Deslauriers solid as Ducks take 3-1 win over Kings

Monday, 09.26.2011 / 12:39 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Jeff Deslauriers showed the Anaheim Ducks they have some goaltending depth by stopping 32 of 33 shots, and three different players scored in the second period Sunday during a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center.

Kyle Palmieri, Andrew Gordon and Patrick Maroon all solved Jonathan Quick as the Ducks won their second game in as many nights after an 0-3 start to the preseason. They claimed a 4-1 victory Saturday in Vancouver against the defending Western Conference champions.

"The effort and the tenacity that we showed tonight was a huge upgrade from where we've been the first three games of the year," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "We were pretty good last night in Vancouver, but we couldn't really judge because we didn't play against the same quality of lineup we played tonight.

Streit scores in return to lead Isles past Devils

Saturday, 09.24.2011 / 11:54 PM / Roundup

NHL.com

Mark Streit wasted no time showing just how much he was missed last season.

Streit's 2010-11 season ended before it began when he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during training camp. The New York Islanders' new captain played his first competitive game in more than 16 months on Saturday night and had a goal and a pair of assists to lead the Isles to a 6-2 victory against New Jersey at the Nassau Coliseum.

"I was a little nervous in the beginning," Streit said, "but I'll tell you one thing, it was great to be out there again."

Streit wore the "C" for the first time since being named captain earlier this week. He anchored the blue line and led a power play that cashed in on three of its six chances.

Jagr excels in return to NHL

Saturday, 09.24.2011 / 1:16 AM / Roundup

Jaromir Jagr scored a goal and had an assist in his first game back in the NHL after three seasons in Russia, leading Philadelphia to a 3-1 win at Detroit.
Three years in Russia don't appear to have had any ill effects on Jaromir Jagr's scoring touch.

Jagr, who returned to the NHL this summer when he signed with Philadelphia, had a goal and assist as the Flyers won 3-1 in Detroit on Friday night.

"It may take me a while to get my timing back," the highest-scoring European-born player in NHL history told philly.com after putting up two points in his first game with his new team.

Late in the first period, Jagr set up James Van Riemsdyk's goal, then scored one of his own 52 seconds later to erase the Red Wings' 1-0 lead. Jagr's goal came when he took a pass from Scott Hartnell and wristed a 15-footer past goalie Jimmy Howard.

"I want to get -- how do you say it? -- to NHL [level] as quick as I can," Jagr said.

Matt Read scored midway through the second period, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 22 saves. Fabian Brunnstrom gave Detroit an early led, and Howard stopped 19 shots.

Wings outlast Flyers in eight-round shootout

Friday, 09.23.2011 / 12:58 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

For the second year in a row, the Philadelphia Flyers gave the fans who turned out for their annual preseason trip to the John Labatt Center in London, Ont., a night to remember.

One year after losing to Toronto in an 11-round shootout, the Flyers again provided plenty of bonus hockey. Wayne Simmonds' goal in the final minute of regulation sent the game into overtime, and it wasn't until Detroit defenseman Ian White scored in the eighth round of the shootout that the Wings left with a 4-3 win.

White's third-period goal had given the Wings a 3-1 lead. Darren Helm had a shorthanded goal in the first period for the Wings, and Valtteri Filppula scored in the second to make it 2-0. James van Riemsdyk and Matt Carle scored for the Flyers, who were playing their third game in three nights after splitting a pair with Toronto. Carle's goal with 2:45 left cut the margin to 3-2.

"We showed some resilience," van Riemsdyk said. "It's easy to get down when you're chasing the whole game. We kept fighting and we were rewarded for all the hard work we put in."

Wednesday, 09.21.2011 / 11:24 PM / Roundup

NHL.com

Mika Zibanejad gave Ottawa Senators fans a glimpse of what's to come in years ahead.

Zibanejad, the Sens' first-round pick at the NHL Entry Draft last June, scored 3:17 into overtime to give Ottawa a 2-1 victory against the Boston Bruins at Scotiabank Place on Wednesday night.

