OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators goaltender Robin Lehner and forward Clarke MacArthur continued to be evaluated Tuesday after they were injured Monday in the second period of a 6-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes and did not return for the third period.

Lehner and MacArthur most likely won't be available when the Senators host the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, the Senators said via Twitter. Ottawa recalled goalie Chris Driedger from the Evansville IceMen of the ECHL on an emergency basis.

MacArthur collided with Lehner when he skated back to try to break up a 3-on-1 which resulted in a goal by the Hurricanes with 52 seconds left in the period.

MacArthur’s head hit Lehner in the chest. Each player was motionless on the ice for several minutes before getting up and leaving the ice.


Red Wings recall Pulkkinen, reassign Mrazek to AHL

Tuesday, 02.17.2015 / 12:10 PM / News

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled right wing Teemu Pulkkinen from the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins and assigned goaltender Petr Mrazek to the Griffins.

Pulkkinen, 23, has racked up 57 points (30-27-57) in 44 games with the Griffins this season, including 18 points (10-8-18) in 11 games with the team since being assigned by Detroit on Jan. 20. He scored his AHL-leading 30th goal of the season on Sunday at Chicago – seven more goals than the next-highest in the league – becoming the first Griffin to score 30 goals in back-to-back seasons. He also leads the league in points and is second in game-winning goals (6), power-play goals (10) and shots on goal (178). The Vantaa, Finland, native has also skated in six games with the Red Wings this season, notching his first NHL goal on Jan. 20 versus Minnesota. Originally drafted by Detroit in the fourth round (111th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Pulkkinen also appeared in 185 professional games with Jokerit of Finland's SM-Liiga from 2009-13 prior to coming to North America, totaling 128 points (49-79-128).


Fantasy top 100 forwards: Don't sleep on Panthers

Tuesday, 02.17.2015 / 12:03 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen will provide you with in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top 100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen will be your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.

You can't always judge a book by its cover in fantasy hockey.

No one is mistaking the 2014-15 Florida Panthers for an offensive juggernaut. Their 2.36 goals-per-game average ranks 25th out of 30 teams and they haven't had much of a presence in these top 100 fantasy forward rankings.

But that's not to say their forward group won't be fantasy relevant down the stretch. The Panthers happen to have two under-the-radar forwards who can aid your fantasy squad in the goal-scoring department.

NHL Public Relations


The New York Rangers scored three unanswered goals, capped by Kevin Klein's game-winner with 4:32 remaining in regulation, to earn a 6-5 win against the New York Islanders, their fourth consecutive victory, snapping a three-game skid in the Battle of New York.

* At 34-16-5 (73 points), the Rangers climbed within two points of the Islanders (37-19-1, 75 points) for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers hold two games in hand and own the ROW tiebreaker (NYR: 32, NYI: 30). The teams will next face off on March 10 at Nassau Coliseum in their final game of the season (NYR: 1-3-0; NYI: 3-1-0).

* The Rangers improved to 15-4-1 against Metropolitan Division rivals, including wins in 12 of their past 14 intradivision games.

* Klein (1-1—2) scored his first goal since Jan. 8 at LAK, ending a 16-game drought. He has 1-6—7 in his past five games and paces all Rangers defensemen with 9-16—25. He has four game-winning goals this season, tied for second among defensemen, after scoring two in his first 433 games.


Five Questions: McLellan on Stadium Series hype

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

Todd McLellan was hoping the schedule would be kinder to the San Jose Sharks, that it would allow them to be home this week to enjoy the buildup and be a part of the hype leading into their 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game against the Los Angeles Kings at Levi's Field on Saturday (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA2).

McLellan didn't get what he wanted. He's on the road with his team for a game against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday and the Dallas Stars on Thursday.

By the time the Sharks return home, the rink at Levi's Field will be finished and ready for them to skate on Friday. The media will already be in town. The hype machine will already be blasting, even without the home team in the same time zone.

So instead of having the benefit of being at home to promote arguably the biggest hockey event to ever come to Northern California, McLellan is finding the positives in being on the road this week.

"I think it would be to our benefit to be at home as far as promoting it and getting our players out and taking in the whole week of excitement, but we don't have that luxury so maybe we have to look at it from another perspective," McLellan told "That's being on the road, you won't have the distraction. You're just on the road playing hockey. That can be the positive."

The question for McLellan now is, in what shape will the Sharks return for the big game?

The Sharks are coming off a 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday when they were plagued by many of the same warts and inconsistencies that have been plaguing them all season. They flew to Nashville on Monday in second place in the Pacific Division; they woke up Tuesday in fourth place.

"We're all over the map too much," McLellan said.

McLellan spoke to about how the Sharks are preparing for the Stadium Series game and what some of his concerns are in the following Q&A.


Devils' Jagr remains valuable commodity at age 43

Tuesday, 02.17.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr continues to be defiant against Father Time, so it shouldn't be a surprise that the now 43-year-old could be one of the most influential players to change teams prior to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline on March 2 at 3 p.m. ET.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello hasn't said he is going to trade Jagr, nor has Jagr made public any request to be traded, but New Jersey's position in the standings (seventh in the Metropolitan Division) and Jagr's position as a player on a one-year contract who can still score makes him a valuable commodity as the deadline nears.

"He's got it, he's still got it," Devils forward Dainius Zubrus said. "He's still doing it."

Senators could stand pat after Methot extension

Monday, 02.16.2015 / 4:21 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Chris Stevenson - Correspondent

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators didn't look like they would be in a position to be active when it came to the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2.

A long shot to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Senators could have been a seller at the deadline, but now another of their few potential chips has been taken off the table.

The Senators signed defenseman Marc Methot to a four-year contract extension Monday which will pay the 29-year-old $4.9 million a season.

Senators general manager Bryan Murray had said if Methot, potentially an unrestricted free July 1, had not been signed by March 2 he would be traded.

Murray didn't want to run the risk of losing him for nothing.


Trade signals Stanley Cup intentions for Predators

Monday, 02.16.2015 / 3:08 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Robby Stanley - Correspondent

NASHVILLE – The Nashville Predators sent a message Sunday to the rest of the NHL when they acquired defenseman Cody Franson and forward Mike Santorelli from the Toronto Maples Leafs. They are all-in to make a push for the Stanley Cup this season.

Nashville general manager David Poile said if things go according to plan, he doesn’t anticipate making any more moves before the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2 at 3 p.m. ET. He seems confident that Nashville’s roster has enough to do some damage in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"That seems to be the trend around the League with teams that feel that they are going for it, which we certainly feel like we have a good chance to try to bolster our lineup and add depth," Predators forward Eric Nystrom said. "I definitely think we did that with this trade, so that was good. We’re a confident team regardless but any time you can improve your team, that’s the idea."

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
