Sunday, 01.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Can the Detroit Red Wings put an end to the Anaheim Ducks' remarkable run at Honda Center on Sunday night?

Anaheim, the only team that has yet to lose in regulation on home ice this season (18-0-2), became the seventh team in NHL history to win 16-plus games in a 17-game stretch (16-1-0) with a 5-3 win against the host Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday.

The Ducks return home to face the Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, FS-D, PRIME), who could be without Daniel Alfredsson (back spasms), Pavel Datsyuk (lower body), Johan Franzen (head), Darren Helm (groin), Jonathan Ericsson (broken ribs), Stephen Weiss (hernia) and Jonas Gustavsson (groin).

Here's a closer look at the action Sunday:

Rangers' Kreider turning potential into production

Sunday, 01.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

Chris Kreider was an NHL record-setter before he ever played a regular-season game.

Kreider, the 19th player chosen at the 2009 NHL Draft, scored five goals for the New York Rangers during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, sparking a run that carried them within two wins of their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final since 1994. He did it despite coming in cold: Kreider signed with the Rangers after the regular season because he was busy helping Boston College win the NCAA championship.

His five postseason goals broke Eddie Mazur's 60-year-old mark for the most playoff goals by a player who had yet to skate in a regular-season game. Though Kreider was used to being a star -- he is a two-time NCAA champion at BC and a goal medalist at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship, this was a new kind of fame that found him in a New York minute.

Sunday, 01.12.2014 / 1:55 AM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- Add goalie Jimmy Howard to the list of injured Detroit Red Wings.

Howard hurt his hip during a 44-save win against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night and won't be available Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks and possibly for longer, coach Mike Babcock said.

"Hurt his hip flexor," Babcock said. "He's out."

Asked during a television interview if Howard is out for a while, Babcock replied, "I don't know. You know how it is here."

Petr Mrazek will start in goal Sunday for Detroit, and Babcock wasn't sure if Jonas Gustavsson was fit to be the backup.

Saturday, 01.11.2014 / 11:35 PM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr passed former Pittsburgh Penguins star and teammate Mario Lemieux on the NHL all-time points list Saturday.

Jagr assisted on Marek Zidlicky's goal with 2.1 seconds to go in overtime against the Florida Panthers at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Travis Zajac won a faceoff back to Jagr; he backhanded a pass to Zidlicky, whose shot from above the right circle beat Tim Thomas to give New Jersey a 2-1 victory.

"Give credit to Travis," Jagr told MSG Network. "It's not easy to win it exactly where you wanted to win it."

Ducks' Getzlaf leaves game with lower-body injury

Saturday, 01.11.2014 / 11:29 PM / News

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

PHOENIX -- Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf did not return to the game Saturday against the Phoenix Coyotes because of a lower-body injury.

Getzlaf was hit it the right foot by a shot during the second period. The Ducks said he was held out for precautionary reasons.

"By the time he got back from the X-ray, which was negative, we were a third of the way through the third period," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We figured it was better that he ice it and get ready for tomorrow. I'm sure if it was a different situation, he would have gone in."

Nolan: No direct talks yet with new Sabres GM

Saturday, 01.11.2014 / 8:40 PM / News

NHL.com

Ted Nolan said Saturday he has not had direct talks with new Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray about becoming the team's permanent, rather than interim, coach.

Murray on Friday told Sportsnet that Nolan's title would change in the next few weeks.

"Like I've mentioned before, one of these days, I hope [the 'interim' is lifted], but it's not one of my things I'm thinking about," Nolan told the Sabres website. "It's trying to get this team better right now and coaching this team to the best of my ability. Whatever happens down the road will happen, and I feel confident in my ability, but we'll see."

Fisher helping Predators by adding offense

Saturday, 01.11.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Mike Fisher was talking Thursday to a couple of reporters from Ottawa who have covered much of the 33-year-old center's career.

"Certainly, I've been going well here this last little while," said Fisher, who will celebrate three years with the Nashville Predators on Feb. 10. "Whatever reason, you guys know I've been streaky in the past a little bit. You just take it when it comes."

Lately, Fisher has been doing just that. In Nashville's seven games since Dec. 28, Fisher has four goals and six assists, helping to supply a good deal of the Predators' offense during a 3-2-2 stretch. As a testament to Fisher's streakiness, he had one point in the preceding nine games. The Predators went 3-5-1 during that stretch, a good indication as to what he means to them offensively.
