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.

Monday, 03.03.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


The Dallas Stars will continue their pursuit of a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in a nationally televised game Monday.

Dallas, which currently sits in the second wild-card spot due to games in hand on the Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks (all three teams have 66 points), will host the Buffalo Sabres at American Airlines Center (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

Here is a closer look at the action Monday:


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."


Tortorella defends decision to start Lack over Luongo

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.

MacArthur makes most of stadium opportunity

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

VANCOUVER -- Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur was hoping he'd get this opportunity years ago.

As a young player with the Buffalo Sabres, he was sent to the American Hockey League two days before the 2008 Winter Classic against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a landmark event that set the precedent for the numerous stadium games that would follow. So when MacArthur took the ice for Ottawa at the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic at BC Place on Sunday, he made sure not to squander another opportunity to play on one of hockey's grandest stages.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
