Longer overtime to be discussed at GM meetings

Sunday, 03.09.2014 / 7:52 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The format for overtime and expanded video review are expected to be among the issues that take center stage this week at the annual March meeting of the NHL's general managers.

Three days of meetings begin Monday.

The general managers most recently met in November, in Toronto. The discussion on potential changes to the current overtime format was tabled until the March meetings. At the time, there appeared to be traction among the GMs for changing the format to increase the length of overtime in an attempt to have more games end before the shootout, a subject originally brought up by Ken Holland of the Detroit Red Wings.

Various overtime formats were discussed in November, including adding more time to the current format, which is a five-minute, 4-on-4 sudden-death session. There were also discussions of expanding the overtime and adding a 3-on-3 element before going to the shootout portion of the tiebreaker.

Rangers' Lundqvist takes time to appreciate 300th win

Sunday, 03.09.2014 / 5:07 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Henrik Lundqvist admits he never took the time to appreciate individual accomplishments early in his career. Back then, he was always focused on the next game.

Now that Lundqvist won his 300th game to put him one victory shy of Mike Richter's New York Rangers record, and tied Ed Giacomin for the franchise mark with 49 shutouts, he's allowed himself to be more nostalgic.

"Coming into the League you're so focused on getting better and keep pushing yourself. Now you let yourself enjoy where you are a little more," Lundqvist said after earning the historic win by defeating the Detroit Red Wings 3-0 Sunday afternoon. "You still want to push yourself, but at the same time you want to enjoy the ride. So I definitely think back about how it all happened. You do it sometimes. It's fun."

After four-year wait, Kuznetsov joins Capitals

Sunday, 03.09.2014 / 3:11 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Ever since the Washington Capitals selected forward Evgeny Kuznetsov at No. 26 in the 2010 NHL Draft, the 21-year-old has taken on an almost mythical aura.

As Kuznetsov dazzled in the KHL and at various World Junior Championships, highlights of his most sensational goals and performances were passed around Washington's fan base as if they were folk tales, his burgeoning legend growing exponentially.

That awe-inspiring feeling was not lost on the Capitals' brain trust when Kuznetsov arrived at Verizon Center on Saturday to sign his entry-level contract.

"It's kind of like seeing the Loch Ness Monster when he walked in," general manager George McPhee said. "We've heard of you, but we haven't seen you and there he was. I found it hard to believe he was standing there after all this."

Sunday, 03.09.2014 / 3:05 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The St. Louis Blues spent most of the season chasing the Chicago Blackhawks for first place in the Central Division. After passing Chicago, they turned their sights on the Anaheim Ducks, who have led the overall NHL standings for the past few weeks.

A win Sunday night against the Minnesota Wild will leave the Blues at the top of the heap.

The Blues come into the game with a 4-0-0 record since acquiring goaltender Ryan Miller on Feb. 28. That includes a 26-save performance by the 2010 Vezina Trophy winner in a 2-1 road win against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Here's a look at all of the action Sunday:

Sunday Long Read: Modano remains face of Stars

Sunday, 03.09.2014 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Dallas Stars president Jim Lites tells the story as if it happened yesterday. That's how well he remembers it. That's how much the conversation Lites had with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones nearly 20 years ago resonates with him.

"I remember Jerry Jones saying to me about two years into our stay here, 'Jim, I can't believe how much success you guys have had, I never would have thought hockey would be successful in Dallas,'" Lites told NHL.com. "And then he said, 'That Mike Modano is as important to this community as Troy Aikman. I can't believe how dynamic he is.'

"I mean, the Cowboys are the Cowboys and Troy Aikman is Troy Aikman, but Mo was that good, that big," Lites continued. "He's the guy every man wants to be and every woman wants to be with."

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.

— Stars forward Rich Peverley to "The Musers" radio show on The Ticket 1310 AM in Dallas
