Islanders shock Wings 4-3 in overtime

Friday, 12.31.2010 / 11:33 PM / Roundup

NHL.com

Just as they did 25 years earlier, the New York Islanders spoiled New Year's Eve for the Detroit Red Wings.

PA Parenteau's power-play goal with 1:03 left in overtime gave the Islanders a 4-3 victory at Joe Louis Arena on Friday night, sending a sellout crowd of 20,066 home disappointed -- and proving that history does sometimes repeat Itself. The only other time the Isles spent New Year's Eve in Detroit, in 1985, they won 5-4 in OT on a goal by Mikko Makela.

Those Islanders still had the core of the dynasty team of the early 1980s, while the Wings were rebuilding. The roles are reversed now -- the Isles came to Detroit 29th in the overall standings -- but the result was the same.

Flyers crown penalty-plagued Kings 7-4

Friday, 12.31.2010 / 2:41 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

The Los Angeles Kings kept filling the penalty box. The Philadelphia Flyers were content to fill the net.

Philadelphia scored a pair of power-play goals in a 3:17 span during a four-goal second period and rolled over the Los Angeles Kings 7-4 on Thursday night. Mike Richards finished with 2 goals and 2 assists and Michael Leighton stopped 32 shots in his first game since losing Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final last June.

Jeff Carter and James van Riemsdyk had the power-play goals that turned a perilous 4-3 lead into a more-secure 6-3 margin. Carter scored at the 11-minute mark during the first of three 5-on-3 power plays, and van Riemsdyk ended rookie goalie Jonathan Bernier's night by scoring at 14:17 during a one-man advantage after the Kings killed off another two-man Flyers power play.

Cam Ward was on top of his game Wednesday night, and that was bad news for the Ottawa Senators.

Zach Boychuk scored his first two goals of the season, and Ward made 37 saves as the Carolina Hurricanes earned a 4-0 win at Scotiabank Place.

Both of Boychuk's goals came in the first period. Ward made the lead stand, especially in the third when he stopped 18 shots.

Wednesday, 12.29.2010 / 12:54 AM / Roundup

Ty Conklin got his revenge on the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Conklin shut down the team that burned him for seven goals last month, stopping 25 shots as the St. Louis Blues skated away with a 3-1 victory against the Hawks at the Scottrade Center.

"There's nothing more an athlete wants than another kick at it," Blues coach Davis Payne said. "That's exactly what Ty got against these guys."

Big second period leads Kings past Ducks

Monday, 12.27.2010 / 1:07 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Marco Sturm was introduced to the “Freeway Faceoff” on Sunday night, and his first point with the Los Angeles Kings came on the go-ahead goal in a 4-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks at the Staples Center.

Sturm, traded to the Kings by the Bruins earlier this month, skated on a line with Anze Kopitar and team captain Dustin Brown. With the game knotted at one midway through the second period, Kopitar took a long lead pass from Brown and put a shot on goal that Jonas Hiller stopped. Hiller also denied Sturm on the rebound, but Kopitar pounced on that and scored his 15th of the season at 9:10 to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead

"Marco's a really smart player. He's scored 20-30 goals in this league for a number of years, and now we have that other winger that can find the back of the net pretty consistently," Brown said.

Isles snap slide by beating Ducks 3-2

Friday, 12.17.2010 / 12:55 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

One night after beating the Washington Capitals, a member of the NHL's elite, the Anaheim Ducks couldn't find a way to beat the League's worst team.

The New York Islanders, winners of just one of their previous 22 games, scored three times in 99 seconds late in the first period and held on the rest of the way for a 3-2 victory Thursday night that ended a six-game losing streak. New York had won just once, a 2-0 victory against New Jersey on Nov.  26, since capping a 4-1-2 start with an overtime win at Tampa Bay on Oct. 21.

"It's good that we won, but we're not happy," said goaltender Rick DiPietro, who made 30 saves. "When we win 10 in a row, then we'll be a bit happy."

There weren't many happy faces in the visiting locker room, where the Ducks knew they had let two points get away after an emotional 2-1 overtime win at Washington 24 hours earlier.

Lidstrom's first hat trick powers Wings past Blues

Thursday, 12.16.2010 / 2:26 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

Nineteen years and 1,442 games after he entered the NHL, Nicklas Lidstrom finally has a hat trick.

The six-time Norris Trophy winner scored three goals in a game for the first time in his NHL career on Wednesday night, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-2 victory against the St. Louis Blues at Joe Louis Arena.

Lidstrom opened the scoring 4:02 into the second period, added a power-play goal 2:46 into the third and fired the third one into an empty net with 30 seconds remaining.

"He's done everything else," coach Mike Babcock said. "He might as well do that."

Kessel ends drought as Leafs beat Habs 3-1

Sunday, 12.12.2010 / 1:18 AM / Roundup

NHL.com

A quick start translated into the desired finish for the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Tomas Kaberle's first goal in 35 games stood up as the winner as the Leafs earned a 3-1 victory against the Montreal Canadiens at the Air Canada Centre.

Phil Kessel and Kris Versteeg also scored for the Maple Leafs (11-14-4), while Mike Cammalleri had the lone goal for Montreal (18-10-2).

Kessel wasted little time in putting an end to his seven-game goal drought, as he charged hard to the net and knocked a loose puck behind Alex Auld at 7:38 of the first period.

Briere scores twice as Flyers top struggling Leafs 4-1

Friday, 12.10.2010 / 12:38 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Danny Briere was a big reason the Philadelphia Flyers went to the Stanley Cup Final in June. He's also a big reason they look like a team that could get there again next spring.

Briere, the scoring leader during the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, scored twice and added an assist as the Philadelphia Flyers won 4-1 at Toronto on Thursday night. The speedy center has 4 goals in his last four games and 16 goals so far this season.

That's a continuation of his playoff success, when he had 30 points in 23 games -- mostly while playing between Scott Hartnell and Ville Leino. Coach Peter Laviolette has wisely kept the trip intact.

"It started last year in the playoffs," said Briere, who has 37 points in 34 games against Toronto. "For some reason it just keeps going. Even through some tough times early in the season, the coach kept us together, didn't mess up our line.

Hall scored twice as Oilers rout Leafs 5-0

Friday, 12.03.2010 / 12:31 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Taylor Hall and the rest of his young teammates in Edmonton are starting to get coach Tom Renney's message.

Ten days earlier, Renney laid into his young club after a dreadful effort in a 5-0 loss at Phoenix. They've rebounded with four wins in their next five games and completed a three-game sweep on their tour of Eastern Canada with a 5-0 victory at Toronto on Thursday.

Hall had the first two-goal game of his career, giving the No. 1 pick in the 2010 Entry Draft eight goals for the season. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 33 shots for the shutout in his return from a groin injury.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
