U.S. women's star Knight proud to shoot 'Like A Girl'

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 11:00 AM / NHL Insider

Evan Sporer - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Hilary Knight was one of an estimated 114 million-plus people in America watching Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1. And like many of those people, Knight was tuned in when Always aired its #LikeAGirl ad, part of its campaign to help instill confidence in young girls and tear down stereotypes.

For Knight, joining in was a logical next step.

"It was sort of a no-brainer to get involved with the campaign," Knight told NHL.com. "When I was growing up, 'play like a girl' or 'you shoot like a girl,' whatever it is, sort of had a negative connotation to it.

"After seeing the Super Bowl for the first Always 'Like A Girl' campaign, it really changed my view on the 'like a girl' phrase, and the tagline that they're using now."

MAPLE LEAFS SNAP ROAD SKID WITH BIZARRE FINISH IN FLORIDA

Nazem Kadri and Peter Holland scored in the third period to rally the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers, their first road win since Dec. 31 (at BOS), snapping a franchise-record 16-game road losing streak.

* Panthers goalie Al Montoya surrendered all three goals after starting the second period in relief of starter Roberto Luongo, who left the game due to injury. Montoya, however, was injured early in the third period, but remained in the game for more than 10 minutes following a brief delay.

* Luongo eventually replaced Montoya after putting on his gear for a second time. Before that though, the Panthers thought of using forward Derek MacKenzie as a replacement in net and, after receiving approval from the NHL, dressed goaltending coach Robb Tallas, who played 99 NHL games with the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks from 1995-2001.

Five things to watch when Red Wings host Rangers

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings were major players at the NHL Trade Deadline earlier this week. Their latest additions will be on display in front of a nationally televised audience Wednesday.

The Rangers, who acquired defenseman Keith Yandle from the Arizona Coyotes and center James Sheppard from the San Jose Sharks on Sunday, are one point shy of first place in the Metropolitan Division heading into this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN1).

Yandle, who should give the Rangers' power-play a boost, made his debut in a 4-1 win against the Nashville Predators on Monday. Sheppard should play his first game for New York (39-17-6) on Wednesday.

The Red Wings (35-15-11), who acquired forward Erik Cole from the Dallas Stars on Sunday and defenseman Marek Zidlicky from the New Jersey Devils on Monday, trail the Montreal Canadiens by six points for the Atlantic Division lead. Detroit will be seeking its third consecutive win.

Here are five things to watch in the game between the Rangers and Red Wings:

Rangers' Nash among best pure goal-scorers

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Game after game, New York Rangers radio broadcaster Dave Maloney talks about Rick Nash's ability to check the puck back, to play on the inside, in front or behind the net, to dart around the slot, and to find a way to make a play with the puck in tight despite his size that results in a goal.

Rarely does Maloney have to look around for people helping Nash do what he does, even though they are there. Rarely does Maloney have to give credit to someone else for creating the opportunity for Nash, even though every player needs a little bit of assistance.

"A lot of what Nash gets is the result of what he does," Maloney told NHL.com. "[Derick] Brassard and [Derek] Stepan are smart, really good puck movers, but you could have an all-time puck mover play with Nash and he'd be the same as he is right now."

That makes Nash the most unique goal-scorer in the League and his ability to connect this season has put him in the conversation with Alex Ovechkin and Steven Stamkos as the best pure goal-scorers in the League.

Price carrying Canadiens, leads race for Hart Trophy

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

With three-quarters of the 2014-15 season complete, NHL.com looks at some of the biggest storylines and award contenders.

A goalie has won the Hart Trophy seven times in the 90-year history of the award. It hasn't happened since the 2001-02 season, when Jose Theodore took home hardware for being the main reason a subpar Montreal Canadiens team made the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Though it's obviously rare, if the NHL handed out the trophy today for the most valuable player, it would go to, or at least it should go to another Canadiens goalie.

Panthers' Luongo leaves, returns after Montoya injury

Wednesday, 03.04.2015 / 12:34 AM / News

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- At different times during the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, the Florida Panthers started thinking they might have to use center Derek MacKenzie or goaltending coach Robb Tallas as their goalie.

In a strange twist players on both teams said they had never before seen, Panthers goalies Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya were injured during the game. Montoya was forced to play for more than 10 minutes in the third period with a groin injury, and Luongo finished the game after putting on his gear for a second time.

"Obviously we were really concerned," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said after the 3-2 loss. "We're playing a pretty good game and all of a sudden, boom, boom, you lose two goalies real quick."
