Lightning's Bishop out after taking puck to midsection

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 7:53 PM / News

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning starting goaltender Ben Bishop was a late scratch against the Buffalo Sabres after sustaining an injury in practice on Tuesday. Andrei Vasilevskiy started in his place.

Bishop was hit in the midsection with a puck about 10 minutes into practice and stayed down for a few moments before leaving the ice to see a trainer. Lightning coach Jon Cooper said Bishop took a shot to a sensitive area and his status would be decided in warm-ups.

During warm-ups, Vasilevskiy took all the shots while Bishop stretched with a trainer.

Vasilevskiy, the 19th overall selection in the 2012 NHL Draft, is 4-3-1 with a .912 save percentage and 2.46 goals-against average in 10 appearances.

Kucherov settles in, surges during second season

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 4:25 PM / NHL Insider

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA – Before Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov could enjoy the success he has had during his second season in the NHL, he had to go through the growing pains of being a rookie.

After scoring his first career NHL goal on his first shot, Kucherov's rookie season featured everything someone might expect a 20-year-old from Russia to go through. He had scoring droughts, he was the target of physical play and he dealt with the natural culture shock of being in a new place.

On the surface Kucherov's rookie season was a slight disappointment. He had nine goals and nine assists in 52 games. His struggles were magnified when he became a healthy scratch for two games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. But Lightning coach Jon Cooper said it was a valuable learning experience that he needed.

"He dealt with a lot of adversity as a rookie," Cooper said. "He took a lot of lumps and he learned some important lessons. He came out strong and I think he felt like he was going to score all the time, and that's the mentality of most scorers. But it didn't happen and he had to learn how to create opportunities for himself and a big part of that was improving his play without the puck."

Flames' Gaudreau relishes homecoming, facing Flyers

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 3:50 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- The stands were crowded with fans and media, watching every shot, every pass, every lap on the ice turned by Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau on Tuesday.

And that was just for the morning skate.

Gaudreau has been the center of attention since Saturday when the Flames arrived in Philadelphia. The 21-year-old grew up just across the Delaware River in Carneys Point, N.J., and the rookie's return to the Delaware Valley has seen him treated like a hero.

"It's been exciting getting the chance to come home," Gaudreau said after the Flames morning skate Tuesday. "I think this is one of the biggest breaks we've had in our season throughout the whole season [and] I'm fortunate it's here in Philly where I get to go home and get home-cooked meals and sleep in my own bed. See my little sister who I haven't seen, see my older sister who is due in a couple days for her first kid. Just a great time to be home right now."

Maple Leafs' Kessel says Phaneuf unfairly blamed

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 3:36 PM / News

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Toronto Maple Leafs center Phil Kessel came to the defense of captain Dion Phaneuf on Tuesday, saying Phaneuf has been unfairly criticized by the media.

In a scrum after the morning skate, Kessel was asked whether the uncertainty surrounding the NHL Trading Deadline, which passed Monday afternoon, had gotten to him. Big changes were predicted for the Maple Leafs, but the team did not touch the core players, which include Kessel and Phaneuf. Forward David Clarkson was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday for injured forward Nathan Horton.

"No, but I'm disappointed today," Kessel said. "The way the media treats Dion Phaneuf in [Toronto] is embarrassing. I think a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves. I'm embarrassed for them. I don't think anyone deserves to be treated like that."

Red Wings address needs in acquiring Zidlicky, Cole

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 2:56 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Paul Harris - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have been seeking a veteran, right-handed shooting defenseman who can provide some offense since the end of last season.

They were unable to pick one up in free agency last summer and could not work out a trade for such a player prior to the beginning of the 2014-15 season.

But despite having an entire defensive corps of left-handed shooters for most of the season -- Alexey Marchenko, a right-hand shot, was called up from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League and played a few games recently -- Detroit has a 35-15-11 record, good for 81 points and third place in the Atlantic Division.

The Red Wings' play and development over the season and their 4-1-1 record on a just-completed six-game western road trip, convinced general manager Ken Holland his team had earned the opportunity to get a little help from the outside.

Leopold joins Wild, discusses daughter's letter

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 2:20 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Myers - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- New Minnesota Wild defenseman Jordan Leopold has had an emotional 24 hours. It will be capped off Tuesday when Leopold makes his debut with his hometown Wild against the Ottawa Senators at Xcel Energy Center.

"This is up there. This is home to me and this is pretty special," Leopold said. "I got the phone call [Monday] from [Columbus Blue Jackets general manager] Jarmo [Kekalainen] and didn't know what to make of it. I've always dreamed of it and knew it was possible, but the fact that it becomes reality tonight is something special."

Leopold met his family at the airport Monday night, where he said he had an emotional reunion with his wife Jamie and four children.

His oldest daughter Jordyn, who turns 11 next month, has become a national sensation for the letter she wrote to Minnesota Wild coaches in January, asking them to trade for her father so he could come home.

Rutherford's series of trades puts stamp on Penguins

Tuesday, 03.03.2015 / 12:00 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- These are Jim Rutherford's Pittsburgh Penguins.

Through nine months with Rutherford as their general manager, the Penguins are nearly unrecognizable beyond their core, which remains the same as it has been during any season in recent memory. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin remain the top two centers, Kris Letang continues his role as the standout defenseman and Marc-Andre Fleury calls the crease at Consol Energy Center home.

Not much else is the same. Under Rutherford, the Penguins have added forwards David Perron, Patric Hornqvist, Nick Spaling, Blake Comeau Steve Downie, Daniel Winnik and Maxim Lapierre, defensemen Christian Ehrhoff, Ian Cole and Ben Lovejoy, and goalie Thomas Greiss.

"We feel we've strengthened our defense after going through the process of our forwards, getting more balance and depth up front," Rutherford said. "So this is our team."

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
