Devils look forward after ending shootout drought

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 8:57 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The huge sigh of relief coming from New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer was palpable as he stepped to the podium at his postgame press conference to discuss a rare shootout victory.

When asked if a huge weight had been lifted off his shoulders, DeBoer smiled.

"I think that's an understatement," he said.

Jacob Josefson made it possible when he scored on his second-round attempt for what proved to be the only goal of the tiebreaker in a 2-1 victory against the Winnipeg Jets at Prudential Center on Thursday. The win snapped an NHL-record 18-game losing streak in the shootout for the Devils; their last shootout victory came March 10, 2013, also against Winnipeg.

Playing experience guided Shapiro in 'Hockey Saint'

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

Playing three years of high school hockey, Howard Shapiro discovered a few things about himself and what he wanted to become. Although Shapiro said he wasn't very good, hockey taught him lessons that he applied to his life and opened creative doors to what would be a series of books on how the game brings people closer together.

"Those three years of being a really bad player, the game itself taught me so much, things I was able to learn from playing that I applied in school and in my professional life. And friendships that last to this day," Shapiro said.

Since playing professional hockey was out of the question, Shapiro became an accountant and author. His latest release is his first hockey graphic novel, "The Hockey Saint." It's the story of 21-year-old Jeremiah Jacobson, the world's best hockey player but unprepared for the scrutiny of stardom, and his evolving friendship with college player Tom Leonard, an average sophomore trying to find his place in the world.

Super 16: Wild on rise as elite puck possession team

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Minnesota Wild began the 2013-14 season with a spike in their possession statistics, as a team long considered one of the most passive in the NHL tried to change its identity.

As the season wore on, the Wild slipped back to the middle of the pack in puck possession, but a dominating performance against the Colorado Avalanche and a strong showing against the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs was a nice way to finish with the arrow pointing upward.

The Wild appear to have consolidated those postseason gains and built from the success. Minnesota has arguably been the most impressive team of the 2014-15 season, and are a late goal at Honda Center and a crazy third-period collapse at Madison Square Garden from probably being considered the best team in the League to this point.

New season sees Rangers' Nash an elite scorer again

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The puck dropped in front of Rick Nash as if it arrived gift-wrapped with a card on it that read, "Open for a goal."

It dropped at the feet of the New York Rangers forward, which were positioned perfectly in front of the crease. The bounce was timed perfectly with the blade of his swinging stick.

Forgive Nash for getting a chuckle out of his good fortune. Forgive him for feeling that he deserves some.

"Last year during the [Stanley Cup] Playoffs I would go to the net and that puck would never drop on my stick like that," Nash said.

Quote of the Day

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
