Blackhawks-Rangers starts Wednesday Night Rivalry

Wednesday, 10.07.2015 / 12:36 PM / Tale of the Tape

John Kreiser - NHL.com Managing Editor

The Chicago Blackhawks begin their defense of the Stanley Cup when they host the New York Rangers in the first Wednesday Night Rivalry game of the 2015-16 season (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

Chicago is coming off its third championship in six seasons after defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning to win the Final in six games. The Rangers, who won the Presidents' Trophy as the best regular-season team in 2014-15, were one victory away from playing the Blackhawks but lost to the Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Blackhawks made several changes from their Cup-winning team but still have their championship core, including center Jonathan Toews, defenseman Duncan Keith and goaltender Corey Crawford. The Rangers made fewer alterations; the biggest change was the retirement of forward Martin St. Louis, whose 52 points were fourth on the team in 2014-15.

Jagr still going strong on 25th anniversary of first goal

Wednesday, 10.07.2015 / 12:17 PM / NHL Insider


At 18 years old and playing his second NHL game, Jaromir Jagr scored his first NHL goal when the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the New Jersey Devils 7-4 at Pittsburgh Civic Arena 25 years ago today.

A quarter-century later, Jagr, 43, is entering his second season with the Florida Panthers, and 22nd in the NHL.

Parked in front of the Devils net on Oct. 7, 1990, Jagr scored off the rebound of defenseman Jim Johnson's shot from the point. In goal for the Devils was Chris Terreri, currently the Devils' goaltending coach.

Oilers' McDavid sees hard work pay with NHL debut

Wednesday, 10.07.2015 / 12:12 PM / NHL Insider

Derek Van Diest - NHL.com Correspondent

EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid may be the most anticipated player to join the NHL in 10 years, but few are as excited about his upcoming debut than he is.

Not since Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby entered the League in 2005 has a player generated as much interest as McDavid, who will play his first regular-season game with the Oilers on Thursday at the St. Louis Blues (8 p.m. ET; SN360).

"It's something that you dream of for so long," McDavid said. "The draft is one thing, but to finally be in this situation is another, so I'm really excited. It's been a long road; it's been a lot of hard work. I think a lot of guys' stories are different in how they get here, but the one common theme is hard work and my story is not any different that way. I put in a lot of hours to be here and I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to it for my family and for them to enjoy it. I know my dad and mom are going to be very proud and it's going to be great experience."

Crystal ball has answers for 2015-16 questions

Wednesday, 10.07.2015 / 10:40 AM / 2015-2016 Season Preview


The 2015-16 NHL season starts Wednesday and is full of interesting storylines.

Instead of waiting until it ends nine months from now, we decided to look into the future and do some prognosticating. We asked NHL.com senior writer Dan Rosen to channel his fortune-telling powers and use his answers to shed some light on eight telling questions about the upcoming season.

Here are the answers:

1. Will Phil Kessel score 50 goals in his first season with the Pittsburgh Penguins?

Though it's hard to predict a player will score 40 goals, let alone 50, because of how difficult it is to reach those numbers, let's remember that Kessel scored 37 goals two seasons ago playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs with Tyler Bozak as his center. This is not a knock on Bozak by any means, but you won't find anyone anywhere willing to compare him to Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.

Flames eager to build on success from last season

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 5:54 PM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- The narrative around the Calgary Flames has changed dramatically in 12 months.

One year ago, the Flames were among the teams expected to be near the bottom of the NHL standings and contend for a lottery pick. But on the eve of the 2015-16 season, expectations are that Calgary can contend for the Pacific Division title and make another run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

That is the power of a 97-point performance last season and a trip to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in 11 years.

The Flames are ready to pick up right where they left off. The quest begins Wednesday when Calgary hosts the 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off, an all-day hockey festival before the Flames open their season at Scotiabank Saddledome against the Vancouver Canucks (10 p.m. ET; Sportsnet, TVA Sports 2).

The organization is pumped up for the new season.

Brodeur 'at peace' with how playing career ended

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 5:31 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Retired NHL goaltender Martin Brodeur has no regrets over how he ended his career after setting numerous records and winning three Stanley Cup championships as a member of the New Jersey Devils.

In Brodeur's eyes, playing the final seven games of his career with the St. Louis Blues was all part of his incredible journey.

"You know what, I'm at peace with that decision," Brodeur told NHL.com. "Looking back, I have zero regrets in how I closed out my career. In the perfect storm finishing up as a member of the Devils would have been great but I never thought it would happen that way, never saw it coming."

The Devils announced Tuesday they will retire Brodeur's No. 30 on Feb. 9 at Prudential Center; a statue of Brodeur will also be built outside Prudential Center in Championship Plaza.

Canadiens pit continuity against new-look Maple Leafs

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 4:00 PM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs will raise the curtain on the 2015-16 NHL season Wednesday at Air Canada Centre on opposite ends of the team-building spectrum.

The Maple Leafs offseason was defined by change, as it should be for a team that finished 27th in the overall standings last season. The expectations in Toronto are modest, looking to take the first step on what appears to be a long journey back toward the Stanley Cup Playoffs and, eventually, the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1967.

The Canadiens, on the other hand, sought continuity, making minimal personnel changes and looking to build on three straight playoff appearances by adding a fourth, one they can legitimately hope will end with new captain Max Pacioretty raising the Stanley Cup.

The contrast between the NHL's two oldest and most iconic franchises is striking, and it will be on full display Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; SN, TVA Sports) as the Maple Leafs look to establish the type of team identity the Canadiens already seemingly have.
