Sharks pull out all the stops for super-fan Tageson

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 3:39 PM / News

Sam Tageson has long worshipped the San Jose Sharks as his favorite NHL team. But even he was overwhelmed when the organization decided to dedicate an entire day to one of its biggest fans.

Working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Sharks pulled out all the stops for Tageson, 18, a lifelong fan struggling with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a life-threatening heart condition. Tageson was informed two weeks ago that he would be spending the day with his favorite team. But that wasn't enough to prepare him for the special day at SAP Center at San Jose.

It started Tuesday morning when Tageson officially signed a one-day contract with the club, complete with an appearance by Sharks general manager Doug Wilson and the obligatory media scrum. Surrounded by reporters and photographers, it was just the first in a series of thrilling moments for Tageson, who has been playing hockey since age 6.

On the 'D'-fence: Tough pill powers Coyotes' Yandle

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

The United States Olympic team was announced on New Year's Day following the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. While those named to the roster were celebrating their selections, Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle was left to wonder what he could have done differently upon being left behind.

Yandle thought he gave himself a great chance to be selected to the roster with his first-half performance, calling his omission from the team "a tough pill to swallow."

The good news for the Coyotes and fantasy owners of Yandle is that rather than sulk, he used the experience as motivation and has been one of the most productive defensemen in the League since the Olympic break.

Make no mistake, his first half numbers were impressive. He picked up seven goals and 31 points over his first 58 games this season, good for .66 points per game. That would tie him for 11th in the League in points per game among defensemen, had he continued along at that pace.

He was firing 2.78 shots on goal per game and had contributed 22 power-play points.

Over the Boards: Giroux fuels Flyers' resurgence

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / Over the Boards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- During an interview that lasted less than six minutes Tuesday morning, Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux used the word "we" 18 times and "team" 10 times.

What he wouldn't do, even when pressed, is talk about himself.

That's not surprising because Giroux has always been a team-first guy, but it is ironic considering everyone else in the Philadelphia dressing room has no problem saying Giroux is the player at the heart of the team's turnaround this season.

"When he's going, everyone is going," Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds said.

Daily Primer March 19: Central Division showdown

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The St. Louis Blues are attempting to nail down the Central Division crown, the Presidents' Trophy -- and, ultimately, their first Stanley Cup. The Chicago Blackhawks have a chance to gain ground on the NHL standings leaders Wednesday night.

St. Louis, which has an eight-point lead atop the Central, will seek its fourth straight win when it faces the Blackhawks at United Center (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2). Chicago, the defending Stanley Cup champion, managed to get a point in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

"We know how good they [the Blues] are as a team, they're playing well," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said. "It comes down to how prepared we are and how bad we want it. That's what it's all about."

Here's a closer look at the action Wednesday:

Rivalry Night Faceoff: Miller vs. Crawford

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 2:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

To help celebrate NBC Rivalry Night, NHL.com will look at a rivalry within the rivalry of the featured game on Wednesday nights. For this week, we are trying to determine which goaltender is better equipped to lead his team to the Stanley Cup, Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks or Ryan Miller of the St. Louis Blues.

Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford won the Stanley Cup last year, but he still has critics who need to see more to be convinced he's among the elite players at his position in the NHL. St. Louis Blues goalie Ryan Miller has an Olympic silver medal from four years ago and nothing more, yet he has been referred to as the final piece to his new team's championship puzzle this season.

The comparing statements don't seem to add up, but neither is all that farfetched considering Crawford still hears about inconsistencies in his game and Miller has been almost unbeatable since joining the Blues from the Buffalo Sabres on Feb. 28.
