Saturday, 01.16.2016 / 9:36 PM / News

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby was pulled in the second period after allowing three goals to the Buffalo Sabres.

Holtby was replaced by Philipp Grubauer 7:14 into the period after Evander Kane scored the Sabres' third goal on their 16th shot.

Buffalo won 4-1, Holtby's first loss in regulation in 23 decisions (20-0-2). He fell one game short of tying the Capitals record set by Jose Theodore, who went 20-0-3 from Jan. 13 to April 9, 2010.

LOS ANGELES -- When center Anze Kopitar was taken by the Los Angeles Kings with the 11th pick in the 2005 NHL draft, he joined a struggling franchise that was years away from relevancy, let alone championships.

Two Stanley Cup titles later, there’s no place he’d rather be, and it will be where he stays after agreeing Saturday to an eight-year contract extension. No financial terms were disclosed, but TSN reported that it’s worth $80 million, an average annual value of $10 million.

“I’ve been a part of this organization when we went through pretty big struggles and not very fun years when we played,” Kopitar said after a 5-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators at Staples Center. “We turned that around and the last few years have been pretty exciting for everybody … knowing we have a winning team here, that’s what makes you want to stay here for an extended period of time.”

Penguins' Letang a game-time decision vs. Hurricanes

Saturday, 01.16.2016 / 5:25 PM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang did not practice Saturday and will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Carolina Hurricanes (3 p.m. ET; ROOT, FS-CR).

Letang appeared to sustain an injury to his right arm when he was checked by Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Callahan late in the second period Friday.

Letang returned and finished the 5-4 overtime loss after he had X-rays between periods.

"[Kris] was being evaluated today," coach Mike Sullivan told the Penguins website Saturday. "We haven't gotten any definitive results, so right now he'll be a game-time decision for tomorrow."

Panthers' Ekblad to miss next two games: report

Saturday, 01.16.2016 / 5:18 PM / News

Florida Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad won't play Sunday or Monday but could return from injury Friday, the Miami Herald reported.

Ekblad was injured on a hit by Edmonton Oilers forward Matt Hendricks early in the second period of a 2-1 Florida win last Sunday. There was no penalty called on the play, but Hendricks was suspended three games by the NHL Department of Player Safety.

In the first game Ekblad missed, the Panthers had a 12-game winning streak ended by the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2 in overtime. Florida then lost 6-0 to the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.

Blues goalie Elliott paying homage to Cujo with mask

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott was always enamored with the goalie equipment Curtis Joseph wore during his time with the organization.

Each played at the University of Wisconsin, so the connection became instantaneous, especially for Elliott growing up.

Elliott, who plays against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday (6 p.m. ET; NHLN, TVA Sports, SN, FS-MW), will pay tribute to Joseph by wearing the themed "Cujo" mask. He's already been wearing Joseph's trademark blue pads and mitts the past two-plus weeks.

Elliott didn't completely copy the look Joseph wore. The mask not only features Joseph's rabid dog but Elliott's signature moose and the University of Wisconsin logo.

"His mask when he was first here, with the two trumpets on top and the blue notes on the chin with the music sheet, it always stuck out in my head as a kid," Elliott said. "The rabid dog is his signature, so I didn't want to copy that one, but I wanted to pay tribute to him because I idolized him, and it looks cool too.

"He was in Heaton gear, which they don't make anymore. The gear was all blue, and I thought it looked really cool."

"He should be motivated," Ducks general manager Bob Murray said. "He needed a change of scenery, and we all know he can get hot. We need someone to get hot."

Patrick Kane (3-1—4) had the first regular-season hat trick of his NHL career (623 GP) to lead the Chicago Blackhawks past the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 for their 10th consecutive victory, their longest such run since Feb. 15–March 6, 2013 (11-0-0).

* At 30-13-4 (64 points), the Blackhawks passed the Dallas Stars (29-12-4, 62 points), who lost in regulation, for sole possession of first place in the Central Division and Western Conference.

* Kane had his third multigoal game of the season and took sole possession of first in the NHL with 28 goals. Kane had an assist for his second four-point game of 2015-16 (also Nov. 8 vs. EDM: 1-3—4) and leads the NHL in assists (39) and points (67).

* Kane's second goal was his League-leading 14th power-play goal of the season, eclipsing his single-season career high of 13 in 2008-09 (80 GP). Per the Elias Sports Bureau, Kane is the first Blackhawks player to score 14 or more power-play goals in a season since 1998-99, when Tony Amonte had 14 (82 GP).

Drouin awaits potential trade from Lightning

Friday, 01.15.2016 / 11:25 PM / News

Jonathan Drouin continues to wait for a possible trade two weeks after the Tampa Bay Lightning forward was demoted to the American Hockey League and a request made in November became public.

"I don't really decide. It's up to them (Tampa Bay)," Drouin told after playing his fifth AHL game Friday. "But we'll see what happens the next couple days."

As of late Friday, no deal had been reached by Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman, who last week acknowledged Drouin's request but said he would trade him only if it improved the Lightning on the ice moving forward.

"I'm just saying we'll see what's going on, and ... if I go up or get traded," Drouin said. "So, I'll see how it goes."

Blackhawks' Kane has first regular-season hat trick

Friday, 01.15.2016 / 10:17 PM / News

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane got his first regular-season NHL hat trick Friday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Kane scored twice in the second period then into an empty net with 2:12 left in the third for his first hat trick in his 623rd game.

"I have had a couple of important ones in the playoffs, and you probably wouldn't trade them for anything," Kane said. "It is nice to get that first one in the regular season and get it out of the way, so to speak. Tonight I was the beneficiary of some great plays by my teammates."
