Daily Primer March 20: Pacific powers square off

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

First place in the Pacific Division is on the line Thursday night.

The San Jose Sharks' 8-2-1 surge following the 2014 Sochi Olympics has coincided with a so-so 4-3-2 stretch by the Anaheim Ducks, meaning that the team that skates off the ice at SAP Center with the victory will go home with the top spot in the division. Each team has 97 points, but the Ducks have a game in hand.

History is on the Sharks' side: They have won the past four games between the teams in San Jose and are 12-4-1 against the Ducks at home since the start of 2008.

Prospector Files: USHL draft-eligible All-Star team

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospector Files

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The selection of right wing Michael McCarron of the United States Under-18 National Team Development Program in the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft marked the ninth straight year at least one player from the United States Hockey League was among the top 30 picks.

As it turned out, 32 players competing in the USHL in 2012-13 were chosen last June, the most players selected from the league in one year. There's no question the USHL has been churning out NHL-caliber athletes in recent years; a total of 94 USHL alumni competed in the League in 2012-13. More than 300 players on USHL rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools and more than 200 are currently under NHL contract.

Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque reportedly changed his skate laces before every game and between each period.

Patrick Roy carefully laid out every piece of his equipment on the floor of the locker room before putting them on in a specific order, in addition to chatting up his goal posts during games. Joe Nieuwendyk apparently would sprinkle a bit of baby powder on his sticks before hitting the ice.

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds center Jared McCann, No. 11 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm list of the top North American skaters eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft, has his own superstition.

Dan Myers - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Other than the Minnesota Wild, who call the facility home, few teams at any level have played more games at Xcel Energy Center than the University of Minnesota.

The Gophers, the nation's top-ranked team, are 2-0 this season at the arena, which is located seven miles from campus this season and where they've played 33 times. Minnesota will headline the inaugural Big Ten Tournament beginning with first-round play Thursday afternoon in downtown St. Paul.

"It's been cool all season, playing in new rinks and against new teams," Gophers captain Nate Condon said. "It's setting the groundwork for what are going to be some really good rivalries and hopefully one of the best leagues in the country."

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
