Penguins say Dupuis won't return this season

Monday, 03.23.2015 / 11:34 AM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis will not play again this season, general manager Jim Rutherford said Monday.

Dupuis has not played since being diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung Nov. 19.

Schneider thriving with heavy workload for Devils

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider would gladly trade his eye-catching statistics if it meant having an opportunity to participate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this spring.

Cory Schneider
Goalie - NJD
RECORD: 26-26-7
GAA: 2.16 | SVP: .929
Schneider's numbers in his first season as a No. 1 goalie appear good enough to have the Devils heading to the postseason. But even a 2.16 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage aren't good enough to overcome New Jersey's 2.21 goals-for average.

There are five goalies with a save percentage of .927 or higher at this point in the season, and four are playing for teams in the postseason hunt: Carey Price (.938) of the Montreal Canadiens, Cam Talbot (.929) of the New York Rangers, Devan Dubnyk (.927) of the Minnesota Wild and Pekka Rinne (.927) of the Nashville Predators.

Schneider, meanwhile, is on the outside looking in. He'll likely start his 62nd game Monday when the Devils play the Los Angeles Kings at Prudential Center (7 p.m. ET; NHLN-US).

The New York Rangers scored a season-high seven goals to defeat the Anaheim Ducks by a score of 7-2. The Rangers, who have won seven of their past eight games (7-1-0), are 46-18-7 (99 points) this season. The Rangers moved into a three-way tie with the idle Montreal Canadiens and Anaheim (in terms of standings points) at the top of the League standings. The Rangers, however, hold two and three games in hand and also own the ROW tiebreaker over both respective clubs (NYR: 42, MTL: 40, ANA: 38).

* The Rangers have allowed two goals or fewer in 10 straight games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Rangers have allowed two goals or fewer in at least 10 consecutive games for the first time since a span of 12 straight games from Feb. 20-March 18, 1971.


Monahan leading Flames' push to end playoff drought

Sunday, 03.22.2015 / 11:18 PM / NHL Insider

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- One by one, a young Sean Monahan would stand in the backyard of his Brampton, Ontario home and pick off fence board after fence board.
One by one, his father, John, would replace the damage to his fence.
"Probably eight or nine a week," Monahan said, flashing a sly, almost bashful smile. "Between throwing the lacrosse ball around and shooting pucks, all the time, the fence boards would be cracked in half or knocked out.
“I don't think anything drove me to do it. I just wanted to do it. I enjoyed shooting pucks. I think it was just the passion for the game. I always wanted to hold a hockey stick or lacrosse stick and it was something I enjoyed doing.

Penguins' Malkin skates, not ruled out for Tuesday

Sunday, 03.22.2015 / 10:32 PM / News


Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist skated Sunday, but it remains unknown when either will be back in the lineup, according to coach Mike Johnston.

Malkin has missed the past four games because of a lower-body injury; Hornqvist (undisclosed) has been out since March 15.

Johnston said he doesn't expect Hornqvist to be able to play when the Penguins face the St. Louis Blues at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday, but he didn't rule out Malkin.

"I still believe that [Malkin] might be a couple days ahead of Patric, but there's no set timeline on when they're going to play for sure," Johnston said, according to the Penguins website.
