Malkin didn't participate in every drill, but did a majority of the work. He centered a line with Nick Spaling and Patric Hornqvist.

IGINLA RECORDS 1,200TH CAREER POINT IN WIN OVER PREDATORS

Jarome Iginla (1-0—1) recorded the 1,200th point of his NHL career in the Colorado Avalanche’s 3-0 shutout victory over the Nashville Predators. The Avalanche improved to 21-18-11 (53 points) this season and passed the idle Dallas Stars for sole possession of fifth in the Central Division standings. With the win, Colorado also extended their season-high home winning streak to four straight games and are 6-1-0 in their last seven games at Pepsi Center.

* With his team-leading 16th goal of the season, Iginla became the 47th player in NHL history to record 1,200 points (576-624—1,200) and tied Dino Ciccarelli for 46th on the NHL’s all-time points list. With 576 career goals, Iginla is also one shy of tying Mark Recchi for 19th on the NHL’s all-time goals list.

* Iginla has scored in three consecutive games and netted a team-high seven goals in the month of January. Additionally, Iginla has recorded 60 points (35-25—60) in 55 career games against Nashville and passed Nicklas Lidstrom for sole possession of second-most points all-time against the Predators franchise, trailing only Pavel Datsyuk (71 points).

Containing Ovechkin unique challenge for Canadiens

Saturday, 01.31.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- When facing an elite scorer, a common last-gasp tactic is to hit him early, hit him hard, and hit him often.

Assuming you can catch him, the strategy should bear fruit as the star player will begin to wear down, and ultimately, or hopefully, become a little tentative to go to the areas of the ice where he can hurt you.

As the Montreal Canadiens prepare to face Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at Bell Centre on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; NHLN-US, SN), they know that is not an approach that will slow down the hottest goal scorer in the NHL.

The problem with hitting Ovechkin is not catching him; it's avoiding hurting yourself while doing it.

"I've lined up beside him a few times," Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher said after practice Friday. "I actually tried to hit him a couple of times. That didn't go well."

Coyotes GM Maloney says 'everybody up for grabs'

Friday, 01.30.2015 / 2:31 PM / News

NHL.com

Arizona Coyotes general manager Don Maloney has made an honest appraisal of his team and has decided it's time for the Coyotes to make some changes to the roster.

"Where we're at, we have to look at everybody and everything," Maloney said Friday during an appearance on TSN 1200 in Ottawa. "There's nobody we wouldn't talk about in a deal. … Shane Doan isn't going anywhere. Oliver Ekman-Larsson we would be very reluctant to part with."

Among the players who could be most desirable for other teams are center Antoine Vermette and defenseman Keith Yandle. The NHL Trade Deadline is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

"When you're sitting with our record, then everybody is up for grabs," Maloney said. "If there's a deal out there that will make us better long-term … we're not doing anything to plug a hole short-term."

Brodeur made early impression on Penguins' Crosby

Friday, 01.30.2015 / 2:14 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby can recall like it was yesterday his NHL debut against one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of the game.

It was Oct. 5, 2005 at what was then known as Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, N.J., against New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur. Crosby would finish his rookie season with 39 goals and 102 points, but Brodeur had his number on this day in a 5-1 win for the Devils.

"I had a great chance on my first shift and he made the save; that will always be a big memory for me," Crosby said. "When I look back on that moment, it's the only time I can remember smiling or laughing at missing a scoring chance. It was my first NHL game, my first shift and you get robbed by Martin Brodeur.

"It could be a lot worse."

Perron, Faulk pushing for must-own fantasy status

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

In this week's edition of fantasy hockey's "Hot Topics," I'll be suggesting five players that need to be owned in far more leagues for the remainder of this season. Let's jump right into the discussion.

1. David Perron, Pittsburgh Penguins, LW/RW -- owned in 70 percent of Yahoo leagues

Why isn't Perron's ownership higher? Do people realize he got traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the Penguins? That he's playing on the top line with Sidney Crosby? And receiving tons of ice time on one of the NHL's top power-play units? Perron needs to be owned in just about every fantasy league. In 10 games with the Penguins he has six goals, three assists, 10 penalty minutes, three power-play points and 44 shots on goal (4.4 per game). While his minus-5 rating has been a disappointment since joining his new team, he's been a fantasy force in every other category.

Goaltender Martin Brodeur, who signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Blues on Dec. 2, officially announced his retirement after 22 NHL seasons. He will remain with St. Louis as a senior adviser to the general manager.
