The New York Islanders on Wednesday unveiled the new jersey they will wear when they take the ice at Yankee Stadium to face the archrival New York Rangers in a Coors Light Stadium Series game on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

The blue sweater features a modern look on the traditional Islanders logo, with the iconic "NY" lettering infused with a chrome border, and four stripes to represent the Stanley Cup championships won by the franchise from 1980-83.

"It's sharp," said captain John Tavares, who recently modeled the jersey. "It's going more for the modern look, which I think is a great idea, especially with so many teams going back to the retro. We're going to look good when we go out there."


Red Wings working to get Howard back in top form

Wednesday, 11.27.2013 / 9:23 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- Jonas Gustavsson is starting for the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night, but not just because of his 5-0-1 record or his October victory against the Boston Bruins.

Gustavsson will face the Bruins in a "Wednesday Night Rivalry" clash at Joe Louis Arena (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN) because the Red Wings need to tinker with Jimmy Howard, who hasn't won in seven straight starts. Detroit is also just 2-3-5 in its past 10 games and recently snapped a seven-game winless skid, so it's time to fix whatever ails its No. 1 goalie, who the Red Wings signed to a six-year contract extension last season worth a reported $31 million.


Bruins visit Red Wings in Wednesday Night Rivalry

Wednesday, 11.27.2013 / 3:00 AM / Tale of the Tape

The Boston Bruins make their first trip to Joe Louis Arena in more than two years when they face the Detroit Red Wings in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry matchup (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN). The Original Six rivals, now part of the Atlantic Division, split two games in Boston last month. The Bruins will be trying to win in Detroit for the first time since March 11, 2007.


Over the Boards: LaFontaine did research with Neely

Cam Neely thought Pat LaFontaine was merely picking his brain to see how things were going as one longtime friend and former competitor checking in with another. Little did Neely know LaFontaine was on a clandestine advice-seeking mission each time the two spoke earlier this season.

"Looking back I can say maybe it was research," Neely, the Boston Bruins' president and alternate governor, told NHL.com, "but during the conversations it felt that it was just his interest in what was happening."

LaFontaine and Neely are laughing about those conversations now, two weeks after LaFontaine was named the Buffalo Sabres' president of hockey operations. He was hired on Nov. 13.

"I couldn't quite tell him everything," LaFontaine told NHL.com. "After he found out he sent me a funny email, called me and wished me good luck."

To help celebrate NBC Rivalry Night, NHL.com will look at a rivalry within the rivalry of the featured game on Wednesday nights. This week, we take a look at which coach has the upper hand, Mike Babcock from the Detroit Red Wings or Claude Julien from the Boston Bruins.

Mike Babcock and Claude Julien are competitors and equals in the NHL. Come February, when they travel to the 2014 Sochi Olympics, the dynamic will change. Babcock will be Julien's boss and they'll be after the same goal, another Olympic gold medal for Canada.

Babcock is reprising his role as Canada's head coach and Julien is joining his staff as an associate coach. He's the newbie on the staff that also includes associate coaches Lindy Ruff (Dallas Stars) and Ken Hitchcock (St. Louis Blues), who were with Babcock at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.


Flyers' Lecavalier faces Lightning in Tampa return

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Vincent Lecavalier spent most of his professional hockey life at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. All that time as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning allowed him to become intimately familiar with every part of the building.

But the game at the arena Wednesday night will present something rare for Lecavalier, who will have to find the visitors' locker room.

"I've seen it," he said. "After 14 years, you walk in there a few times."

He'll do more than walk in there Wednesday, when he plays his first game against his former team when his current team, the Philadelphia Flyers, visit the Lightning.


Hurricanes' Karmanos a true hockey builder

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Peter Karmanos Jr. has experienced many fabulous moments as owner and chief executive officer of the Carolina Hurricanes, but one still stands out above all others.

It was during Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final when the Hurricanes were playing the Edmonton Oilers.

"Anybody who has experienced a Game 7 on or off the ice knows how much is at stake; how the pressure never stops," Karmanos said. "About halfway through that game I noticed every single person in the arena had been standing since the start. They never sat down until the game ended. That was a tremendous tribute to ice hockey because I remembered the initial reaction when we moved hockey to North Carolina. But the game and the fans came through in Raleigh; they stood and applauded the entire game."


Blackhawks to give Raanta first NHL start

Wednesday, 11.27.2013 / 12:02 AM / News

The Chicago Blackhawks will give Antti Raanta the opportunity he's been waiting for when the Finnish rookie starts in goal Wednesday night against the Calgary Flames,

Raanta, signed during the summer, made his NHL debut on Nov. 19 when he played two-plus periods against the Colorado Avalanche in relief of starter Corey Crawford. He allowed two goals on 16 shots in 47 minutes of a 5-1 loss.

"Of course, I'm excited," he said following the Blackhawks' practice Tuesday. "Like I said after the last game, I'm just excited to be here. Now the first [start] is pretty close so it's going to be nice today and tomorrow."


Daily Primer Nov. 27: Lecavalier returns to Tampa

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Vincent Lecavalier circled Wednesday night on his schedule right after he signed with the Philadelphia Flyers during the summer.

The Flyers visit the Tampa Bay Lightning for the first time this season on Thanksgiving Eve, and for Lecavalier, it will be his first game at the Tampa Bay Times Forum as a visitor. He spent 14 seasons with the Lightning before being bought out last summer and quickly snapped up by the Flyers.

"It's obviously going to be a special day," Lecavalier said. "I'll be excited about it -- going back into the building, a different entranceway, different locker room. But I'm excited about it. I'm excited to play against my ex-teammates, friends, play in front of family. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Lecavalier will be honored as the Lightning's community hero and a video tribute will be shown on the scoreboard.


Hockey Night in Canada to continue on CBC

Tuesday, 11.26.2013 / 4:02 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

TORONTO -- Hockey Night in Canada will continue its 61-year run on CBC as part of the landmark agreement for Canadian national broadcast and multimedia rights jointly announced by the National Hockey League and Rogers Communications on Tuesday.

CBC will also air the Stanley Cup Final as part of a four-year sub-licensing agreement with Rogers.

However, CBC will no longer control production, editorial content or on-air talent associated with Hockey Night in Canada telecasts. CBC will also not receive any of the revenue generated from HNIC broadcasts, but will no longer pay production costs either. Revenue generated by HNIC broadcasts will go to Rogers.

"We all grew up with certain institutions and brands that come to mind," said Nadir Mohamed, Rogers Communications president and chief executive officer. "We reached out and worked with the CBC to ensure Canadians will get access to Hockey Night in Canada the way they have before. I think that's great. It's great for, I believe, the CBC. It's great for all of us as Canadians."

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
