Tuesday, 02.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Chicago Blackhawks and U.S. right wing Patrick Kane:

SOCHI -- Patrick Kane spent Monday, an off day for the United States players, tooling around Olympic Park on a bicycle and spending some time with his family at the NHL Players Association's headquarters here.

The free time gave him a chance to reflect on what had transpired in the first week at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and contemplate what lies ahead for the Americans, who play Wednesday in the quarterfinals against either Slovakia or the Czech Republic.

The U.S. won Group A and finished second in the preliminary round with three wins and eight of a possible nine points. Kane has three assists but no goals, and only nine shots on goal.

He sat down with NHL.com to discuss his thoughts about his play in the Olympics, how the U.S. team is feeling and what his experience in Sochi has been like.

Here are Five Questions with … Patrick Kane:

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Minnesota Wild left wing and United States captain Zach Parise:

SOCHI -- Zach Parise has been answering questions about elation and deflation for four years. It's been long enough.

Parise, the captain of the United States men's hockey team in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, got on the Olympic ice Monday night local time for the first time since Feb. 28, 2010, when he and the rest of his American teammates dejectedly skated off the ice in Vancouver with silver medals around their necks and the realization that what once was considered a far-fetched dream had come within one shot from becoming a reality.

Five Questions: Backes set for another run at gold

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features St. Louis Blues captain and U.S. Olympic center David Backes:

David Backes has a second chance at what he always envisioned as a once in a lifetime opportunity.

As much as Backes, the captain of the St. Louis Blues, is preparing for three more games at Scottrade Center before the NHL's Olympic break, he's also thinking about boarding his flight out of Newark, N.J., to Sochi, Russia on Sunday. After winning the silver medal as the United States' tough-guy center in 2010, Backes is now part of the leadership core for the team that will wear the red, white and blue in the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

He won't have a letter on his sweater (those belong to captain Zach Parise and alternates Ryan Suter and Dustin Brown), but if the Americans make a run at gold later this month Backes will most certainly be a big part of it.

Five Questions: Jets' Maurice finds fast success

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice:

He's seven games into his tenure as the coach of the Winnipeg Jets and so far it's been all good for Paul Maurice.

The Jets are 6-1-0 since Maurice replaced Claude Noel. They've scored 24 goals and allowed only 13. They became the first team this season to beat the Anaheim Ducks in regulation at Honda Center. Their lone loss was a 1-0 defeat on the road against the San Jose Sharks. They're coming off what can only be described as a huge and surprising 3-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center on Sunday.

Chicago outshot Winnipeg 27-6 through 40 minutes but Jets goalie Al Montoya was spectacular and Winnipeg found some breaks in the third to get the win. Andrew Ladd scored the winning goal around two from Blake Wheeler.

After being out of the NHL for more than two years Maurice clearly has a lot to talk about now. We gave him the opportunity.

Here are Five Questions With … Paul Maurice:

As the League motors into the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series portion of the 2013-14 regular season, Collins is confident in saying it has recovered from the lockout that wiped away a portion of the 2012-13 season.

The latest edition features Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau:

Bruce Boudreau may very well be the envy of the hockey coaching world right now.

His Anaheim Ducks are the hottest team in the NHL and have opened a 13-point lead in the Pacific Division, arguably the best division in the League. The Ducks have a five-point lead on the Chicago Blackhawks in the Presidents' Trophy race. They have won 17 of their past 18 games and are just about unbeatable at home with a 19-0-2 record at Honda Center this season.

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features New York Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek:

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- New York Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek has a lot coming up in the months ahead, including the 2014 Sochi Olympics and his pending unrestricted free agency. The last thing he needed was to be struggling on the ice as the calendar flipped to 2014.

No worries there.

Vanek enters the game Tuesday at the Toronto Maple Leafs riding a nine-game point-scoring streak that dates back to Dec. 20. He has five goals and nine assists during the streak, including the two assists he had in New York's 7-3 win against the Dallas Stars on Monday.

After sitting out with an injury in early November that marred his start with the Islanders, Vanek has found his game while skating on the team's top line with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo. The Vanek-Tavares-Okposo line is one of the best lines going in the NHL right now with a combined 72 points in the past 22 games.

The latest edition features Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne:

NEWARK, N.J. -- Teemu Selanne isn't wavering.

This is Selanne's last season as a player in the NHL. His body is telling him so. Unfortunately, so far his production is also saying the same thing to him.

Selanne entered the Anaheim Ducks' game Monday with 11 points in 29 games, though he does have four points in his past three. He has been a healthy scratch four times by design (all in games after the Ducks played the night before) and he missed three games with an injury.

The latest edition features Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard:

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock has played goalie Jonas Gustavsson ahead of Jimmy Howard in three out of the four games the team has played this month. It's hard to blame him.

The one time Howard was in he allowed five goals in a 6-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Red Wings went 2-1-0 and yielded five goals in total in Gustavsson's three starts.
