MacLean puts Senators through tough practice

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 7:14 PM / News


Two days after Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said he wasn't happy with the effort in a 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames, his players paid the price.

The Senators spent more than 80 minutes Friday at an intense practice in Calgary that included special-teams work, breakouts and one battle drill that led to a fight between defenseman Jared Cowen and forward Chris Neil. The Ottawa Citizen reported they dropped the gloves and got in a few punches before teammates broke it up.

"We need more of it, preferably when the games are on, but we need more, I don't know, just be harder," MacLean told the Senators website afterward. "That's playing harder. If you're playing harder in practice that stuff is going to practice. Boys are going to be boys, men are going to be men, and we need more of it."

Canada goalie Shannon Szabados to join SPHL team

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 4:12 PM / News


Goaltender Shannon Szabados, who helped the Canada women's hockey team win a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, agreed Friday to join to the Columbus Cottonmouths of the Southern Professional Hockey League.

Szabados wrote on her Twitter account that she will join the team March 12 and be available for the final five games of the regular season. The Cottonmouths announced a press conference for March 13 to introduce her.

The 27-year-old goaltender allowed three goals (one even-strength) in three games at the Olympics, and led the tournament with an 0.96 goals-against average and .954 save percentage. She stopped 27 of 29 shots in Canada's 3-2 overtime win against the United States in the gold-medal game. It was her second gold medal, having helped Canada win at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

She will be the first woman to play in the SPHL.

"I am very excited to get a world-class athlete that has competed and has faced high-pressured situations," Columbus coach Jerome Bechard said. "Shannon has won at every level she has played, in women's hockey or men's hockey."


MacKinnon breaks Gretzky's point-streak record

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 11:46 PM / News


Colorado Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon erased one of Wayne Gretzky's records Thursday night by earning a point in his 13th consecutive game, the longest streak ever by an 18-year-old.

MacKinnon set up Andre Benoit for the winning goal 4:28 into overtime, giving the Avalanche a 3-2 victory against the Detroit Red Wings. His passout from behind the net found Benoit in the lower left circle for a wrister than beat goaltender Jimmy Howard.

"Nobody really took me, and Benoit took the back door. [The record's] pretty cool. I want to be as consistent as possible," MacKinnon said. "[Gretzky] probably doubled my point total in those games."

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.

— Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi on maintaining their success from last season
