Quenneville: Blackhawks not hitting panic button yet

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 4:18 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- They've lost three straight games and five of the first seven during an eight-game homestand, but the Chicago Blackhawks haven't hit the proverbial panic button.

Asked after practice on Monday if the Blackhawks had started to panic a little with 22 games left, coach Joel Quenneville quipped, "No, but the 'Get Attention' button is where I'm at."

His answer was met with a tongue-in-cheek follow up question, and it provided a good assessment of Quenneville's outlook at the moment.

"Do you have one of those?" a reporter said.

"Absolutely," Quenneville replied, jabbing his index finger in front of him. "I got it pushed."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen said Monday that he could make his season debut Saturday against the New York Rangers.

Timonen will travel with the Flyers this week to road games at the Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs but won't play. Instead he'll use the three days of practice to continue rounding into form.

"Tomorrow morning skate, Wednesday good practice and Thursday morning skate," Timonen said. "Those are the next steps -- more practices."

Timonen, who will turn 40 on March 18, has not played since being diagnosed with blood clots in his leg and lungs in August. But he began skating on his own Feb. 6 and has been practicing with the Flyers since Feb. 17.

Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller is headed back to Vancouver to get an MRI after sustaining a lower-body injury Sunday in the second period of a 4-0 win against the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, general manager Jim Benning said Monday.

At 1:11 of the second period with Vancouver leading 1-0, Miller was run into by teammate Jannik Hansen, who crashed into the net and made contact with Miller's right leg. Miller went to the dressing room and did not return. Backup Eddie Lack relieved Miller and made 27 saves.

"Eddie can carry the load going forward if he has to," Benning said. "Jacob has been outstanding in Utica too. We have great depth at goaltender."

Capitals' top line has had revolving cast at right wing

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 9:20 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

PHILADELPHIA -- During the Washington Capitals pre-game line rushes against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday, Andre Burakovsky skated with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, completing the Capitals first line.

Coach Barry Trotz ultimately scratched Burakovsky after deciding Washington was in need of a jump-start, inserting Jay Beagle into the starting lineup instead. Beagle's stint on the line was short-lived; Marcus Johansson replaced him after two shifts and a holding penalty, remaining there for the rest of Washington’s 3-2 loss.

"I think we weren't sharp at all," said Backstrom, who was held without a point after having seven in his previous four games. "It doesn't matter who plays with us, to be honest with you."

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