The sixth overall pick, Zibanejad took a cross-ice feed from Brian Lee and fired a slap shot past Boston's Tuukka Rask.

Lee scored the other goal for Ottawa, while Nick Foligno had two assists.

"It's a great feeling (to score the winner)," Zibanejad said. "But I feel like I got a little bit lucky to score that goal."

Bobrovsky leads Flyers past Maple Leafs

Tuesday, 09.20.2011 / 11:23 PM / Roundup

NHL.com

Ilya Bryzgalov may be the No. 1 goaltender in Philadelphia now, but Sergei Bobrovsky reminded folks Tuesday night that he is more than capable when called upon.

Bobrovsky made 27 saves as the Flyers cruised to a 4-0 victory in their preseason opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

The Flyers scored three times in the second period to break open a scoreless game, with forwards Zac Rinaldo, Wayne Simmonds and Mike Testwuide beating Leafs goalie James Reimer in an 11-minute span. Sean Couturier scored for Philadelphia in the third period.

Bobrovsky's biggest stop came during a Leafs' two-man advantage in the third period, going post-to-post to rob Leafs winger Clarke MacArthur.

Ovechkin's OT goal completes Caps' rally

Wednesday, 03.02.2011 / 2:17 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

After 59 minutes, the Washington Capitals had outshot the New York Islanders and had nothing to show for it.

Just like that, Brooks Laich tied it in the final minute -- then Alex Ovechkin scored on a breakaway 1:55 into overtime and the Capitals beat the Islanders 2-1 at the Verizon Center on Tuesday night.

"They missed the puck in our zone, and I had full speed so it was kind of a pretty goal," Ovechkin said. "I'll take it."

Ovechkin picked up a loose puck near the boards and made a mad dash down the right side before beating goalie Nathan Lawson with a backhander for a highlight goal after a mostly quiet game.

"I thought he looked lethargic a little bit," Washington coach Bruce Boudreau said. "Some superstars don't play good, but that's why they're superstars. ... because they rise to the moment at the right moment."

The New York Rangers gained some breathing room in the Eastern Conference playoff race on Tuesday night.

Wojtek Wolski tied the game late in regulation, then scored the only goal in the shootout to lift New York to a 4-3 victory against the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center.

The Rangers had lost eight of 10, but they kept fighting after Jussi Jokinen scored two third-period goals to give the Hurricanes their only lead.

"We felt we were getting a lot of scoring chances, felt that we were playing well," New York coach John Tortorella said. "We just stayed with it, we just kept on playing, and I thought as the third period went on, we kept on grinding and shifted all the momentum playing in their end zone."

The victory gave the seventh-seeded Rangers 68 points, three more than Carolina. The 'Canes moved five points in front of Buffalo and Atlanta.

Craig Anderson made quite the first impression with the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

The club's new goaltender stopped 47 shots in regulation and overtime and didn't allow a goal in the shootout in a 1-0 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

Anderson was acquired from Colorado on Friday for fellow netminder Brian Elliott. His night included a tremendous pad stop on Phil Kessel in overtime to send the game to a shootout.

Jason Spezza beat rookie Leafs goalie James Reimer with a hard shot off the crossbar in the shootout to give the Senators their first win past regulation all season.

Preds chase Howard in win over Wings

A quick start paced the Nashville Predators to a big win at Detroit on Wednesday night.

Martin Erat scored the first of Nashville's four goals and Pekka Rinne made 34 saves to help the Predators beat the Red Wings 4-1 at Joe Louis Arena.

David Legwand gave Nashville a two-goal lead in the first period. Colin Wilson scored early in the second and Sergei Kostitsyn made it 4-0 midway through the period to end Jimmy Howard's night. Howard was pulled after giving up four goals on 16 shots and was replaced by Joey MacDonald.

"Howie's making the first save and we're not there to help out on the rebounds," Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom said. "That's been hurting us. That's been costing us games."

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
