Bruins' Iginla proving he's still a top-flight talent

Saturday, 03.29.2014 / 7:20 PM / NHL Insider

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Free agency, mega-contracts and wealth disparity among owners have made the one-organization superstar almost as rare as the 150-point season.

When Nicklas Lidstrom retired from the Detroit Red Wings in 2012 after 20 seasons in one uniform, the ranks of the one-team legends was diminished further. In 2013 another icon of one city, Jarome Iginla, was traded from the Calgary Flames to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Iginla remains the Flames' all-time leader in games played, goals and points; he was in the midst of his 16th season with an organization that traded for him when he was 18 years old and anointed him captain at 26.

Some legends, like Brett Hull and Paul Coffey, get traded around the NHL their entire careers with varying levels of success at each stop. A few like Lidstrom make it all the way through to the end with one team. Others are shipped off late in their careers and the results historically have been mixed.

Daily Primer March 29: Coyotes can pass Wild

Saturday, 03.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The Phoenix Coyotes have been trying to hold on to the second Western Conference wild-card position in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They return home after a three-game road trip looking ahead, not behind.

The Coyotes went 2-0-1 on their trip, and a victory against the visiting Minnesota Wild on Saturday (9 p.m. ET) will move them into the first wild-card spot, ahead of the slumping Wild. Phoenix won games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils with backup goaltender Thomas Greiss, who's likely to get the call against Minnesota in place of starter Mike Smith, who's out with a lower-body injury.

Tapped In: Ward on roundabout route to success

Saturday, 03.29.2014 / 1:30 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

Born in Canada to immigrant parents from Barbados, Joel Ward wasn't sure his dream of becoming a hockey player would ever come true. That was, until a certain someone familiar to NHL and NHL Network fans introduced Ward to the game. Ward grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, close to Kevin Weekes, a goalie in the NHL for many years and now an analyst for NHL Network. Through that relationship, Ward learned quickly that indeed a hockey career could be possible. The Washington Capitals forward talks about his mentor, as well as his upbringing, charitable work, decision to attend Canadian college and other subjects in the latest installment of Tapped In.

Kathryn Tappen: I don't usually ask on-ice related questions, but you've been on fire lately! What has been working for you offensively?

Joel Ward: My linemates have been great. I've gotten a couple of good bounces and rebounds that have been lying around. I happen to just put them in. We've had a handful of good games, have played pretty solid getting the pucks out of our own zone, and getting up the ice. I've been an opportunist, at the right place at the right time.

Healthy Crosby, capable call-ups propelled Penguins

Saturday, 03.29.2014 / 12:58 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

It didn't seem to matter who was in the lineup for the Pittsburgh Penguins, or how many key players were on the injured list -- and on most nights there were a lot.

Through all the issues the Penguins continued to win, and Friday they became the second team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. That spot in the postseason is just the first step for a team with aspirations of winning the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2009.

That can't happen until June. For now, here are five reasons the Penguins were able to punch their ticket to the postseason for the eighth consecutive season.

James van Riemsdyk of the Toronto Maple Leafs tied the NHL record for the fastest goal from the start of a period when he scored four seconds into the second period against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.

Tyler Bozak won the draw to van Riemsdyk, who raced into the Flyers zone and beat goaltender Steve Mason to tie the game 1-1.

"[Bozak] made the play, pretty much," van Riemsdyk told the Maple Leafs website. "We kind of looked at each other before that start of the faceoff and he decided he was going to try to push it ahead. ... He made a great play, I just fired on net."

Stars forward Peverley wants to return to play

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 9:31 PM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

DALLAS -- Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley said Friday he would like to return to the NHL if the time is right, but he'll need time to decide on his future as he recovers from a successful heart procedure.

"I feel great. I've gone back into my sinus rhythm (normal heartbeat) and I think under instructions of the doctors, I've been able to start working out and monitoring my heart rate," Peverley said in his first press conference since having the procedure last week at the Cleveland Clinic. "Going on the ice leisurely I think is something that shouldn't be a problem."

Peverley was able to take the ice Thursday for the first time since his procedure, which was to correct atrial fibrillation, the technical name for an irregular heartbeat.

"I went on the ice yesterday, and ultimately my goal would be to come back if it's the right time," he said.

Sabres prepare to honor Dominik Hasek

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 7:20 PM / Features

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Dominik Hasek was one of the top goalies in the NHL for most of his career. He may have been the best in the world during his nine seasons with the Buffalo Sabres.

The Sabres will induct Hasek into their Hall of Fame on Saturday night; they announced Friday that they will retire his No. 39 next season. Returning to the city where he made his biggest mark as a professional to be honored is something he's taken to heart.

"I'm very excited to be invited to Buffalo to be invited to go into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame, to be among these 51 or 52 people, I'm very appreciative," Hasek said. "To be back in Buffalo to meet and see some friends and people I worked with and spent such a great time with, it always means something for me."

Hasek joined the Sabres on Aug. 7, 1992, when he was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks. For the next nine seasons, Hasek earned his nickname of "The Dominator" by winning the Hart Trophy as the NHLs most valuable player twice and the Vezina Trophy as the League's top goalie six times.

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
