Tuesday, 11.18.2014 / 9:16 PM / News

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux has sustained a lower-body injury and could be sidelined as many as two games, general manager Ron Hextall said Tuesday.

Hextall said Giroux was injured during practice Monday.

"He was examined by a doctor [on Monday night] and everything looked fine, but between [Monday] night and [Tuesday] morning the injury didn't react the way we had hoped upon further examination and we decided to shut him down," Hextall said.

Hextall said Giroux will miss the Wednesday Night Rivalry game against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN1, TVA SPORTS) and will likely be out Thursday against the Minnesota Wild at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.


Dry scrape scrapped by GMs, other topics put on hold

TORONTO -- There will no longer be a dry scrape of the ice surface between the end of regulation and the start of overtime.

Using the ice resurfacing machines to clean the playing surface was implemented at the start of the 2014-15 season with the hope that cleaner ice would help improve the play during overtime. The general managers, at their annual November meeting Tuesday, decided the process was taking too long.

Starting Saturday, the ice will be shoveled by hand, as is traditionally done during television timeouts, according to Colin Campbell, the senior executive vice president of hockey operations. It will be the only ice-cleaning procedure after regulation. There will be no ice-cleaning process before the start of the shootout.

"It's one of the few things that has never worked out," Campbell said. "It hasn't worked out. It's not good for the fans, it hasn't been good for the players. We were trying to come up with good ice, and we were trying to have more completions in overtime. Results aren't great at more completions in overtime, and more than anything it was a killer for everybody at the end of the game."

TORONTO – Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray did not want to share the fight he is waging against Stage 4 colon cancer.

Yet he knew he had to share it to help others.

In one of his first appearances since the advanced stage of his disease became public knowledge, Murray spoke in-depth Tuesday about his battle, which he revealed Friday during an interview with Michael Farber of TSN.

Murray, 71, said he initially wanted to keep his battle as private as possible, but he soon realized he had a platform that could be beneficial to getting the word out about preventative cancer screenings and decided that opportunity trumped a desire for privacy.

Arizona State University will become the 60th Division I hockey school, starting in the 2016-17 season, the school announced in a press conference Tuesday.

One of the most successful club teams in the nation, the Sun Devils will become the first Pac-12 school and the first school in the Southwestern United States to house a Division I hockey program. ASU won its first American Collegiate Hockey Association national championship in 2013-14, going 38-2-0.

"When I heard the news, I just thought that is a really cool thing," said Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving, who spent the past decade in the front office of the Arizona Coyotes before joining the Flames this summer.

According to the school, the elevation of the program was made possible by hockey supporters, including Don Mullett, the father of former Sun Devil hockey student-athlete Chris Mullett, who came together to donate $32 million.

Canadiens, Penguins view game as measuring stick

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens enter games Tuesday as the top team in the NHL, but doubts have swirled all season about their legitimacy in holding that spot.

Just about the only statistic that would suggest the Canadiens are an upper-echelon team is their 14-4-1 record, which is the most important one, but can sometimes be the most misleading as well.

The Canadiens, and the rest of the NHL, should have a better idea of where they stand by the end of this week, starting Tuesday when they put their six-game winning streak on the line at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30 p.m. ET) in a battle between the two Eastern Conference division leaders.

Montreal then welcomes the St. Louis Blues, the hottest team in the Western Conference, to Bell Centre on Thursday before visiting the rival Boston Bruins on Saturday and the New York Rangers on Sunday.

The Canadiens can erase or confirm the doubts surrounding their strong start to the season by the end of this brutal stretch.

New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh, who has missed the past eight games with a separated shoulder, skated on his own for the first time on Tuesday, according to the team.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault provided no timetable to his return to the lineup. McDonagh sustained his injury on Nov. 1 when he was checked into the boards by Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane in the first period of a 1-0 shootout loss. The Rangers captain is expected to be out 3-to-4 weeks.

Vigneault confirmed after practice on Tuesday that goalie Cam Talbot would start against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. It will be his first appearance in six games.
