Penguins' Crosby delighted to regain scoring touch

Wednesday, 01.06.2016 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Throughout the early portion of this season, Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby vowed he would eventually convert on his scoring chances.

He said so after failing to score in his first five games. When Crosby scored five points in 11 October games and was held without a point in nine of those 11, it was said again. And when Crosby entered December with 15 points and five goals in 23 games, averaging .65 points per game when he had never been held under a point per game in his 11-year NHL career, he made the same promise.

Then, December came, and Crosby's shots began to go in.

After a 3-2 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday, the front end of a home-and-home series that will conclude at United Center on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports), Crosby has scored seven goals in his past 14 games; six in his past six games; five in his past four games.

Five things learned from final day of World Junior

Finland certainly has a flair for the dramatic in the IIHF World Junior Championship.

Forward Kasperi Kapanen, chosen in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins and later traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, scored off a wraparound 1:33 into overtime to give Finland a 4-3 victory against Russia in the 2016 WJC at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, on Tuesday.

It marked the second time in three years Finland celebrated a gold medal in overtime.

Finland defeats Russia in OT for World Junior gold

Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Kasperi Kapanen scored off a wraparound 1:33 into overtime to give Finland a 4-3 victory against Russia in the gold-medal game of the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, on Tuesday.

Kapanen, the 22nd pick in the 2014 NHL Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins and traded to the Maple Leafs on July 1, 2015, took a pass from Aleksi Saarela (New York Rangers) and beat Russian defenseman Sergei Boikov (Colorado Avalanche) in the right circle before curling the cage and tucking the puck just inside the left post for his second goal of the tournament.

The victory gives Finland its second gold medal in three years. Russia, which medaled for the sixth straight year, won a second straight silver medal.

Earlier Tuesday, the United States won bronze with an 8-3 win against Sweden.

Analysis: Drouin must focus on earning role in Tampa

Tuesday, 01.05.2016 / 3:48 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin reported to Syracuse of the American Hockey League on Tuesday. The only thing he needs to do now is try to play well enough to get himself back to the Lightning so he can try to earn his playing time in the NHL.

If Drouin focuses on anything else, particularly his ill-timed and ill-advised trade request, he'd be doing himself and his team a disservice.

Drouin's trade request, made public Sunday by his agent, Allan Walsh, is an unnecessary and impatient move from a player who still has a lot to prove in the NHL, a player who has scored six goals in 89 games and has 19 shots on goal in 19 games this season.

Judging by those numbers, the Lightning shouldn't have to justify sending a struggling 20-year-old player to the AHL to find his game. It should be as obvious as the fact that if the Lightning traded Drouin now, they wouldn't get near the return on their investment as they should.
