Ducks scratch Getzlaf for second straight game

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 10:22 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was scratched Wednesday to give him another night of rest.

The move came after coach Bruce Boudreau left open the possibility of Getzlaf sitting when he did not participate in the morning skate before Anaheim played the Dallas Stars at Honda Center.

It is the second straight game that Getzlaf has been scratched. Boudreau suggested after the Ducks' 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche last Friday that Getzlaf wasn't fully healthy, although Getzlaf has practiced in each of the past two days.

Red Wings' Cole out for season with spine contusion

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 3:26 PM / News

NHL.com

Detroit Red Wings forward Erik Cole said Wednesday he has been advised by doctors to sit out the remainder of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs because of a spine contusion.

Cole said he sustained the injury in the first period of an overtime loss against the Arizona Coyotes on March 24. He had missed the past eight games with what was termed a neck injury. The Red Wings acquired the veteran left wing in a trade with the Dallas Stars on March 1.

"I consulted with a few doctors last week and I've been advised not to play the remainder of this season," Cole said Wednesday, according to MLive.com. "Just really disappointing and I was looking forward to be a part of the playoff run here and helping this team make a run to the [Stanley] Cup and I'm not going to be able to do that.

"Doctors feel that right now there's just a little too much risk for me to be playing, so just going to have to wait and see how things go down the road."

Canadiens' Pacioretty could return for start of playoffs

Wednesday, 04.08.2015 / 12:58 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will miss the final two games of the regular season with an upper-body injury, but there is a possibility he will return in time for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, coach Michel Therrien said Wednesday.

"It's a heavy loss, we won't hide that," Therrien said after practice. "He's a guy that had quality ice time, not only offensively but defensively. At the end of games when we're up a goal, he's the guy we send on the ice. We used him on the penalty kill. But don't make the mistake of tossing him aside. There's a possibility he plays next week."

ROOKIES RALLY SENATORS AS PLAYOFF PUSH CONTINUES

Mike Hoffman scored the tying goal with 1:48 left in regulation and Mark Stone scored at 2:43 of overtime to rally the Ottawa Senators from an early three-goal deficit to a 4-3 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins, their fourth victory in their past five games (4-0-1).

* The Senators (41-26-13, 95 points) moved into a tie with the idle Boston Bruins (41-25-13, 95 points) in terms of points for the final wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference. They also kept pace with the Detroit Red Wings (42-25-13, 97 points), who won in regulation to move into third place in the Atlantic Division. Boston has one game in hand on both Detroit and Ottawa, while the Red Wings lead in the ROW tiebreaker (DET: 38, BOS: 37, OTT: 35).

* Elias Sports Bureau says the Senators overcame a 3-0 deficit to win for the second time this season, following a 4-3 overtime win on Dec. 7 vs. VAN.

Jagr interested in Panthers return, may play at Worlds

Tuesday, 04.07.2015 / 4:28 PM / News

Michael Langr - NHL.com Correspondent

Jaromir Jagr won't be hanging up his skates for the summer following the Florida Panthers' final two regular-season games against the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils.

The 43-year-old forward has decided to join the Czech National Team at training camp for the IIHF World Championship in Prague this May, and if he sees his performance on the larger ice surface as sufficient, he will represent the Czech Republic.

Jagr told Czech Daily Sport he agreed with Czech coach Vladimir Ruzicka to join practices and play in exhibition games to see if he feels comfortable before making a final decision on playing in the World Championship.

"When the NHL season is over, I'll pack up as soon as possible and come back to the Czech Republic," Jagr told Daily Sport. "I'm gonna join the national team. But it doesn't automatically mean I'll play at the Worlds. I'll work at practices and see how it turns out."

Blackhawks' Kane takes slap shots, progressing well

Tuesday, 04.07.2015 / 3:52 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Anybody who thinks right wing Patrick Kane might return early from surgery to repair his fractured left clavicle only needs to glance at the Chicago Blackhawks' opponent at United Center on Tuesday.

There's a strong chance Minnesota Wild left wing Jason Zucker will play against the Blackhawks (8:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CSN-CH) about eight weeks after having surgery Feb. 12 to repair his right clavicle. Even if Zucker doesn't play Tuesday, his return is close.

Kane, who was injured Feb. 24 and had surgery the next day, started participating in practices and morning skates April 1. The only limitations were no contact and no slap shots, but Tuesday morning he took multiple one-timer slap shots.

"He's progressing real well," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "Every day he seems like he's getting a little stronger. His skating has always been fine and he's handling the puck extremely well, so it's good signs every day, seeing the progress."
