Over the Boards: Red Wings focused on playoff streak

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Over the Boards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The Detroit Red Wings were in the same situation last year as they are now. They were facing pressure to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs, to extend their record streak of postseason appearances, without much time to make sure it happened.

The Red Wings eventually had to win their final four regular-season games and get some help to make the playoffs for a 22nd straight season, but they pulled it off with Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk in the lineup.

Zetterberg and Datsyuk are watching these days, out of the lineup with injuries, so if Detroit is going to extend its playoff streak to 23 seasons, it will have to rely on something it hasn't had much patience for in previous seasons: youth.

"I think it's intriguing," Red Wings veteran defenseman Niklas Kronwall said Tuesday, a few hours before Detroit lost 4-3 to the New Jersey Devils. "The way these [young] guys have played, the way they have stepped up since getting the chance, it's great to see the confidence. They just want more and more."


Tale of the Tape: Flyers host Capitals

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Tale of the Tape

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Philadelphia Flyers would like nothing more than to complete a home-and-home sweep when they host the Washington Capitals in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry matchup (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2). The Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to win 5-4 at Verizon Center on Sunday, enough to keep them ahead of a pack of five Metropolitan Division teams that are separated by three points.


Daily Primer March 5: Different look for Caps, Flyers

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


It's usually an intense showdown when the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals get together, and it shouldn't be any different when the teams face off at Wells Fargo Center (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

But each team will have a bit of a different look after tweaking its rosters prior to the NHL Trade Deadline, which is set for 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.

Philadelphia enters the game in second place in the Metropolitan Division, but one point ahead of the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets and two ahead of the Capitals.

Here's a closer look at all the action Wednesday:


Rivalry Night Faceoff: Holtby vs. Mason

To help celebrate NBC Rivalry Night, NHL.com will look at a rivalry within the rivalry of the featured game on Wednesday nights. For this week, we are trying to determine which goaltender is better equipped to backstop his team into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Washington Capitals' Braden Holtby or the Philadelphia Flyers' Steve Mason.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals enter their Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2) separated by two points in the standings. Each team features a high-scoring offense and a defense that has had questionable performances.

They also have one other thing in common. Each has a goaltender looking to prove he can backstop his team to a long run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Can the Flyers' Steve Mason or the Capitals' Braden Holtby be that guy for his team?


Canucks take big risk by trading Luongo

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 11:49 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- In a little more than eight months, the Vancouver Canucks have gone from trying to choose between goaltenders Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider to having neither.

After shocking the hockey world, and both its goalies, by trading Schneider to the New Jersey Devils at the 2013 NHL Draft, Vancouver was at it again Tuesday. This time, they surprised even Luongo by sending him to the Florida Panthers, his former team, in a four-player trade on the eve of the NHL Trade Deadline.

Just like that, the best goalie in franchise history and his heir apparent are gone from the Canucks. In their place are rookie Eddie Lack and unproven prospect Jacob Markstrom, who was acquired from Florida along with center Shawn Matthias for Luongo and left wing Steven Anthony.

Just like that, Vancouver has gone from a proven veteran with almost 800 NHL games played, a run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and two Olympic gold medals, to two goalies with less than 70 games of combined experience in the NHL, no Stanley Cup Playoff experience, and lots of question marks.


Brodeur unsure he'll be with Devils after deadline

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 11:27 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- A sellout crowd of 16,592 fans packed Prudential Center on Tuesday night, and they were still chanting for their favorite goalie long after Martin Brodeur left the ice following the New Jersey Devils' 4-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings.

"We want Marty," they yelled in unison. "Marty, Marty, Marty…" they repeatedly chanted before and during the game.

If this was Brodeur's final game as a Devil, he went out in style, with his NHL-record 684th victory, all with the only franchise he has ever played for.

However, nobody, not even Brodeur, is sure if this was his final game with New Jersey because it's unclear if he will be traded before the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.


Daniel Sedin out indefinitely with lower-body injury

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury he sustained Sunday in the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic.

General manager Mike Gillis said Tuesday he did not know when Sedin would be able to return.

Capitals send Erat to Coyotes for Klesla, Brown

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 9:22 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

The Washington Capitals on Tuesday traded forwards Martin Erat and John Mitchell to the Phoenix Coyotes for forward Chris Brown, defenseman Rostislav Klesla and a fourth-round pick at the 2015 NHL Draft.

The Capitals said Brown and Klesla will report to the Hershey Bears, the Capitals’ American Hockey League affiliate.


Six goalies moved ahead of NHL Trade Deadline

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 9:15 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Goaltenders have been the hardest players to move before the NHL Trade Deadline during the past few years because the supply has far exceeded the demand.

Not anymore. At least not this year.

Goalies dominated trade discussion in the past few days, and they were all over the news Tuesday afternoon when four, most notably Roberto Luongo, were traded in a span of a few hours. Six goalies have been moved since Friday, including three who are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents after the season.

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr moved into ninth place on the NHL's all-time assists list Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings at Prudential Center.

Jagr picked up the 1,041st of his career on Travis Zajac's goal at 6:30 of the third period, moving him past Marcel Dionne. He is eight assists behind Gordie Howe (1,049) for eighth on the all-time list. Zajac's goal gave the Devils a 3-2 lead.

Jagr, who turned 42 on Feb. 15, has 700 goals and 1,741 points in 1,453 career games spanning 19-plus NHL seasons.

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.
