The Bulletin Board keeps you abreast of the latest news
around the NHL Monday-Friday.
- The Bruins finally lost in regulation at the hands of
Winnipeg, 2-1. Boston had gone 14-0-1 since
October 29th. With the victory the
Jets went over .500 for
the first time this year. Boston
made sophomore forward Tyler Seguin a healthy scratch after he
missed a team breakfast.
- David Clarkson scored twice including the overtime
game-winner to help New Jersey beat Toronto 3-2. Clarkson, best known for being a pest, is now
for the Devils’ team lead with nine goals.
In the contest rookie Adam Henrique extended
his point streak to six games (two goals, five assists) and Zach Parise extended
his to five games (one goal, five assists).
A day after losing the goal-scoring lead Phil Kessel added his 17th
tally of the season to tie Jonathan Toews once again.
- The New York Islanders crushed Tampa Bay 5-1, sending the
Lightning to its fifth straight loss.
Despite the victory, the Islanders allowed a goal on the first shot of
the game by their opponent for the
seventh time this season, which is unfathomable. John Tavares snapped a
13-game goal-less drought with his first marker since October 29th. Tampa Bay has won
just three of its last 11 games and now leads the Islanders by a single
point for 13th place in the Eastern Conference.
Tampa Bay’s goaltending tandem of Dwayne Roloson and Mathieu Garon has been
atrocious, so the team had better trade for a legitimate netminder or risk
missing the playoffs.
- Josh Harding started in net for Minnesota last night with
Niklas Backstrom ailing, but when Harding was injured the Wild brought in
21-year-old rookie Matt Hackett, the son of
former NHLer Jeff Hackett. He led
the Wild to a 2-1 victory over San Jose.
Hackett is the ninth
rookie used by Minnesota this year.
- St. Louis scored twice in the third period to slip by
Detroit 3-2. Revival story Brian Elliott picked up his 11th victory of the young season, two
shy of his total from 2010-2011. The
Blues have needed brilliant goaltending – this was the first
time they scored more than two goals in regulation in nine games.
- Bruce Boudreau picked up his first victory as coach of
Anaheim as the Ducks topped Los Angeles 3-2.
Bobby Ryan scored the game-winner with just 49 seconds remaining in regulation.
- Brendan Morrison had four points and Jarome Iginla added
three to guide Calgary to a wild 7-6 victory over Carolina.
- Daniel Sedin posted a hat trick to lead Vancouver to a 6-0
demolishing of Colorado.
- Rick Nash’s shootout goal propelled Columbus by Montreal
- Harding, Kristian Huselius, David Booth, Devin Setoguchi, Roberto
Luongo and Corey Perry were all injured last night. Luongo and Perry returned to their respective
- James van Riemsdyk is expected
to return to Philadelphia’s lineup tonight against Buffalo.
- Aaron Portzline of the Columbus
Dispatch reports that Carolina offered defenseman Tomas Kaberle and a
second-round pick to the Blue Jackets for Derick Brassard, but Columbus
rejected the proposal.
- The NHL suspended
forward Jordin Tootoo two games for running into Buffalo goalie Ryan
Miller, who was injured by Milan Lucic earlier this year.
- Philadelphia’s Max Talbot thinks
Claude Giroux is as good as former teammate Sidney Crosby.
- Apparently John Steigerwald of the Washington (Pa.)
Observer-Reporter penned a piece accusing Alex Ovechkin of steroid use, which led to this
- There are three games on the schedule
tonight. Philadelphia @ Buffalo will
be on Versus at 7:30 p.m.
