Blues' top line is scoring, and shutting down scorers

Saturday, 02.07.2015 / 3:54 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Once St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock went back to an old reliable forward line, it was a matter of time before it would begin to click on all cylinders.

The Blues' top line of Alexander Steen, David Backes and T.J. Oshie has put together quite the offensive run in recent weeks.

Since the Blues' post-Christmas schedule, Steen, Backes and Oshie have been on the scoresheet on a regular basis, and the Blues are accruing points at a rapid pace.

The Blues (34-14-4), who host the Chicago Blackhawks (32-18-2) Sunday (12:30 p.m. ET; NBC, SN360), have received 65 points (33 at even-strength with all three players on the ice) in 18 games from the line, an average of 3.6 per game.

The longest game in the history of the NHL lasted more than 176 minutes, and ended when the Detroit Red Wings' Mud Brunteau scored in the sixth overtime to beat the Montreal Canadiens in a Stanley Cup Playoff game March 24, 1936.

That's just a warm-up compared to what Dr. Brent Saik and his friends are doing.

On Feb. 6, Saik was one of 40 players to start the fifth World's Longest Hockey Game, an event that raises money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. All proceeds go toward purchasing a piece of equipment for the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.

Rangers goalie Lundqvist tells fans he's feeling better

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist thanked his friends and fans for well-wishes and said he is starting to feel better in his recovery from a vascular injury.

The Rangers announced Friday that Lundqvist would miss three to five weeks because of the injury, sustained Jan. 31 during a game against the Carolina Hurricanes when he was hit in the throat by a puck.

Lundqvist used his verified Twitter account to make his first public comments on his injury.

"I can't be on the ice right now, it's disappointing. I'm focused on doing everything I can for a fast recovery with help from our great staff," he wrote. "It's all under control and I feel better and better but right now I need some rest to heal. Thanks again for your support!"

Bruins' Chara used time off to get real estate license

Saturday, 02.07.2015 / 10:56 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Most NHL players will set their sole focus on getting healthy when they're out with an injury.

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara isn't like most NHL players, and not only because he's the tallest ever at 6-foot-9.

The Boston Globe reported Saturday that Chara, 37, has become licensed to sell real estate in Massachusetts.

Chara tore a ligament in his left knee Oct. 23; rather than lie around between daily rehab sessions each day, he enrolled in a real estate program. He passed his licensing exam during the NHL All-Star break last month and received his license that day.

"I like to keep as many doors open as possible for the future," Chara said, according to the Globe. "I just felt that while I was obviously not traveling as much with the team, I had so much time, especially early into my rehab, I decided to take some courses and I ended up going for the [exam]."

Burakovsky ranks ninth among NHL rookies in assists this season and tied for 10th in points.

Burakovsky appeared in two games with Hershey this season, making his AHL debut on Dec. 19 at Lehigh Valley. Burakovsky registered 87 points (41g, 46a) in 57 games with the Erie Otters (OHL) in 2013-14. He was named the OHL Player of the Month for March after tallying 24 points (12 goals, 10 assists) in 12 games during the month and recorded a league-high plus-22 rating. The 6’3”, 198-pound center led Erie to the best regular-season record in franchise history (52-14-2-0, 106 points) and finished the season ranked ninth in the OHL in goals (41), tied for sixth in power-play goals (15), third in game-winning goals (10) and tied for eighth in plus/minus (+46).

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
