NHL.com

Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky practiced Thursday for the first time since breaking a finger Oct. 27, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

Coach Todd Richards would not rule out Bobrovsky and center Artem Anismiov (concussion), who practiced for the second straight day, playing Friday against the Philadelphia Flyers, though it seems unlikely.

Bobrovsky has missed seven games, all losses, with the injury. Anisimov has been out for six games after being injured Oct. 28.

Fantasy top 30 goalies: Hurricanes' Ward has awoken

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 12:20 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Justin Goldman - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Thursday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey correspondent Justin Goldman, a regional goalie scout for USA Hockey and founder of The Goalie Guild, will provide you with in-depth goalie analysis. From updated weekly top 30 rankings to trending players and more, Goldman will be your go-to guy for fantasy goalie advice all season long.

Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Cam Ward is kind of like the Rip Van Winkle of fantasy hockey.

For the first time in more than five seasons Ward has won five games in a row. It’s the first time he has accomplished this feat since stringing together nine straight wins from March 18 to April 9, 2009.

Considering he was 0-3-1 with a .840 save percentage (84 saves on 100 shots) in October, Ward is starting to prove to even his harshest critics that he's waking up from a very lengthy slumber.

Unmasked: More than luck in Hasek's barrel roll

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / Unmasked

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

Of all the incredible saves Dominik Hasek made during a two-decade career that earned induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame, perhaps none was more famous than the barrel roll.

Also known as the drop and roll or the Hasek Roll, it was a signature move for a goaltender known as "The Dominator."

It also was widely misunderstood and improperly characterized as an act of desperate athleticism, or worse, a lucky save. It was anything but.

Many of Hasek's saves were easily dismissed as unorthodox flopping, but there was a method to the madness. Much of it was based on the same principles of taking away time and filling space that make up modern goaltending instruction but were emerging themes in the early-1990s when Hasek debuted in the League.

Blues' 'STL Line' emerging as one of NHL's best

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- When the St. Louis Blues made it known in July that they signed center Jori Lehtera and persuaded the Finland native to leave the Kontinental Hockey League for the NHL, nobody was happier than Vladimir Tarasenko.

Lehtera and Tarasenko played together for Sibir Novosibirsk of the KHL for two seasons, and the chemistry was impeccable.

The Blues knew they had two-thirds of a line, and it was no secret that Russian native Tarasenko and Lehtera would join forces once again in St. Louis once the signing was announced.

Erie's Dylan Strome ready to follow brother's path

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Erie Otters forward Dylan Strome can recall the excitement watching his older brother head to the podium after the New York Islanders had just selected him with the fifth pick in the 2011 NHL Draft at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota.

"We were kind of in shock," he said. "My brother just went fifth overall in the NHL draft and I'm like, 'Wow.' It's something that happens just once in your lifetime and it was pretty cool to be a part of it from right there in the fifth row.

"Hopefully, I can live that day again."

There's no reason to think Strome won't get a little déjà vu on June 26 when the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft is held at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla. The 6-foot-3, 187-pound left-handed shot has been everything advertised after the Otters selected him No. 2 in the 2013 Ontario Hockey League draft.

Griffith's extra effort, skill sparked Bruins to victory

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / Defenders of the Ice

NHL.com

Not only did Seth Griffith's goal dominate the highlight reel Monday, his extra effort that led to the goal sparked the Boston Bruins to a win against the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden.

The play started late in the second period of a 2-2 game when Griffith took a knee to block a shot from Devils defenseman Bryce Salvador, got up immediately and powered through Salvador and Marek Zidlicky on an end-to-end rush. Defended by Zidlicky in front of the Devils net, Griffith spun, turned his back to the goal and slapped a backhander between his legs and the pads of goalie Cory Schneider at 18:01.

The Bruins added an insurance goal 1:20 later en route to their fifth straight win that boosted their record to 10-6-0, and Griffith's grit on defense and flair for offense was the talk of the locker room. What impressed coach Claude Julien was Griffith's desire that put the game's turning point in motion.

"I think that that whole effort, from the time he blocked it, to picking up some speed and really battling hard between the two Ds, and then staying on it -- that last effort there, of using his stick between his legs there to bank that puck in, it was a great effort," Julien told the Bruins website.

Unorthodox Hasek dominated on way to Hall of Fame

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / Hall of Fame

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

If the awards and records don't say it, the nickname certainly does.

Dominik Hasek was known as The Dominator for good reason.

At the peak of a career that will see the 49-year-old inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, Nov. 17, Hasek won six Vezina and two Hart trophies with the Buffalo Sabres and a gold medal with the Czech Republic at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, the first with NHL participation. He added two Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings before retiring with the highest NHL career save percentage at .922.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
