Daily Primer Oct. 20: Ducks try to extend streak

Sunday, 10.20.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Anaheim Ducks are hitting the road after they host the Dallas Stars on Sunday. They'd like to take a seven-game winning streak with them.

The Ducks were routed 6-1 by the Colorado Avalanche in their season opener, but they haven't lost since. Anaheim's 3-2 shootout victory against the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday night was their sixth win in a row, and their fourth in as many games during their first homestand of the season.

After hosting Dallas, the Ducks play their next eight on the road; they don't return to Honda Center until they host Phoenix on Nov. 6.

Here's a look at Sunday's action:

Sunday Long Read: Tough decision, NHL or juniors

Sunday, 10.20.2013 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Hockey prodigies Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon have been virtually inseparable for the past two years. Now they have been forced apart by the decisions of NHL team executives and sent to opposite ends of the hockey spectrum.

Drouin and MacKinnon combined to lift Halifax to the top of the Canadian Hockey League during the past two seasons, and an assumption grew that they would be high first-round picks in the 2013 NHL Draft and begin a head-to-head battle at the NHL level that would last the better part of two decades.

But that duel must wait at least a year now after the unexpected decision by Tampa Bay Lightning management to send Drouin back to juniors before the 2013-14 regular season began.

Daily Primer Oct. 19: Penguins try to keep rolling

Saturday, 10.19.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Pittsburgh Penguins have wasted little time putting distance between themselves and the rest of the new Metropolitan Division. Less than three weeks into the season, they've piled up 12 points, tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings for the most in the Eastern Conference. Only two teams in their division, the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Islanders, are within eight points of Pittsburgh entering the weekend.

The Penguins play the first of 13 games on Saturday's schedule when they host the Vancouver Canucks (1 p.m. ET, NHLN-US).

Tapped In: Stars' Dillon on his game, musical passion

Saturday, 10.19.2013 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

Dallas Stars defenseman Brenden Dillon, 22, quickly is making his mark as a talented young defenseman in the NHL. But when the jersey and skates are hung up, Dillon soaks up life in Dallas. He's also pretty darn funny, has a great nickname, and is exactly the type of guy the Stars need.

Kathryn Tappen: Your nickname in the AHL was "Zeus"?

Brenden Dillon: The guys give it to me pretty good. I try to work out hard in the summer and eat healthy. I had my shirt off one day walking through the locker room and next thing you know, they were calling me Zeus from the movie "Hercules."

KT: So that should be a compliment, no?

BD: (laughs) I guess so.

KT: What was your "Welcome to the NHL" moment?

Ducks' rookie Lindholm steps right into lineup

Saturday, 10.19.2013 / 1:55 AM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Ask Hampus Lindholm who he patterns his game after and he ticks off his list: Kenny Jonsson, his former Swedish club assistant coach and a longtime NHL player. Nicklas Lidstrom. Erik Karlsson. Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

Forgive Lindholm if one of those names isn't Hall of Fame defenseman Scott Niedermayer, who coaches Lindholm with the Anaheim Ducks. Lindholm says he admires Niedermayer, but it's understandable that the 19-year-old isn't as familiar with the North American game, considering he's played it for less than a year.

But the adjustment so far has gone well for Lindholm and the Ducks.

Lindholm, the sixth player taken in the 2012 NHL Draft, is playing on Anaheim's top defensive pairing with Francois Beauchemin. He has two assists and a plus-9 rating through five games and averages 19:11 of ice time per game, including 3:24 on the power play.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
