Super 16: Flames, Sabres work from similar positions

Friday, 12.20.2013 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

When Jay Feaster was removed from the position of general manager of the Calgary Flames, it meant there were now two such openings in the NHL because the Buffalo Sabres have yet to replace the departed Darcy Regier.

Though it is the same position and the two franchises are relatively close to each other in the League standings, there are a lot of differences about the two jobs and the situations make for an interesting contrast.

Neither franchise has been very successful of late, though the Flames reached the Stanley Cup Final a decade ago and the Sabres soon followed with back-to-back Eastern Conference Final appearances. Each made significant trades last season to signal a full-scale rebuild, trading their captain and other key players for prospects and draft picks.

LOS ANGELES -- San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl left the game Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings with an apparent lower-body injury. He did not return to the game, which the Kings won 4-1.

Hertl took a knee-on-knee hit from Dustin Brown with 61 seconds left in the first period and immediately went to the dressing room. Brown was given a five-minute kneeing penalty and a game misconduct.

"Nothing," coach Todd McLellan said when asked if he had any update on Hertl. "I haven’t gone in there to see the trainers yet or talk to the doctors yet. Obviously he didn’t return, so it’s not a good thing."

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
