Five different players had multipoint games for the New York Islanders in a 7-4 win against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Islanders improved to 31-14-1 (63 points) and passed the idle Detroit Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning for sole possession of first in the Eastern Conference standings. New York's seven goals matched a season-high from a 7-5 win against the Dallas Stars on Oct. 25, 2014, and the Islanders improved to 12-4-1 in their past 17 games.

* The Islanders have 31 wins through their first 46 games this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time the Islanders recorded 31 wins in their first 46 games was during the 1978-79 season (31-6-9). The Islanders are 16-4-0 at home this season. Elias says the last time they had 16 wins through 20 games on home ice was also during the 1978-79 season (16-0-4).

After trade from Bruins, Seguin loves role with Stars

The cowboy hat fit, so Tyler Seguin put it on and embraced the look.

"A hundred percent," Seguin told

This was Oct. 11, 2013, after Seguin, the Dallas Stars center, put the finishing touches on a four-point night at the Winnipeg Jets. He was talking to the media about his new start, his fresh start with a new team, when someone off-camera handed him a cowboy hat with a Stars logo on it.

The hat is the pseudo-trophy the Stars give out to their player of the game after wins. Vernon Fiddler started the tradition last season. Seguin was an easy choice that night in Winnipeg after Dallas' third game of the season, but it was his reaction that left an indelible mark that Stars general manager Jim Nill vividly recalls.

Seguin grabbed the hat and plucked it right down on his head. He smiled. He chuckled. He continued answering questions, but he could hardly get through the three-minute session with reporters without cracking up.

This was one of the first public signs of Seguin, Toronto-born and NHL Boston-bred, wrapping his arms around playing for the Stars.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Travis Hamonic could have chosen to go almost anywhere for a vacation during the upcoming 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend.

Bahamas, Bermuda, Miami? Nope. Hamonic is going home to Winnipeg, where the high temperature Wednesday is expected to be 16 degrees Fahrenheit, according to

The Islanders will enter 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend with 63 points, the most in the Metropolitan Division. They currently have the most points in the Eastern Conference, one more than the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Canadiens' Price ready for All-Star Fantasy Draft

Tuesday, 01.20.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

MONTREALCarey Price will be ready this time.

When the Montreal Canadiens goaltender participated in the NHL's All-Star festivities in Ottawa in 2012, Price's initial introduction to the people watching the fantasy draft was a shot of him taking a big gulp of his drink as Joffrey Lupul of the Toronto Maple Leafs called his name to join the team of captain Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins.

Price, looking like a kid who was caught sneaking some cookies before supper, put his drink down and scurried out of the room onto the stage, where he bowed before Lupul, posed for a photo and made his way into the seats, snubbing a handshake opportunity with his new captain and usual NHL rival Chara.

In the short history of All-Star fantasy drafts, it was one of the more memorable entrances on stage.

Fantasy All-Access: Second-half stars to watch

Matt Sitkoff - Contributor

Every Monday, contributor Matt Sitkoff identifies waiver wire pickups, roster trends, schedule notes and a prospect to watch in fantasy hockey.

The NHL's best will assemble in Columbus this week for the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports), but some past all-stars will not be there and those players could give you fantasy value down the stretch.

Jason Spezza of the Dallas Stars is a two-time all-star (2008, 2012 for the Ottawa Senators) and his career points per game go from 0.97 before the All-Star Game to 1.09 points per game after the game.

The recent hot play of the Colorado Avalanche's Jarome Iginla should continue as he has 416 points in 440 games (0.95 points per game) after the All-Star Game.


Canadiens' Price could return Tuesday vs. Predators

Monday, 01.19.2015 / 1:00 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price took part in practice Monday and said if he wakes up Tuesday morning feeling good he should be able to face the Nashville Predators that evening.

"We'll see in the morning," Price repeated at least four times when asked whether he will face the Predators.

Price missed the Canadiens' 6-4 win Saturday against the New York Islanders with an upper-body injury he sustained in a collision with Chris Calvert of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 14. Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty pushed Calvert from behind as he was breaking in on goal, and Price's back was driven into the goalpost in the ensuing collision.

"I had a lingering problem before that and this kind of compounded the issue," Price said. "We thought it best to just take a couple of days and get it better."

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
