Blackhawks' Keith, Rozsival to play against Blues

Friday, 11.13.2015 / 4:06 PM / News

Brian Hedger - Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith will return from injury and be in the lineup Saturday against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center (8 p.m. ET; WGN, FS-MW), coach Joel Quenneville said after practice Friday.

Keith, 32, had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee Oct. 20 and was projected to miss 4-6 weeks. The Blackhawks are 5-4-1 since the reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner as MVP of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs left the lineup.

"[Keith] should enhance all situational plays," Quenneville said. "It's a big void. I thought defensively [we weren't] bad in that stretch [without him], but certainly his presence can make a big difference."

Elias to travel with Devils on road trip: report

Friday, 11.13.2015 / 3:30 PM / News

New Jersey Devils left wing Patrik Elias, who has been out with a right knee injury since the preseason, will travel with the Devils on a three-game road trip against Western Conference opponents next week, coach John Hynes told on Friday.

"Right now, we're planning on him coming on the trip and trying to get him back into some team practices," Hynes said. "Not sure exactly when that's going to be, but it looks like there's been some good progression here. Nothing is imminent, but the next step for him is now getting into an everyday routine at some point, whether he's going to be practicing with the team. He's been in all the meetings and things like that, but just the normalcy of being in the locker room, being around the guys and doing those things, that's another step in guy's rehab when they've been out for as long as he has."

Red Wings' Pulkkinen fined for diving/embellishment

NHL Public Relations

NEW YORK – Detroit Red Wings forward Teemu Pulkkinen has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced today.

NHL Rule 64 is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. Fines are assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale outlined below:

Citation# Player Fine(s) * Head Coach Fine(s)
1 $2,000 N/A
2 $3,000 N/A
3 $4,000 N/A
4 $5,000 N/A
5 $5,000 $2,000
6 $5,000 $3,000
7 $5,000 $4,000
8 $5,000 $5,000
* For Head Coach, each FINE issued to a player on his Club counts toward total.

Citations are issued by the National Hockey League Hockey Operations Department, which tracks all games, logs all penalties for diving or embellishment and flags all plays not called on the ice that in its opinion were deserving of such a penalty. A Citation is issued once Hockey Operations, through its internal deliberations, is convinced that a player warrants sanction.

Lundqvist is perfect pie-stopper on 'Tonight Show'

Thursday, 11.12.2015 / 12:34 PM / News

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's puck-stopping ability has helped him win a Vezina Trophy, an Olympic gold medal and play in three NHL All-Star Games.

So how hard could it for him to stop miniature pumpkin pies?

"Piece of cake," Lundqvist said during an appearance Wednesday on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on NBC.

Fallon had 10 seconds to try to shoot as many pies as he could past Lundqvist. The Rangers goaltender, who has a .949 save percentage in 12 NHL games, had a shutout against Fallon. And they weren't all easy saves; Lundqvist had to stretch to make a low glove save on the first pie, then react quickly to make a head-high blocker save on the second shot.
