Flyers beat Dallas 3-1 for NHL-best 35th win

Sunday, 02.06.2011 / 12:50 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

The Philadelphia Flyers are the only team in the NHL without a shutout. They're also the only one with 35 victories.

The Flyers again "settled" for a win on Saturday, beating the Dallas Stars 3-1 at the Wells Fargo Center. Andrej Meszaros and Darroll Powe each scored on long-distance wrist shots, and Brian Boucher stopped 30 shots. Jeff Carter added his 25th goal for the Flyers, who increased their Atlantic Division lead over Pittsburgh to three points.

Brenden Morrow spoiled what could have been Philadelphia's first shutout by scoring in the second period for the Stars.

"We're not going to get a shutout this year," Boucher said. "It's just not going to happen. We'll just keep trying to win games and we'll be happy with that."

"I think it's one of those things, you cherish the moment, but at the same time we've got to forget about it," Roloson said. "We've got another big game on Friday against Washington."

Thomas shines again as B's edge Panthers 2-1

Thursday, 01.27.2011 / 2:15 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Boston goalie Tim Thomas had one last All-Star performance in him before he heads to Raleigh, N.C., for the 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover.

Thomas stopped 34 shots to lead the Bruins to a 2-1 victory against the Florida Panthers at TD Garden on Wednesday night. The Boston goaltender leads the League with a 1.81 goals-against average and a .945 save percentage and was within 12 minutes of breaking a first-place tie in shutouts.

"Five years ago, it was a pipe dream that I'd ever be in an NHL All-Star game," said Thomas, who will be making his third All-Star appearance. "I understand it's hard for some guys who need a break. But I, for one, am excited."

Roloson earns another shutout as Bolts blank Leafs

Wednesday, 01.26.2011 / 12:15 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

He's played just 10 games as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning, but Dwayne Roloson already has three shutouts with his new club.

Roloson -- acquired on New Year's Day from the New York Islanders -- made 26 saves in his third shutout in 10 games this month, Teddy Purcell had a goal and an assist, and the Lightning beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0 at the St. Pete Times Forum on Tuesday night for their fifth straight victory.

"I've forgotten what the score was," Roloson said. "I know we won, and that's all that matters to me."

"He's been in the League this long for a reason," Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf said of the 41-year-old Roloson. "If he sees the puck, like any goalie in the League, he's going to stop it. Tonight he played well, but we didn't generate a lot in the first to really test him any."

Giguere foils old team as Leafs beat Ducks 5-2

Friday, 01.21.2011 / 12:23 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Jean-Sebastien Giguere and the Toronto Maple Leafs both had some extra incentive to win on Thursday night -- and they did.

Giguere, acquired from Anaheim a year ago, made 26 saves to beat his old team in the first meeting since the trade and the Leafs rebounded from a horrid effort the night before in New York to beat the Ducks 5-2.

Giguere, who spent a decade with the Ducks and led them to the Stanley Cup in 2007, admitted he had some pre-game jitters as he prepared to face his old team.

"I wanted to just have a strong game," said Giguere, who finished with 26 saves. "Not because I'm bitter or anything like that. You want to play well against guys you know. It's a fun challenge.

Cammalleri, Pacioretty injured in Habs' loss at Buffalo

Wednesday, 01.19.2011 / 12:34 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

It had to be one of the more painful losses in recent memory for the Montreal Canadiens.

Literally.

Jason Pominville scored a power-play goal 1:09 into overtime lifting the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-1 victory against the injury-depleted Habs at HSBC Arena on Tuesday night.

The Canadiens played much of the game minus two forwards when Michael Cammalleri suffered a separated shoulder and Max Pacioretty was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons after being struck in the right side by teammate James Wisniewski's shot in the first period. Cammalleri will miss at least two weeks.

Tavares' hat trick helps Isles beat Sabres 5-3

Sunday, 01.16.2011 / 12:37 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

After a slow start, John Tavares is showing why the New York Islanders were so eager to take him with the first pick in the 2009 Entry Draft.

The second-year center continued his scoring surge, scoring a natural hat trick in just 5:46 of the second period to lead the Islanders to a 5-3 victory against the Buffalo Sabres at the Nassau Coliseum.

"Getting a natural hat trick is always nice," Tavares said. "We did a lot of things right."

No one has been doing more things right than Tavares, who has 10 goals and 19 points in New York's last 15 games -- a stretch in while the Islanders are 9-4-2 after suffering through 20 losses in a span of 21 games.

Briere's four-point night leads Flyers past Sabres

Tuesday, 01.11.2011 / 11:49 PM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Danny Briere says being left off the All-Star roster wasn't the motivating factor in his big night against his former team.

Hours after being snubbed, Briere scored his team-leading 22nd goal and added three assists in helping Philadelphia overcome a two-goal deficit in a 5-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres at HSBC Arena on Tuesday night.

"I don't think it had too much to do with that," Briere chuckled when asked whether being left off the All-Star list was motivation for his four-point night. "It's out of my control. There's not much I can do about it."

Teammate Scott Hartnell wasn't so politically correct.

Flyers finally win in Detroit

Monday, 01.03.2011 / 12:02 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Entering Sunday's action, Ronald Reagan was President of the United States the last time the Philadelphia Flyers won in Detroit.

The skid is finally over.

James van Riemsdyk, Daniel Carcillo and Scott Hartnell scored to help Philadelphia win for the first time in Detroit in more than 22 years as it pulled out a 3-2 victory against the Red Wings.

The Flyers were 0-14-2 at Joe Louis Arena since Nov. 4, 1988.

"I don't think it was in our mind to get the win for that reason," said Brian Boucher, who made 25 saves. "We haven't been playing well the last four games and we wanted to get a big win."

Stafford's hat trick helps Sabres rally past B's

Sunday, 01.02.2011 / 1:09 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Drew Stafford just wouldn't take no for an answer on Saturday night.

Stafford scored three times, including the overtime-forcing goal with 28 seconds left in regulation, as the Sabres rallied from a 4-2 first-period deficit and pulled out a dramatic 7-6 win against the Boston Bruins on Tyler Ennis' decisive shootout tally.

"You don't want to fold up when you're down. It's not in your game plan," said Stafford, who has four career hat tricks -- two in his last eight games. "We knew if we kept battling, we had a chance to take this game."

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
