Canadiens counting on Price a little too much

Saturday, 12.13.2014 / 12:43 AM / NHL Insider

Carey Price
Goalie - MTL
RECORD: 16-8-1
GAA: 2.38 | SVP: .922

MONTREAL -- The Los Angeles Kings left Bell Centre on Friday like many other teams before them.

The Kings put 46 shots on goal, attempted 46 more against the Montreal Canadiens, and wound up with two goals and zero points in the standings.

"I think we came out with a good push early and didn't capitalize on chances," Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin said after a 6-2 loss they thoroughly controlled. "They got their opportunities and took advantage of it, and we were left kind of wondering, 'What's going on?'"

Carey Price was going on.

As dominant as the Kings were, the Canadiens goaltender was a bit more so. Price stopped all 28 shots through two periods, with 16 of them coming on five Kings power plays.

"We had a lot of really good chances; we totally dominated the first period," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "I think Carey Price was really, really good, wasn't he?"

Duclair glad to get chance to play for Canada at WJC

Friday, 12.12.2014 / 9:00 PM / 2015 World Junior Championship

Mike Brophy - NHL.com Correspondent

TORONTO – Some young men might be disappointed if their NHL team opted to send them back to junior hockey, even if it meant they were able to play at the World Junior Championship.

Anthony Duclair is not one of them.

The 19-year-old left wing for the New York Rangers, a Montreal native, jumped at the opportunity to join Canada for the 2015 WJC, which will be divided between his hometown and Toronto.

"I'm very happy and very excited to be here," Duclair said Friday at Canada's training camp. "(Rangers coach) Alain Vigneault asked me a couple of days after the roster came out what my thoughts were and I told him I wanted to be part of this tournament. With the tournament being in Canada and in my hometown, I really wanted to be a part of this and I'm happy I'm here."

Blues' Stastny surging as he sets to face Avalanche

Friday, 12.12.2014 / 4:18 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- The numbers may not have reflected it earlier in the season, but for St. Louis Blues center Paul Stastny, popping up on the score sheet more often recently is the reason why the Blues invested so heavily in him.

And the offensive numbers have accumulated just in time for Stastny to make his first appearance against the team he spent the first eight seasons of his NHL career with, the Colorado Avalanche.

The Blues play the Avalanche at Pepsi Center on Saturday. Stastny missed the Blues' first game against the Avalanche on Nov. 1 after sustaining a shoulder injury, so this will be his first game against the only teammates he knew for eight years.

"You just want to get that first one out of the way, but I'm excited," said Stastny, who has seven goals and 12 points in 21 games with the Blues this season. "I think I have a lot of friends [in Denver], not just hockey-wise.

"Once the puck drops, it'll just feel like a normal game. Sometimes the anticipation takes longer than normal, but it's part of the business."

Sharks unveil new jerseys for Stadium Series game

NHL.com

Larger numbers, a new shoulder patch and bolder, streamlined visuals are the highlights of the 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series jerseys unveiled Friday by the San Jose Sharks.

Given the Sharks and Los Angeles Kings will play at Levi's Stadium, a larger venue than typically used for hockey games, Reebok worked with the Sharks to create an amplified version of the hockey jersey with the hopes of looking sharper in the football stadium environment.

San Jose's jersey for the Stadium Series game will feature a horizontal striping look of teal, white and black on the front and all teal on the back. There will be a similar effect on the sleeves.

The numbers on the backs of the jerseys are 13 inches tall instead of the standard 11.5. The numbers on the shoulders are seven inches tall instead of the typical four. The design of the numbers have been simplified to make them easier to see from a distance, and the ones on the shoulders will be higher to help people who are sitting in elevated seats to view them.
