Blues' Oshie thankful for infant daughter's progress

Saturday, 04.05.2014 / 10:56 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- It's been quite a year for T.J. Oshie.

The St. Louis Blues right wing became an instant sensation after his shootout exhibition for the United States against Russia at the 2014 Sochi Olympics in which he scored four of six times during a 3-2 shootout victory. He became engaged to girlfriend Lauren Cosgrove and was soon a first-time father, when Cosgrove delivered the couple's first child, a girl named Lyla Grace, on March 17.

Those are moments people treasure for the rest of their lives, and Oshie will continue to make more memories with his daughter. There was a major obstacle at the beginning of her young life though.

While there were no complications with the actual birth of their firstborn child, Oshie and Cosgrove were immediately faced with a big challenge as parents - one that required surgery for their daughter.

Returning to Detroit makes trade easier for Legwand

Saturday, 04.05.2014 / 9:47 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Detroit Red Wings center David Legwand knows how fortunate he is. He understands how unique his situation is.

Players like Legwand, whose contract runs out after the season, get moved at the NHL Trade Deadline all the time. They quickly pack a bag and race from one town to the next to meet their new team, leaving their families, if they have one, behind. They get holed up in a hotel, eat their meals either out or by way of room service, speak to their kids on Face Time or Skype, immerse themselves in hockey and ride it out until the season ends.

They rarely get traded to the place they call home, the city where they grew up, but that's what happened to Legwand on exactly one month ago, when the Nashville Predators traded him to the Red Wings for forward Patrick Eaves, forward Calle Jarnkrok and a conditional 2014 draft pick.

Legwand, who was Nashville's first draft pick (No. 2 in 1998) and never played a game for a different organization until March 6, said the trade to his native Detroit has made a big difference in how quickly he has been able to assimilate into the Red Wings' way of life.

Daily Primer April 5: Stars need to shine

Saturday, 04.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

NHL.com

The Dallas Stars still have the inside track to the second Western Conference wild-card position in the Stanley Cup Playoffs because they have two games in hand on the Phoenix Coyotes. The challenge for the Stars is to turn those extra games into points, something they need to do Saturday night when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Dallas dropped one point behind Phoenix when the Coyotes lost 3-2 in a shootout to the Edmonton Oilers at home Friday. A victory against the Lightning would give the Stars a one-point lead with an extra game to play.

The Lightning are hungry for points as well. They are battling the Montreal Canadiens for second place in the Atlantic Division; the winner gets home ice when the teams meet in the First Round. The Canadiens defeated the Ottawa Senators 7-4 Friday to move two points ahead of the Lightning; Montreal hosts the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday (7 p.m.; NHLN-US, CBC, RDS).

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.

— Montreal Canadiens forward Tim Bozon on playing for the first time since his life-threaning illness
