Monday, 01.20.2014 / 12:00 PM / News


NEW YORKTampa Bay Lightning right wing Martin St. Louis, Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick and Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Jan. 19.


St. Louis paced all skaters with five goals and eight points, highlighted by a four-goal performance Jan. 18 versus the San Jose Sharks, to help the Lightning (29-16-5, 63 points) maintain second place in the Atlantic Division. He began the week with one point in each of his first three games: an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets Jan. 13, an assist in a 2 1 victory over the New York Rangers Jan. 14 and a goal in a 2-1 shootout loss to the New York Islanders Jan. 16. St. Louis then became the second player in Lightning history – and first since the team's first regular-season game Oct. 17, 1992 (Chris Kontos) – to score four goals in a game in a 5-4 loss to the Sharks Jan. 18.


Ovechkin talks Olympics on NBC's Today Show

Monday, 01.20.2014 / 11:13 AM / 2014 Olympics


Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was a guest on NBC's Today Show live from Rockefeller Center in New York City on Monday to discuss his selection to represent Russia at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

"I'm very excited," Ovechkin told NBC's Carson Daly."It's a big honor for me, for my country."

Ovechkin will be making his third Olympic appearance and was the first Russian to carry the Olympic Torch in a ceremony at Olympia, Greece on Sept. 29, 2013. In the 2006 Turin Olympics, Russia lost the bronze medal game to the Czech Republic. Four years later in Vancouver, Russia fell in the quarterfinals to Canada, the eventual gold-medal winner.


Daily Primer Jan. 20: Kings continue trip vs. Bruins

Monday, 01.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


The Boston Bruins couldn't have been happy about falling short against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, but they have little time to dwell about it.

Boston, which received two goals from Brad Marchand but suffered a 3-2 shootout loss at United Center, quickly hopped back on the plane and headed home, where they will face the Los Angeles Kings on Monday at TD Garden (3 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, NHLN-CA, NESN, FS-W).


St. Cloud's Dowd stretching his roots

Monday, 01.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

Across the state of Minnesota, pond hockey is big.

Real big.

At St. Cloud State University, senior captain Nic Dowd, who hails from the southern-most NCAA setting of Huntsville, Ala., has hockey roots defined in relation to the biggest "pond."

"Both my parents were born in England," Dowd said. "My dad's from London, my mom's from Birmingham. I was born in Huntsville."

Why did the Dowd family cross the big "pond" that provided the rare opportunity for a southern kid with English roots to ascend to the pinnacle of NCAA hockey in the hotbed of Minnesota, and maybe beyond?


Canadian Olympians trust, believe in Babcock

Monday, 01.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 Olympics

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Mike Babcock likes to say that gold-medal preparation yields gold-medal results. The players who were with him at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics can claim that they have their gold medals in part because of that very philosophy.

Canada won gold four years ago and will try to defend it next month with Babcock behind the bench at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

"Everything was laid out there for us when we got to the Olympics," Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith told NHL.com. "We were very well-prepared in what we wanted to accomplish on the ice as far as our systems and the way we wanted to play as a team. It was also communicated to us very clearly about what the other team's tendencies were, how they played their systems and the players on their team. That was one thing that stood out for me was how well prepared we were as players."

That preparation has players like Keith and the 10 others who played for Canada in Vancouver trusting that Babcock again is the ideal coach for them in a short tournament.


With Kreider's help, Nash finds scoring touch

Sunday, 01.19.2014 / 11:45 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Even when he struggled early this season, scoring seven goals in his first 26 games and missing 17 additional games with a concussion, Rick Nash figured he'd eventually start lighting the lamp again. But it's the presence of one of the New York Rangers' bright young stars that is helping the five-time All-Star through a scoring stretch that is among the best of his impressive career.

"I think the only change from watching video clips is I'm playing on the inside more," Nash said after scoring two goals in a 4-1 win against the Washington Capitals at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. "I could sense when I first came back [from injury] I was on the outside a lot. I think now I'm trying to get to the inside and make things happen."

With seven goals in his past eight games, that space inside is enabled in part by the presence of linemate Chris Kreider.


Analysis: Blackhawks continue to raise the bar

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks spent the weekend reminding the rest of the NHL why they are the defending champions. The Boston Bruins made some progress in trying to find their way without Dennis Seidenberg.

Chicago dominated the League-leading Anaheim Ducks for about 55 minutes Friday, with only a strong night from goaltender Jonas Hiller and a couple of quick lapses keeping the Blackhawks from a more lopsided victory than the 4-2 final score. The Blackhawks began the game Sunday in the same manner, but the Bruins eventually provided a stern test before Chicago prevailed 3-2 in a shootout at United Center.

"I think these matchups were something that might have sparked us a little bit," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. "To go head-to-head with Anaheim, a team that has had a lot of success, and has been winning a lot of games lately, I think we were ready for that one. It was the same with the matchup we had [Sunday]. We've got to keep up with that effort regardless of who we're playing."

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
