EPIX crew begins filming with Capitals

Adam Vingan - Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- A usual scene unfolded prior to the Washington Capitals practice Monday morning when goaltending coach Mitch Korn huddled together Braden Holtby and Justin Peters, preparing them for a 30-minute workout.

As defensemen Jack Hillen and Nate Schmidt made D-to-D passes while the goaltenders cradled medicine balls and cut side-to-side, a cameraman kneeled behind at each point, filming the entire drill and turning an ordinary occurrence into a potential television segment.

That is the Capitals lives for the next several weeks as a 15-person crew from EPIX has arrived to chronicle their preparation for the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic against the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan. 1.

"They're doing a pretty good job of being sneaky," forward Eric Fehr said. "They've caught us a few times where we don't even know they're there and they've got you mic'd."

NEW YORKDetroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk, Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and Florida Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Dec. 7.


Datsyuk shared the League lead with seven points (3-4-7) in four games, including three multi-point performances, to help the Red Wings (17-6-5, 39 points) pick up a trio of victories and tie the Lightning (18-7-3, 39 points) for the most points in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference.

Datsyuk then recorded his second consecutive 1-1—2 performance, including his 47th career game-winning goal, in a 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars Dec. 4. After being held off the scoresheet in a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers Dec. 6, Datsyuk (1-2-3) factored on all three Red Wings goals, his second three-point game of the season, in a 3-1 triumph over the Carolina Hurricanes Dec. 7. The 36-year-old Sverdlovsk, Russia, native has recorded five multi-point performances in his last seven outings, totaling 7-4-11 in that stretch. Despite missing 11 games this season, Datsyuk is tied for first on the Red Wings with 12 goals and ranks second on the club with 22 points in 17 contests.


Fantasy All-Access: Wingels, Ramo deserve an add

Matt Sitkoff - Contributor

Every Monday, contributor Matt Sitkoff identifies waiver wire pickups, roster trends, schedule notes and a prospect to watch in fantasy hockey.

The Edmonton Oilers won a game Sunday for the first time since they beat the New York Rangers on Nov. 9. Their record since that day is 1-7-4, but that does not mean there aren't players with fantasy value in Edmonton. Taylor Hall has continued to produce with seven points in the 10 games he played during the winless streak. Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have seven points in the past 12 games, while David Perron has three goals and four assists. Their fantasy owners could be clouded by the Oilers' slump and ready to deal these talented players, making them perfect buy-low candidates.


Governors convene for annual December meeting

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 11:26 AM / News

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Representatives from the NHL's 30 teams will meet here for the next two days to discuss the state of the League in the December meeting of the Board of Governors.

The meeting serves as an opportunity to update the teams on several issues which impact them, including the first projections for the salary cap for the 2015-16 season. Owners are eager to hear the initial projection, which is by no means binding, to help them forecast payroll issues for the upcoming season.

It is expected there will be an update on expansion made by the League. Commissioner Gary Bettman said last month there is nothing imminent in this area, but the League continues to hear from interested parties.

"All I'll do is continue to report on the levels of interest that are being expressed," Bettman said during an appearance in Toronto last month. "There's no effort crying out for immediate expansion. But we are getting expressions of interest."

Canadiens community honors 'The Great Jean'

Sunday, 12.07.2014 / 4:59 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

MONTREAL -- To get an idea of just how much the late Jean Beliveau meant to the Montreal Canadiens, you just have to listen to Rejean Houle talk about him for a few minutes.

His voice quivering with emotion, Houle spoke to reporters during the public viewing of Beliveau's body at Bell Centre on Sunday. Every time Houle made reference to Beliveau, he called him "the great Jean."

It was as if Houle, the president of the Canadiens alumni association, did not know Beliveau under any other name.

"Over the course of Canadiens history, the presence of the great Jean is so important, we want our children and grandchildren to follow the example of the great Mr. Beliveau," Houle said. "The great Jean did so much for the community, he was so present. Whenever anyone needed the great Jean, the great Jean was there. I hope it also provides an example to our current players that you have to think of the fans and think of the people who don't have the advantages we have, and to help them. The great Jean was the great hope, the exceptional person who did that. I would even say that the great Jean burned himself out traveling to banquets, to social events everywhere to raise money to help people.

"Bravo to our Jean, our great Jean we love so much."

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
