All-Star captains eager to get down to business

Wednesday, 01.14.2015 / 6:29 PM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

NHL.com

When Patrick Kane joined Jonathan Toews in coach Joel Quenneville's office before practice Wednesday, he was worried something had gone awry during the Chicago Blackhawks' brief break since last playing Sunday against the Minnesota Wild.

"I thought we were in trouble," Kane said.

Quite the opposite, actually. Quenneville called the meeting to tell Toews he would be named a captain for the 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend and Kane that he would be named an assistant to captain Nick Foligno of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Toews will be joined by Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks and Rick Nash of the New York Rangers. Foligno and Kane will be joined by Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings.

Penguins find new spot for Rust's clothes

Wednesday, 01.14.2015 / 2:22 PM / News

Before Sidney Crosby stepped onto the ice for Wednesday’s practice, he looked up – and immediately began shaking his head and laughing.

Many of his teammates had the same reaction as they noticed what was dangling from the rafters of CONSOL Energy Center: rookie Bryan Rust’s street clothes. The 22-year-old forward’s coat, shirt, jeans and shoes were all hanging from a hook that had been lowered from the ceiling, with his nickname taped across the back of his jacket.

Unlike his teammates, Rust didn’t notice right away. After he got on the ice, Rust be-bopped around for a few minutes, just skating in circles without a care in the world before he finally realized he had been the victim of a prank.

“I looked up and knew it was mine because I’m pretty sure I’m the only one with those shoes on the team,” laughed Rust, in his first professional season after four years at Notre Dame. “I was kind of just skating around laughing. It’s just one of those things where you’re a rookie, so things are going to happen. It’s all in good fun.”

Fantasy top 60 'D': Flyers' Streit thrives on power play

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey correspondent Brian Metzer will provide you with in-depth defensemen analysis. From updated weekly top 60 rankings to trending players and more, Metzer will be your go-to guy for fantasy blue line advice all season long.

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Mark Streit had a career-high 62 points during the 2007-08 season with the Montreal Canadiens. He had 54.8 percent of those points while his team was on the power play. That production was good enough to place him third among all defensemen in scoring and earned him a five-year, $20.5 million contract with the New York Islanders after that season.

He had 179 points in 286 games with the Islanders, with 85 of them coming on the power play.

Streit's history prior to joining the Flyers last season is important because it shows just how effective he has been on the power play. He has scored 47.4 percent of his career points while his teams have been on the man-advantage, and that production is making Streit a standout performer for the Flyers this season.

Canadiens use time off to change power play

Wednesday, 01.14.2015 / 10:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Being a hockey coach here is not always easy. In fact, it rarely is.

The Montreal Canadiens enter their game at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday with a 26-12-3 record and have been at or near the top of the Eastern Conference standings for most of the season. Yet the Canadiens have been consistently poor on the power play, and in Montreal, that one glaring weakness tends to grab a lot of attention.

Coach Michel Therrien made some changes to the power play Monday and Tuesday at practice, in personnel and system. Considering the power play has been consistently unproductive for more than a calendar year without any significant adjustments, it was not surprising this became big news, even without an explanation from Therrien.

"I'm not going to start analyzing the changes," Therrien said. "First of all, as a coach, you want to keep those things private. We're in Montreal, we're a big market. Practices are getting analyzed on TV, and it's not fun for a coach. You want to make adjustments, and you're watching the news and people are trying to analyze the new strategy that you want to have. It can be tough at times. So I'm not going to start to elaborate on the changes."
