Healthy Crosby, capable call-ups propelled Penguins

Saturday, 03.29.2014 / 12:58 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

It didn't seem to matter who was in the lineup for the Pittsburgh Penguins, or how many key players were on the injured list -- and on most nights there were a lot.

Through all the issues the Penguins continued to win, and Friday they became the second team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. That spot in the postseason is just the first step for a team with aspirations of winning the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2009.

That can't happen until June. For now, here are five reasons the Penguins were able to punch their ticket to the postseason for the eighth consecutive season.

James van Riemsdyk of the Toronto Maple Leafs tied the NHL record for the fastest goal from the start of a period when he scored four seconds into the second period against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.

Tyler Bozak won the draw to van Riemsdyk, who raced into the Flyers zone and beat goaltender Steve Mason to tie the game 1-1.

"[Bozak] made the play, pretty much," van Riemsdyk told the Maple Leafs website. "We kind of looked at each other before that start of the faceoff and he decided he was going to try to push it ahead. ... He made a great play, I just fired on net."

Stars forward Peverley wants to return to play

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 9:31 PM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

DALLAS -- Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley said Friday he would like to return to the NHL if the time is right, but he'll need time to decide on his future as he recovers from a successful heart procedure.

"I feel great. I've gone back into my sinus rhythm (normal heartbeat) and I think under instructions of the doctors, I've been able to start working out and monitoring my heart rate," Peverley said in his first press conference since having the procedure last week at the Cleveland Clinic. "Going on the ice leisurely I think is something that shouldn't be a problem."

Peverley was able to take the ice Thursday for the first time since his procedure, which was to correct atrial fibrillation, the technical name for an irregular heartbeat.

"I went on the ice yesterday, and ultimately my goal would be to come back if it's the right time," he said.

Sabres prepare to honor Dominik Hasek

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 7:20 PM / Features

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Dominik Hasek was one of the top goalies in the NHL for most of his career. He may have been the best in the world during his nine seasons with the Buffalo Sabres.

The Sabres will induct Hasek into their Hall of Fame on Saturday night; they announced Friday that they will retire his No. 39 next season. Returning to the city where he made his biggest mark as a professional to be honored is something he's taken to heart.

"I'm very excited to be invited to Buffalo to be invited to go into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame, to be among these 51 or 52 people, I'm very appreciative," Hasek said. "To be back in Buffalo to meet and see some friends and people I worked with and spent such a great time with, it always means something for me."

Hasek joined the Sabres on Aug. 7, 1992, when he was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks. For the next nine seasons, Hasek earned his nickname of "The Dominator" by winning the Hart Trophy as the NHLs most valuable player twice and the Vezina Trophy as the League's top goalie six times.

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 4:08 PM / News

NHL.com

Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo will not play Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens, coach Peter Horachek said Friday.

Luongo sustained an upper-body injury Thursday in a collision with Carolina Hurricanes forward Radek Dvorak.

"It would be a lot different if we were right now fighting for the Presidents' Trophy or a certain [playoff] position," Horachek told the Sun Sentinel. "He's an important part of the team. It's not good to see him out, but it's an opportunity for Danny to step up and do the same thing and give us the same feeling."

NHL.com

Montreal Canadiens prospect and Kootenay Ice forward Tim Bozon has been discharged from Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Friday after falling ill late last month with a form of acute bacterial meningitis.

Last week, the condition of the 19-year-old was listed as critical but stable and improving as he battled Neisseria Meningitidis. At one point after being admitted to the hospital he was in a medically induced coma.

"From what I have learned since coming out of the coma, the people here at the Royal University Hospital went to amazing lengths to save my life," Bozon said at a news conference Friday, according to the website juniorhockey.com. "To them, first and foremost, my heartfelt thanks. But I must also extend gratitude to everyone who sent me their thoughts and prayers, especially my parents, who rushed here from France to be by my side."

Nearly two decades ago, Alex Broadhurst and his older brother, Terry, were just beginning to discover a shared love for the game of hockey.

"We had an unfinished basement, so it was all cement," Alex said. "We'd just put on our roller blades and go 1-on-1 for hours."

Fast forward to the present day, where the duo has moved to a much bigger stage. They're teammates on the Rockford IceHogs, the American Hockey League affiliate for the Chicago Blackhawks.
