Former Flyers coach Shero honored with statue

Saturday, 03.15.2014 / 1:16 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- The leader of the Broad Street Bullies has been immortalized in the spot where he did his best work.

On Saturday, the Flyers unveiled an 8-foot, 1,300-pound bronze statue of coach Fred Shero on the former site of the Spectrum, where he coached for seven seasons and won the Stanley Cup twice. That resume earned him enshrinement in the Hockey Hall of Fame in November and a permanent spot in Philadelphia sports history. Shero passed away in 1990.

"He coached here, the Spectrum was here, he's now in front of the area where we all had so many great memories," Flyers chairman Ed Snider said at a ceremonial unveiling for the statue. "He'll be remembered here forever. I think it's fantastic. He was the greatest coach we ever had, one of the greatest guys you'll ever want to meet."

Goaltender Price to start for Canadiens

Saturday, 03.15.2014 / 11:43 AM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens will have goaltender Carey Price back in net for the first time since the return from the Olympic break when they host the Ottawa Senators at Bell Centre on Saturday.

Price has missed eight games with a lower-body injury he aggravated while playing for Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The last time Price played was the gold-medal game in Sochi when he made 24 saves in a 3-0 win against Sweden, extending his Olympic shutout streak to 164:19.

"Price is playing, it's excellent news," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. "He had a good day [Friday] and he felt good [Saturday] morning."

Kings hope Gaborik can provide offensive spark

Saturday, 03.15.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- When Marian Gaborik got his first full day off in Los Angeles on Tuesday, he poked around what has become a playground for hockey players here. He took in sunny Manhattan Beach, where many of his Los Angeles Kings teammates live.

"It's beautiful around here," Gaborik said. "It's nice to get some vitamin D and just get ready for the game. I think it's pretty easy to get comfortable here."

Gaborik, though, won't have many more days off and the Kings have a small window to get their offense going with their new forward in order to improve their position for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins will see a lot of each other this weekend.

The Pennsylvania rivals begin a home-and-home series Saturday afternoon when they face off at Wells Fargo Center (1 p.m., NHLN-US, ROOT, CSN-PH). After that game is over, they'll head to the other end of the state for a rematch on Sunday (12:30 p.m., NBC, TSN2).

In terms of the standings, the games likely mean more to the Flyers than the Penguins. Philadelphia is fighting to hang on to a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs; the Penguins are cruising to the Metropolitan Division title.

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

Drafted No. 2 by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2005 NHL Draft, Bobby Ryan played five seasons for the Anaheim Ducks before being traded this past summer to the Ottawa Senators. Ryan, 26, has endeared himself to his new teammates this season, totaling 22 goals and 45 points while playing solid defensively with a plus-9 rating. The New Jersey native talks about how he learned to play the game, his involvement in helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy and why proposing at the top of the Eiffel Tower was a necessity.

Kathryn Tappen: I heard you were quite busy during the Olympic break. Congratulations on your proposal to longtime girlfriend Danielle Rhodes.

Bobby Ryan: We did; we got engaged in Paris. It was pretty cool, so thank you.

KT: You do realize you’ve set the bar incredibly high for men everywhere by proposing atop the Eiffel Tower?

BR: I waited so long to propose I had to go all in, so that was my only choice.

Canadiens goalie Price full participant at practice

Friday, 03.14.2014 / 3:37 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price had his best day at practice Friday, according to coach Michel Therrien, but his status remains day-to-day in his recovery from a lower-body injury he aggravated playing for Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Price has missed eight NHL games since his return from the Olympics; the Canadiens are 3-4-1 and have allowed 28 goals in his absence.

"Watching how he's played goal since the start of the season and seeing how he played at the Olympics, we can say he's one of the best goalies in the National Hockey League," Therrien said. "When you lose your best player it's going to have an effect on you.

"We can't use that as an excuse; we have no excuses on our team. But Carey is our best player and one that is very important. Any team that loses its No. 1 goalie for a period of time is going to be affected."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
