and signed with the Dallas Stars last summer.

The defenseman returned as a franchise leader Friday.

As Rome walked down a hallway that became familiar during three seasons in Vancouver, he couldn't help but notice his name on the wall where the Canucks honor past team award winners. Atop each category, from all-stars and MVPs, to most exciting player and unsung hero, was a piece of white hockey tape with Rome’s full name scribbled across it.

Rome, who often made headlines in Vancouver for getting picked to play ahead of more established, higher-paid players, took it in stride.

"Nothing new," Rome said. "It's all good fun. Guys like to have fun here and I had a lot of fun in the three years I was here."

Jagr celebrates birthday where NHL career started

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Jaromir Jagr celebrated his 41st birthday Friday in the city where his NHL career started, giving the Dallas Stars forward a chance to reflect on being drafted almost 23 years ago.

The Pittsburgh Penguins picked Jagr with the fifth choice of the 1990 NHL Draft, which was held at BC Place, across the street from where he will play against the Vancouver Canucks on Friday.

A lot has changed since then, including the building the Canucks play in, as well as five players who will play with and against him Friday who hadn't been born when Jagr was drafted.

Evidently Jagr's opinion of himself has changed too.

"Back then I never thought I am going to play NHL," he said. "I didn't think I am good enough to play NHL and I was wondering why the Pittsburgh Penguins draft me. I was very thin, not very strong."

Bernier likely to start again in Kings' net

Jonathan Bernier reportedly was the first goalie off the ice at the Los Angeles Kings' morning skate Friday, meaning it's likely Bernier will start against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It would be his first back-to-back starts under coach Darryl Sutter, who talked about the need for better goaltending Thursday.

Jonathan Quick is 1-3-1 in his past five starts and let in some soft goals in his prior start Sunday, including the game-winner in the final seconds against the Detroit Red Wings.
