Unmasked: Active glove helps Predators' Rinne

Thursday, 11.06.2014 / 3:00 AM / Unmasked

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian circled at the edge of the right faceoff circle and, spotting a crowd forming in front of the Nashville Predators goal, shot the puck along the ice into a thicket of skates.

After a short delay, as everyone, including the referees, waited for the intended scramble, Pekka Rinne finally held up his glove, offering proof it was time to blow the whistle and line up for a faceoff.

The puck, as it so often does, rested safely inside Rinne's glove.

Though there may be debate about the best glove hand in the NHL, there is little argument about who has the most active.

Rinne does a lot more than flash the leather on shots destined for the top left corner. The 32-year-old uses his glove to catch pucks everywhere, reaching across his body to snag them out of the air, down to trap them against his pads, or, as he did against Kassian, scoop them off the ice like a shortstop.

USNTDP's Greenway using size to his advantage

Thursday, 11.06.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Jordan Greenway pulls no punches when it comes to discussing the presence he provides whenever he steps on the ice.

Big, physical, and at times ornery.

"I'm 6-foot-5 so I guess I'm a power forward, right," Greenway said. "I've got some pretty good skill and I like to drive the net a lot, can usually come out of the corners with the puck and can create more space for the skilled guys on the team."

He's a big fan of New York Rangers forward Rick Nash. The 222-pound left wing appreciates players who fight for pucks along the wall and go to the net hard; it's what has given him the attention he deserves as a top prospect for the 2015 NHL Draft.

Greenway, an A-rated prospect on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list for the draft, has one goal, nine points and 20 penalty minutes in 13 games for the United States National Team Development Program Under-18 team.

Blues survive wild scramble to escape with win

Thursday, 11.06.2014 / 3:00 AM / Defenders of the Ice

NHL.com

Vladimir Tarasenko's highlight-reel goal grabbed all the attention in the St. Louis Blues' 4-3 shootout win Monday against the New York Rangers, but the hard work and extra effort of Tarasenko's teammates bailed out goalie Brian Elliott early in the third period to eventually help St. Louis escape Madison Square Garden with its fifth straight victory.

Shortly after Rangers center Kevin Hayes missed an open net, Elliott was out of position when all five Blues on the ice crashed the net, blocking shots and scrambling to get the puck out of harm's way. Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson made the initial save of Hayes' backhand attempt. Lee Stempniak tried to tap the puck into the open net, but David Backes pushed it away with his skate just before it crossed the goal line. Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk then positioned himself in front of the goal to stop Chris Kreider's shot before Elliott covered the puck to end the wild sequence.

Back on wing, Rangers' St. Louis finds scoring touch

Thursday, 11.06.2014 / 12:36 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- Given Martin St. Louis' track record, it seemed inevitable that he would eventually start to score in bunches.

The New York Rangers right wing scored for the second straight game Wednesday and assisted on Derick Brassard's overtime goal in a 4-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings at Madison Square Garden.

St. Louis, 39, had a tough start to the season, scoring one goal through New York's first 10 games. Some of that could be attributed to the leg injury No. 1 center Derek Stepan sustained in training camp. The Stepan injury forced Rangers coach Alain Vigneault to ask St. Louis to spend some time at center.

St. Louis went the first five games of the season without a goal before he finally broke through against the San Jose Sharks on Oct. 19. He then went another four games without a goal.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
