Canucks' Kesler, Sedin practice; Burrows now ailing

Friday, 03.21.2014 / 4:57 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks got two important players back from injury for practice Friday but lost another.

Top-six forwards Ryan Kesler and Daniel Sedin were on the ice with teammates for the first time since missing time with leg injuries, but top-line left wing Alexandre Burrows was missing after being slashed on his left hand late in a game Wednesday against the Nashville Predators.

Kesler, who has missed four games with a knee sprain, and Sedin, out for nine with a hamstring injury, took part in the full practice and said returning against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday would depend on how they felt after practicing again Saturday.

Maple Leafs eye run with Bolland, Bernier close

Friday, 03.21.2014 / 4:45 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

With 10 points in 12 games, and the Toronto Maple Leafs starting the season 10-4-0, forward Dave Bolland was enjoying a memorable first month with his hometown team after winning the Stanley Cup twice with the Chicago Blackhawks. Then came Nov. 2, when Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian accidentally stepped on Bolland's left leg, leaving Bolland with a lacerated tendon in his ankle.

Bolland hasn't played since, but that could be about to change.

After missing 56 games, Bolland could return Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, CBC). With goaltender Jonathan Bernier also possible to return after missing three games with a groin injury, Toronto could be getting healthy at the right time. Having lost three straight, they certainly can use both players.

Friday, 03.21.2014 / 4:33 PM / Drive to the Playoffs

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Boston Bruins are surging toward the top of the NHL standings, and look like a top title contender as the Stanley Cup Playoffs beckon.

The Eastern Conference-leading Bruins will look for their 11th straight victory when they visit the Colorado Avalanche on Friday. It would mark the longest win streak in coach Claude Julien's seven seasons.

"Our whole team is feeling good about their game and when you feel good about your game, you seem to have that energy and right now our whole team has a lot of energy," Julien said after the Bruins beat the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Tuesday.

Blackhawks give Teravainen a look as Kane rests

Friday, 03.21.2014 / 4:31 PM / Features

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The much-anticipated arrival of Teuvo Teravainen dominated a busy morning skate for the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday at United Center.

The 19-year old Finnish forward, Chicago's top prospect, officially joined his new team on the ice for drills but won't play Friday night against the Carolina Hurricanes. Instead, the Blackhawks want to give Teravainen some time to get acclimated to his surroundings.

They also want to take as much pressure off his shoulders as possible, even as fans look to him to ease the sting of losing right wing Patrick Kane to a lower-body injury for the rest of the regular season.

"The thing we just want to be cautious about is he's a 19-year-old kid," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said. "He's not coming in here to carry the team. We certainly have high hopes for him in the future, but this is more just an experience for Teuvo to come in and see what the NHL is all about."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
