Stars forward Peverley wants to return to play

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 9:31 PM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

DALLAS -- Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley said Friday he would like to return to the NHL if the time is right, but he'll need time to decide on his future as he recovers from a successful heart procedure.

"I feel great. I've gone back into my sinus rhythm (normal heartbeat) and I think under instructions of the doctors, I've been able to start working out and monitoring my heart rate," Peverley said in his first press conference since having the procedure last week at the Cleveland Clinic. "Going on the ice leisurely I think is something that shouldn't be a problem."

Peverley was able to take the ice Thursday for the first time since his procedure, which was to correct atrial fibrillation, the technical name for an irregular heartbeat.

"I went on the ice yesterday, and ultimately my goal would be to come back if it's the right time," he said.

Johansen enjoying breakout season with Blue Jackets

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- There was a plenty of buzz surrounding Columbus Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen following a 3-2 victory March 20 against the Montreal Canadiens.

Most people wanted to talk about the third-year player's first NHL fight when he squared off against Max Pacioretty early in the game and how Johansen would respond after wading into unknown territory.

The answer came with 3:01 left in regulation when he showed the skill and savvy that made him the No. 4 pick by the Blue Jackets in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Daily Primer March 28: Rangers head West

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The New York Rangers boosted their hopes of finishing second in the Metropolitan Division earlier this week with home victories against the Phoenix Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers. They'll get a different kind of test when they begin a four-game road trip Friday night with a game against the Calgary Flames (9 p.m. ET).

The Rangers (41-29-4) are three points in front of the Flyers as they begin their trip, which also includes games against the Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks and Colorado Avalanche. They've actually played much better on the road (23-13-0) than at home (18-16-4), and they are 3-2-0 in their past five visits to Scotiabank Saddledome.

Red Wings' Nyquist sees accelerated development

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 10:16 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The numbers are impressive when you break down the tear Gustav Nyquist is on right now.

The 24-year old Detroit Red Wings forward has 25 goals and 17 assists for 42 points in 47 games, but that's only the big picture. Narrowing the scope shows Nyquist, who was named the NHL first star this past week, has scored nine goals with one assist during a career-high six-game goal streak heading into a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday at Joe Louis Arena (7 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS, FS-D).

That's Detroit's longest of the season and it topped his own mark of four straight games during a hot spell that began Jan. 20 with a goal in a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. Since that point, Nyquist leads the NHL with 20 goals in 24 games, including his most recent two in a 4-2 loss Tuesday at the Columbus Blue Jackets. He's also tied during that span with Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux for most points in the League (31).

The Original Six franchises will get together in a rematch of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final as part of the NHL's 10-game schedule Thursday (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US).

The Detroit Red Wings continue their pursuit of a 23rd consecutive postseason appearance Thursday when they host the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS). Detroit (33-25-14) is one of four teams in the East with 80 points; Montreal is in second place in the Atlantic Division, two points ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning host the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Later Thursday the Vancouver Canucks aim for their fourth straight win when they face the Avalanche at Pepsi Center. The surging Canucks have moved within four points of the Phoenix Coyotes for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

The San Jose Sharks, who are two points ahead of the Anaheim Ducks in the Pacific Division and trail St. Louis by two for the conference lead, host the Winnipeg Jets at SAP Center. 

Here's a closer look at the action Thursday:

Rivalry Night Faceoff: Berube vs. Vigneault

Wednesday, 03.26.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Alain Vigneault came to the New York Rangers last summer with ideas for how to create a culture change off the ice and a new and improved team on the ice, using the slogan "Clean Slate." He had all of training camp and nine road games in October to work on creating the team he wanted before he stepped up behind the home bench at Madison Square Garden.

Philadelphia Flyers coach Craig Berube had to make his changes on the fly after he was named as Peter Laviolette's replacement three games into the regular season. After nine seasons as an assistant in Philadelphia, Berube had ideas too, but he knew for them to work he'd have to incorporate them slowly and carefully to try to get his struggling, fragile team back on a path to success.

Daily Primer March 25: Maple Leafs aim to end skid

Tuesday, 03.25.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Three games on the NHL schedule Tuesday night will have a significant impact on the Eastern Conference wild-card race for the Stanley Cup Playoffs: St. Louis Blues at Toronto Maple Leafs; Detroit Red Wings at Columbus Blue Jackets (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, FS-D, TSN2); and Los Angeles Kings at Washington Capitals.

The Maple Leafs face a daunting task as they attempt to end a five-game losing streak (0-5-0) when they host the Western Conference-leading Blues (103 points). If Toronto can't snap its skid, it's in danger of falling out of an Eastern Conference wild-card position.

Toronto and Detroit each has 80 points, but the Red Wings enter Tuesday in control of the first of two East wild-card spots because they've played two fewer games than the Maple Leafs.

Tuesday, 03.25.2014 / 1:56 AM / NHL Insider

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTONMontreal Canadiens goalie Peter Budaj did it to the Boston Bruins again on Monday night.

For whatever reason, Montreal's backup goaltender plays his best every time he gets the nod against the Bruins at TD Garden. Budaj held the fort early for the Canadiens, finished regulation and overtime with 28 saves and then stopped four shots in the shootout to help the Canadiens snap Boston's 12-game win streak with a 2-1 victory.

Gaborik still trying to fit in with Kings

Monday, 03.24.2014 / 11:50 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Darryl Sutter shrugs his shoulders and shakes his head when he's asked about the impact Marian Gaborik could have on the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Playoffs next month and possibly beyond.

Marian Gaborik
Right Wing - LAK
GOALS: 8 | ASST: 10 | PTS: 18
SOG: 72 | +/-: -1
It's possible he's playing coy, but Sutter, the Kings coach, repeatedly said after Los Angeles' 3-2 win Monday against the Philadelphia Flyers that he really doesn't know what to expect from Gaborik because he doesn't know him well enough yet.

"We just got him, and it's not easy for a player at the deadline to come in, it's not easy to come to a good team," Sutter said. "It's got nothing to do with the player. Quite honestly, I couldn't tell you. I really don't know."
