Daily Primer Nov. 18: Ducks meet Penguins

Monday, 11.18.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Things haven't gone well recently for the Anaheim Ducks and Pittsburgh Penguins. Something's got to give when they face each other Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, RDS, TSN2).

Anaheim, which is winless in its past three games (0-2-1), concludes a four-game road trip at Consol Energy Center against the Penguins, who have lost four of their past five games.

"At the end of the day you've got to score, but if you're getting chances, I mean, I don't know what you really change," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said after the team's 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. "You try to go to the net just as much, work on those little things like stop at the net, get a screen, competing down at those areas. But ultimately it's a matter of putting it in when you get a chance."

Here's a closer look at the action Monday:

Flames' Monahan, Baertschi still works in progress

Monday, 11.18.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- They're both hailed as cornerstones of the Calgary Flames' future, but the trajectories for first-round picks Sven Baertschi and Sean Monahan couldn't be more different.

Baertschi and Monahan are finding the NHL's rigors to be a grind, but each is navigating through his rookie season as best he can.

"I've learned a lot," said the 19-year-old Monahan, who has now played 20 games. "Coming to the rink with NHL players, you learn something new every day. You've just got to soak up any information you get. The little details in this League are the biggest thing, and that's something I'm really paying attention to."

Struggling Penguins confident goals will come

Monday, 11.18.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Dan Bylsma compared the Pittsburgh Penguins’ scoring problems to a baseball player in a batting slump being worried about when he'll get his next hit.

The difference is the Penguins aren't worried about when they'll score their next goal, not with the chances they've been getting and the firepower they know they have.

"You don't always look at the production as an indicator that you're doing the right things," Bylsma said.

Offensive-zone time, shots on goal, shot attempts, and chances for and against are some of the key stats coaches look at to judge how their team is playing. Production, though, is all that matters in the end, and the Penguins haven't gotten enough of it in the past 12 games.

Pittsburgh enters its game against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday at Consol Energy Center (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2) having lost four of its past five games and seven of the past 12 because they simply haven't scored enough goals.

Sunday, 11.17.2013 / 11:45 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Kings goaltender Ben Scrivens admits it's a cliché, but it's the truth. When it comes to his play, he takes things one game at a time, one save at a time.

With a shutout streak now extended to 155:02 following his 37-save, 1-0 shutout against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, the 27-year-old is in a zone.

It's not the first time that Scrivens has enjoyed this kind of run. In fact, it's the third time in less than four years that he has collected consecutive shutouts.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
