BOSTON -- New York Rangers center Derek Stepan sustained broken ribs during the second period of a 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Friday and will be out indefinitely, coach Alain Vigneault said.

Stepan was injured 8:06 into the second period when he made a pass up the right side of the Rangers' zone and was hit on the forecheck by Bruins forward Matt Beleskey. Stepan hit the wall awkwardly and had to be attended to by a trainer. Stepan skated off and didn't miss a shift the rest of the second period, but he did not play in the third.

"We lost a really good player and a key player for us, and hopefully he's going to be back soon," Rangers forward Derick Brassard said.

Sharks' Couture participates in full practice: report

Friday, 11.27.2015 / 4:30 PM / News

San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture participated in a full practice on Friday for the first time since sustaining a fractured right fibula Oct. 15, according to CSN Bay Area.

Couture took part in practice for 40 minutes and wasn't on a specific line. He worked with development coach Mike Ricci prior to practice, testing out his ankle.

"[Couture] looked great," Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said. "Obviously it's a process, and we're just starting to ease him back in to the group with his fitness and everything else, but it was really nice to have him there and I think it's a lift for the guys."

Super 16: West teams have faced longer road trips

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

By in large, the challenge of playing and making the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the Western Conference is considered to be greater than playing and making it in the Eastern Conference because of the strain of long travel created by the considerable distance between cities.

The Eastern Conference may have more competition (two more teams), but travel in the Western Conference literally creates a longer road to the playoffs.

The stress of playing in the West has been magnified a quarter of the way through this season by the duration of the road trips and the amount of games outside of the Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones the majority of the teams have already completed or are currently going through.

Eight of 14 teams in the Western Conference have already had road trips of five games or longer, including recently completed seven-game trips by the Colorado Avalanche (4-3-0) and Vancouver Canucks (1-4-2), and the perfect six-game trip by the San Jose Sharks (6-0-0).

Rangers' Lundqvist early favorite for Hart Trophy

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault put the pressure on goalie Henrik Lundqvist in their exit meeting after last season by telling him to be prepared to be better at the start of the season. It was a message based on Lundqvist's recent history of starting poorly.

Lundqvist has done better than just respond to Vigneault; he's put himself on pace to win the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player. He is off to arguably the best start of his 11-season career with 12 wins, a 1.94 goals-against average and .939 save percentage through 18 games.

Canadiens' Price out at least one week with injury

Thursday, 11.26.2015 / 5:11 PM / News

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was placed on injured reserve Thursday and will be out of the lineup for at least one week, coach Michel Therrien said.

"We don't know how long Carey will be out, but for us, it's business as usual," Therrien said Thursday after practice at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. "We're focusing on tomorrow's game."

Mike Condon will get the start Friday at the New Jersey Devils, who the Canadiens will host Saturday to begin a stretch of four out of five games at Bell Centre.

Montreal called up goaltender Dustin Tokarski on Thursday from St. John's in the American Hockey League to serve as Condon's backup Friday.

Oilers' Yakupov out 2-4 weeks with ankle injury

Thursday, 11.26.2015 / 3:54 PM / News

Edmonton Oilers forward Nail Yakupov will be out of the lineup 2-4 weeks with a sprained ankle he sustained Wednesday when he was taken to the ice by an official during a 4-1 loss at the Carolina Hurricanes, the Oilers said Thursday.

During a faceoff at center ice early in the second period, Yakupov got his legs tangled with linesman Matt MacPherson, and each went down to the ice. Yakupov did not put any weight on his left leg while being helped to the Oilers dressing room at 2:22.

"It could have been significantly worse based on what happened," Oilers coach Todd McLellan said Thursday. "Hopefully, he heals quickly."

Leading 2-1 after 40 minutes, the Montreal Canadiens scored three unanswered goals in the third period to earn their third consecutive victory, pull into sole possession of top spot in the NHL standings and halt the New York Rangers' home winning streak at nine games (their longest such streak since 1971-72).

* At 17-4-2 (36 points), the Canadiens lead the League in wins (tied w/ DAL) and points. The victory propelled them ahead of the Rangers (16-4-2, 34 points) and idle Stars (17-5-0, 34 points), who share second place in terms of points.

* Carey Price made 22 saves before being replaced by Mike Condon (11 SV) to start the third period. Price earned the decision to improve to 12-5-1 in 19 career regular-season appearances against the Rangers (1.74 GAA, .943 SV%, 7 SO).

Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
