Rivalry Night Faceoff: Holtby vs. Mason

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

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 backstop his team into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Washington Capitals' Braden Holtby or the Philadelphia Flyers' Steve Mason.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals enter their Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2) separated by two points in the standings. Each team features a high-scoring offense and a defense that has had questionable performances.

They also have one other thing in common. Each has a goaltender looking to prove he can backstop his team to a long run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Can the Flyers' Steve Mason or the Capitals' Braden Holtby be that guy for his team?


Canucks take big risk by trading Luongo

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 11:49 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- In a little more than eight months, the Vancouver Canucks have gone from trying to choose between goaltenders Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider to having neither.

After shocking the hockey world, and both its goalies, by trading Schneider to the New Jersey Devils at the 2013 NHL Draft, Vancouver was at it again Tuesday. This time, they surprised even Luongo by sending him to the Florida Panthers, his former team, in a four-player trade on the eve of the NHL Trade Deadline.

Just like that, the best goalie in franchise history and his heir apparent are gone from the Canucks. In their place are rookie Eddie Lack and unproven prospect Jacob Markstrom, who was acquired from Florida along with center Shawn Matthias for Luongo and left wing Steven Anthony.

Just like that, Vancouver has gone from a proven veteran with almost 800 NHL games played, a run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and two Olympic gold medals, to two goalies with less than 70 games of combined experience in the NHL, no Stanley Cup Playoff experience, and lots of question marks.


Brodeur unsure he'll be with Devils after deadline

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 11:27 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- A sellout crowd of 16,592 fans packed Prudential Center on Tuesday night, and they were still chanting for their favorite goalie long after Martin Brodeur left the ice following the New Jersey Devils' 4-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings.

"We want Marty," they yelled in unison. "Marty, Marty, Marty…" they repeatedly chanted before and during the game.

If this was Brodeur's final game as a Devil, he went out in style, with his NHL-record 684th victory, all with the only franchise he has ever played for.

However, nobody, not even Brodeur, is sure if this was his final game with New Jersey because it's unclear if he will be traded before the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.


Daniel Sedin out indefinitely with lower-body injury

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury he sustained Sunday in the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic.

General manager Mike Gillis said Tuesday he did not know when Sedin would be able to return.

Capitals send Erat to Coyotes for Klesla, Brown

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 9:22 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

The Washington Capitals on Tuesday traded forwards Martin Erat and John Mitchell to the Phoenix Coyotes for forward Chris Brown, defenseman Rostislav Klesla and a fourth-round pick at the 2015 NHL Draft.

The Capitals said Brown and Klesla will report to the Hershey Bears, the Capitals’ American Hockey League affiliate.


Six goalies moved ahead of NHL Trade Deadline

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 9:15 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Goaltenders have been the hardest players to move before the NHL Trade Deadline during the past few years because the supply has far exceeded the demand.

Not anymore. At least not this year.

Goalies dominated trade discussion in the past few days, and they were all over the news Tuesday afternoon when four, most notably Roberto Luongo, were traded in a span of a few hours. Six goalies have been moved since Friday, including three who are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents after the season.


Devils' Jagr moves into ninth on all-time assists list

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr moved into ninth place on the NHL's all-time assists list Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings at Prudential Center.

Jagr picked up the 1,041st of his career on Travis Zajac's goal at 6:30 of the third period, moving him past Marcel Dionne. He is eight assists behind Gordie Howe (1,049) for eighth on the all-time list. Zajac's goal gave the Devils a 3-2 lead.

Jagr, who turned 42 on Feb. 15, has 700 goals and 1,741 points in 1,453 career games spanning 19-plus NHL seasons.


Capitals acquire Penner from Ducks

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 8:24 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


The Washington Capitals on Tuesday acquired forward Dustin Penner from the Anaheim Ducks, adding a veteran with postseason experience to their push for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Ducks get back a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft which they had previously traded to the Capitals.

The 31-year-old, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, said he hopes to be in the lineup when the Capitals visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night and added that he had no indication he was about to be traded.


Tallon: Panthers made statement with Luongo deal

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 8:20 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- For the Florida Panthers, bringing goaltender Roberto Luongo back to South Florida was about making a statement.

That was the message from general manager Dale Tallon, who said he consummated the four-player trade with the Vancouver Canucks after getting the go-ahead from owner Vinnie Viola, partner Doug Cifu, and new president/CEO Rory Babich, who took over on Monday.

"It is huge," Tallon said in a conference call Tuesday night. "He's a big name down here and it sets the tone for our franchise. Vinnie and Doug and Rory and I want to win the Stanley Cup, and talk is cheap, so we're acting and we're following up on what we said we would do. We're just looking to get better every day to achieve our goal of winning the Stanley Cup."

As other examples, Tallon pointed to the recent trade for former Chicago Blackhawks second-round pick Brandon Pirri and the re-signing of veteran forward Brad Boyes to a two-year contract. But those moves paled in comparison to the trade that brought Luongo for a second stint with the Panthers.


Roberto Luongo traded to Panthers by Canucks

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 7:26 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Vancouver Canucks have finally traded goaltender Roberto Luongo, moving him to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Vancouver traded Luongo and forward Steven Anthony to Florida for goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias.

Luongo has been the subject of trade rumors since losing his starting job to Cory Schneider during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"Stunned I think. I was not expecting it," Luongo told reporters in Phoenix. "It caught me off guard. [I'm] just happy for myself and my family and obviously a little sad to be leaving Vancouver."

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
