Red Wings, Maple Leafs in Winter Classic preview


The Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will get an up close and personal scouting report on each other Saturday night in advance of the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

Both teams are struggling of late as they collide Saturday at Air Canada Centre (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, CBC) in the final meeting between the two clubs before they rendezvous again in front of more than 100,000 people at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Jan. 1, 2014.

The second episode of HBO's "24/7" series will air shortly after the conclusion of this game, which will likely earn a large amount of real estate during the series' third episode the following week.

Detroit entered a game Thursday night against the Calgary Flames at Joe Louis Arena with losses in six straight. The Red Wings have had losing streaks of seven and six games this season, and both have occurred in the past six weeks.

Injuries have wreaked havoc on the club, with as many as eight regulars missing games. The team's top two players, Pavel Datsyuk and captain Henrik Zetterberg, have both missed time, and both Zetterberg and starting goaltender Jimmy Howard remain out of the lineup.

In total, six of the team's nine best forwards are injured, plus Howard and top-four defensemanDanny DeKeyser.

Canada coach Brent Sutter told TSN Laughton reminds him of Mike Richards, whom Sutter had as captain of the 2005 World Junior Championship team that won the gold medal in Grand Forks, N.D.


Steen signing strengthens Blues' foundation

Thursday, 12.19.2013 / 4:14 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Alexander Steen's appreciation for Don Baizley went beyond a player-agent relationship.

Baizley, who represented many NHL players during a lengthy career, died this past summer from complications with lung cancer. He was 71.

Baizley represented Steen's father, Thomas, when he was a player for the Winnipeg Jets, and he also represented Steen, who signed his three-year extension to remain with the St. Louis Blues on Thursday. The contract pays Steen $17.4 million ($5.8 million average annual value), which includes $5.1 million in 2014-15, $5.8 million in 2015-16 and $6.5 million in 2016-17, and also includes a full no-trade clause that immediately kicks in as part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

But Steen, who maintained he was comfortable playing out the final year of a four-year, $13.45 million contract, wanted to honor his family friend and not get into any negotiations this past summer.


Ovechkin hits, scores his way to win for Capitals

Thursday, 12.19.2013 / 1:24 PM / Ford Tough Performance of the Week


Alex Ovechkin found a way to get himself quickly into the Washington Capitals' game against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday at Verizon Center.

Long before Ovechkin would score his NHL-leading 27th goal of the season in the final minute of the third period, rallying the Capitals from a three-goal deficit en route to a 5-4 shootout win, he displayed the other side of his game opponents must fear.

Jumping on the ice for his first shift 31 seconds into the first period, Ovechkin tracked the puck along the boards in his offensive zone, where it happened to be possessed at the time by forward Brayden Schenn of the Flyers. Schenn had his head down looking at the puck, and before he had time to decide what to do with it he was on the receiving end of a crunching check by Ovechkin, who sent Schenn to the ice and created a turnover.

Ovechkin would record five of the Capitals' 29 hits in the game. He also registered six shots and assisted on a power-play goal by Marcus Johansson.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
