Islanders early success to be tested by road stretch

Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / 9:34 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- At 6-3-0, the New York Islanders are off to their best start in 13 years. Their challenge during the next few weeks is to show this fast start is not a mirage.

The arrival of November, a month that usually includes at least one tough stretch of road games, has been a harbinger of bad things to come for the Islanders in recent years. All too often, any optimism generated in October has blown away like autumn leaves, sending the Islanders on their way to another early summer vacation. For example, a 6-5-3 start through Nov. 2 of last season collapsed under the weight of a 2-11-0 showing through the rest of the month, part of a 3-18-0 stretch that all but ended their playoff hopes.

But 2014-15 is a new season, and the Islanders are confident that this time, it's going to be different.

Capitals' Backstrom quietly puts up big-time numbers

Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Midway through a first-period power play against the Edmonton Oilers last Wednesday, Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom contemplated his options.

Near the right half-wall where he orchestrates the Capitals power play, Backstrom's stick blade danced around the puck before he settled on defenseman John Carlson, who was lurking in the high slot with his stick cocked.

Backstrom slid an effortless pass in Carlson's direction, and the defenseman fired the puck past Edmonton goaltender Ben Scrivens to tie the game 1-1.

The assist, his 500th NHL point, was quintessential Backstrom: understated but effective. The 26-year-old's career has been characterized by such subtlety, an extension of his reserved personality.

"He is sneaky good. I knew he was, but you appreciate it more when you see it every day," said defenseman Matt Niskanen, who signed with Washington on July 1.

Five things to watch as Capitals host Red Wings

Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Odds are there won't be any surprises Wednesday at Verizon Center, where Barry Trotz and Mike Babcock square off against one another in their latest battle of coaching wits as the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings play in the NBCSN Wednesday Night Rivalry game (7:30 p.m. ET).

Trotz, in his first season coaching the Capitals, and Babcock, in his 10th season in Detroit, are so familiar with each other they could probably switch sides and nothing would change.

Trotz's and Babcock's teams have played against each other 62 times in the past 11 regular seasons, including 60 times in the same conference and 52 times in the same division, all with Trotz as the coach of the Nashville Predators.

Backes left the game with the score tied 1-1 after he hit his head on the ice following a hit away from the puck by Stars defenseman Trevor Daley.

"He's going to be re-evaluated tomorrow," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "It was precautionary. We're just going to have to see what the doctors say tomorrow."

Tuesday, 10.28.2014 / 8:24 PM / Hockey Fights Cancer

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- If you ask New York Rangers center Dominic Moore, nobody perseveres alone, not in the fight against cancer and its devastating consequences.

Take the story of 10-year-old twin brothers Elijah and Nathaniel Blades of Freeport, N.Y. Elijah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia two days before his fifth birthday. Once hospitalized, Elijah was separated from his brother for the first time. Although Elijah had to endure chemotherapy and its side effects, Nathaniel also fell sick because of the anxiety and the stress of seeing what his brother had to go through.

Clock ticks for junior-aged prospects on NHL rosters

Tuesday, 10.28.2014 / 5:05 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The clock could strike midnight for several top junior-aged prospects this week when general managers around the NHL are forced to make franchise-defining decisions on the immediate future of those young stars.

Will Florida Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad, chosen No. 1 in the 2014 NHL Draft, take the next step in his career? Can Jonathan Drouin, selected No. 3 by the Tampa Bay Lightning at the 2013 NHL Draft, stick with the team that returned him to the Halifax Mooseheads in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League at the end of training camp in the 2013-14 preseason?

Those questions will be answered as early as Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
