Struggling Penguins confident goals will come

Monday, 11.18.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Dan Bylsma compared the Pittsburgh Penguins’ scoring problems to a baseball player in a batting slump being worried about when he'll get his next hit.

The difference is the Penguins aren't worried about when they'll score their next goal, not with the chances they've been getting and the firepower they know they have.

"You don't always look at the production as an indicator that you're doing the right things," Bylsma said.

Offensive-zone time, shots on goal, shot attempts, and chances for and against are some of the key stats coaches look at to judge how their team is playing. Production, though, is all that matters in the end, and the Penguins haven't gotten enough of it in the past 12 games.

Pittsburgh enters its game against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday at Consol Energy Center (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2) having lost four of its past five games and seven of the past 12 because they simply haven't scored enough goals.

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Kings goaltender Ben Scrivens admits it's a cliché, but it's the truth. When it comes to his play, he takes things one game at a time, one save at a time.

With a shutout streak now extended to 155:02 following his 37-save, 1-0 shutout against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, the 27-year-old is in a zone.

It's not the first time that Scrivens has enjoyed this kind of run. In fact, it's the third time in less than four years that he has collected consecutive shutouts.

Sunday, 11.17.2013 / 5:06 PM / News


The Washington Capitals on Sunday placed defenseman Mike Green (lower body) on injured reserve and recalled defenseman Dmitry Orlov from the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League.

Orlov, 22, is first among Hershey defensemen with eight points (two goals, six assists). He has 20 points (three goals, 17 assists) and 18 penalty minutes in 65 regular-season games with the Capitals.

Orlov was Washington's second-round selection (No. 55) in the 2009 NHL Draft.


Senators to introduce NHL Heritage Classic jersey


The Ottawa Senators will officially unveil their NHL Heritage Classic jersey on Nov. 28. The Senators will wear the jersey when they play the Vancouver Canucks in the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic on March 2 at BC Place in Vancouver.

The Heritage Classic will be the first NHL game held in a retractable-roof facility and just the third time a regular-season game will take place outdoors in Canada. In 2003, the Montreal Canadiens faced off against the Edmonton Oilers at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton. In 2011, the Canadiens played the Calgary Flames at McMahon Stadium in Calgary.

Sunday, 11.17.2013 / 3:07 PM / News


The Edmonton Oilers recalled goalie Ilya Bryzgalov from the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League on Sunday. The Oilers play Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Rexall Place, where Bryzgalov could make his first start against former Philadelphia Flyers teammate Sergei Bobrovsky.

Daily Primer Nov. 17: One more for the road

If it's mid-November in Chicago, it must be time for the circus. If you're a Chicago Blackhawk, that means it's time for the "Circus Trip."

The Blackhawks hit the road this week, making their Sunday night visit from the San Jose Sharks that much more important. It's their final home game this month; Chicago spends the next two weeks touring North America while playing seven in a row on the road.

For the Sharks, Chicago is the final stop on a five-game trip on which they're 3-0-1. After a 5-4 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets last Sunday, the Sharks swept the three Western Canada teams for the first time in franchise history, including a 3-1 victory against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.


Sunday Long Read: '03 Heritage Classic starts boom

Sunday, 11.17.2013 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

For the NHL, a flight of fancy from a group of beer drinkers provided the impetus for the outdoor-game boom that has shaped the past decade for the League.

Patrick LaForge, who as the president and chief operating officer of the Edmonton Oilers, was one of the driving forces behind the League's first regular-season outdoor game, the 2003 Heritage Classic played at Commonwealth Stadium on Nov. 22. His idea, sketched out on a flight back to Edmonton, found its roots in a survey of Molson customers.

The game, played on a brutally cold day in the City of Champions featured the Oilers and the Montreal Canadiens. It was preceded by a Legends Game that proved to be one of the most memorable alumni games in the history of the sport, if not all sports.

The successes of that day, which spawned the outdoor-game boom to follow, provided the blue print for a series of Winter Classic games beginning in 2003. It also spawned another Heritage Classic, in Calgary in 2011, as well as one to be played in 2014 in Vancouver. The four-game Stadium Series to be played in three different venues during the 2013-14 season is also a linear descendant of the audacious plan by the Edmonton Oilers to take the game back outside to its roots.

With the 10-year anniversary of the landmark event looming next week, as well as the approaching 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Mich., coming into focus, NHL.com revisited the magical spectacle in Edmonton that forever altered the course of the National Hockey League and hockey in general.

In this Sunday Long Read, 25 different individuals involved with the day share their memories of a game -- and a spectacle -- that proved to be beyond the strongest imaginations at the time.


Islanders goalie Nabokov leaves with groin injury

Saturday, 11.16.2013 / 11:20 PM / News

UNIONDALE, N.Y. – Evgeni Nabokov's return didn't last long.

The New York Islanders goaltender left the game Saturday night against the Detroit Red Wings 4:12 into the first period with a groin injury and didn't return.

Coach Jack Capuano said after the Islanders' 5-4 shootout victory that he had no update on Nabokov's condition, other than that he would be re-evaluated Monday, but that he expected the 38-year-old goaltender to miss "at least a couple of weeks."


Blackhawks' Khabibulin injured vs. Predators

Saturday, 11.16.2013 / 8:53 PM / News


Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin left the game against the Nashville Predators on Saturday night in the first period with an apparent lower-body injury.

Khabibulin sustained the injury when he went down into the butterfly on a slap shot from the point by Predators defenseman Shea Weber. The veteran goalie had to be helped from the Bridgestone Arena ice.


Kings' Regehr intrigued to play in Stadium Series

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- There was the cold air funneling into his lungs, the vision of his breath coming out of his nose and mouth, and the bundled up boisterous crowd at McMahon Stadium. Robyn Regehr, then a defenseman for the Calgary Flames, knew exactly what to expect heading into the 2011 Tim Horton's Heritage Classic in Calgary.

"I had been in that situation before," Regehr told NHL.com from Prudential Center prior to a game between his Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils. "Not in a NHL game, but as a kid growing up."

Regehr can't have the same feeling heading into his second NHL outdoor game. For a guy from Saskatchewan, the thought of playing a hockey game of any kind under the Southern California sky is foreign and can't even be called a dream come true because, frankly, how could he have ever drummed up such a dream in the first place?
