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.

The Anaheim Ducks on Friday recalled goaltender John Gibson from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.

Gibson, a 2011 second-round pick (No. 39), is 11-9-3 with a 2.61 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in 26 games in his first full professional season.

Last season Gibson helped the United States to the bronze medal at the 2013 IIHF World Championship, posting a 1.56 GAA and .951 save percentage in five games.

That came a few months after he backstopped the U.S. to the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship. Gibson had a tournament-leading 1.36 GAA and .955 save percentage en route to being named the tournament's best goaltender and most valuable player.

The Nashville Predators announced Friday that goaltender Pekka Rinne, limited to nine games this season due to a hip infection, has been cleared to begin weight-bearing exercises under a doctor's supervision.

"We are encouraged and pleased to report that Pekka is moving on to the next stage in his recovery and rehabilitation," the Predators said in a statement released Friday. "He has been cleared to begin weight-bearing exercises under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Byrd. There is no timetable for this stage as that will be evaluated by Dr. Byrd and our medical team on a daily basis. Our primary objective is to insure Pekka's full recovery and return to the ice by taking every possible precaution throughout the process. We will provide further updates when available."

Rinne hasn't played since Oct. 22. In his absence the Predators have used a tandem of Carter Hutton, who had one game of NHL experience prior to this season, and Marek Mazanec, in his first season playing in North America.

Canucks still developing mindset to finish games

Friday, 01.10.2014 / 12:42 PM / NHL Insider

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- John Tortorella isn't worrying so much about Xs and Os after watching his Vancouver Canucks give up a goal and blow a lead with the opposing goalie pulled for the fifth time this season.

The first-year Canucks coach dismissed the shootout as a "gimmick" when asked about his team's 4-for-32 futility in the tiebreaker. And he isn't wondering if he has the personnel to beat top teams after giving up 98 shots in weekend losses to the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings that left Vancouver with four wins in 13 games against teams above them in the Western Conference standings.

For Tortorella it's all about a mindset, and in his estimation so far the Canucks haven't developed the right one to beat the best.

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
