Russia tops Switzerland to remain unbeaten at WJC

Sunday, 12.28.2014 / 8:55 PM / 2015 World Junior Championship

Goaltender Igor Shestyorkin made 32 saves to help Russia to a 7-0 shutout win against Switzerland at Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Sunday in a preliminary-round game of the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Russia (1-1-0-0) moved into second place with five points in Group B and trails Sweden by one point. Switzerland (1-0-0-1) dropped to third place in the group.

Shestyorkin (New York Rangers) was impressive in his first start of the tournament, holding his ground when Russia was outshot 14-4 in the second period.

Russian forward Pavel Buchnevich (Rangers) had one goal and two assists. Forwards Ivan Barbashev (St. Louis Blues) and Vladislav Kamenev (Nashville Predators) each had two points.

"It was a pretty tough game for us," Barbashev said, according to the IIHF website. "In the first period, we played really well. In the second period, we let up and took too many penalties, but we did a good job on penalty-killing. In the third, we played like in the first."

Sean Farrell - Correspondent

MONTREAL -- Max Domi is putting into practice for Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship advice he got as a youngster from family friends Mario Lemieux and Mats Sundin to shoot the puck whenever the opportunity is there.

Domi (Arizona Coyotes), the son of Tie Domi, scored for a second straight game at Bell Centre on Saturday and Canada recorded its second shutout win in two days with a 4-0 victory against Germany.

There really wasn't any question about him shooting when he put Canada up by three at 9:14 of the third period; the 19-year-old forward joyfully stuck out his tongue to celebrate after he scored on a back-door tap in off a no-look backhand pass from Sam Reinhart (Buffalo Sabres).

Derek Stepan scored a shorthanded goal, power-play goal and an even strength goal for his third career hat trick to power the New York Rangers to their eighth consecutive victory. Per Elias, Stepan is the first Rangers player to score three such goals in one game since Brendan Shanahan on Dec. 3, 2006 against the New York Islanders.

* Stepan is the second Rangers player in as many games to have a hat trick, following Rick Nash on Tuesday against the Washington Capitals. Per Elias, the last time the Rangers had a hat trick in two consecutive games was Jan. 31 and Feb. 2, 1994 (Mike Gartner vs. PIT; Adam Graves vs. NYI).

* Stepan has four goals and eight points on his five-game point streak and ranks fourth on the Rangers with 22 points (six goals, 16 assists) in 21 games this season.

* The Rangers have won eight consecutive games for the first time since an equal stretch from Dec. 27, 1974 to Jan. 11, 1975.

* In addition, the Rangers have earned at least one point in 12 straight games against Metropolitan Division opponents (11-0-1). Elias says this marks the first time the Rangers have earned a point in 12 straight divisional matchups since the NHL adopted the four-division format in 1974-75.

Year in review: Top 14 hockey moments in '14

Sunday, 12.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Corey Masisak - Staff Writer

Every year is filled with great games and great performances, but there are certain moments that stand out.

These moments can give fans goose bumps, or make them cheer and scream as loud as they can or even elicit tears. Whether it is a point in a game where the electricity of the sport wows everyone, or communal support in a time of tragedy, hockey brings people together.

Here are the top 14 hockey moments of 2014:

January 1: A sea of blue (and red) at the Big House

The anticipation for the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic centered largely on the venue. The NHL was going to play at Michigan Stadium, and a crowd of more than 100,000 was expected.

As the players stood and waited for the national anthems to be completed, the full scope of the spectacle set in. A record number of fans, half dressed in red for the Detroit Red Wings and half in blue for the Toronto Maple Leafs, sang the anthems and created a college-football like atmosphere as the snow fell in Ann Arbor. The Maple Leafs won in a shootout, and the images from the largest crowd to ever watch an NHL game were spectacular.


Devils focus on positives of unique coaching trio

Jon Lane - Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Game 1 under the New Jersey Devils' coaching triumvirate is in the books, and it yielded similar results to the previous 36 games played under former coach Peter DeBoer.

One day after firing DeBoer, Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello unveiled his three-man operation Saturday against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Adam Oates and Scott Stevens were added to the coaching staff to work behind the bench with Lamoriello, who is in a supervisory role for an undetermined about of time.

Although the tune was familiar, a 3-1 loss that dropped the Devils (12-18-7) to second-to-last in the Eastern Conference and 11 points out of the second wild-card spot, the vibe on the bench was positive.

"First of all, it was interesting watching and listening and seeing what was transpiring," Lamoriello said. "I thought it was extremely positive. The bench was extremely alive. We never got overly frustrated at any given time."


McDavid leads Canada past Germany at WJC

Saturday, 12.27.2014 / 10:27 PM / 2015 World Junior Championship

MONTREAL - Connor McDavid got his first goal in what appeared to him to be an eternity.

In reality, it was three games.

But McDavid's opening goal in Canada's 4-0 win against Germany at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship on Saturday was the first time he had experienced that thrill since Nov. 11, when he broke his hand in a game with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League, an injury that put his presence at this tournament in a little bit of jeopardy.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
