Preseason roundup: Irwin leads Bruins past Devils

Sunday, 09.20.2015 / 11:01 PM / News

Matt Irwin scored twice on the power play and Jonas Gustavsson and Jeremy Smith combined for a shutout in the Boston Bruins' 2-0 win against the New Jersey Devils at Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I.

Irwin, who had eight goals in 53 games for the San Jose Sharks last season, opened the scoring at 6:12 of the second period. He scored again in the third during a 5-on-3 man advantage.

"He's been known for that," Bruins coach Claude Julien said of Irwin. "I think last year when he scored goals, it's not about the power of his shot. I think he's really good at finding those lanes to the net, and when there's a good screen there he finds places to put the puck. That second goal was a good example of that."

Flyers' Cowick, daughter visit Cup at Hockeyville

NORTH SAANICH, British Columbia -- For Bruce Cowick, the chance to get up close and personal with the Stanley Cup at the Kraft Hockeyville celebrations on Sunday was nothing new.

Cowick had already hoisted the Cup as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers team that won it in 1974. But what Cowick never got to do was share the Stanley Cup with his daughter, Sherri, who wasn't born when he won it, so they drove 40 minutes to North Saanich to see it.

Seeing Sherri fighting back tears when she found his name on the Cup, the trip was worth it.

"I didn't expect to get that emotional," Sherri told, still wiping tears from her cheeks. "Growing up, he was just my dad who played hockey and when you are a kid it doesn't mean as much; you maybe don't understand the magnitude until you are an adult. But becoming a parent yourself, it just resonates on a totally different level."

The Edmonton Oilers signed defenseman Oscar Klefbom to a seven-year contract Sunday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but ESPN reported Klefbom's contract will have an average annual value of $4.167 million.

"He's a top-four [defensemen] and he's going to be a top-two [defensemen] at some point," general manager Peter Chiarelli told the Oilers website. "He plays a real responsible game and he moves the puck. We project on him, but we're fairly confident on it."

VICTORIA, British Columbia -- The NHL is bringing the Stanley Cup to the Panorama Recreation Center on Sunday to help celebrate North Saanich winning Kraft Hockeyville in Canada 2015.

Without knowing it, the NHL has already been to Larry Orr's garage around the corner, a place where the spirit of hockey and community thrives every day in a never-locked garage at the top of a driveway that starts with a skate perched on small sign that reads, "skate sharpening."

Coyotes aim to respond after last season's struggles

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Coyotes followed up their most disappointing season in the desert with even more bad luck, stuck on the outside looking in while the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres scooped up the two "can't miss" prospects at the 2015 NHL Draft.

But general manager Don Maloney rebounded from missing out on Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel with a very active few weeks of trades and free agent acquisitions. They are also very pleased with the No. 3 pick, forward Dylan Strome, although another year in juniors is the likely scenario.

Doan, Domi among X-factors for Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Coyotes finished last in the Western Conference last season and have not made the Stanley Cup Playoffs since reaching the Western Conference Final in 2012. They spent the offseason trying to remedy those issues.

"Our whole organization put in a lot of work this summer," coach Dave Tippett told the Coyotes website on Thursday. "There was a lot of things that we had to address. … You just don't go through a season like we did last year without trying to fix a lot of things and that was the case this summer."

Some of that work included signing former Coyotes players (defenseman Zbynek Michalek and forwards Antoine Vermette and Boyd Gordon), who are expected to have an impact this season. But the play of captain Shane Doan and goalie Mike Smith are among the factors that will influence whether the Coyotes reach the playoffs or take part in the NHL Draft Lottery again next spring.

Here are three X-factors that will determine the success of the Coyotes this season:

Sabres hope to begin putting rebuild behind them

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres head into the 2015-16 season with a much different look and feel about them compared to the recent past.

Since February, Buffalo has added high-end players in trades, through free agency and at the 2015 NHL Draft, and the fruits of a rebuild that began in earnest in 2013, the Sabres hope, will start to show this season.

After having the worst record in the NHL each of the past two seasons, hopes are high in Buffalo that wins will outnumber losses and the days of missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs will come to an end in the near future.

Reinhart, Kane among X-factors for Sabres

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres' fortunes this season hinge upon getting a host of new players to work together and help them out of a hole that saw them finish last in the NHL each of the past two seasons.

Here are three X-factors that will impact whether the Sabres can climb out of the basement:

Their other No. 2 pick -- Competition is going to be a big part of Sabres training camp at forward and on defense, but forward Sam Reinhart, who they selected in the first round (No. 2) at the 2014 NHL Draft, has gotten lost in the mix.

The additions of Jack Eichel, the No. 2 pick in 2015, and Ryan O'Reilly, who signed as an unrestricted free agent, have pushed Reinhart out of the spotlight at center. With Zemgus Girgensons returning from an ankle injury that ended his 2014-2015 season, the addition of veteran David Legwand, and the solid play of Johan Larsson last season, Reinhart is in for a big test in training camp.

Quote of the Day

I don't know the room very well yet. I don't know how we're going to react in certain situations. We've had a couple of minor tests throughout the [preseason] ... We'll get to know each other as the year goes on. We'll figure it out.
