Reverent Daniel Sedin on cusp of passing Naslund

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 11:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Daniel Sedin doesn't consider himself as good a goal-scorer as fellow Swede Markus Naslund but is humbled to be mentioned with him as one of the best in Vancouver Canucks history.

Sedin needs one goal to reach 347 and pass Naslund to become Vancouver's all-time leading scorer.

Naslund scored his 346 goals in 884 games for Vancouver over 11-plus seasons. Sedin will play his 1,108th game at the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

"The night I matched him (with two goals in a 3-2 overtime win against the Florida Panthers on Jan. 11), I said he will always be the best goal-scorer, in my mind," said Sedin, who the Canucks selected with the second pick in the 1999 NHL Draft. "He did it in less games and had a better shot."

Analysis: Canadiens' problems bigger than no Price

Everything was supposed to be all right.

The Montreal Canadiens got forward Brendan Gallagher back from an injury and trounced their biggest rivals on the NHL's biggest regular-season stage.

It was, if you were to believe the words being spoken in the Canadiens dressing room after their 5-1 victory against the Boston Bruins in the Bridgestone 2016 NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 1, a potential turning point to what had been the very epitome of an up-and-down season.

Except with the Bruins coming to town to face the Canadiens on Tuesday at Bell Centre in a Winter Classic rematch (7:30 p.m. ET; NESN, RDS, SNE), everything is not all right in Montreal.

Molson Canadian builds rooftop rink in Toronto

TORONTO -- Molson Canadian is doing its part to bring the game of hockey to new heights, literally.

Last year, the beer company and NHL corporate sponsor built a professionally made rink in a remote area of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia to serve as the centerpiece and grand prize location of its #AnythingForHockey campaign.

This year, Molson Canadian chose an urban and airy setting for its #AnythingForHockey rink location, building a 100-by-45-foot rink 32 stories up on the rooftop at 120 Adelaide Street West in downtown Toronto, complete with breathtaking views of the city's skyline and netting to ensure pucks won't fall down to the street.

"Being up in the mountains last year, we had to find something just as epic," said Brock Hendricks, the U.S. associate brand manager for Molson Canadian. "We wanted to do something that has never been done before. We want to push the limits with hockey."

Ristolainen making big impression with Sabres

Sunday, 01.17.2016 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen has been a revelation for the Buffalo Sabres this season, breaking out in a big way and delivering on the potential that made him a first-round pick three years ago.

Ristolainen, 21, is a completely different player than the one who struggled last season in his first full tour of duty in the NHL. This season, he leads the Sabres in average time on-ice with 24:48 per game and tied his NHL career-high in goals when he scored his eighth of the season in a 3-2 win against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.

He already has a career-high in points (29) and is second in scoring on the Sabres behind forward Ryan O'Reilly, who is their representative in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game.

Johansen a winner in home debut with Predators

Sunday, 01.17.2016 / 12:15 AM / NHL Insider

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Center Ryan Johansen's home debut with the Nashville Predators was a success.

Johansen had an assist in 18:04 of ice time Saturday in Nashville's 3-0 win against the Minnesota Wild at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.

Johansen was traded from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 6 and had six points (two goals, four assists) in his first four games with the Predators; however, the Predators went 0-3-1 on a four-game road trip.

Johansen, who's been centering a line with rookie Kevin Fiala on left wing and James Neal on right wing, said he was relieved to be on the winning side for the first time as a member of the Predators.

Lundqvist gets 11th 20-win season to start career

PHILADELPHIA -- New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist sat at his locker after a 3-2 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday and talked about his luck.

He talked about how lucky he's been to have teammates help him and how lucky he's been to have coaches who have had the confidence to play him so often.

But there are 11 seasons' worth of New York Rangers players, coaches and fans who feel lucky to have had Lundqvist in net.

Lundqvist's win Saturday was his 20th of the season, making him the first NHL goaltender to start his career with 11 straight 20-win seasons. He also joined Hockey Hall of Fame member Tony Esposito and Martin Brodeur as the only goalies with 11 straight 20-win seasons at any point in their career. Lundqvist is the 15th goalie with at least 11 20-win seasons.

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.

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.

Blackhawks' Quenneville passes Arbour on wins list

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.
