Lightning's Stamkos gives tips to Rays pitcher Cobb

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos is among the best in the world at what he does. The same could be said for Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb.

Cobb, along with Stamkos and some of his teammates, showed their skills in each sport Friday at Amalie Arena.

After talking to coach Jon Cooper and watching the Lightning practice from the bench, Cobb put on skates and shot pucks with Stamkos. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Stamkos said Cobb's hockey skills needed some work but that Stamkos was impressed by Cobb, a right-handed pitcher, shot the puck left-handed and right-handed.

"It's fun to have athletes come out and experience the sport and realize it's a little tougher than they expected, especially out on the ice," Stamkos said according to the Tampa Tribune. "It's a bit easier for us to throw a baseball around than for them to get on skates. But he showed a lot of improvement in the 15 minutes we were out there, so it was good."

Defending AHL champ Texas Stars a model of stability

Friday, 10.10.2014 / 12:58 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

Perhaps the only guarantee in the world of sports is there are no guarantees. Players get injured, coaches get fired, and general managers trade away the past in order to make the future better.

In the American Hockey League, the stability of it all is often so precarious that many teams are unable to get out from under it. For the Texas Stars, a season removed from winning the franchise's first Calder Cup, stability is something they have in spades.

Of the 28 names recently engraved on the Cup, 18 are returning to Cedar Park for the start of the 2014-15 season, which begins Friday. This core knows not only how to win, but how to win together, a luxury not many other teams can tap into.

"It was a great experience for everyone last year, and it gives everyone that much more confidence and that much more experience getting to go on a big run like that," said second-year pro Curtis McKenzie. "Now everyone knows we can be champions."

Storylines abound as all 30 teams play Saturday

Friday, 10.10.2014 / 12:30 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

For only the sixth time in NHL history, all 30 teams will be in action on a single day during a 15-game Saturday.

It starts at 7 p.m. ET with nine games and will end on the West Coast with 10 p.m. ET starts in San Jose and Vancouver. During the first half of the 9 p.m. ET hour, 26 NHL teams will likely be playing at the same time.

The last time there was a 15-game day was April 7, 2012, which was the final day of the 2011-12 regular season. That day featured 88 goals, players representing 15 countries and 274,230 fans in attendance.

The first 15-game night in League history was Oct. 5, 2005, with every team playing on opening night after the 2004-05 lockout. It also happened once early in the 2007-08 season and twice in three weeks in October 2009.

This is the first of two 15-game days for the 2014-15 season. The last day of the regular season, April 11, 2015, will also feature all 30 teams playing.

Canadiens' Bozon assigned to junior team

Friday, 10.10.2014 / 12:11 PM / News

MontrealCanadiens.com

MONTREALMontreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced today that forward Tim Bozon has been assigned to his junior team, the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League.

"Tim Bozon has come a long way. He fought a life-threatening disease with courage and determination and we are pleased with what he accomplished in the last few months. He was able to take part in the rookie camp, the Canadiens' official camp and the Hamilton Bulldogs training camp. However, with his progression having been diminished due to illness, we feel that one of the priorities for his long term development is for him to fully regain his physical strength. We believe that joining the Kootenay Ice in the WHL is the right decision at this time as it will allow Tim to fully recover", said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
