Weekes: Condon, Raanta among game's best backups

Tuesday, 12.01.2015 / 9:20 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

This week, Weekes discusses the best backup goalies in the League.

How important are backup goalies? Last season Scott Darling was 3-1-0 with a 2.21 goals-against average and a. 936 save percentage in five games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and was a key contributor to the Chicago Blackhawks' championship when Corey Crawford was struggling.

And when Henrik Lundqvist missed nearly two months because of a vascular injury in his neck, Cam Talbot kept them afloat, going 16-4-3 with a 2.16 GAA, a .929 save percentage and two shutouts in 23 games and helping them win the Presidents' Trophy.

Five Questions: Tortorella on Johansen, his image

Tuesday, 12.01.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella:

He's been on the job almost six weeks, but Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella hasn't had much time to pick up his head and look around to take in his new surroundings.

Tortorella is so immersed in the job he took over on Oct. 21, after the Blue Jackets' 0-7-0 start, that his daily routine when at home is to make the short walk from his apartment to the rink so he can work for hours before going back home. That's it.

"I'm in this little apartment almost connected to the arena," he said. "We're diving in."

Tortorella's life in Columbus will change slightly next week, when his wife, Christine, arrives in town with the couple's four dogs. She is closing up their home in Stamford, Conn., to come live in Ohio for the rest of the season.

"Then we'll look to get out," Tortorella said.

Probably not too much, though. Tortorella feels he has enough work to do at the rink with the Blue Jackets to keep him occupied for more hours than there are in a day.

Eichel, Larkin set for first pro head-to-head matchup

Tuesday, 12.01.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

Dylan Larkin may have been overshadowed by Jack Eichel at their respective colleges last season, but that no longer seems to be the case as rookies in the NHL.

Larkin, selected in the first round (No. 15) of the 2014 NHL Draft by the Detroit Red Wings, is the first teenager to play for the Red Wings since Jiri Hudler in 2003-04. Larkin has spent the majority of the season on the top line with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader.

Eichel, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft by the Buffalo Sabres, has teamed with Larkin in the past with USA Hockey's National Team Development Program and with several United States teams at international tournaments.

On Tuesday, Larkin and Eichel will go head-to-head for the first time as professionals when the Red Wings face the Sabres at Joe Louis Arena (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, SNO, SNP, MSG-B, BELL TV, FS-D).

AHL Notebook: Penguins affiliate finding ways to win

Tuesday, 12.01.2015 / 3:00 AM / AHL Update

Patrick Williams - Correspondent

Even a 16-2-0-0 start does not mean avoiding some dicey moments along the way for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, American Hockey League affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Cruising to a 3-0 second-period lead against the rival Hershey Bears at home last Saturday, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton controlled the game against an opponent it had defeated 7-0 on the same ice surface two weeks earlier.

A Hershey goal with 14 seconds left in the second period made it 3-1. Then Penguins rookie goaltender Tristan Jarry allowed a soft goal 5:39 into the third. Suddenly the Bears had the home team in a bind.

Canadiens goalie Price to miss at least six weeks

Monday, 11.30.2015 / 5:32 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

BROSSARD, Quebec – The Montreal Canadiens are facing a stiff test and general manager Marc Bergevinis very eager to see the results.

Goaltender Carey Price will miss at least the next six weeks because of a lower-body injury that will not require surgery, the Canadiens announced Monday.

That six-week timeline ends Jan. 11, or 18 games from now on the Canadiens' schedule after Price already missed nine games while recovering from the same injury from Oct. 29-Nov. 22.

"What he needs is rest and treatment," Bergevin said. "It will take as long as it takes, but it's a minimum of six weeks."

Bergevin has no intention to acquire some goaltending help for the Canadiens, choosing to ride rookie Mike Condon as the starter. Instead, Bergevin wants to see how his team reacts to the adversity of missing Price and forward Brendan Gallagher, out at least another five weeks with two fractured fingers on his left hand.

The Canadiens had no injuries of major significance a season ago. They do now.

"We'll see what the character of this team is," Bergevin said. "I believe in our character, and every team in the NHL goes through periods without key players. Last season we were very lucky, but this year it will be a part of the evaluation of our character as a team. There's no need for us to panic over this."
