Muzzin: Outdoors is fun, but we need to win

Jake Muzzin - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin is a veteran of outdoor hockey, except he played on ponds in his hometown of Woodstock, Ontario. Muzzin's first NHL outdoor game will be nothing like what he's used to. The first game in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series is on Saturday between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC). Muzzin will be blogging for NHL.com through the end of the game Saturday.

His first blog entry comes after the Kings 2-1 loss to the Ducks at Honda Center on Thursday:

ANAHEIM -- I know the outdoor game here is now, but I haven't really thought too much about it because as a team we need to put some wins together. That's been our focus.

The game at Dodger Stadium on Saturday will be fun, but we've got to get a win. We played another tight game Thursday at Honda Center, but couldn't come away with what we needed.


Daily Primer Jan. 24: Stadium Series tuneup

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 1:42 AM / NHL Insider


The New Jersey Devils are eager to take the ice at Yankee Stadium for their Coors Light NHL Stadium Series matchup against the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon. But there's the little matter of a game against the Washington Capitals at Prudential Center to take care of first.

New Jersey is sixth in the Metropolitan Division but trails the second-place Rangers by only four points and can catch their biggest rival by beating the Capitals and winning in regulation Sunday. The Capitals have fallen to seventh in the division with 52 points and have dropped six games in a row, the past four in regulation.

Here's a look at all of the action Friday:


Rangers need points from outdoor games

NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers need victories as they try to hang onto a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Having lost back-to-back games at Madison Square Garden, they'll try to bounce back when they play their next two games outdoors.

The Rangers face the New Jersey Devils on Sunday and the New York Islanders on Wednesday. Both games will be played at Yankee Stadium as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. After a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis on Thursday, the Rangers' next practice is slated for Saturday at the stadium, and it's dawning on them what the experience will be like.

"We'll see on Saturday when we get to go there and skate. I think it will start to settle in once we get there," defenseman Marc Staal said. "We'll regroup tomorrow and get back to work."

NEW YORK -- St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen left the game against the New York Rangers on Thursday night with a lower-body injury and is listed as day-to-day.

"We'll see where he is in a day or so," coach Ken Hitchcock said after the Blues' 2-1 victory at Madison Square Garden. "He'll be back."


In the Cage: Turnarounds for Pavelec, Lundqvist

Thursday, 01.23.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Justin Goldman - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Thursday during the season, Justin Goldman, a regional goalie scout for USA Hockey and founder of The Goalie Guild, will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy goaltenders in NHL.com's weekly segment: "In the Cage." From updated goalie rankings to guys you should keep a close eye on and much more, Goldman will be your fantasy goalie expert all season long.

Over the past few weeks, two goalies on opposite ends of the fantasy value spectrum have experienced positive turnarounds. This happens throughout the season for most of the top-30 fantasy goalies, but because of the workload these two carry, the timing may be shedding light on at least one hidden gem.

Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec has mostly been a fantasy dud this season. He had just 11 wins in his first 35 games and suffered an NHL-high 19 losses. Allowing an average of more than three goals a game, his ownership was hovering around the 60-percent mark in Yahoo Fantasy leagues.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
