Flyers mean business heading into new season

Wednesday, 09.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Craig Berube took over as coach of the Philadelphia Flyers three games into last season, giving him ample time to get his team playing the way he believes they need to play to be successful.

However, there's nothing like having a full training camp.

"It's really important," Berube said. "That's where the consistency really is going to come in, through camp and us instilling what we want to do. It started in the summertime. There was a real focus on the off-ice conditioning and what kind of shape you have to be in to be a Flyer and what we're looking for. That's a high standard. We really held it high this year. I think it's really important that they're coming into camp in great shape. And we're really working and competing and getting our guys to where they need to get to at the start of the season. That's very important.


Blue Jackets' Bobrovsky: Team success comes first

Wednesday, 09.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky certainly has a special place for the Vezina Trophy he won in 2013. However, it's helping the Blue Jackets reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season for the second time in franchise history that resonates with him.

"Most important is team success," Bobrovsky said. "Of course it's really good to win the Vezina, to have the honor of being the best goalie in the NHL. It's a great feeling. But what makes you feel really good is team success. And that is an all-around feeling; everyone feels good, feels proud about the team success."

Bobrovsky was a big reason for the Blue Jackets' success last season. In 58 games he went 32-20-5 with a 2.38 goals-against average, a save percentage of .923 and five shutouts. The Blue Jackets finished as the first wild-card team in the Eastern Conference and drew the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round.


Flyers relying on better start, defense stepping up

Wednesday, 09.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Craig Berube spent 17 seasons in the NHL as a player and seven seasons as an assistant coach. But when he got a promotion to coach of the Philadelphia Flyers three games into the 2013-14 season, he saw things in an entirely new way.

"It wasn't like I got surprised by anything, but from game in and game out it's the competitiveness of the League and how tight the League really is," Berube said. "There's just no room for error. You're playing all these teams on different nights here and there, how good these teams are and how well you have to play and how consistent you have to be to be a really good team."


Giroux growing into captain's role with Flyers

Wednesday, 09.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Claude Giroux's play was a microcosm of the Philadelphia Flyers' 2013-14 season.

After 15 games, Giroux had no goals, seven assists and a minus-11 rating; the team was 4-10-1, last in the Metropolitan Division and 15th in the Eastern Conference.

From that point on, however, Giroux had 28 goals and 79 points in 67 games and was a Hart Trophy nominee, while the Flyers went 38-20-9 to finish third in the division.


Blue Jackets' identity leads to off-ice success

The Columbus Blue Jackets didn't just qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs and win their first two postseason games in franchise history against the favored Pittsburgh Penguins last season. They won over the city of Columbus by cultivating a blue-collar identity.

With the 2015 NHL All-Star Game coming to Columbus on Jan. 25, and the Blue Jackets looking to make the postseason in consecutive seasons for the first time, the team has been embraced by the community in a way not seen since the inaugural season of 2000-01.

"They're a hard team to play against. They beat us more than we beat them last year," forward Scott Hartnell said of the Blue Jackets after being traded to Columbus by the Philadelphia Flyers on June 23. "It was always a tough game. You were always getting checked, you were always getting hit."

Sharks' Couture leaves game, says he's 'OK'

Wednesday, 09.24.2014 / 12:12 AM / News

San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture left late in the second period of a 4-2 loss against the Vancouver Canucks in a preseason game Tuesday.

Couture was hit on the shoulder with four minutes left in the second period and did not return for the third. Couture said he was "OK" as he left Rogers Arena after the game, and Sharks coach Todd McLellan didn't seem too concerned.

"He got banged up a little bit and this time of the year we are not going to fool around with anything like that so we kept him out and we'll see how it is in the morning, but we don't think it's anything serious," McLellan said.


Jordan Staal breaks leg in Hurricanes preseason game

Tuesday, 09.23.2014 / 11:21 PM / News

Carolina Hurricanes center Jordan Staal broke a bone in his right leg in a preseason game at the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Staal, who was hit by Buffalo defenseman Josh Gorges in the third period, sustained the injury in his lower leg, general manager Ron Francis said in a statement released Tuesday night.

Staal will return to Raleigh, N.C., with the team Wednesday and be evaluated Thursday. A recovery timetable was not revealed.

"I'm concerned for sure. He's a big piece of what we're going to do moving forward," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said before the diagnosis, according to The Associated Press.

NHL, EPIX envision new level of all-access program

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

WASHINGTON -- Ross Greenburg has made a career out of taking hours of footage and turning it into award-winning television programming. His next challenge will be to re-invent what he already has done to make it new and compelling for a broader audience.

Greenburg, a 52-time Emmy Award winner formerly of HBO Sports who has partnered with the NHL on three previous all-access documentary series, will be the lead producer on the League's latest behind-the-scenes endeavor, this time with premium TV network Epix.

Epix and the NHL announced a partnership to produce and distribute a two-part, eight-episode, original all-access series debuting in December during a press conference Tuesday at Nationals Park, the home of the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

Epix is available in 54 million homes and on 450 digital devices, creating a greater opportunity for distribution than the NHL has had in any of its previous all-access endeavors. Sportsnet will air the series in Canada.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
