Derek Van Diest - NHL.com Correspondent

EDMONTON -- Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop sustained an upper-body injury and was forced to leave the game against the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place on Sunday night.

Bishop was replaced at 4:18 of the first period by Anders Lindback after giving up a goal to Oilers forward Jordan Eberle on the first shot he faced.

Following the goal, Bishop skated over to the Lightning bench to have his right hand looked at. After consultation with the Tampa Bay training staff, he went to the dressing room and did not return.


Canucks list Luongo as day-to-day with injury

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Roberto Luongo is day-to-day after he was injured Saturday night, Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella said Sunday.

Luongo did not serve as backup to Eddie Lack in a 4-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center and Vancouver signed Rob Laurie to a professional tryout contract to backup Lack, who made 45 saves.

Luongo was struck high by the leg of Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown in the third period Saturday when Brown crashed the net to score. Luongo stayed down for several moments after the hit, but stayed in the game.

Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis told reporters that it could be more than a day-to-day issue with Luongo. Lack said he was prepared to assume the No.1 role long-term.


Kings send Jones to AHL Manchester

Sunday, 01.05.2014 / 5:47 PM / News


The Los Angeles Kings have assigned goaltender Martin Jones to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, it was announced Sunday.

Jones, 23, made his NHL debut on Dec. 3 against the Anaheim Ducks and stopped 26 shots for his first victory. He followed that performance with consecutive shutouts on Dec. 7 against the New York Islanders (16 saves) and Dec. 10 against the Montreal Canadiens (31 saves).

Jones won his first eight NHL starts and became the second goaltender in League history to win his first eight games, matching Bob Froese of the 1982-83 Philadelphia Flyers. Jones was the first goalie to start and allow two or fewer goals in each of his first eight games since 1938-39 (Frank Brimsek/12-game streak).

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday afternoon for a hit on New Jersey Devils center Dainius Zubrus on Saturday night at First Niagara Center.

Myers received a two-minute minor for an illegal check to the head of Zubrus at 7:02 of the third period. Zubrus remained in the game.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

Buffalo won the game, 2-1.


Quick shows no rust in return with Kings

Sunday, 01.05.2014 / 12:36 PM / NHL Insider


For someone who hadn't played for seven-and-a-half weeks and 24 games, Jonathan Quick looked pretty sharp Saturday night.

Quick was supposed to spend the weekend on a rehab assignment with the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, as he recovered from a lower-body injury. But bad weather in the East forced a change in plans. Instead, Quick was activated from the injured reserve list and returned to the ice at Staples Center against the Vancouver Canucks.

The 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner looked sharp despite not seeing game action of any kind since he was injured on Nov. 12, stopping 27 shots in a 3-1 victory.

"If I was feeling rust, I wouldn't have told them I was ready to go," Quick said when asked about not having played since he went down during overtime of a game against the Buffalo Sabres.

He certainly didn't look rusty.


Daily Primer Jan. 5: Tough task for Canucks

Sunday, 01.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Southern California is a great place to visit this time of year, unless you're one of the 28 NHL teams that doesn't play there.

The Vancouver Canucks are one of those teams, and they'll try to avoid back-to-back weekend losses when they take the ice against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night.

The Canucks led 1-0 after two periods against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night, but L.A. kept firing and wound up with a 3-1 victory. Anaheim is 12 points ahead of Vancouver in the Pacific Division and hasn't lost in regulation in its 18 games at Honda Center this season.

Here's a look at all of the NHL action Sunday:


Hwangbo turns ambassador after North Korea escape

Sunday, 01.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, generally known throughout the world as North Korea, isn't a country where athletes typically get a chance to shine on the world stage.

The socialist republic holds elections but is considered one of the most ironclad dictatorships in the world. Known for its elaborate cult of personality, the country has been governed by a tyrannical family that entered its third generation with the inauguration of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un in December 2011. The grandson of "Eternal President" and republic founder Kim il-Sung, and son of Kim Jong-il, who governed for 17 years before his death in 2011, Kim Jong-un established a precedent for his reign in December when, in what was termed a purge of "counterrevolutionary factionalists,” he executed his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, for treason.

But there are some stories of hope, stories of people who managed to flee the country and make new lives for themselves. Hwangbo Young is one of those stories.


'24/7' finale focuses on Toronto's win in Winter Classic

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

While the first three episodes were about two teams struggling under the microscope, the finale of HBO's "24/7 Red Wings-Maple Leafs: Road to the NHL Winter Classic" was the story of how one team fought back from the adversity to ring in 2014 and start the second half of the season with the right foot forward.

With the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic as the featured game, HBO showed the snowy sights and offered some never-before-heard sounds of the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 shootout win against the Detroit Red Wings at Michigan Stadium on New Year's Day.

The win was the Maple Leafs' third in a row after they had lost seven of the first nine games played under the eye of HBO's watchful cameras. The loss was the Red Wings' second in a row and ninth in 12 games (3-6-3) with HBO following them around.

Not long after Tyler Bozak was shown scoring the shootout winner, narrator Liev Schreiber, playing off remarks made in his opening monologue from the first episode, talked about the striking differences between the Red Wings and Maple Leafs as they started the second halves of their season in the NHL's frigid outdoor event.

Carolina Hurricanes captain Eric Staal left the game Saturday night against the New York Islanders with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Rangers acquire Carcillo from Kings

Saturday, 01.04.2014 / 5:23 PM / News


The New York Rangers acquired forward Daniel Carcillo from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Carcillo skated in 26 games for the Kings and led the team with 57 penalty minutes to go with 54 hits and two points (one goal, one assist). He's played one game since Dec. 15, none since Dec. 23.

"We picked up a player than can bring an element of toughness, with us losing [Derek] Dorsett yesterday for 4-6 weeks it's an area we felt we needed to get a little bit better," coach Alain Vigneault said prior to the game Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. "Dan became available and we picked him up."
