Iginla sits out Bruins game vs. Red Wings with injury

Thursday, 04.03.2014 / 2:06 AM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The Boston Bruins played without forward Jarome Iginla against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena due to a lower-body injury, but coach Claude Julien said the injury isn't serious.

Iginla, who participated in the Bruins morning skate, was a late scratch and was replaced in the lineup by Jordan Caron, who started on the third line. Loui Eriksson took Iginla's spot at right wing on the top line.

"He's day to day," Julien said after the Bruins' 3-2 loss to the Red Wings. Asked if iginla could have played if it were a playoff game, he replied, "That's why [it's] day-to-day. It's not a major injury here. He skated this morning."

Blackhawks' Toews to miss rest of regular season

Thursday, 04.03.2014 / 2:02 AM / News

NHL.com

Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss the remainder of the regular season, but is expected to be "100 percent" for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday.

Jonathan Toews
Center - CHI
GOALS: 28 | ASST: 40 | PTS: 68
SOG: 193 | +/-: 26
The Blackhawks have six games remaining and are third in the Central Division with 99 points, three fewer than the second-place Colorado Avalanche, Chicago's likely opponent in the First Round.

"We're not gonna play him for the rest of these six games so he'll be ready to go [for the playoffs]," Quenneville said.

Toews sustained an upper-body injury Sunday when Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik checked him hard into the boards. He is third on the team with 28 goals and 68 points in 76 games.

Daily Primer April 3: Playoff preview in San Jose

Thursday, 04.03.2014 / 2:00 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

NHL.com

The Edmonton Oilers nearly did the San Jose Sharks a favor Wednesday night, but they blew a 2-0 lead in the third period in a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Instead, the Sharks enter Thursday three points behind the Ducks instead of one in the Pacific Division race. San Jose will look to get back within a point of Anaheim when it hosts the Los Angeles Kings at SAP Center (10:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

Should the Sharks (48-20-9) be unable to pass the Ducks in the standings, they would almost certainly face Los Angeles (45-26-6) in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Kings are 3-0-1 against the Sharks this season.

Here's a closer look at the action Thursday:

Trade to Flyers revived goalie Mason's career

Wednesday, 04.02.2014 / 7:09 PM / NHL Insider

Steve Mason
Goalie - PHI
RECORD: 31-17-7
GAA: 2.53 | SVP: 0.916
Steve Mason says he was ready to walk away from hockey. The game he'd loved since childhood had become a chore.

As the conclusion of the 2012-13 season approached, Mason was at a crossroads. Tossing his goalie pads in the trash seemed like the best, perhaps only, course of action.

One year later, Mason's angst is a distant memory. His smile is omnipresent and the pads he was ready to trash have earned him his second 30-win season. He's virtually assured of making his second trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and he has a three-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers that starts in July.

Thursday, Mason will celebrate the one-year anniversary of his arrival in Philadelphia. Coincidentally, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the team that traded Mason to Philadelphia, will be the opposition.

Red Wings' Babcock focused solely on the present

Wednesday, 04.02.2014 / 3:21 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- It was one of the most enduring images from this year's installment of HBO's "24/7: Road to the Winter Classic," which previewed the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic played between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Jan. 1.

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock stood in front of a white dry-erase board in the locker room putting a patchwork of unfamiliar numbers into his lineup. He added forward Gustav Nyquist's No. 14 to the top of an injury list eight players long that was written vertically down the right side.

"These people don't matter," Babcock said, circling his hand around the injury list.

Circling his hand around the lineup, he continued: "These people matter."

Price, top line help send Canadiens to playoffs

Wednesday, 04.02.2014 / 1:57 PM / Drive to the Playoffs

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

On paper, the Montreal Canadiens have no business being where they are, with an invitation to the Stanley Cup Playoffs already in hand with 11 days remaining in the NHL regular season.

The Canadiens have a negative goal differential at 5-on-5, their possession numbers as a team are in the bottom half of the League, their power play is in the middle of the pack, they have yet to find consistent pairings on defense and they give up far too many shots on goal.

Yet here they sit, staring at a likely first-round matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning and with a comfortable lead on the teams fighting to grab the two Eastern Conference wild-card spots.
