Decade of Crosby-Ovechkin filled with highlights

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 12:00 PM / Sunday Long Read

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

In this special weekday edition of the Sunday Long Read to kick off the 2015-16 season, looks at the rivalry that has helped define the League for the past decade: Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals

Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin were in the spotlight, a place they have occupied individually throughout their hockey careers. This time, however, it was different. This time, they were sharing the attention, going head-to-head under the glare of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

This was a defining moment.

Weekes: Four goalies I wish I played against

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 10:00 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

This week, Weekes discusses the goalies he wish he had an opportunity to play against.

I was fortunate that I got to play against a lot of my heroes and a lot of the guys I idolized growing up.

Dominik Hasek, Martin Brodeur, Patrick Roy, Ed Belfour, Curtis Joseph and Roberto Luongo were a few of those players. I even had a chance to be teammates with Luongo and Brodeur.

I got to play in an era with some of the greats. However, there are many goalies I didn't get to face. Whether it was their style, their ability to come up clutch in the big game or their impact on the game, there are four goalies I wish I could have played against.

Canadiens' Price preseason pick to win Vezina

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Kevin Woodley - Correspondent

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is coming off a Hart Trophy season and has been described as a living how-to DVD for the position, so not putting him at the top of preseason predictions for another Vezina Trophy would be overthinking things.

Not only did Price lead the NHL in save percentage (.933), goals-against average (1.96) and wins (44) last season, but according to, he was at or near the top in even-strength save percentage (.943) and adjusted save percentage (.939), which weighs the quality of shots based on distance from the net.

The fact all were career bests suggests a correction is possible, and Price could take a step back this season, but watching how subtle tweaks under goaltending coach Stephane Waite have allowed him to improve the past two seasons, it seems just as possible Price could become the first goalie since Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils in 2007 and 2008 to win consecutive Vezina Trophies.

Five Questions: Stars' Ruff talks Benn, expectations

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

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

The latest edition features Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff:

Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff knows the potential of his new No. 1 line featuring Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Patrick Sharp. What he doesn't know is the type of chemistry that line can have, and how quickly it can come together.

Ruff didn't learn nearly enough in the preseason because Benn was limited to two games with the Stars being cautious about his recovery from multiple hip surgeries he had during the offseason.

Deep rookie class more than just McDavid, Eichel

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which begins Wednesday.

The 2015-16 NHL rookie class could wind up being one of the best in recent memory.

Heading the pack are Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid and Buffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel. The 18-year-olds forever will be linked after they were chosen first and second, respectively, in the 2015 NHL Draft, and each has been projected by scouts as a generational talent. They should be able to contribute immediately, and barring injury are expected to be in the running for the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year.

Sixteen familiar faces in new places for 2015-16

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which begins Wednesday.

Peter Laviolette and Barry Trotz are linked now and forever because the former replaced the latter as the Nashville Predators coach last season. What happened benefitted the Predators and Trotz's new team, the Washington Capitals. Laviolette, the second coach in Predators history after Trotz's 15 seasons there, brought the Predators to the Stanley Cup Playoffs with 104 points. Trotz guided the Capitals to 101 points and a playoff spot.

Neither the Predators nor the Capitals made the playoffs in the previous season. If they had, Trotz and Laviolette likely wouldn't have their link. Instead, they made immediate impacts in their new places last season.

Sharks name Pavelski captain; Thornton alternate

Monday, 10.05.2015 / 7:23 PM / News

Sean McCullen - Staff Writer

The San Jose Sharks named forward Joe Pavelski the ninth captain in their history Monday.

"Obviously, it's a huge honor. I'm excited to have an opportunity like this," Pavelski told the Sharks radio network. "It means a lot, but it really can't change anything about the player I am or what my game is going to be like. It's got to keep put the work in, try to get better every day, and, you know, perform. So, it's exciting."

San Jose did not have a captain last season, when it missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2002-03.

NBC's Emrick, Olczyk, McGuire ready for new season

Monday, 10.05.2015 / 6:57 PM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

David Satriano - Staff Writer

The 2015-16 NHL season begins on Wednesday and one of the most commonly used words when talking about it is "change," whether it be rookies, coaching or rules.

Seven of the 30 NHL teams have a new coach, which Pierre McGuire of NBC Sports Network said creates intrigue throughout the season.

"How's Jeff Blashill going to do in Detroit replacing Mike Babcock?" McGuire said of Blashill, the coach of the Detroit Red Wings after Babcock left for the Toronto Maple Leafs. "I think he's going to do fantastically well. How's Mike Babcock going to do replacing Randy Carlyle in Toronto? Nobody knows. How's Dan Bylsma going to do up in Buffalo in a rebuild, which I think will go amazingly well because of what they are doing there."

Eddie Olczyk, an analyst for NBC and NBCSN with McGuire and Doc Emrick, said in addition to the new coaches, some teams made improvements that could improve their chances of winning the Stanley Cup.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
