Friday, 11.06.2015 / 11:59 PM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis was taken to the hospital as a precaution Friday prior to the game against the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place.

The Penguins said he experienced symptoms that may or may not be related to his blood clot history.

"We've said all along that Pascal's health is the highest priority," general manager Jim Rutherford told the Penguins website. "We will take every precaution necessary to ensure he is in good health."

Rutherford told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that tests on Dupuis were negative but he will not play Saturday at the Calgary Flames.

Red Wings forward Zetterberg scores 300th goal

Friday, 11.06.2015 / 11:06 PM / News

TORONTO -- Detroit Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg scored his 300th NHL goal in the first period against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Friday.

Zetterberg took the puck in the neutral zone and his long shot was mishandled by Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer for a goal at 16:21.

"I think I'll remember this one," Zetterberg said. "I just tried to get it on net, and to be honest I don't really know how it went in. It was a good dump. I just tried to use the defenseman as a screen and get it on net. I don't think I actually got it on net. It was a little bit wide, but I think it must have hit his pad and went in."

New Hall of Famers touched by Bowman's presence

TORONTO -- To get to the Hockey Hall of Fame ring ceremony on Friday, the seven inductees walked up the stairs into the Great Hall and were greeted by an iconic figure.

There, in his Hockey Hall of Fame blazer, was legendary 82-year-old Scotty Bowman. He was in town for the weekend festivities, and once he found out there was to be a ring ceremony Friday afternoon at the Hall, it was a no-brainer for him to attend.

After all, Bowman coached Sergei Fedorov and Nicklas Lidstrom to Stanley Cup championships with the Detroit Red Wings in 1997, 1998 and 2002. Before that, as coach and general manager of the Buffalo Sabres, he took a chance on Phil Housley when he selected the teenager out of South St. Paul (Minn.) High School with the sixth pick in the 1982 NHL Draft.

Hockey Hall of Fame getting international identity

TORONTO -- The setting was fitting given the accents of the four NHL player inductees in the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2015.

Instead of conducting the media session in the Esso Great Hall, surrounded by every trophy and the 375 plaques depicting a drawing and biographical sketch of every honored member of the Hall of Fame, this year the inductees headed downstairs to the new Tisso World of Hockey Zone to do their interviews.

Why the World of Hockey Zone?

"It's a worldly class," said Lanny McDonald, chairman of the Hall of Fame and an honored member.

For the second straight year, the Hall of Fame is inducting a class that has four former NHL players from four countries. It had never happened before last year.

BUFFALO -- Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller will make his return to the city where his NHL career started in 2002.

The Canucks play the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; SN, MSG-B) the first time Miller will play here since he was traded by the Sabres to the St. Louis Blues in 2014.

"I've been away a lot longer than I thought I'd be, just last year getting interrupted by injury," Miller said Friday. "I thought I'd be back sooner, so it's a little delayed, but it's still a little bit emotional. But it is fun. It's fun to see how things have changed. Maybe staying away is little bit of a shock to the system, to come down here and see so much has changed. I'm really excited for the city in that regard. There's some really nice things happening. People seem to be responding really well to that. I'm hearing lots of good things. It's nice to come back here and know everything's going well."

Sean Farrell - Correspondent

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens on Friday unveiled the jersey they'll be wearing against the Boston Bruins for the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Jan. 1.

Montreal captain Max Pacioretty, defenseman P.K. Subban and right wing Brendan Gallagher modeled the white inversion of the Canadiens classic red jersey with the familiar blue band encircling the chest.

Subban, renowned throughout the NHL as a man of style, gave the Canadiens' newest fashion a rave review ahead of their first Winter Classic appearance.

"It's got to be one of the highest ratings, for sure," Subban said. "This is such a special event, it's such a special game, and the message to the players is to enjoy it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

Blues discover inadvertent rally cry in 'Roar Bacon'

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- What started out as an iPhone autocorrect has turned into a rallying cry for the St. Louis Blues.

The St. Louis Cardinals have their "Rally Squirrel"; the Blues have "Roar Bacon."

It all began Wednesday when the Blues were at United Center playing the Chicago Blackhawks. They had rallied from trailing 5-2 in the second period to tie the game 5-5. The Blues' Instagram account wrote, "Well that was something. #OurBlues roar bacon with three second-period goals to tie the game 5-5."

Roar bacon was supposed to say roar back, but as has befallen many with their not-so-smart smart phones at times, autocorrect changed the original message. It's turned into a team phenomenon and become a rallying cry in light of the Blues' comeback 6-5 overtime victory.

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will return to the lineup Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets (10 p.m. ET; FS-O, PRIME, FS-SD) after missing four games to recover from a non-emergency appendectomy.

He had surgery Oct. 28 and has been on track with meeting the necessary benchmarks in order to return. He participated fully in the morning skate Friday, centering the top line with left wing Patrick Maroon and right wing Corey Perry.

Getzlaf said he has some discomfort but that it's nothing severe enough to limit him on the ice.

Friday, 11.06.2015 / 3:23 PM / News

St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk was activated off injured reserve Friday and could return to the lineup Saturday against the Nashville Predators (8 p.m. ET; FS-TN, FS-MW).

Shattenkirk missed the past 10 games with a lower-body injury. He has one assist in three games this season.

The Blues on Friday also signed forward Martin Havlat to a one-year, two-way contract worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 if he's in the American Hockey League.
