Holtby's chase of history buoys Capitals to NHL lead

Friday, 01.15.2016 / 11:36 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby is chasing some lofty personal records and pulling his team along in the wake.

Holtby extended his personal point streak to 22 consecutive decisions with a 4-1 victory against the Vancouver Canucks at Verizon Center on Thursday. He is now one game short of tying the franchise record set by Jose Theodore, who went 20-0-3 from Jan. 13 to April 9, 2010.

Holtby started his point streak on Nov. 12 and has gone 20-0-2. Holtby won his 129th game with the Capitals on Thursday to pass Don Beaupre for second place on the franchise win list. Olie Kolzig holds the franchise mark with 301 wins.

Holtby can match the streak by Theodore this weekend as the Capitals travel to face the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; CSN-DC +, MSG-B, BELL TV) and host the New York Rangers on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NHLN, TVA Sports, MSG, CSN-DC). It is unclear if Holtby will start Saturday or Sunday.

New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano, New Jersey Devils coach John Hynes and Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan were among five assistants named Friday to the staff of Team USA for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Nashville Predators assistant coach Phil Housley and Scott Gordon, coach of Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League, were also named assistants to Team USA coach John Tortorella.

"I'm looking forward to working with our coaching staff in guiding the group of players that are ultimately selected to represent our country in the World Cup," Tortorella, coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets, said in a release by USA Hockey. "We have a group of coaches assembled that all bring something different to the table and that is a real positive as we move toward our ultimate goal of winning the tournament."

12 marquee players seeking second-half turnarounds

It happens every NHL season, and sometime around mid-November people start to notice to star players who are off to slow starts.

By the time December rolls around, those slow starts begin to become slow seasons.

As we move through the early stages of the second half of the 2015-16 season, there are a number of players around the League who are attempting to overcome a poor first half and prove it was just an anomaly and that their production is not starting to decline.

Canadiens' Gallagher breaks down NFL playoffs

Friday, 01.15.2016 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Brendan Gallagher - Special to NHL.com

Montreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher showed the hockey world during "EPIX presents Road to the Winter Classic" how big of a football fan he is, and more specifically how devoted he is to the Cincinnati Bengals. With his beloved Bengals out of the NFL playoffs, Gallagher has agreed to share his thoughts and his picks on NHL.com for the remaining playoff games and the Feb. 7 Super Bowl.

Gallagher’s first installment this week explains how he became a Bengals fan and how he experienced their gut-wrenching loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday.

When I first started getting into the NFL it was Chad Johnson's breakout year. He was taking the league by storm with his touchdown celebrations, and as a young kid I thought they were pretty funny to watch. I kind of enjoyed the fact when I was younger that no one else cheered for the Bengals so I picked them as my team and I've stuck with them ever since. I just love them more and more as the years go on.

That's what made the Bengals' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL playoffs last week so devastating.

Super 16: Kings benefit from extra saves, OT success

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The sentiment is heard in arenas across the NHL when the standings and the races for the Stanley Cup Playoffs are brought up:

The Los Angeles Kings are back.

But how? Why?

The Kings are set to return to the playoffs this season, likely as the Pacific Division winner, after missing last season. They're on pace for 111 points, 16 better than they had last season, when they missed the playoffs by one point.

Blackhawks' Kane leads Hart Trophy race at midpoint

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Right wing Patrick Kane has scored or assisted on 48.5 percent of the Chicago Blackhawks' 130 goals this season. Other players have meant a lot to their teams this season, but no one has come close to what Kane has meant to the Blackhawks.

Kane, with his NHL-best 63 points, is leading the race for the Hart Trophy as the League's most valuable player.

By comparison, Kane was tied for the League lead with 64 points when he broke his clavicle last season. That was through 61 games, or three quarters of the season. This season, Kane is on pace for 45 goals and 112 points. He's never had more than 30 and 88 in a season.

Blackhawks' Quenneville passes Arbour on wins list

Friday, 01.15.2016 / 12:31 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Joel Quenneville never planned for this to happen, even though it appears he was born to do it.

As Quenneville was nearing the end of his 803-game NHL playing career with the Hartford Whalers, he began working as a retail broker.

"Getting ready for the real job," Quenneville said.

Little did he know at the time, but Quenneville actually had been preparing for his real job for years. And now he is the second greatest person to do that job in the history of the NHL.

Quenneville got his 783rd victory as an NHL coach Thursday when the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 at Bell Centre, about 140 miles southwest of where Quenneville first worked as an NHL assistant coach with the Quebec Nordiques in 1994-95.

The win moved Quenneville past Al Arbour into second place on the NHL's all-time list, leaving only Scotty Bowman ahead of him. Bowman's total of 1,244 victories is practically untouchable, and Quenneville knows the likelihood of him getting another 461 wins to catch him is minimal.

Bossy rides railroad to see Rangers play Islanders

A group of fans traveling to Barclays Center on Thursday to watch the New York Islanders host the New York Rangers for the second time this season were in for a treat when they ran into former Islanders great Mike Bossy on the Long Island Rail Road.

Bossy played 10 seasons for the Islanders (1977-87) and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1991. The LIRR has become a popular form of transportation for Long Islanders traveling into Brooklyn now that the Islanders no longer play their home games at Nassau Coliseum.

Fantasy top 30 goalies: Allen out; Blues turn to Elliott

Every Thursday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey staff writer David Satriano provides in-depth goalie analysis. From updated weekly top 30 rankings to trending players and more, Satriano is your go-to guy for fantasy goalie advice all season long.


Jake Allen was having an MVP-type season for the St. Louis Blues before he sustained a knee injury in the second period of a 4-3 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. He was 18-10-3 with a 2.17 goals-against average, .924 save percentage and five shutouts, and clearly carrying the load.

But now Allen (86 percent owned in Yahoo leagues) is considered week-to-week with a knee injury, which means Brian Elliott, who has been with the Blues for five seasons and has seen his share of being a No. 1, a backup and in a timeshare, will get a bulk of the starts.
