Around the League notebook for Thursday, Nov. 13

Friday, 11.14.2014 / 8:46 AM / News


The trio of Jaden Schwartz (0-1—1), Vladimir Tarasenko (1-1—2) and Jori Lehtera (0-2—2) combined for five points and Paul Stastny potted the game-winner with just under six minutes left in regulation to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 4-3 win against the Nashville Predators, their ninth win in their past 10 games (9-1-0). Recently dubbed the 'STL Line', Schwartz, Tarasenko and Lehtera have combined for 16 goals, 38 points and a plus-31 rating during the Blues' past 10 games.

* Tarasenko stretched his point streak to a career-long seven games (6-6—12); he now has seven multipoint games this season and 23 in his career (118 GP). Tarasenko is tied with Phil Kessel for fourth in League scoring (10-11—21).


Blue Jackets' Hartnell craving win against Flyers

COLUMBUS -- Having spent seven seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers before being traded in June to the Columbus Blue Jackets, left wing Scott Hartnell laughed when asked what kind of reception he expects Friday in his return to Wells Fargo Center.

"It's Philly, man," he said. "I'm sure I'll get a round of applause, but the way I play a lot of cities don't like me. That means I'm doing a good job in that way.

"If I run over (Claude) Giroux first shift I'm sure I'll get some boos."

Hartnell may or may not be jesting about taking a run at his former linemate, but if that would create a spark for the slumping Blue Jackets (4-10-1) then he would gladly risk the wrath of the fans that used to cheer him in exchange for a long-sought victory.


Super 16: Predators' Forsberg emerges from '12 class

The Nashville Predators have lacked dynamism at the forward position for years, but they appear to have bolstered the group significantly in that department this offseason.

One move was obvious, adding James Neal in a trade for Patric Hornqvist. Maybe Neal won't score 40 times without Evgeni Malkin feeding him the puck, but he's still scoring plenty on Nashville's top line.

The other "addition" came from within. Filip Forsberg had a goal and five points in 13 games last season with Nashville, at times looking like a tantalizing prospect and others looking like a guy not ready for the NHL. If it weren't for Vladimir Tarasenko, Forsberg might be the breakout star of the 2014-15 season to date.


Forsberg's compete level drove Hall of Fame career

Talk to anyone that was around Peter Forsberg during his playing days and one word comes up repeatedly.


"He's so competitive and he hates losing more than anyone I know," said former NHL star Markus Naslund, who grew up in Sweden playing with and against Forsberg. "He would do anything he could to be the difference."

"He was a true competitor," former teammate Rob Blake said. "Always beat up physically, but when the game started he was ready."

"I think just how competitive he was," said Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist, one of many young Swedes who grew up idolizing Forsberg. "Something that I took from him was I could see three guys be on him, and he would still hang on to the puck."

Forsberg's competitiveness was one element of a stellar career that has earned him enshrinement in the Hockey Hall of Fame. He'll join Blake, Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, Pat Burns and Bill McCreary when the 2014 induction ceremony is held Nov. 17 at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.


Bruins keep cool, but can't defeat Canadiens

MONTREAL -- It's not easy to pull a positive out of a 5-1 loss, particularly when it comes on the heels of a 6-1 loss.

But if there is one glimmer of good for the Boston Bruins coming out of another loss to the Montreal Canadiens, it would be that this time, they didn't beat themselves.

They just got beat. Badly.

The Bruins had a 1-0 lead after one period Thursday before the Canadiens scored the next five goals on the way to their eighth win in the past nine regular-season games against Boston.

Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray disclosed that he has Stage 4 colon cancer during an interview that aired Thursday night on TSN.

"There is no cure at this point for me," Murray told Michael Farber in the TSN interview. "The word is that we'll keep doing chemo and hopefully reduce the tumors and the effect and I'll get some time out of that."

I got a chance to play a thousand games and that's pretty special to me. To get a thousand [points], it's a great accomplishment. I'm not going to hide my feelings, I'm proud of that. To do it on a win, do it on a goal, I think it makes it special.
