Bruins goalie Rask earns tribute in insect form: report

Tuesday, 02.24.2015 / 10:35 AM / News

NHL.com

Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask already has reached hockey immortality with his name being engraved on the Stanley Cup.

Now he's carved his name into the pantheon of a whole other realm.

A new species of wasp, discovered in the Teita Hills of Kenya, has been named Thaumatodryinus tuukkaraski, in honor of Rask, according to the Boston Globe. The finding will be published in the April edition of the scientific journal "Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae."

"This species is named after the acrobatic goaltender for the Finnish National ice hockey team and the Boston Bruins, whose glove hand is as tenacious as the raptorial fore tarsus of this dryinid species," the authors wrote in the paper.

Five Questions: Wild GM Fletcher willing to deal

Tuesday, 02.24.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher is heading into the final days before the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline on March 2 at 3 p.m. ET with an eye on adding to the depth of the hottest team in the League.

"If we can add a piece, whether it's up front or on the blue line, we'll do that," Fletcher told NHL.com.

The Wild are 13-2-2 in 17 games since Fletcher acquired goalie Devan Dubnyk from the Arizona Coyotes for a third-round draft pick; they were 18-19-5 through 42 games.

Dubnyk has won each of those 13 games in 16 starts with a 1.64 goals-against average, a .946 save percentage and five shutouts. The Wild have climbed into the second wild-card position in the Western Conference after being eight points out and last in the Central Division after a 7-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Jan. 13. Their 6-1 win against the Dallas Stars on Sunday put them inside the top-eight for the first time since Nov. 24.

The Wild's hot stretch has changed Fletcher's mindset. If the deadline was a month ago Minnesota would have been a seller; now it hopes to be a buyer.

Heavy workload, positive results for Hurricanes' Faulk

Tuesday, 02.24.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Kurt Dusterberg - NHL.com Correspondent

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk has made a habit of outpacing expectations. It started his freshman year at University of Minnesota-Duluth.

"He was very good as a freshman, pretty dominant for an 18-year-old kid," Minnesota-Duluth coach Scott Sandelin said. "He had the physical tools, he could skate, he had a good shot. By Christmas, I thought we might not keep him for more than a year just based on how he played."

Sandelin was right. Faulk helped Minnesota-Duluth win the 2011 NCAA Championship, then moved on to the NHL, where he was named to the NHL's All-Rookie Team in 2012. He was a U.S. Olympian in 2014 and NHL All-Star in January. It's a pretty solid hockey resume for a 22-year-old, but Faulk would prefer to take age out of the equation.

Eichel helps Boston University win Beanpot

Tuesday, 02.24.2015 / 12:52 AM / NCAA Update

Connor Mellas - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Jack Eichel didn't score the game-winning goal, but the Boston University forward helped his school win its first Beanpot Tournament in six years on Monday.

Eichel helped draw the hooking penalty that put B.U. on an overtime power play, then fought to dig a puck out of the corner. His teammates took care of the rest.

Captain Matt Grzelcyk scored 51 seconds into the extra period to give the Terriers a 4-3 victory against Northeastern University and their first Beanpot Championship since 2009.

Grzelcyk, a junior defenseman, led B.U. with two goals and was named Beanpot MVP.

Bruins center Krejci out 4-6 weeks with knee injury

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 6:28 PM / News

NHL.com

Boston Bruins center David Krejci will miss 4-6 weeks with a partially torn MCL in his left knee, the Bruins announced Monday.

Krejci was injured in the second period of a 5-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues last Friday while checking Alexander Steen.

"It's a big loss when you lose a player of his caliber," linemate Milan Lucic told the Boston Globe on Saturday. "He's been an important player for us for the last number of years. He's definitely one of those guys that's hard to replace. At the end of the day, you still have a job to do. You still have to do it well. Just because one guy's out of the lineup, [it] can't change the whole focus of the team, the psyche of the team, or the psyche of one player as a linemate. That just means you have to find new chemistry with guys, work a little harder to find that, and hope that it comes."

Quenneville: Blackhawks not hitting panic button yet

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 4:18 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- They've lost three straight games and five of the first seven during an eight-game homestand, but the Chicago Blackhawks haven't hit the proverbial panic button.

Asked after practice on Monday if the Blackhawks had started to panic a little with 22 games left, coach Joel Quenneville quipped, "No, but the 'Get Attention' button is where I'm at."

His answer was met with a tongue-in-cheek follow up question, and it provided a good assessment of Quenneville's outlook at the moment.

"Do you have one of those?" a reporter said.

"Absolutely," Quenneville replied, jabbing his index finger in front of him. "I got it pushed."

Quote of the Day

I always feel the pressure to produce offensively. It's disappointing and frustrating when you can't help out your team the way you're supposed to.
