Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is just shaking his head in disbelief at this point.

First a specially-painted mask that he was supposed to wear this past Saturday night at Soldier Field in the final game of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series never arrived. Now, his regular white-based goalie pads and accompanying gear are missing.

Crawford practiced Monday morning at United Center wearing the black gear with red trim that he wore in the Blackhawks' 5-1 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Asked afterward if he'd ever located the mask, Crawford shook his head.

NHL.com

The Edmonton Oilers signed goaltender Ben Scrivens to a two-year contract extension Monday.

Terms were not disclosed, but ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports it's worth $2.3 million per season.

Scrivens was traded from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Los Angeles Kings in the offseason in the Jonathan Bernier trade. The Oilers acquired him in mid-January for a third-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

"It's a great opportunity. Now the real work begins," said Scrivens, an Alberta native. "It's great to be here in Edmonton playing at home."

Blackhawks' Hossa (upper body) out 2-3 weeks

Monday, 03.03.2014 / 1:30 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will be without forward Marian Hossa for up to three weeks with an upper-body injury that happened this past Saturday night at Soldier Field in the final 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game.

Hossa was hit hard by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams while playing the puck behind the Pittsburgh net with 6:48 left in the first period and skated slowly to the bench. He remained seated for the rest of the period and didn't return to the ice.

"Probably two-to-three weeks we're looking at," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after practice Monday at United Center. "There's going to be some quality ice time shared amongst the guys [now]."

Fantasy All-Access: Calm before trade deadline storm

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET marks the NHL Trade Deadline, and after the dust settles will come a flurry of waiver wire activity and trades in fantasy hockey, as players' stocks rise and new opportunities arise.

The big names in play include Ryan Kesler (Vancouver Canucks), Ryan Callahan (New York Rangers), Thomas Vanek (New York Islanders) and Matt Moulson (Buffalo Sabres). If traded, it won’t change that they are great fantasy plays. Sometimes it is the under-the-radar moves that can provide a spark for your team.

On Feb. 28, 2011, the Sabres acquired Brad Boyes from the St. Louis Blues and he went on to score 14 points in 21 games. On Feb. 27, 2012, the Colorado Avalanche acquired Jamie McGinn from the San Jose Sharks and he finished the season with 13 points in his final 17 games. On April 3 of last season it was Jussi Jokinen, acquired by the Pittsburgh Penguins from the Carolina Hurricanes, who finished the year with 11 points in 10 games.

Senators, Canucks confident in playoff chances

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VANCOUVER -- In the jam-packed Eastern Conference, you can make a case that 12 teams have a chance to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs. So for the Ottawa Senators, there's certainly reason to believe their season is far from over.

The Senators' 4-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks in the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic on Sunday moved them within three points of the Detroit Red Wings for the final wild-card spot in the East.

For a team coming off one of its worst losses of the season three days earlier, a 6-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday, and starting a four-game road trip through Western Canada and Winnipeg, the win Sunday provided a needed dose of confidence.

"We hope it launches our march," Senators captain Jason Spezza said. "We had a tough one against Detroit. [Sunday] was a very important game. We knew that we needed this one. We have a tough trip. It's hard to come out here to Western Canada and play in all these rinks and take a lot of points. It's a necessity for us though. We hope this is a big jumping-off point for us."

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- Eddie Lack had just given up the go-ahead goal when the chants inside BC Place started up.

The Vancouver Canucks goalie knew they weren't for him.

As if getting a controversial start ahead of veteran Roberto Luongo in a key game wasn't enough pressure, the 26-year-old rookie had to hear 54,194 fans asking for the goalie sitting on the bench.

The chants of, "We want Lu!" rang out shortly after Cody Ceci put the Ottawa Senators ahead 3-2 midway through the second period of the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic on Sunday.
