Daily Primer March 20: Pacific powers square off

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

First place in the Pacific Division is on the line Thursday night.

The San Jose Sharks' 8-2-1 surge following the 2014 Sochi Olympics has coincided with a so-so 4-3-2 stretch by the Anaheim Ducks, meaning that the team that skates off the ice at SAP Center with the victory will go home with the top spot in the division. Each team has 97 points, but the Ducks have a game in hand.

History is on the Sharks' side: They have won the past four games between the teams in San Jose and are 12-4-1 against the Ducks at home since the start of 2008.

Here's a look at all of the action Thursday:

Prospector Files: USHL draft-eligible All-Star team

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospector Files

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The selection of right wing Michael McCarron of the United States Under-18 National Team Development Program in the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft marked the ninth straight year at least one player from the United States Hockey League was among the top 30 picks.

As it turned out, 32 players competing in the USHL in 2012-13 were chosen last June, the most players selected from the league in one year. There's no question the USHL has been churning out NHL-caliber athletes in recent years; a total of 94 USHL alumni competed in the League in 2012-13. More than 300 players on USHL rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools and more than 200 are currently under NHL contract.

Sault Ste. Marie's McCann seeks consistency in game

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque reportedly changed his skate laces before every game and between each period.

Patrick Roy carefully laid out every piece of his equipment on the floor of the locker room before putting them on in a specific order, in addition to chatting up his goal posts during games. Joe Nieuwendyk apparently would sprinkle a bit of baby powder on his sticks before hitting the ice.

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds center Jared McCann, No. 11 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm list of the top North American skaters eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft, has his own superstition.

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 1:23 AM / On Campus

Dan Myers - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Other than the Minnesota Wild, who call the facility home, few teams at any level have played more games at Xcel Energy Center than the University of Minnesota.

The Gophers, the nation's top-ranked team, are 2-0 this season at the arena, which is located seven miles from campus this season and where they've played 33 times. Minnesota will headline the inaugural Big Ten Tournament beginning with first-round play Thursday afternoon in downtown St. Paul.

Blackhawks forward Kane injured, out three weeks

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 12:45 AM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane will be out at least three weeks and could miss the rest of the regular season after sustaining a lower-body injury during the second period of a 4-0 victory against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday.

Kane's left leg was hit after teammate Sheldon Brookbank checked Blues forward Brenden Morrow to the ice along the boards. Morrow hit Kane's left leg and he fell awkwardly to the ice.

Kane's last shift ended with 7:21 remaining in the second period. He skated slowly to the bench then headed to the dressing room for examination. Kane assisted on a power-play goal by Duncan Keith, his 69th point of the season, with 54.4 seconds left in the first period of a 4-0 victory.

He skated slowly to the bench then headed to the dressing room for examination. Coach Joel Quenneville said Kane will miss at least three weeks, and when asked if he would play again this regular season replied, "We'll see."

Blackhawks coach Quenneville third to reach 700 wins

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 11:39 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- It happened against the St. Louis Blues, his first stop as an NHL bench boss, but Joel Quenneville wasn't in the mood to reflect on his career win total.

When the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Blues 4-0 at United Center on Wednesday night, Quenneville became the third coach in NHL history to reach 700 regular-season victories, joining Hall of Fame members Scotty Bowman (1,244) and Al Arbour (782) as the only coaches to reach that milestone.

Asked about it afterward, Quenneville spoke only of win No. 700 and not at all of the 699 that preceded it. Chicago hadn't beaten St. Louis in any of the first three games this season, and the victory helped the Blackhawks move ahead of the Colorado Avalanche into second place in the Central Division.

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 7:45 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Zach Parise expects to feel like an outsider walking into familiar place Thursday when he enters Prudential Center through the visitors entrance for the first time.

The Minnesota Wild left wing said the entire experience of playing a road game against the his old team, the New Jersey Devils, will be one of the strangest, coolest and most humbling experiences of his career.

"I've been excited to come back here to play, but it was one of those things, you look at the schedule in October and you're like, 'Ah, we're not going there until March, I've got a lot of time until then,'" Parise told NHL.com Wednesday night. "Then it's December and you're still like, 'I've got a couple of months.' But then the Olympics came and went and you're like, 'Oh my gosh, we're going there in five games.' It really snuck up on me, but I've been looking forward to it. It's going to be fun."
