Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 1:26 PM / News


Philadelphia Flyers forward Vincent Lecavalier will make his season debut Thursday against the New Jersey Devils, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said Wednesday.

The Flyers are missing centers Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Sean Couturier. Bellemare will be out at least two weeks because of a lower-body injury sustained in their 4-3 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Couturier is day-to-day with an upper-body injury he called a concussion sustained Oct. 21 against the Boston Bruins.

Fantasy top 60 defensemen: Markov's flashback year

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey contributor Brian Metzer provides in-depth defenseman analysis. From updated weekly top 60 rankings to trending players and more, Metzer is your go-to guy for fantasy D-men advice all season long.

Oct. 21 was recognized as "Back to the Future Day," a celebration of the day in the film "Back to the Future Part II" in which Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, travels from 1985 to Oct. 21, 2015 to save his future children.

That doesn't have a ton to do with fantasy hockey, but the time-travel aspect of those films was the first thing that came to mind while watching Andrei Markov have a five-point game Oct. 23 in a victory against the Buffalo Sabres.

That's the kind of performance we expect from Markov's teammate P.K. Subban, who just took over the top spot in our rankings, but it was the 36-year-old Markov with a game reminiscent of 2008.

Penguins visit Capitals on Wednesday Night Rivalry

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 3:00 AM / Tale of the Tape


Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin begin the second decade of their rivalry when the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Washington Capitals in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

Crosby and Ovechkin entered the NHL on the same night, Oct. 5, 2005, and each has enjoyed success against the other's team. Crosby has 18 goals and 51 points in 33 regular-season games against the Capitals; Ovechkin has 27 goals and 46 points in 39 games against the Penguins.

Pittsburgh has had the better of the play against Washington during the Crosby-Ovechkin era, winning 22 of 39 regular-season games as well as their lone Stanley Cup Playoff series, a seven-game victory in the 2009 Eastern Conference Semifinals. But the Penguins are looking up at the Capitals in the Metropolitan Division standings early this season, and Crosby has been limited to one goal and three points in eight games. Ovechkin has five goals and nine points in six.

Ovechkin set to pass Fedorov as top Russian in goals

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Alex Ovechkin has broken more than a few records during his NHL career, but the next one he reaches will have some added meaning.

The Washington Capitals captain is on the verge of becoming the highest goal scorer among Russian-born players, closing in on former NHL player Sergei Fedorov's record of 483 goals.

Ovechkin has 480 goals in 766 NHL games, the most of any player since he entered the League in 2005.

"I'm very excited," Ovechkin said. "It's going to be a huge honor for me to beat his record, especially [since] I know him and he was a top player I played with. It'll be something."

Ovechkin could tie or surpass Fedorov's mark by the end of the week. The Capitals play the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN); the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday and visit the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Senators GM Murray battling cancer through work

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 3:00 AM / Hockey Fights Cancer

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators general manager and president of hockey operations Bryan Murray can be seen on an almost daily basis working the hallways, offices and stands at the Canadian Tire Centre, consulting with his staff, talking to his players and dealing with the media.

Sixteen months after the 72-year-old was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer which had spread to his liver and lungs, Murray is holding his own in his battle and he said showing up for work has been a big weapon for him.

"I've just had scans and I've been told everything is fairly stable," Murray said. "It's not growing, it's not shrinking, it's pretty much where it was. The chemo plus the other stuff I'm doing seems to have, at least for now, some control over the growth."

The Senators host the Calgary Flames on Wednesday in their Hockey Fights Cancer Night game (7:30 p.m., ET; TVA Sports, SN1).

Analytics weigh in on Ovechkin-Fedorov debate

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 3:00 AM / Behind the Numbers

Rob Vollman - NHL.com Correspondent

Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin is closing in fast on Sergei Fedorov for the most goals scored by a Russian-born player in the NHL.

Ovechkin, who has scored in five of his six games this season, needs three goals to tie Fedorov's total of 483, which he scored during an 18-year career spent mostly with the Detroit Red Wings but also featured stops with the Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets and the Capitals. Fedorov, who left the NHL at 39, played 1,248 NHL games.

But how do these two legendary Russians compare when measured head-to-head with the various tools available through the use of analytics?

Around the League notebook: Tuesday, Oct. 27

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 1:48 AM / News

The Vancouver Canucks jumped to an early 3-0 lead, powered by two goals from rookie Jared McCann, to halt a four-game slide (0-2-2) and hand the Montreal Canadiens their first loss of the season, ending Montreal's record-setting season-opening winning streak at nine games.

* The Canadiens, who set the NHL record for consecutive regulation wins to begin a season, fell one victory shy of equaling the League record for wins (in any fashion) to start a campaign. The 1993-94 Toronto Maple Leafs and 2006-07 Buffalo Sabres opened their seasons with 10 straight victories.

* The Canucks improved to 12-4-0 in their last 16 games against the Canadiens at Rogers Arena dating to March 27, 1999 (MTL: 4-10-2).

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf out with appendicitis

Wednesday, 10.28.2015 / 1:31 AM / News


Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf was not in the lineup against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday after flying back to California to have a non-emergency appendectomy.

The Ducks said the surgery will take place Wednesday. Getzlaf has had discomfort intermittently over the past six weeks and is expected to be sidelined 4-12 days.

"Well, he's had it for a while," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "At one point, they (club officials) decided, 'look, we've just got to get it done,' and they decided this was the time to get it done."

Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr leaves game with injury

Tuesday, 10.27.2015 / 11:46 PM / News


Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr left the game against the Colorado Avalanche in the first period Tuesday with a lower-body injury.

Jagr played 2:24 on his first three shifts in the first period, then didn't step on the ice again for more than nine minutes. He came back at 17:38 but played six seconds before leaving.

"I think it's a groin or hip, something minor," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. "Hopefully tomorrow he's fine."
