Daily Primer Nov. 24: Wings shuffle off to Buffalo

Sunday, 11.24.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Maybe a visit to the Buffalo Sabres is what the Detroit Red Wings to snap out of their funk.

The Red Wings pay an early-evening call on the last-place team in the overall standings Sunday, hoping they'll find a way to break out of a slump that has dropped them to fifth place in the Atlantic Division. Detroit is 1-3-5 in its past nine games, including a 4-2 home loss to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, but the Red Wings are 10-1-1 in their past 12 games against the Sabres and have won five of their past six visits to First Niagara Center.

Here's a look at Sunday's action:


Sunday Long Read: Sid vs. Ovi has defined generation

WASHINGTON -- There have been so many memorable moments, so many indelible images in the careers of Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby since they were the No. 1 picks in back-to-back NHL Drafts. Yet, the outcome of one shot could have made everything different.

The two superstars had willed their teams, Ovechkin's Washington Capitals and Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins, through six games of an epic, breathtaking Stanley Cup Playoffs series when they collided in a winner-take-all showdown on May 13, 2009 in the Chinatown district of the nation's capital. The series, which offered the potential for greatness and then delivered beyond anyone's highest expectations, had reached its climax.

Less than three minutes into Game 7 at Verizon Center, Ovechkin collected in stride a puck that had caromed off the boards. The red-clad crowd rose to its feet as its favorite Russian locomotive steamed past a helpless defenseman and moved in alone toward the goaltender.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have surprised many with their surge to the top of the Eastern Conference. A combination of leadership and skill, good coaching and solid goaltending is what Nate Thompson attributes to the team's success. Thompson, who has found the right fit in Tampa Bay, discusses life growing up in Alaska, the journey he took to the NHL and his new brother-in-law.

Kathryn Tappan: Growing up in Alaska what were some of the activities you participated in outside of hockey?

Nate Thompson: In Alaska fishing was the big thing. If I wasn’t a hockey player I’d be a fly fisherman. In the winter I actually skied and snowboarded. We also played hockey outside. I really enjoyed playing football. I was a running back and loved playing the game. I did so right up until I left to play hockey in Seattle [for the Thunderbirds in the Western Hockey League].


Daily Primer Nov. 23: California Dreamin' for Devils

Saturday, 11.23.2013 / 1:23 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The New Jersey Devils have already had a successful trip to California. A victory against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night would be a perfect ending.

The Devils come to San Jose after back-to-back overtime wins against the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings. New Jersey got a gift goal to win in Anaheim when the Ducks shot the puck into their own net, then used a historic one by Jaromir Jagr to win in L.A. Jagr's goal in overtime was the 690th of his career, tying him with longtime teammate Mario Lemieux for ninth place on the all-time list, and his 121st game-winner, equaling the record set by Gordie Howe.

Here's a complete look at the schedule on a busy Saturday:

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks goalie Viktor Fasth sustained a lower-body injury in pregame warm-ups Friday night and is being evaluated, the team said.

Fasth was expected to start against the Tampa Bay Lightning but Jonas Hiller was inserted after Fasth was hurt. Fasth missed 14 games earlier this season with a lower-body injury, and Frederik Andersen capably filled his spot.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
