Unmasked: Goalie coach helps Price reach new level

Thursday, 04.09.2015 / 10:00 AM / Unmasked

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens is the favorite to win his first Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goaltender. He also is a leading candidate for the Hart Trophy as the League's Most Valuable Player.

Price is atop every key goaltending category, leading the League with 42 wins, a 1.93 goals-against average and .935 save percentage. His nine shutouts are tied for the League lead.

So rather than joining discussions about his candidacy for various end-of-season hardware, or where this season fits among all-time goaltending performances, Unmasked takes a closer look at the evolving skills that have set Price apart from his peers, particularly during the past two seasons.

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 10:22 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was scratched Wednesday to give him another night of rest.

The move came after coach Bruce Boudreau left open the possibility of Getzlaf sitting when he did not participate in the morning skate before Anaheim played the Dallas Stars at Honda Center.

It is the second straight game that Getzlaf has been scratched. Boudreau suggested after the Ducks' 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche last Friday that Getzlaf wasn't fully healthy, although Getzlaf has practiced in each of the past two days.

Red Wings' Cole out for season with spine contusion

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 3:26 PM / News

NHL.com

Detroit Red Wings forward Erik Cole said Wednesday he has been advised by doctors to sit out the remainder of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs because of a spine contusion.

Cole said he sustained the injury in the first period of an overtime loss against the Arizona Coyotes on March 24. He had missed the past eight games with what was termed a neck injury. The Red Wings acquired the veteran left wing in a trade with the Dallas Stars on March 1.

"I consulted with a few doctors last week and I've been advised not to play the remainder of this season," Cole said Wednesday, according to MLive.com. "Just really disappointing and I was looking forward to be a part of the playoff run here and helping this team make a run to the [Stanley] Cup and I'm not going to be able to do that.

"Doctors feel that right now there's just a little too much risk for me to be playing, so just going to have to wait and see how things go down the road."

Canadiens' Pacioretty could return for start of playoffs

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 12:58 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will miss the final two games of the regular season with an upper-body injury, but there is a possibility he will return in time for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, coach Michel Therrien said Wednesday.

"It's a heavy loss, we won't hide that," Therrien said after practice. "He's a guy that had quality ice time, not only offensively but defensively. At the end of games when we're up a goal, he's the guy we send on the ice. We used him on the penalty kill. But don't make the mistake of tossing him aside. There's a possibility he plays next week."

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.

— Sabres forward Jack Eichel on transitioning from college hockey to the NHL
