Senators hold meeting after loss to Devils

NEWARK, N.J. -- The Ottawa Senators held a closed-door meeting Wednesday night to try to figure out how to get their season turned around.

The Senators shut the dressing room doors for nearly 10 minutes following a 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center for a gathering that included general manager Bryan Murray, coach Paul MacLean, his staff and the players.

"It was for the most part a message from the top of expectations from them and what we should be expecting of each other," Senators alternate captain Chris Phillips said. "It was a good message."

The Senators entered the season with high expectations after making the Stanley Cup Playoffs despite injuries to stars such as defenseman Erik Karlsson, center Jason Spezza and goalie Craig Anderson. However, they are sixth in the Atlantic Division with 34 points and have not been able to string together back-to-back wins since they won three in a row from Nov. 5-9.


Devils' Jagr eighth on goals list, record game-winner

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr moved up on two of the NHL's all-time lists for goals with one shot Wednesday.

Jagr's power-play goal early in the second period at Prudential Center put him in sole possession of eighth place on the NHL's all-time goals list with 693 and eventually moved him into first place on the League's all-time list for game-winning goals with 122.

Jagr's next goal will tie him with Mark Messier for seventh place on the goals list. Jagr was tied with Gordie Howe on the game-winning list, but Jagr now has first place to himself because his goal was New Jersey's third in a 5-2 win against the Ottawa Senators.

In typical Jagr fashion, he cracked a joke when asked about his achievements.

"It's a long streak for me without a goal," said Jagr, who snapped an eight-game drought. "[Dainius Zubrus] did a great job to shut me down for eight games."

The Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday signed defenseman Jean-Philippe Cote to a two-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Hurricanes forward Lindholm to play in WJC

Wednesday, 12.18.2013 / 4:23 PM / News


The Carolina Hurricanes will allow forward Elias Lindholm to play for Sweden at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, general manager Jim Rutherford announced Wednesday.

With this year's WJC in Malmo, Sweden, the national junior team certainly is happy to have Lindholm, who was not available for the summer evaluation camp in Lake Placid, N.Y., in August so he could prepare for the start of the NHL season.

Lindholm, 19, has split the season between the Hurricanes and the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. In 21 NHL games Lindholm has three goals and four assists. He was the fifth pick of the 2013 NHL Draft.


Red Wings use outdoor practice to lift spirits

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The puck magician exited the rink inside Comerica Park on Wednesday afternoon and summed up the Detroit Red Wings' current situation as only he could.

"No black," said Pavel Datsyuk, when asked why he didn't wear eye black during an outdoor practice that was open to the public. "[Don't] need it. In Detroit, no sunny days. We start winning, it might be sunny."

His answer drew a round of laughs but was apt for the injury-plagued Red Wings, who were blown out 5-2 by the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena and haven't won in six games.

Like the famous song lyric, ain't no sunshine for the Red Wings when the wins are gone. And wins are harder to get with almost half the usual roster sidelined by various injuries.

Detroit is missing six of its top-nine forwards, including captain Henrik Zetterberg, along with goalieJimmy Howard and top-four rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser. The Red Wings also have a 5-9-6 record on home ice and a vexing five-game losing streak at Joe Louis Arena they'd like to snap Thursday night against the Calgary Flames.

There's also some concern about Daniel Alfredsson's status after he didn't participate in the outdoor practice.

All things considered, taking it outside might've been perfect timing. The Red Wings got to breathe in some cold air and take their mind off their woes. Datsyuk put it this way: "It's fresh air, what we needed … a little bit of breathe."

NEW YORK -- As Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Philip Samuelsson participated in practice prior to his second NHL game Wednesday against the New York Rangers, there was a familiar face watching from up in the stands at Madison Square Garden.

It was Samuelsson's father, Ulf, who as New York's assistant coach was scouting the competition but also enjoying the sight of his son practicing with an NHL team.

So which role was the longtime player and current coach spending more time serving: proud papa or NHL coach?

"You tell me," Ulf Samuelsson told NHL.com. "[It will be the] same thing tonight. I've got to work and be a fan at the same time."
