Johansen enjoying breakout season with Blue Jackets

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- There was a plenty of buzz surrounding Columbus Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen following a 3-2 victory March 20 against the Montreal Canadiens.

Most people wanted to talk about the third-year player's first NHL fight when he squared off against Max Pacioretty early in the game and how Johansen would respond after wading into unknown territory.

The answer came with 3:01 left in regulation when he showed the skill and savvy that made him the No. 4 pick by the Blue Jackets in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Super 16: Chara should be Norris favorite

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara has not had the help of teammate Dennis Seidenberg since he was lost to a serious knee injury in the first game after the December holiday break.

The Bruins, who have built a reputation as an elite goal-prevention club, wobbled for a few games as they adjusted to not having one of the NHL's best defensive defensemen. Now they are back to their stifling ways and back in the hunt for the Presidents' Trophy.

While Chara may not possess the traditional offensive numbers of some of his closest competitors, the mountainous Boston defenseman should be the frontrunner for the Norris Trophy.

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Goalie Roberto Luongo left the Florida Panthers' game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night after the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Luongo finished out the period but was not on the bench for the start of the second. He was replaced by Dan Ellis. The Panthers said Luongo was removed as a precautionary measure. The Hurricanes won the game 3-0.

Red Wings' Datsyuk still hopes to return this season

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 3:03 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The good news for the Detroit Red Wings is center Pavel Datsyuk has started skating on his own and can now do off-ice work in the weight room.

The bad news is his left knee, which has troubled him most of the season, probably won't be 100 percent again this season. Datsyuk didn't do any on-ice work before or during the Red Wings' morning skate Thursday at Joe Louis Arena, but did put in some hard work off the ice.

He also skated on his own a couple times this week, starting Monday. It's all part of the regimen that was set up for him on NHL Trade Deadline day, when Detroit shut him down from all hockey-related activities for a couple weeks to see if the problem might clear up faster.

Devils' Brodeur leaning toward playing next season

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 1:50 PM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur is leaning toward returning for at least one more season, according to NJ.com.

When the 41-year-old goaltender was asked if he had decided to play a 22nd NHL season in 2014-15, Brodeur replied, "I think so."

However, Brodeur said he wasn't in a hurry to make any decision until the end of the 2013-14 season.

"I'm going to wait it out," he said. "I'm going to take some time in the summer."

In the Cage: Lack proving worth down the stretch

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Justin Goldman - NHL.com Correspondent

On Wednesday night, while New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was busy earning his 30th win of the season for the eighth time in his legendary career, a rookie Swedish goalie was also making some big saves in a key conference matchup for his team.

Eddie Lack stopped 29 shots in a 5-2 win against the Minnesota Wild, which placed his Vancouver Canucks just four points behind the Phoenix Coyotes for the final wild-card spot into the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the Western Conference. The win also pushed Lack to 4-1-0 in his past five games with only 11 goals against on 138 shots, a .920 save percentage.

With eight games remaining in the regular season, Lack is currently 15-14-4 with a 2.32 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. His four shutouts are eighth overall in the NHL, while his GAA is 11th overall.

Things did not go well for Lack leading up to and directly following Roberto Luongo's surprising trade to the Florida Panthers. In fact, prior to this recent five-game surge, Lack was just 2-5-0 in March with 22 goals against on 181 shots, a meager .878 save percentage. But now, with all of the chaos and controversy behind him, Lack's play could become the driving force behind a late-season push for one of two wild-card spots.

But does he have what it takes to get the job done in such a pressure-filled market?

Senators' Ryan to have season-ending surgery

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 10:56 AM / News

NHL.com

Ottawa Senators right wing Bobby Ryan will have surgery to repair a sports hernia Thursday in Montreal, the team announced. The procedure will sideline Ryan for the rest of the 2013-14 season.

"Bobby has been dealing with the discomfort of this injury since it was sustained in November," Senators general manager Bryan Murray said in a statement. "Both Bobby and our medical staff were hopeful that we could hold off from having surgery until the completion of the season, but he aggravated the condition last Saturday in Dallas to the point that surgery is now the only option."

Red Wings' Nyquist sees accelerated development

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 10:16 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The numbers are impressive when you break down the tear Gustav Nyquist is on right now.

The 24-year old Detroit Red Wings forward has 25 goals and 17 assists for 42 points in 47 games, but that's only the big picture. Narrowing the scope shows Nyquist, who was named the NHL first star this past week, has scored nine goals with one assist during a career-high six-game goal streak heading into a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday at Joe Louis Arena (7 p.m. ET, TSN, RDS, FS-D).

That's Detroit's longest of the season and it topped his own mark of four straight games during a hot spell that began Jan. 20 with a goal in a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. Since that point, Nyquist leads the NHL with 20 goals in 24 games, including his most recent two in a 4-2 loss Tuesday at the Columbus Blue Jackets. He's also tied during that span with Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux for most points in the League (31).
