Capitals will have to beat the best to make playoffs

Monday, 03.10.2014 / 2:45 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- The Washington Capitals' road to a Stanley Cup Playoff berth is littered with potential potholes.

Beginning with a home-and-home series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday and Tuesday, seven of Washington's next nine games are against teams currently ranked among the NHL's top 10.

Six of the Capitals' seven opponents during this stretch occupy playoff spots as of Monday, and the one that does not, the Vancouver Canucks, is not exactly a pushover despite its recent pratfalls.

A three-game road trip through California awaits March 18-22. The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks are tied for the second-most home wins League-wide with 24. In regards to the Sharks specifically, the Capitals are 1-15-2 against them since the start of the 1999-00 season and have not won in San Jose since Oct. 30, 1993.

Detroit Red Wings center Joakim Andersson is out indefinitely with a broken foot sustained when he was hit by Dominic Moore's shot during the second period of Detroit's 3-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday.

The Red Wings have five centers on injured reserve: Andersson, Pavel Datsyuk (sore right knee), Henrik Zetterberg (back surgery), Darren Helm (upper body) and Stephen Weiss (sports hernia surgery). Detroit acquired veteran David Legwand from the Nashville Predators at the NHL Trade Deadline and will call up Cory Emmerton from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.

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.

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.
